Overall a very good hostel - certainly some of the best showers I've have had in a hostel. Bathroom a bit of a walk from the dormitory (across the stairwell and past the kitchen). Good location - not that noisy (if you close the windows) seeing as it's located right next to university and was at the start of the new academic year. Great time - would certainly stay again if I went back to Coimbra
The front desk staff were a bit stiff, but helpful with whatever you asked of them. The breakfast room lady was the real sweetheart, always smiling. Architecturally and historically, it is a really interesting place. There is so much of it that has survived from the days when staying at a swank hotel was a signifier of social standing - and therein lies its charm.
This pousada is near to Coimbre, just a short drive away. It is easy to access, on the edge of a small town. The staff are friendly and helpful, eager for you to get the best out of your stay. The rooms are large and have super balconies overlooking the gardens and views over the countryside. A relaxing place to appreciate the area.
This was one of the most enjoyabkle experiences I've ever had. I've stayed at 5 star hotels all over Europe and the US from NYC to San Francisco and this was the most delightful of all my travels. The service was outstanding and I had the best Sea Bass I ever tasted, and that includes the top resteraunts in NYC. The wines were delicious and inexpensive. I will be back within a year and I shared my experiences wirh all my co-workers. A most delightful experience to say the least.
This is a hotel where the sotaff gave been trained with a customer-oriented attitutude that they execute as if they are getting real pleasure from ensuring you enjoy your stay to the full.
The hotel amenities are excellent and the buffet dinner was of really high quality when most are simply of high quantity.
This was a thoroughly enjoy stay.
