Excelleny hospitality, good facilities, stylish, excellent views, great breakfast, excellent value for money
The young couple that run the place really made us all feel very welcome. Their eye for detail and care taken to explain the "lay of the land" was very good. They went out of their way to assist one of our members that did not attend the business meetings to ensure that she was driven to areas of interest. A really good feel. We will all go back there should the opportunity arise. The hotel owner should really consider in allowing guests to pay with major international recognised credit cards. It is not reasonable to expect people to carry large sums of cash to pay for accommodation.
Elegant hotel which appears to have undergone some upgrading recently. Great location and easy to find. Staff delightful. n/a
It is a charming hotel in a perfect location. The recent renovations were tastefully done, and my husband and I liked the accommodations very much. Parking is somewhat complicated since it has to be in the street.
Top location in all of Aveiro. VERY professional and courteous staff. João was exceptional.
Hotel in excellent location and very good value for money.
beautifully renovated hotel with a high quality look .... given the price and thecentral location right at the main canal (yet quiet) ... this hotel had to be the best value on my trip. The staff was friendly and most helpful. Breakfast was nice, and the hotel has several lovely lounge and sitting areas to make use of. Delightful. no
Clean and comfy room, staff welcome with a smile, excellent views from the room. the parking facility as stated in website is for limited spaces, i think on first come first served basis. Also parking is some 200 meters away maybe problem with people with physical difficulties or travelling with small kids.
Wonderful location overlooking the canal, restaurants in easy walking distance and reasonably priced. Boat trip a 'must'. Helpful and informative staff. No parking and difficulty in finding any in surrounding streets. Situated on a busy roundabout so could be a problem unloading and loading car.
It was in a good central position The furniture and decor were rather outdated
The Hotel is as central as you will get, surrounded by cafes, shopping, and also tradition. The first night of our stay was a national holiday, and there was a lot of celebrating well into the small hours of the morning. Although there is double glazing in the hotel, we were still able to hear the noise.
Nice rooms - close to railway station
Had no meals at hotel so cannot comment-price did not include breakfast . Room/ bathroom was well equipped,quiet, very comfortable and clean.Mini frig was very useful. Bathroom door needing adjusting in order to fully close.No place to hang coats or clothes except in cupboards.
A comfortable hotel with a large room in a quiet location. Staff helpful and recommended excellent restaurants in town. Location a bit out of town with a good 15 minute walk.
Excellent location to visit Aveiro. Good hotel, total comfort, nice decor and beds very comfortable. Quiet location and good breakfast. Wish we could have stayed more than one night. Nice little terrace for a drink in the afternoon. We liked everything about this hotel.
Very comfortable and clean with excellent facilities and bathroom. Requests were undertaken with promptness and intent. Free internet in lobby was great. Location right next to train station, close to eating + shopping. Historic centre a 10 minute walk.
Comfortable room and excellent parking available. Limited information in room on locality and lack of tea/coffee making facilities in room.
Very good location and very clean am comfortable room (with a good view, if it faces the lake). Overall, it is an extremely nice hotel with very good value-for-money. Front desk staff was not very helpful when I asked to change from a twin bedroom to a double bedroom. I had to stay in the twin room because, allegedly, there were no more double rooms available.
modern, new, luxurious hotel a 10 minute stroll along the canal into the town. Rooms were very spacious & comfortable. Free internet access available in the Business Center which was very useful for guests. rooms were not well soundproofed so could hear conversations from guests in the next room
Good presentation,everything clean,excelent breakfast whater not very warm in the 1st night
This new hotel is located on a new street and does not show up properly in Mapquest or Google maps. Not a complaint, just a warning. Call and get directions.
Nice location, 500 m from the wonderful city of Aveiro. Beautiful views from the restaurant. Free parking in front of the hotel. You cannot enter the swimming pool without paying for the SPA (there is a charge of 9.00€/day!!) Even if you stay one night, and you want to swim in the afternoon and again in the morning, they charge 2x the fee!! A very big disadvantage not worthy for this kind of hotel.
see my score... When I checked out I discovered that My booking.com contract was not in line with the price of the hotel. Nevertheless, without any trouble it was corrected by the lady at the reception desk.
Excellent location, great staff, very helpfull. Rooms excellent quality
The food and spa The location
Spacious room; very well located very expansive breakfast; no internet included
Breakfast was good, except the orange juice. Improve the price-quality relation.
The indoor swimming pool and gym are good for a small hotel. There is also an outdoor pool. Dinner needs to be reserved as it seems a lot of non guests dine there, attracted by the good food. Breakfast is adequate. The location is not attractive, situated along a suburban street. It seems that the hotel is being extended as construction work is in progress. The entrance to the underground car park is narrow but there is some parking in front and at the side of the hotel.
Although we only stayed for one night at Hotel de Ilhavo on our way to the north of Portugal we were in for a pleasant surprise. The hotel is relatively new with big and comfortable rooms, staff is really nice and efficient and we even had the chance to use the indoor pool&whirlpool (open until 10pm, pleasantly warm pool temperature) in the evening. Rooms were clean and the breakfast buffet really great with a lot of choices available. The hotel was relatively hard to find as there are a lot of confusing signs regarding the centre of Ilhavo and the hotel itself doesn't have any signs posted. We even got lost on our way back from Aveiro to Ilhavo.
The staff very pleasant and the rooms very space and very clean
Good facilities; Good breakfast; Restaurant
The Buffett was excellent value, as was the breakfast. The outdoor swimming pool facilities were excellent. Lack of barstaff, sometimes there was no-one around the bar area at all.
Pretty hotel with friendly employees. Very nice pool & fitness room. Good &free parking spaces. Cheap Internet access Rooms with relatively thin walls. Not very good located
The room, breakfast and the very friendly and helpful staff, also the location
It's a good looking hotel and very well placed. The view from the room is very nice. We can see the canals of Aveiro and there are lots of restaurants nearby. The hotel is located nearby the bars. At night there is too much noise. The breakfast is very poor for a 4 star hotel.
Excellent location, very helpful friendly staff, beautifully decorated rooms. If you are in Alveiro, this should definitely be the place to stay.
Felt like a 5 star, but the staff were very nice and down-to-earth. Double beds are 2 singles pushed together.
It is charming and run by charming staff. It's a tonic for anyone tired of large chains and standard products. Everything was very comfortable and relaxing. Only the breakfast was slightly less impressive than a 5-star hotel would offer - but it was still perfectly acceptable and we would happily stay there again and have the breakfasts!
Very nice hotel for couples. I tried de Lovers Pack and it was great. Very relaxing enverinonment and excellent location.
We liked the design of the room and hotel, it was very stylish. The front desk ladies were very nice and always helpful, perfect service. The special gift(wine with cheese and fruits) was very kind from the hotel staff.
very warm welcome and tourist guidance for the town, help find parking
nice clean comfortable room. pleasant staff needed tea/coffee making facilities in room
Beautiful hotel. Lot's of refined details. Even the art work in the room was thoughtfully chosen. It is beyond the hotel's control but, when the wind comes from the north, one is very aware of the paper mill many miles from the otherwise wonderful city of Aveiro.
We arrived early, but were allowed to check in immmediately, it was early season.The receptionist offered us a parking spot outside the hotel. All the staff were extremely polite and helpful and attentive, all spoke good english and were very professional. The decor,comfort and service at this hotel is first class. The breakfast buffet was excellent.
The hotel was quiet and very centrally located. It is easy to find, since it has a big illuminated sign on top. The breakfast buffet was quite fine. Especially the fresh fruit was a nice touch. The free internet did not work for me or any of my colleagues. Neither did the free wireless internet in the lobby. The hotel seems a bit old and used.
convenient for the city and the other facilities very low speed of the internet and its connection system. it was practically useless
The location at town. Close to main facilities and shoping area. Nothing at all
Nice room Room
Good location, next to the pedestrian street. Perfect to see the city center. Good breakfast, free internet acess. Big Supermarket nearby. No parking place near the hotel reserved for clients.
The quality and value-for-money of the food/meals was excellent, and better than in most other hotels I have stayed in.
great location and price
The buffet breakfast was excellent and i like they way the conserve energy the hotel was convenience to shopping and site
comfortable and clean room; huge breakfast selection the hotel should need to be renovated, especially the bathrooms
It was close to city centre ... Breakfast was not good, Couldn't find any accessible sockets to charge mobile, laptop etc, no free WLAN
Room was large, clean and comfortable.
easy acess to town Aveiro and space to park your car . nope the hotel it is perfect!!!
Nice breakfast Fast internet in some rooms
The Reception staff were very helpful, the hotel was warm and the room very clean. The breakfast was a disappointment and the staff seemed slightly annoyed if you arrived for breakfast after 9.00 and anyone arriving after 9.30 were faced with little choice. It was a shame that the fruit bowl was so unappetising, the coffee only warm and the orange juice what we would term as orange squash.
The staff was excellent. Minor electric malfunctions. Could no turnTV on by remote control.
A very nice big and clean room with air conditionning. Fantastic continental breakfast. Good price. Would recommend to anyone who wants to stay in Aveiro. You have to pay for using wireless internet but i couldnt even use it on my laptop. However they let me use their computer.
The room was very clean and comfortable. Also the bathroom was very clean, Breakfast was excellent.
Silence around, near center, good breakfast. Bath towel with a stain, some hair and some beach sand in the room.
Good value hotel in walking distance of centre.
friendly, good value for money no wifi available in the room
Parking is for free. Old fashion hotel.Lights at the room are sensibly poor, but.... tropical climate, not to say Sahara climate is for sure in the room, no way to cool down.
IT is a nice hotel with good rooms and kind staff
Friendliness of staff and cleanliness of room.
food was good car park too small
Excellent rooms and very friendly staff. I travel a lot and this is probably the best hotel in Europe that I have stayed in.
Very nice food in the Grill restaurant, Grill chef speak perfect English.
service and the room The indoor pool wasn't finished
hot water turned down between 10 a.m. and 10 p.m.
our stay was a comfortable one. The breakfast was limited and the bacon and egg was always cold. If you came down for breakfast after 8.00am it is not guranteed that you will get bacon and eggs. Often this is requested but slow to arrive. Communication was also a barrier as most of the kitchen staff did not speak English and the guest had great difficulties expressing their neds.
Nice room and bathroom - Helpful staff - Exelent restaurant - NO
The hotel is very new, very clean and the rooms are comfortable and well designed. i would stay again. No.
Hotel room was very good value for money. Dinner in the restaurant wasn't of the same standard unfortunately.
Courteous staff, well designed room, well serviced Breakfast spread quite good but hot food option limited
Great hotel, new and clean, decent breakfast, free wi-fi, about 10km from the Europarque.
only location two persons, but two price of hotel, very bad, because customs organization is the same.
Nice staff. Nice hotel. Nice decoration. Good cleanliness of room. Very confortable. Free Wifi connection. Free parking for car. Great location. Breakfast could be a little better.
Friendly, helpful staff
The only nice thing about this hotel was the view from the bar on the top floor.
Right in the centre of the town, easy walking to restaurants The parking garage was a little difficult to find
The room in general
beauty of the landscape,quitness of the place and good gastronomics quality and service.
Room was big, clean, with outstanding view of nature. Very relaxing place. This hotel has not his own restaurant.
The simpaty of the staff
room, the view, pool no wifi (wireless)
great service and landscape, delicious breakfast, peacefulness. mini TV does not fit to otherwise very nice room.
We found everything about this hotel wonderful, from the beautifully restored installations to the outstanding food and the friendly staff that really makes guests feel welcome. Excellent value for money and highly recommended.
Our stay in the hotel was wonderful .....lovely room .... fabulous breakfast buffet ..... gorgeous relaxing pool. We will return for a longer stay.
Friendly personel, nice rooms, good food (menu of the day for 15€ =good and more than you can eat) and amazingly great choice of portuguese wine and Porto. Oudoor swimming pool is nice and refreshing (not cold). The hotel is difficult to find (even with GPS) but it is worth the efford. Free WiFi works OK. As frequent traveler, I think that this is the first time I have nothing to criticize about a hotel.
Quietness in rom and general area
Very nice facilities - e.g. gym.
restful and peaceful nothing
The staff was very helpful, efficient and friendly. The room was comfortable and very nice.
use of sauna steamroom and jaccuzi.Indoor pool nice and warm. Good breakfast.Dinner fair.Highly recommend Calabria in the town No sun beds provided for sunbathing,even though weather was warm and sunny for October
the room, the tranquility the view from the room the hoyel is relatively new and the staff isn't trained, also the list of residense country of guests did not include Israel
The breakfast was great. Beautiful beach. The address says Aveiro, but this hotel is actually on the beach, Praia de Barra, a 30 minute bus ride or 15 minute taxi ride from Aveiro. The room was not ready when we got there, and we got a double bed rather than the two single beds that I booked.
next to the beautifull aveiro lighthouse. It is a good option to one who likes to explore the nature, particullary the "ria de aveiro". Wireless internet available. it is like beed and breakfast, no more options to enjoy your stay.
