Wish we could have stayed longer.

The photo on the web site is a little deceiving, it makes the hotel appear a little grim, but in reality it is just the lighting. Make sure you add Gloria to the address if you are driving and using a GPS otherwise you will end up in an industrial estate. Although the hotel is located just off the Main Street into town it has double glazing and is very quite. It has three parking spaces in from of the hotel that guests can use for free, otherwise parking on the street is free at the weekends. The breakfast is very very good, more than enough for us. The staff at the hotel are very helpful, especially when it came to advising us about the electronic tolling system and getting a temporary card by going to the post office. We had been using the freeways and then we came onto the lesser roads were suddenly confronted with overhead cameras. Go to the main post office on the way to the station to buy a pass. And make sure to see the old station with all it's tiles. And of course a canal ride is a must, only €8 from any of the wharves. Lots of good shopping and there is an antiques/junk market in the square on Sunday's. Aveiro is a lovely town to visit and if you are driving and need to park your car, then Hotel Das Salinas is perfect.
