Hotel D. Luis
Ranked #9 of 23 Hotels in Coimbra
Reviewed 1 May 2013

Our room had a terrific view. We could see the city. That is also a downside of this hotel. You would have to drive with a car to see the city centre. It is too far to walk. The breakfast area is large and has a lot of products, but when we we're there at 8:30 a lot of products (ham, cheese, eggs) we're not available anymore. The hotel has the vibe of a business hotel. So if you are planning to have a romantic getaway, then you can better stay somewhere else.

Quiet, comfortable and good food. What more do you want? Coimbra is a beautiful city and this is a great place to see it from. Sure would stay here again. The view alone is worth the price. Our evening meal was delious and served quickly and without issues.

Don't expect to find luxury in this hotel. However the price you pay in my opinion is very good if you look into the amenities the hotel provides to you ( wifi, parking...). If you look for a place to rest with a very nice view this is a good option and you won't regret, that's for sure. Rooms are simple, comfortable and very clean. The staff is helpful ( a small issue we told to the receptionist and he just rushed into it and solved it ) and ready to provide information about Coimbra. Last but not least...very good breakfast!

Stayed 2 nights in February.
Nice view of the old city and river but it is pretty far from the old centre/ old part of the city.
Room and bathroom were basic, dated. I didn't pay for the room therefore comment on the cost.
Restaurant was nice with good breakfast and dinner.

Hotel sits on hill overlooking great view of Coimbra, Good bed & free wifi. Hair in bathroom sink. Buffet had almost nothing for vegetarians! I would stay again but eat elsewhere. Good accommodations for the price.

The strongest asset of this hotel is the view over the beautiful city of Coimbra. Reception staff is very kind and helpful. Rooms are large and do have everything that comes with the price: free wi fi internet, free breakfast. What a pleasant experience. The restaurant is very good and at a good price, with helpful staff, always ready with suggestions. Just wonderful......a real asset to this hotel.
Breakfast was fantastic with a nice assortment and variety.The bar/livingroom area is surrounded by windows and is great place for romantic encounters. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Coimbra. Two thumbs up all the way.

I am at the moment sitting at the restaurant having my breakfast and with an amazing view over the city of Coimbra. Unfortunately thats the only good thing of this hotel, the view! Starting with the rooms, they are outdated, the bathroom had a terrible shower the keeped on falling in the tub, the beds were normal, but the worst thing of all is the noise!! You can hear everything! People talking two rooms down, your upstairs neighbor walking and the door slamming! I mean its rediculous, from the outside your door will only close if you slam it! This isnt normal, even if it is a 3 star hotel.
Just to finish off, although the breakfast is not that bad, it lacks variety and CLEAN DISHES! Prferebly some cups without lipstick from the previous guest! Best Western, never again!
