This is a guesthouse very well located in the city, just one leg from central train station and a short distance from bus station. The staff is very kind and honest.
I stayed in a single room with private bathroom and TV.
The residencial international is a simple place next to the train station in Coimbra where you can have a bed for the night for around 20 euros.
I was quite happy with my bed and the bathroom aswell as the reception staff.
I was not so happy with my door though as it was very easy to open without a key and that meant i carried my laptop and my camera all over the place during my stay there which was a bit annoying.
But if they could fix the doors so they lock better then i would be very happy to return.
Near the center of town and right next to the train station.
This Residencial is older than the city itself I think :-)! It's furnished in a really old fashioned way, breakfast is quite poor, but it's right in the middle of the city which makes it good for visit the city on foot.
My friend and I stayed here a couple of nights on our trip around Portugal. We had a little room with a bunk bed. We could have had a larger room with proper beds, private bathroom and a nice view, but it was more expensive. The toilets and bathrooms were clean and located in the hallway. Breakfast was not served.
The host of this place was a nice woman. She and her family also lived in this building and her son sometimes played in the hallway. We felt welcome and we had a nice stay here.
Prices: 25,00€ / 30,00€ for a double (year 2006-prices). After looking at the website it seems like the pension have improved since we stayed here, they mention TV in the rooms, we didn't have that.
It's called the "bakery house" cause it was once a bakery. At the dining room, you can still see the old oven. It's a nice house, cosy and rural atmosphere .
But the best thing is defenetly the breakfast!... :)) you wake up in the morning, go to the dining room and you have fresh baked bread, home-made jam and cheese... Delicious!... I found a but funny that it's only one big table, and everyone just seat there and eat, like you where in some family house.
If you're going to Coimbra on Erasmus program or something related the best (and cheapest) option you have are Repúblicas.
Normally they only accept new people after they have dinner a couple of times in the República. And the decision is only made after a meeting of the older students.
Repúblicas are buildings that were given by the king D. Dinis to the students in the year of 1309.
About 150 Euros (per month)... more or less (meals included).
It's the cheapest.
It's great to meet new people.
Meals are served there and are included on the price.
Lot's of parties...
Normally they only accept people for a reasonable period of time (6 months or more, for example).
There are several all over Coimbra. You can see a list with contact information here. The only one I've ever been to is República dos Galifões.
