Lovely hotel in perfect location
Posted Sep 29, 2016
We booked this hotel because we were spending the last few days of our holiday in the Porto region in Aveiro. We could not have picked a better hotel. The room was comfortable and spacious, the reception staff were friendly, knowledgeable and had excellent English, and the breakfasts delicious.We had a lovely room overlooking the square and the canal - we would recommend asking for a room at the front. Although the street outside and the square were buzzing through the day - the square was the meeting place for the elderly townspeople in the early evening - everything quietened down later in the evening and our room, although on the first floor, was peaceful and quiet at night. Aveiro itself is very easy to reach by train - it's on the main line between Porto and Lisbon and local and express trains stop there. The town itself is charming to stroll around and a trip on the canal on a moliceiro is a must! There are interesting short trips that can be made using the local buses - to Costa Nova on the Atlantic coast and to the beautiful Maritime Museum at Ilhavo, for example.
