The hosts, Cecilia and Ricardo, did an excellent job. The offered to pick us up from the railway station, and dropped us off again. The apartment is on a nice walking distance from the university (25 minutes walk) and suits academic visitors. It is quiet and clean!
Staying with Cecilia & Ricardo was a pleasure for me and my parents. An apartment is spacious and nice designed, we were very impressed. I strongly recommend choosing C&R as your host - they solved any problem we had quickly and successfully.
Thank you for perfect hosting!
We had a wonderful time in Coimbra and our apartment from Cecilia and Ricardo proved to be an excellent base of operations. Their listing was accurate, the apartment was surprisingly spacious and well suited to our needs. The large grocery store and shopping mall that were a short walk from the apartment was very useful.
Cecilia & Ricardo were really good hosts. They met us at the apartment, helped us to familiarize ourselves with the apartment and were ready to answer any questions we had (their English is solid). They both made us feel welcome with maps of the area, menus for local restaurants, and insights into what to do.
They were very organized, with manuals and instructions for all the appliances in the apartment, which we thought was a thoughtful touch.
If we found ourselves in Coimbra again we would definitely consider re-booking.
I’ve rented three times from AirBnb hosts this year, in Berlin, New York, and most recently in Coimbra. I need no assistance in functioning easily in any of the three cities, but Cecilia and Ricardo went out of their way for me and for this I am extremely grateful. I arrived at 5.20 am on a Sunday morning and knowing my way around Coimbra I was fully prepared to have coffee and something to eat at the local bus terminal café until a reasonable hour. My hosts wouldn’t have it and came to pick me up at 6 am and take me ‘home’. I left the following Saturday on a late afternoon train and they graciously allowed me to leave when I needed and just leave the key in the mailbox.
I usually teach a week or two each year at the university and need to prepare my classes. The apartment is in a quiet section of town, with numerous cafes and restaurants and good bus connections to the university It is equipped with wi-fi, a big desk as well as a large dining room table, which facilitates working. There is also plenty of light, which isn’t always the case in hotel rooms, which often also lack space. The kitchen comes equipped with a dishwasher, washing machine, refrigerator-freezer, range, microwave and coffeemaker. It’s great to know they’re all there (especially for a longer stay!), but they were lost on me since why cook when eating and drinking in Portugal is fantastic. The separate bedroom and bath left nothing to be desired.
I strongly recommend staying with Cecilia and Ricardo for anyone just visiting Coimbra and the surrounding area, and particularly for those working at the university on a visiting basis. This was clearly the best AirBnb stay I’ve had!
This is a very nice, modern and well equipped flat. Clean and comfortable. "Design apartment" is a good description. Good wifi and other conveniences such as a washing machine, TV, and a very good standard of furnishings and kitchen equipment. Not in the heart of Coimbra but close enough to walk to a square, and on a bus route to the centre. Good takeaway underneath if in need. Cecilia was very welcoming and informative and particularly kind when I had to cut short my stay unexpectedly. I appreciated her warmth.
Both Ricardo and Cecelia welcomed us at the door and gave us excellent information for enjoying our short stay in their delightful city of Coimbra. The apartment is gorgeous, well equipped, modern and very home-like to stay in. It would also be very comfortable for a longer stay. The location is great, just a nice short walk across the bridge to the heart of the tourist area. The views of the University and old Town are best from this side of the river. And parking for a car is available! We would highly recommend these hosts and their beautiful apartment.
Clean and well equipped apartment.
Our host, Cecilia, was great. She responded quickly to emails prior to staying there and was also able to provide us a ride a ride from the train station when we arrived. The place was very nice and had plenty of room for the two of us staying there. Despite, being on the other side of the river it was an easy walk to downtown and not inconvenient at all. Would definitely stay there again if I ever go back to Coimbra.
Cecilia and Ricardo met us at the apartment to make certain all our questions were answered and all our needs met. They had excellent suggestions for activities and restaurants in Coimbra. They drove to a wonderful restaurant called Praxis with us following. They kindly spoke to the owner so that my husband could watch his much loved Formula One while eating delicious food. He says, it can't get any better than this. The apartment is exactly as shown in the photos. All new and modern and spotlessly clean. Ideally located with just a ten minute walk across the bridge to the old town. Our only regret was that we didn't have longer to stay. We would definitely stay there again and would happily recommend it to others.
Bien que l appartement soit a l extérieur du centre-
ville il est facile de s y rendre , seulement à 10 mins à pied. L'appartement est grand mais situé dans un endroit passant c est un peu bruyant et le wi-fi ne fonctionnait pas toujours bien. La cuisine est bien équipée pour cuisiner et notre hôte nous a donné bcp d infos sur les attraits a proximité .
No es la primera vez que se aloja Cecilia en nuestra casa. Y que podemos decir de ella que es una chica encantadora y puntual. Nos ha encantado poder volver a tenerla con nosotros una vez mas. Dejó el apartamento arreglado y como si no hubiera pasado nadie.
Un placer poder alojar gente como ella.
la convivencia con cecilia ha sido perfecta, es una persona encantadora.
mec dio algunos consejos sobre la habitacon, que agradeci mucho, y pienso llevar a termino.
gracias por todo.
