Studio at Coimbra Historical Center

Apartment - Entire home/apt · R. Fernandes Tomás, Coimbra, Coimbra 3000, Portugal

The Space

Since 22 of Juin 2013 Coimbra University and the historical center of the town, where this studio is located, are UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE and we are very proud of that.

Apartment/Studio "T0" in a XVI Century building reconstructed. A few minutes walking from the trainstation "Coimbra A" and from the principal points of interest of the City. Museums, University, Monuments, Stores, Fado Houses, Restaurants, Bars, Green Park, Boat trips, tuk tuk, other public transports, as you can confirm in the guide, in this annoncement.

This building was built on the medieval wall of Roman and Arabic origin but with substantial changes since the twelfth century by order of the first King of Portugal, D. Afonso Henriques - when Coimbra was the capital of the kingdoom - and is preserved and visible on the west facade. In archaeological excavations carried out before the recent works, were found traces of Roman population and Iron Age II that constitute the oldest traces of population ever found in Coimbra.

This is why a building full of history, carefully reconstructed preserving and enhancing heritage but endowed with every comfort and architectural solutions in accordance with the requirements of today.

In addition, it´s easy to park the car - for free - right in front of the apartment!!!

Have a unique experience of living and feeling deeply the City.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Joao was an excellent host. He gave us lots of information on local museums, and good restaurants. We nearly felt like locals, several people in the street spoke to us. And Joao explained and showed the history of his house, of which he is very proud,with reason. Everything was within walking distance. We warmly recommend Joao's studio.

  • João is a wonderful host! He provided TONS of excellent suggestions about Coimbra - he knows and loves the city. Communication was always great - prompt and helpful. The apartment was perfect - wonderfully located, clean, and well appointed. I agree with all of the other great, positive reviews on this apartment!

  • Even if I was just for 2 days in Coimbra, Joao was probably the best host on my journey through Portugal. He gave me a lot and excellent information of what is worth to visit in that period of time and i had 2 very good days in Coimbra although it was raining. The apartment was very clean, spacious and well located, to me better then the pictures you see.
    Really to recommend this host and apartment. Thanks for everything.

  • Excellent apartment, excellent location, excellent host. Upon introduction, João took me through a virtual tour of the town, recommending the finest restaurants and the best sights. The flat itself was perfect: spacious, clean and modern. Though I didn't cook, the Kitchen appeared to have everything that you could need. The location is ideal: 5 minutes away to the historic university and close to the best restaurants in Coimbra. Throughout my stay, João was more than helpful and tended to all the queries that I had about the city.

    5 stars. Highly recommended.

  • Joao was a fantastic host. He really made our stay enjoyable. He gave us lots of great tips on what to see. So many in fact we wished we could have stayed for a few more days to see them all. Driving to the house was a bit tricky but totally worth the adventure. I'd recommend Joao's apartment 100%

  • We had a terrific three night stay in João's Coimbra apt. The apartment is as clean and inviting in reality as represented on the web. João informs and invites his guests into the truly significant history of this marvelous university town in Portugal. His tips on dining and other touristic sights are an added bonus.

  • We had a great experience in João's studio apartment in the heart of old town Coimbra. Our host gave us a thorough orientation to the city with great suggestions for things to do and places to eat. He is very knowledgeable about his city, especially in terms of the architecture. The studio is ideally located and João keeps it in impeccable condition. We highly recommend a stay in this apartment in Coimbra.

  • It was a pleasure to stay in that lovely apartment in historical center of Coimbra.
    Joao was very helpful and he gave us many interesting tips - unfortunately all recomended restaurants were full of guests but that means that they are really worth to see :-)
    So we went to the bar which is seen from the window of the flat: Hylario - great crazy people and incradible atmosphere.
    We'd like to go back there in the future :-)

  • We enjoyed the three days in Coimbra. The flat was great, a lot of interesting points and restaurants in walking distance, although we didn't met Joao, he gave us a lot of tipps. If you come by car it would be a good idea to go directly to the big and gratis parking place on the other side of the river. Uschi

Nasci e vivo em Coimbra. Estudei Direito e sou um pequeno empresário que tem ajudado a recuperar e dar vida ao Centro Histórico da Cidade. Tenho interesse por história, arqueologia, arquitetura, política e desporto. Iniciei esta atividade de receber visitantes no estudio em Maio de 2012 e está a dar-me muito gosto. Tem sido um prazer receber e conhecer visitantes de todo o mundo que vêm conhecer Coimbra, bem como ajudar a que conheçam melhor a história, as lendas e os melhores locais para visitar.
