This is a great hotel, easy to find, easy to park, and with a very good quality. The rooms are nice and clean (altough the selection of TV channels could be improved). Wifi can be a bit slow, but it's free.
The view from the from rooms is amazing, with old Coimbra just in front of the window, on the other side of the Mondego river. The beds are comfortable, and the hotel is quiet, allowing a good quality of sleep.
Staff is friendly and helpful.
Breakfast is good (the orange juice could be better).
The main disadvantage is that the hotel is located outside Coimbra, thus if you want to see Coimbra by night, you will need to get a taxi.
The price was excellent.
This will be my choice when I return to Coimbra, for sure.
