Vila Gale Coimbra Hotel
Really nice hotel near the center.
Hotel Vila Gale in Coimbra is a top modern 4 star hotel located 10 minutes walk from the old city center of Coimbra.
The place is new and sparkelling clean and very pleasant if you like a new international style hotel.
My room was nice and functional and I really liked the outdoor area where they had a nice pool with a lively pool bar.
Inside the hotel also had some nice common areas and the staff was accomodating.
The hotel is located in a quiet side street but still very close to the action of the city.
I was very happy to stay there and will be happy to return again.
Directions: 10 minutes walk from the main square in the old city center of Coimbra.
Vila Galé is a Portuguese chain operating both in Portugal and Brazil. They inaugurated their hotel in Coimbra in April 2010. The hotel, being so recent, is spotless and everything looks very good and new. The decoration is modern and spacious.
Our room had nice view to River Mondego; whilst in the morning we could see the shells, skiffs and sculls go by, at night we could enjoy the reflections of the illuminated bridge and margins.
The hotel has a swimming pool, but we didn't use it since we stayed in this hotel in January! Nevertheless, they also have a Spa, and for a fee, hotel guests' may enjoy the interior pool, which was what we did.
The restaurant is good. Service is good and breakfast is delicious. Buffet breakfast is varied (for Portuguese standards) and food is of good quality. We didn't have dinner in this hotel, but have done so in other Vila Galé hotels and I would recommend their restaurants.
In the lobby there is a billiard’s table; if you intend to use it just ask at the reception.
This hotel isn't situated in city centre, but we were travelling by car, so that wasn't a problem. Concerning car parking, the hotel has an underground parking (paid) and also a few parking spaces just in front of the hotel (about 6, free of charge). We were lucky enough and always managed to find a parking space in front of the hotel, so we didn't spend any money parking the car overnight.
