Coimbra Hotels: 23 reviews and 18 photos

  República dos Galifões
by rp6686

If you're going to Coimbra on Erasmus program or something related the best (and cheapest) option you have are Repúblicas.

Normally they only accept new people after they have dinner a couple of times in the República. And the decision is only made after a meeting of the older students.

Repúblicas are buildings that were given by the king D. Dinis to the students in the year of 1309.
About 150 Euros (per month)... more or less (meals included).

Unique Qualities: It's the cheapest.
It's great to meet new people.
Meals are served there and are included on the price.
Lot's of parties...

Normally they only accept people for a reasonable period of time (6 months or more, for example).

There are several all over Coimbra. You can see a list with contact information here. The only one I've ever been to is República dos Galifões.

Price Comparison: least expensive
Theme: Other

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
