I would recomend for example the Ibis hotel in Lisbon, It would be not very expensive, and I think it would fit your needs. But the best bet is to search and check here if the hotel is nicely located.

Regarding Coimbra, some nice day trips is to Conimbriga, an old Roman village with 2000 years old, Aveiro, Figueira da Foz, Luso <- Amazing Park, Tomar <- Amazing Templar castle.

Hope this helps!

Hi There,

The Ibis in Saldanha in Lisbon is very central and costs 60 euros per night for a double room. Near Coimbra if possible you should visit Quinta da Geia (www.quintadageia.com) for a lunch or dinner. Its a 60 minutes ride from Coimbra. If possible visit also Serra da Freita near Arouca where you shouldnt miss Pena (small village). In Mealhada you should try "Leitao". Dont forget also to visit Bussaco Palace, very romantic hotel and park.
