10.0 Excellent
Pros: A very uniqe place with beautiful surounding! A huge room with style and character. Clean room and helpfull staff. Big and beautiful garden with a little river beside it. Great breakfast.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Characterful rural property with a beautiful garden. Room was cool and dark due to its position under a verandah. E xcellent breakfast. Friendly owner
Cons: Due to the age and nature of the property there was a musty smell. Very noisy creaking floor above us and plumbing above noisy too!
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The Quinta was a pleasant place to stay, a comfortable room with traditional furniture and good bedlinen and a new bathroom, It has rather strange surroundings but an attractive garden with a good pool and a nice country view. The owners are friendly. Breakfast is standard fare. We found restaurant im Lousa 'To dos Frangos' to be extraordinarily good value, massive portions very cheaply, beware the is a Locals section which is fun and a normal restaurant. 'Vilha' not quite so cheap but the delicious pork shin could easily have fed three!
Cons: The disadvantages are that, after a long tiring journey it was very difficult to find using GPS and the nearest restaurants are over three miles away in Lousa. The hot water supply is temperamental despite the fact we were the only guests. Wifi coverage is poor.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The staff very helpful and respectful
Cons: The farm is very small and dos not have restaurant for diner or lunch.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Great room, silence, great garden en pool, very nice breakfast and tasteful dinners. Perfect place to come to rest.
Cons: I was travelling by public transport, than the location is a bit outside but still manageable if you use taxis. For 2 dinners, 1 lunchbox and 1 clothing washing I paid 60 euros what is a bit high to Portugese norms.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: This place is set in farmland on the outskirts of Lousa and has great rustic charm. It is a good base for exploring the local area and is a very comfortable, quiet and relaxing place to stay. This is probably mostly to do with the philosophy expressed by Filipe (the son of the owners who met us on arrival): 'when you come through our gates you are at home'. Guests are genuinely trusted and encouraged to treat the property as their home. All the rooms are decorated with an individual theme, are comfortable and immaculately clean. The grounds are lovely with lots of places to sit quietly or to socialise with others. The pool is good for a cool off after a long day. Breakfast is simple but fresh and tasty. We also had dinner on one of our nights stay, enjoying fresh local cuisine and the company of some fellow guests. Highly recommended.
7.5 Good
Pros: Very well decorated room.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Staff very friendly and helpful. Pool area really relaxing. Liked the animals around us. The bar facilities really good and well priced. We enjoyed our balcony area.

Cons: There was no free parking on site as indicated on the website. Staff advised us where we could find free parking- had to drive a short distance to find it.

Cons: They didn't have free parking
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The breakfast was very nice!
Cons: We would have liked a room with view. We did not realize this when booking that the room only had a ceiling window. The room had an exterior bathroom, which required a key to open and close from the inside. This was a bit difficult, as the key mechanism was not the easiest and with two children.
7.9 Good
Pros: The hostel is in a quiet place not far from the center of the city and it is easy to visit by walk.. People were nice and breakfast too.
Cons: The room is not well soundproofed and you can hear everything the others are doing around. The floor is noisy too. Parking spots around the hostel are limited and most of them are not free
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The Hotel is beautiful, with spacious family rooms that feature amazing views, high ceilings, minimal but stylish furniture and decorations. Parking, check in and check out were smooth, plenty of info given on arrival by the kind member of staff, the buffet breakfast is well stocked with sweet and savoury, and the home made cake of the day keeps you smiling and going all day! This hotel is a must go!
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The location was great, a bit outside of the center but with a beautiful view and 15min walking distance to most main attractions. The room was light, spacious and clean. Simple but very pleasant.
Cons: The coffee at breakfast was very bad - instant coffee from a machine. Too bad, as breakfast itself was nice,
9.0 Excellent
Pros: + Stylish old house transformed into a hostel/hotel + our room was bright, with lots of windows + the bathroom was very spacious + good breakfast + a bit outside the old town, but still walking distance to all the main sights
Cons: - noise isolation was quite poor, so bring earplugs with you in case you are sensitive, as you will hear all the cars passing by on the street - parking is only available on the street and on weekdays you have to pay for it
7.5 Good
Pros: Lockers, private lamp and socket at every bed. Tasty breakfast included. Nice design of the common space. In general the building is looks great, it’s an old villa.
Cons: - location. I didn’t check it well and it’s quite some walk from the bus station/ city center - They could have put some curtains at each bed to add more privacy (as each bed has a frame so it wouldn’t be much work).

9.0 Excellent
Pros: The property was good value for money. The highlight was Caterina who was wonderful and helpful. she advised the highlights where to visit where to dine and everything was spot on. The most helpful person ever to give us information at any hotel in the world.
Cons: The feather pillows were too flat. A second pillow would be great!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Nice breakfast, €5, family-owned, wife speaks English really well, just a few steps from train station, modern inside, very clean, elevator. Surprised us by asking for cash payment, but were able to accept our American Mastercard in the end. I think they weren't sure if the electronic payment system would take it.
Cons: Tudo bem!
7.0 Good
Pros: The breakfast was ok, the bread could be more of the healthy sort. We agree with many of the plus and minus mentioned by other travellers.
Cons: We had asked for the free bikes about a month in advance,- and I have checked that booking.com did forward the request. Despite that the hotel did not take any notice. Furthermore they extended automatically the days other people borrowed the bikes, although we were waiting. They could have told the people that we had come in between. That was not a correct thing to do. They also told us that there was nowhere to rent a bike in Coimbra. There are at least 5 different places, one 100 meter from the hotel. Please make a place for the toilet paper in the bathroom.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The location is perfect, 3 minutes to train station and 10 mins climb to University (at a brisk pace). Catalina (sorry if I got that wrong) the owner is awesome and gave the best tips and places to eat. The balcony was a nice surprise!
Cons: The corridor on the third floor is quite hollow so sound carries. From room 37 which is close to elevator one can really hear pax coming in and out of elevator/rooms but nothing earplugs can't solve. Washroom a bit dated compared to rest of the room but I am not sure if they are in the middle of slowly renovating rooms as noticed my door and key (mine was a skeleton key) was older compared to the majority of the other rooms.
9.4 Excellent
Pros: Easy check in. Rooms are basic but for the night we stayed it was perfect.
Guesthouse Casa Pombal - Coimbra - Bedroom
7
8.6 Excellent (596 reviews)
C$ 61+
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Very friendly and helpful staff, great breakfast, comfortable room, nice old house, convenient position between the old town and the university.
Cons: Located at the top of a hill, so it gets tiring if you come and go a lot! All part of the Coimbra experience though.
2.0 Mediocre
Pros: The owner was helpful in giving us advice about the city and parking the car. The house had character
Cons: Apart from the dining room the house felt very run down and our room was frankly squalid. A horrible unidentifiable smell Barely any space around the beds to put anything not helped by sloping ceilings as it was an attic room. Paper peeling off the wall and old chipped paintwork. The heater fell off the wall. The sliding bathroom door only half shut. Ancient shower curtain hung in the bath and was constantly soaking wet. No soap. Couldn’t open one of the windows. We were going to stay three nights and we left after one. I’ve travelled in India Asia Africa and South America and cannot remember the last time I encountered a depressing room like this.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Nice old house at the top of the old town. It's a steep walk up but there are buses. We had a room right at the top of the house with a view over the town. Good location for visiting the university. Breakfast was very nice - good cheese and nice bread. - but it did not start until 8.30am.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Enjoyed my stay at the Casa Pombal - it was interesting to stay in the old city, near the university. The hostess was lovely and couldn’t have been more helpful. Breakfast was good and it was excellent value overall. I opted for a room without a private bath, but that was never an issue and the sink in the room was nice. Good location, though it was a stiff walk up the hill to return!
Cons: Being in an older house is part of the charm, but it also means creaky floorboards and hearing everyone coming and going. Some guests could have been more respectful by not having conversations at midnight.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Location is just perfect, attentious staff and a breathtaking view. Would stay again.
Cons: 3rd floor

8.8 Excellent
Pros: Linens were fantastic - especially the towels. Staff friendly and helpful. Quiet place.
Cons: A little far (and uphill on the way back) from attractions.
6.7 Good
Pros: The rooms are well equipped and the hostel itself is nice in terms of facilities and what it offers. Wifi is so basic though that it not working forced me to lower my rating for the facilities. It was generally pretty clean though
Cons: A lot actually, the self check in system meant we never got to encounter a single staff member till by accident we entered the kitched in the morning before checking out. The wifi didnt work at all, the ned was uncomfortable, the entire place was pretty much a ghost town, and granted we did arrive around 10, we still didnt see a single person in the morning. The whole experience was subpar at best, and honestly there were better options in the area, we chose this to take a break from airbnbs and get a more social experience, which we did not.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Room had everything what was needed, it was clean and the price was reasonable. I enjoyed staying in this place.
Cons: Place is located a bit far away from the city centre but I enjoyed walking so it wasn't a big deal to me.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Friendly place. Good car parking.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Be prepared to get the full residence hall vibe! Entering the accommodation was pretty easy, just call the staff (phone number on the door) and they will open the door for you. Also you‘ll receive an email with alle the information about check-in, wifi, etc.. wich also means you can do the check-in at any time. The rooms are small and simple but clean and cozy, you‘ll find everything you need, even had my own bathroom en suite. I arrived with a car and was allowed to park it on the courtyard, wich is a big plus, but parking on the street around the hostel is also free. Location wise, you‘ll make your way to the university and the botanic gardens in just a few minutes by walking down the hill. Enjoyed staying there, would recommend especially for young backpackers/travelers.
Cons: The kitchen is used by a lot of people, mainly students, so don’t expect it to be as clean as your kitchen at home, but for preparing your breakfast it’s all fine As i said, there are a lot of young people/students living there, so be prepared to hear them talking and laughing till late at night

There are at least 2 nice restaurants around and Coimbra-B train station is not far. Price is good given the quality. I will most certainly chose that hotel on my next business trip to Coimbra
Cons: No major issue, it is even hard pointing out minor issues. There was noise down the street at 22h30 once, maybe street cleaners, a bit surprising but room was quiet otherwise. It might not be the most central hotel but then again I have no comparison point.

Pros: Great room, silence, great garden en pool, very nice breakfast and tasteful dinners. Perfect place to come to rest.
Cons: I was travelling by public transport, than the location is a bit outside but still manageable if you use taxis. For 2 dinners, 1 lunchbox and 1 clothing washing I paid 60 euros what is a bit high to Portugese norms.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: This place is set in farmland on the outskirts of Lousa and has great rustic charm. It is a good base for exploring the local area and is a very comfortable, quiet and relaxing place to stay. This is probably mostly to do with the philosophy expressed by Filipe (the son of the owners who met us on arrival): 'when you come through our gates you are at home'. Guests are genuinely trusted and encouraged to treat the property as their home. All the rooms are decorated with an individual theme, are comfortable and immaculately clean. The grounds are lovely with lots of places to sit quietly or to socialise with others. The pool is good for a cool off after a long day. Breakfast is simple but fresh and tasty. We also had dinner on one of our nights stay, enjoying fresh local cuisine and the company of some fellow guests. Highly recommended.
7.5 Good
Pros: Very well decorated room.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Staff very friendly and helpful. Pool area really relaxing. Liked the animals around us. The bar facilities really good and well priced. We enjoyed our balcony area.
Cons: The room was large and spacious but being over the garage there was at times a smell of petrol.

9.0 Excellent
Pros: Great location and very friendly and accommodating staff. The welcome drink and especially the sunset glass of wine were a really nice touch! We got a room with a kitchenette which weren't as useful as we expected (which hadn't occurred to us before, totally our fault). We didn't have the essentials for cooking if we wanted to do that (salt, oil, etc.) so we would have had to buy all of those if we wanted to cook. Baring in mind we only stayed for the weekend, of course. So I'd only recommend this room for someone staying longer. The extra space it provides is quite empty, so no point for just a couple of days. Having said that, the hotel suited all of our needs for a touristy weekend in Coimbra. Breakfast was included and very well-served.
Cons: I didn't notice much effort from the hotel on an environmental front expect for the 'reuse your towel' thing. The decoration was on point in the communal areas, but I found the room itself a tad uninspired. On a more personal note, I would have appreciated if there would have been more vegan options at breakfast as well as on the restaurant menu. Of course, I wasn't expecting that but it would have been nice.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The hotel may not be decorated to suit everyone's taste. It has a "Joanna Gaines, meets Ikea" kind of vibe. The location of this hotel in the old town near the university is at the top of a very high hill. Great for walking to town, tiring for returning, but it's not really that big of a deal. The hotel is a small boutique hotel with lovely facilities and great staff. The food in the restaurant was very good as well.
Cons: Nothing, it is an exceptional hotel. I would have really LOVED it further down the hill, but then it would be in the lovey old bulding that it is in.

Pros: Great location, wonderful views, cool modern design in lovely renovated buildings, charming staff.
Cons: Nothing

Pros: The property was amazing. Great little wine cellar that they let us visit which was originally a water sewer that was discovered during renovations. Property was in walking distance of the sites we wanted to see in Coimbra. Breakfast was great and happy hour everyday at 6pm.

9.0 Excellent
Pros: Nice old house. Very friendly staff. Comfortable beds. Our family room was in the attic and only had a small window near ceiling for ventilation ( also had air conditioning so was comfortable) Separate bathroom down corridor had a fantastic view! Breakfast was very good.
Cons: There was no free parking on site as indicated on the website. Staff advised us where we could find free parking- had to drive a short distance to find it.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: It's lookmore like a hotel than a hostel and I loved the breakfast. They are near a place called Los 100 montaditos, is really good and cheap if you don't want to spend too much.
Cons: They didn't have free parking
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The breakfast was very nice!
Cons: We would have liked a room with view. We did not realize this when booking that the room only had a ceiling window. The room had an exterior bathroom, which required a key to open and close from the inside. This was a bit difficult, as the key mechanism was not the easiest and with two children.
7.9 Good
Pros: The hostel is in a quiet place not far from the center of the city and it is easy to visit by walk.. People were nice and breakfast too.
Cons: The room is not well soundproofed and you can hear everything the others are doing around. The floor is noisy too. Parking spots around the hostel are limited and most of them are not free
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The Hotel is beautiful, with spacious family rooms that feature amazing views, high ceilings, minimal but stylish furniture and decorations. Parking, check in and check out were smooth, plenty of info given on arrival by the kind member of staff, the buffet breakfast is well stocked with sweet and savoury, and the home made cake of the day keeps you smiling and going all day! This hotel is a must go!
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The location was great, a bit outside of the center but with a beautiful view and 15min walking distance to most main attractions. The room was light, spacious and clean. Simple but very pleasant.
Cons: The coffee at breakfast was very bad - instant coffee from a machine. Too bad, as breakfast itself was nice,
9.0 Excellent
Pros: + Stylish old house transformed into a hostel/hotel + our room was bright, with lots of windows + the bathroom was very spacious + good breakfast + a bit outside the old town, but still walking distance to all the main sights
Cons: - noise isolation was quite poor, so bring earplugs with you in case you are sensitive, as you will hear all the cars passing by on the street - parking is only available on the street and on weekdays you have to pay for it
7.5 Good
Pros: Lockers, private lamp and socket at every bed. Tasty breakfast included. Nice design of the common space. In general the building is looks great, it’s an old villa.
Cons: - location. I didn’t check it well and it’s quite some walk from the bus station/ city center - They could have put some curtains at each bed to add more privacy (as each bed has a frame so it wouldn’t be much work).

8.5 Excellent
Pros: I loved the staff. They were incredibly helpful and knowledgable about the area. The location is fabulous. A short walk to all the hot spots. I thought the room was clean and nice. It was quiet on our street.
Cons: My one problem with the place was that the walls seemed thin between the rooms. We heard our neighbor watching tv until about 4am. I managed to sleep through most of it but my wife was kept up.
3.1 Mediocre
Pros: Staff was very nice. Food was good but it it hard to find bad portugueses food.
Cons: Garage is terrible, dark, unsafe and lacks ventilation. Had a CO alarm while there and it was scare. Very bad engineering. One needs to manouver on the top of the exit ramp to get out. Location is very bad on a really rundown area of the city. Quite depressing. Rooms had very ugly. Carpet is ugly, dated and filthy. One has tô wheat sandals. Dryer was bad. TV was really bad as far as image quality. Beds and pillows were really bad. All furniture was of bad quality. Internet was ridículos. Scratchy signal and when working (very seldon) was worse than the dial up of the old times. And staff had no idea or solution. Once they suggested me to walk around my room to improve the signal. I ha 2 iPads and 2 two iPhones and some times no one could get a signal. the sad part is that this one is supposed to be the best hotel in Coimbra. I guess I will never visit coimbra again.

Cons: Very small bathroom
9.0 Excellent
Pros: The location of the hotel is excellent and at walking distance to major attractions in the historical center. The staff were helpful and very kind, no objection at all. Decent breakfast. WiFi connection and speed adequate. Airconditioning worked as it should. There are a couple of (cheap) restaurants on the same street right next door.
Cons: Breakfast was decent, but really nothing to write home about (few choices coupled to zero day-to-dayvariety), and they haven't heard of having salt&pepper available anywhere (this actually seemed to be endemic to all Portugal eateries that I have visited, rally strange). The room I was staying in was tiny. As a consequence: barely adequately big bathroom with minuscule sink. No wardrobe, no desk, no chair. therefore if you need to work, you have to do it on the bed! There was only one power outlet in the room beside the two for bed lights. No safe box or refrigerator in the room either. Since I was alone and stayed only for 4 nights it was OK, but for a couple staying in this double-bed room it would be crowded and if you need to do any serious amount of work - look elsewhere.
6.7 Good
Cons: No fridge in the room

Pros: The location was walking distance to the historical sites and there is a bus stop in front which goes to Coimbra University. Cloae to parking areas and restaurants in safe area.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very large rooms, extremely clean and very comfortable, staff was professional and helpful, breakfast had a reasonably large choice, wifi worked well, they have both stairs and elevators. There are at least 2 nice restaurants around and Coimbra-B train station is not far. Price is good given the quality. I will most certainly chose that hotel on my next business trip to Coimbra
Cons: No major issue, it is even hard pointing out minor issues. There was noise down the street at 22h30 once, maybe street cleaners, a bit surprising but room was quiet otherwise. It might not be the most central hotel but then again I have no comparison point.

Pros: Bed was very confortable
Cons: Moquette :(
7.5 Good
Pros: Location is OK, but about 30min away from the old city center on foot. Hotel is comfortable, with a front desk open 24hrs. Large rooms with a nice bathroom. Breakfast buffet has a good mix of items, without being gourmet or particularly high end. Free Wifi is superfast. Friendly staff.
Cons: While being reasonably modern and comfortable, the building is starting to show its age and could use some renovation. There was a 10cm hole in my carpet (looked like a burn hole), a small chip on the wall, and traces of rust in the bathroom. There is no kettle/tea/coffee in the rooms (I was given a kettle when I asked for one, but had to buy my own instant coffee). Free outside parking may not always be available, as it is near a school (I was lucky to get the last spot, ... at 8am). Only 2 small elevators for a relatively large hotel.
