About Casa Pombal

Casa Pombal is a small bed & breakfast on the top of a hill in the historical heart of Coimbra. This old townhouse is utterly unpretencious and will stir feelings of nostalgia for those student years.

Open

Casa Pombal is open all year around.

Rooms

The rooms are basic, decorated in ‘brocante style’ and each with its own portuguese atmosphere. Most rooms have private bathrooms, some have a beautiful view over the city and the river Mondego.

Breakfast

Included in the price is a ‘dutch style’ breakfast served in the common room, decorated with fine tiles. Guests can also meet on the small vine-covered patio or enjoy the view from the ‘Miradouro’.

Service

Due to the limited number of rooms, personal care is guarenteed. The dutch manager and her staff are very willing to give lots of local information. For our guests we have free internetfacilities.
IMPORTANT
Please note that Casa Pombal is a 100-year-old townhouse in the historical centre; it is not easily accessible for less mobile guests (small stairs, 3 floors and no lift) and the streets around are all cobbled stones.

The name

Pombal is the name of a city and also of a famous person, Marques de Pombal. (www.wikipedia.com)

‘Pombal’ is portuguese for dove-cot, a hospitable residence where travellers are heartly welcomed.
