    The river view upgrade was a nice free amenity. After just staying at Vila Galé, Evore with breakfast and parking included it was shocking to realize both amenities were not at their sister hotel.

    Terrible condition, but great breakfast!

    Maybe I'm spoiled, but I thought hotels cleaned the room when you stayed there. When I came back to my room on the second day...no one had been in the room at all. No cleaning. No bed made. No clean towels. So I'm picky. I also expected things like a chair for the desk. Surprise. Now, the bathroom window that wouldn't shut all the way, causing very loud wind noise to come in during the rainstorm... maybe that wasn't all me. Thank you, however, to the manager that brought up a roll of packing tape at 1pm to tape the window shut. No, really... Awesome breakfast, however, and a nice little workout area.

    Poor lighting and lacking effective temperature control, it was too cool and almost cold! The rooms were clean but plain, the bathroom shower was inconvenient. Above all, avoid the dining room! While the service was adequate, the food was wretched and had to be sent back because it was inedible, also poor quality and over priced. One got the impression they wanted to discourage use of dining facilities . . . and succeeded! Service at the cocktail lounge was missing entirely until one complained to the front desk. At best, mediocre and pricey.

    t hotel, staff not sensitive

    The ONLY issue was the young people at front desk suggested a walk to tram was 10 minute walk. Two in our party were 85 years old and could not make it in 30 minutes....... they were not sensitive to guests needs... gave directions like we had been there before and would recognize points along the way.

    Lovely pool and breakfast options. Would be better if the room service is faster as even getting a coffee seems to take over 40 mins.

    Great place to unwind after traveling around Portugal. Love the pool, spa, and jacuzzi. Easy walk to old town, restaurants and the university. Very close to bus station too. We also had a wonderful buffet breakfast. The staff is very accommodating with great information, directions and even invited us to use the facilities for the rest of the day after checking out. Coimbra is a must see city in Portugal.

    The hotel is quite old and dated. It needs an overhaul. The breakfast buffet was excellent.
