Right in the heart of downtown Coimbra, facing the serene Mondego River, this Grand Belle Époque hotel has been welcoming guests since 1926 and is one of the city’s main architectural gems. The location is just perfect and unbeatable to explore Coimbra at its own rhythm – adjacent to the traditional shopping streets and just steps away from the old University and Joanine Library, both World Heritage sites, from the 12th century Santa Cruz Cathedral and monumental medieval quarter.
The original inner atmosphere and intact design of this pure heritage hotel, displaying a fine marble lobby, a gracious living room, a grand paneled spectacular breakfast room, and gloriously 1920’s styled rooms with exquisite antique furniture, makes it definitely not a place for someone who loves all the modern conveniences the world has to offer these days, but if you appreciate old world things and enjoy taking a trip in a time warp… you will adore this hotel and fall in love with Coimbra.
