    This was the sweetest little hotel. We were just in Coimbra for one night but wish we could’ve stayed two! Staff were super helpful and they upgraded us to one of the apartments for no charge. Free breakfast buffet was great!

    Beware hotel with no compassion & no common sense

    My flight was cancelled due to a fuel issue. Passengers stayed on the aircraft for 4 hours until the captain advised that the flight was cancelled and that all passengers had to leave the aircraft. I had a reservation for 2 nights at this hotel to attend a wedding. I obviously missed the wedding and kindly asked the hotel for a refund. The hotel refused to issue a refund due to their non-refundable policy. I sent proof of the flight cancellation as well as photos of the maintenance crew onboard the aircraft and I kindly asked them to make an exception given the exceptional circumstances and they still declined. They offered a credit to be used within a year but as I mentioned to them, the purpose of my trip was to attend a wedding and that I would therefore not be going back to Portugal. I asked for the refund 6 hours after having reserved the room. I also asked for my request to be escalated to upper management and my request was ignored. Beware of this hotel as they have zero compassion and no common sense. My non-refundable car rental with budget was completely refunded as they acknowledged the exceptional circumstances.

    Construction in front of the building made it difficult to park and check in. Once we called the front desk, staff came out to help us carry our bags from the street.

    It is a beautiful boutique hotel located at the foot of the University of Coimbra and with beautiful views of the City. It is close to the main pedestrian walk and restaurants, however to access it requires a very hilly return, which was not a problem for us but it maybe for others
