We visited Coimbra just before Christmas when the temperature outside was +9 centigrade, yet inside our room seemed to be colder than outside. It has a perfect location, in the very centre of Coimbra, just opposite the cathedral in an old building. It was relatively cheap, 32€ per night for 2 people, including breakfast in a nearby cafe. It would...

Pensao has excellent location! It's an old building and we were on the fifth floor without elevator, but the view is amazing so it's worth it. I didnt Like the fact that there is only one shower and one toilet on the entire floor. Owner is helpful and really nice. Very good :)

First I made a mistake booking a pension at the wrong date. The receptionist recommended Santa Cruz as an alternative (because he probably owns it too). We only paid €28 for a night for two persons. The pension is located nice at a square center across the Santa Cruz chapel, which gives the place a 'romantic vibe'. The receptionist was...

Great location on third floor overlooking a central cathedral square. Definitely a budget choice, but clean, safe and quiet. A little dusty and furnishings definitely from the last century, if not older, but all that we wanted in a hotel and more.

I booked this pensao and ended up not staying there and not being able to get a refund. The location is very difficult to find and I was warned by a police officer to be very careful--criminals, drug dealers and other "doings" happen here. This pensao is located directly across from city hall in a square and offers no parking....

The only good thing about this hotel was it's location - it is located directly across from the Santa Cruz Monastery. The square often has performances, merchant stalls, and live music which can be heard from the rooms. Other than that it was old, not very clean, and extremely noisy. There was also no a/c in the room. I would...

This pension is in a very central location and for 20 euro you cannot get cheaper. However the condition is very poor, the bathroom has not warm water and the beds are very small. If you can get a room not facing the square, you will have quite nights. The landlord is a very nice person who can explain a...

The pensao is a very old crooked building which in other hands would make it a lovely advantage, but this pension is just too old without any refurbishments. We've got the room with a private bathroom, so we didn't have any of the terrible experiences of the common bathroom shared here. However the tiny window going out on the back...

The location is perfect near the main street, has a beautiful view of Santa Cruz Monastery and scuare. The pension was very old, the bed is too hard, our private room was connected to the common bathroom for this reason we heard and smell everything that happened on there... The shower water came out without force,hot water took 10 minutes....
