The Hotel Astoria Coimbra is a three-star residence located in arguably one of the best positions in Coimbra. Perched on the banks of the River Mondego and just metres away from the Largo da Portagem and Santa Clara Bridge, it provides easy access to the city’s many historic attractions while being close to the pedestrianised central area and just a three-minute walk from the Estaçao Nova railway station.
The hotel building is a superb example of period architecture found in Portugal around the turn of the century and through the art deco period. It has been well cared for and undergone significant restoration in order to be transformed into an attractive hotel with sufficient amenities to please the discerning traveller. Many of the original art deco features remain intact and much of the furniture dates back to this period too.
While modern day city-centre hotels can have a habit of packing in as many rooms as possible, and sometimes compromising on room size as a result, the Hotel Astoria Coimbra offers generously-sized accommodation at a refreshingly affordable price.
Rooms are furnished with one double or twin beds and come complete with private en-suite bathroom with complimentary toiletries, bathtub and showerhead. Blackout curtains ensure a good night’s sleep, without disturbing the feeling of opulence offered by the oversized windows that offer attractive views over the Coimbra cityscape below.
All rooms feature complimentary Wi-Fi and 15-inch TV with satellite programming. There is a dry cleaning and laundry service, 24-hour manned front desk, concierge desk, air conditioning throughout and a number of services to suit the business traveller or those with a need to access the internet, phone or fax during their stay.
Banqueting services are available in the meeting rooms and a buffet breakfast is served daily in the hotel bar and breakfast room.
It is this same central positioning that makes it a popular choice for visitors wanting to stay in the very core of the action and sample everything that the historic city of Coimbra, Portugal, has to offer.
