This hotel takes only cash payment, which they do not tell you when you book. There was not hot water for the showers and when we complained as none of our party of 5 could shower they offered no compensation. The tv in one of the rooms was only showing Snow! And once again when we complained no offer of... More

If all you expect is a bed and bathroom with no frills, this is the place for you. The room was small and we could hardly move around. It was very clean, but dated -- could definitely use a good renovation. The owner was very helpful, but speaks no English.

This is an extremely basic, yet clean abode. Our room was very small. It looks as if they are busy/have renovated the place. Tape was used to attach electric cords to the wall (is that in accord to Portuguese safety regulations?). Don’t even try to use the smallest of small TVs. Terrible picture quality. Small bar of soap was provided.... More

Lovely family run business, quiet and clean, free wifi and parking! Clean and well kept, great location. The owners are caring and really try to create an experience, further improvements are happening and a skybar has been promised! Will come back!

The room certainly is beyond the expectation, good quality hardware in toilette, dark wood furniture and snow white bed linings with a nice balcony.

We stayed here for 1 night while exploring Portugal's country side and I wish we stayed somewhere else... I would say that this is rather a 1 star hostel (it occupies one floor on the 3rd level in the old shopping center). While its location is central, it is impossible to find it without help (even GPS won't help much)... More

Very nice hotel in the centre of Coimbra. Few minutes walk from main attractions. Room was clean and quiet. The staff was really kind and also helped us to find parking for our car. Good value for money. I would definitely go back.

The previous reviews are now well out of date for this clean, friendly and well-located budget pensao. If budget is not an issue for you then you might want to look elsewhere as this is not five star.The rooms are still not ensuite ( though they do have sinks and bidets). But I found no issues at all with cleanliness... More

I agree with the previous post. This hostel is far from Modern. The eight flights of stairs are only the beginning of our adventure at Pensao Moderna. Our room was quite clean, with a sink and a bidet, however, the bidet had a yellow-brown liquid coming up the drain (I´m not sure what it was, nor do I want to... More
