        • Single
          7.8

          This old hotel has been restored well including marble bathrooms and external facade. Internet in common areas and fantastic staff!

          Beautiful large room, but strange smell if air isn't ventilated.

        • Family with children
          9.6

          The hotel is a gem from a bygone genteel age. Its in a waterfront 200 year -or-so-old building and the decor is early to mid 20th century which is very charming; the lift even has a bench. Lovely place, great breakfast.

        • Couple
          7.0

          nice old-fashioned interior, good location, very good breakfast

          wi-fi only on the ground floor

        • Older travelers
          6.2

          Excellent location. Many rooms have a view of the river. The building maintains intact its grandeur and design of the 30s.

          The grandeur has long faded and nothing has been done to refurbish. All the furnishings look tired and the hall and room carpets are abysmal. The staff (one lone man at the front desk) is polite but distant and unhelpful.

        • Group of friends
          6.6

          Location is brilliant from being close to Main train station, busses, shopping, eating places, also close to historical sights and right across from Main Mondego river which crosses Coimbra.

          felt hotel cleanliness could have been better. Carpets maybe needing replacement and looked dirty.

        • Older travelers
          7.0

          The hotel itself is an old relic - not too bad despite the shabbiness. The room was large and quiet - the breakfast was ample. The location is good.

          The wall to wall rug in the room was musty and smelly. The tv was a relic from the 60's with terrible reception. Wifi is in the lobby only - with ones own computer. This hotel is a relic from the past - with the pluses and minuses of that - it could be a charming relic with a complete update.

        • Group of friends
          8.8

          Great nostalgic hotel.

          The restaurant is closed a couple of years ago. We were told that the good restaurant is then across from the old cathedral.

        • Older travelers
          7.8

          The location and the 1920s decor and our 3 windows.

          Had to wait until 11:30 pm for a chocolate fondue- shouldn't offer it if it can't be served sooner than that...thought it would be offered at time we wanted it... Not that great anyways...

        • Older travelers
          3.2

          Location

          This hotel is very run down it needs a major refurb to restore it to is former glory.

        • Couple
          7.8

          The hotel location was very good, at a walking distance from various attractions. Another thing that I liked was the ample rooms.

        • Family with children
          6.6

          We liked the location and the public areas of the hotel.

          The hotel must have been a gem in its hayday. Today, however, it is in need of a drastic overhaul. The rooms and hallways are dingy and warn. With a little bit of work it could be a wonderful place to stay. They do not have parking so we had to use a public lot across the street and had to refill the parking meter every few hours.

        • Couple
          7.8

          a bit old-fashioned and slightly dated, which I prefer a lot to over-designed modern hotels. great location.

        • Older travelers
          6.6

          Good breakfast, comfortable-size room, quiet (soundproof windows), good location near centre

          Plastic sheet on bed---a regrettable Portuguese habit; bed too short and small.

        • Group of friends
          8.2

          This is so called "historical hotel", and that status demonstrates its value in practice. Outdated furniture, high-ceilinged rooms, "antique" lift. Nevertheless, our room was clean and comfortable. Bathroom equipment was modern enough. Breakfast was worthy of note. The hotel is situated in the centre of Coimbra, 10 minutes walking from historical buildings of ancient Coimbra University.

          The pressure of water in our bathroom was not constant. Wi-fi was accessible only on the ground floor (near reception).

        • Older travelers
          7.0

          The most wonderful 30s decor with most of the original features in a superb location for exploring the sights of Coimbra. The Reception staff were most helpful and spoke good english.

          The decor was tired and I formed the impression that the whole place needed to be completely revamped, though kept in the original style. The atmosphere was 'dead' and needed livening up. The dining room would make a lovely restaurant and not just a breakfast room; and the lounge a wonderful bar and not just an empty space as no-one seemed to use it.
