The Meliá Ria Hotel is located in a superior quality residential development in the centre of Aveiro, with views of the lake formed by the River Ria de Aveiro. Located next to the Cultural and Congress Centre and the train station, just a short distance from the historical heart of the city, 7 km from the beaches, and 60 minutes from Porto airport, with easy access to the A1, IP5 and IC1 highways.
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.
Good presentation,everything clean,excelent breakfast
whater not very warm in the 1st night
Excellent location, great staff, very helpfull. Rooms excellent quality
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.
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
Spacious room; very well located
very expansive breakfast; no internet included
Breakfast was good, except the orange juice.
Improve the price-quality relation.
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.
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.
