About this listing
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.

João's apartment is perfectly located in the heart of the old town! It was clean and cozy. João was an exzellent host who explained a lot to us about Coimbra and gave us great tips!
We definitly recommend staying here!
Studio Très bien situé à deux pas du centre ville; état impeccable .
Très bon accueil de Joao qui a pris tt le temps nécessaire pour présenter sa ville
We had a great stay in Joao's great apartment. The location is perfect, so close to all the sights and restaurants etc. that you can walk everywhere from here. The apartment is clean and comfortable and very stylish. The photos do not do it justice.
Joao is a fantastic host. He spent lots of time giving us information about his city and his fantastic knowledge and stories really help to bring the place alive. He also gave great recommendations for restaurants and bars and music.
This has truly been one of our best Airbnb stays. Thanks Joao !
João was the perfect host, took time to explain everything and give advice on what to see with limited time available. The apartment is beautiful, clean and spacious and centrally located. We can only recommend it!
Joao welcomed us in his flat, explained everything and gave us an enthusiastic description of Coimbra, its history and its people, its best restaurants and must-see attractions. The flat is simple but nice, and very centrally located.
We really enjoyed our time in Coimbra thanks to João and his beautiful appartment in the old centre of Coimbra. João gave us lots of tips where to eat etc.. We can really recommand this appartment.
Great host ! Joao (excuse my lack of portuguese accents) took a long time to welcome us, my man and I, and introduce his dear city, the different museums, events and spots. We were there during Festas da Cidade : we had plenty of choices.
The flat was as described and perfectly located, just in the middle of the old city. Recommended !
And for those who are afraid of the noise, because of the restaurants in the streets : I consider myself to be sensisitive, not to mention my partner, and we both were'nt bother.
Thanks Joao !

About the Host, João
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 prazer. Tem sido muito agradável 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.
