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.
Hotel in excellent location and very good value for money.
It was in a good central position The furniture and decor were rather outdated
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.
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.
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
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.
Elegant hotel which appears to have undergone some upgrading recently. Great location and easy to find. Staff delightful. n/a
Top location in all of Aveiro. VERY professional and courteous staff. João was exceptional.
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.
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.
Comfortable room and excellent parking available. Limited information in room on locality and lack of tea/coffee making facilities in room.
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.
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.
The food and spa The location
Excellent location, great staff, very helpfull. Rooms excellent quality
Good presentation,everything clean,excelent breakfast whater not very warm in the 1st night
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
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.
Breakfast was good, except the orange juice. Improve the price-quality relation.
Spacious room; very well located very expansive breakfast; no internet included
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.
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 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.
Good facilities; Good breakfast; Restaurant
The staff very pleasant and the rooms very space and very clean
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.
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
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.
nice clean comfortable room. pleasant staff needed tea/coffee making facilities in room
Felt like a 5 star, but the staff were very nice and down-to-earth. Double beds are 2 singles pushed together.
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.
Excellent location, very helpful friendly staff, beautifully decorated rooms. If you are in Alveiro, this should definitely be the place to stay.
very warm welcome and tourist guidance for the town, help find parking
The room, breakfast and the very friendly and helpful staff, also the location
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.
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.
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.
It was close to city centre ... Breakfast was not good, Couldn't find any accessible sockets to charge mobile, laptop etc, no free WLAN
Nice room Room
comfortable and clean room; huge breakfast selection the hotel should need to be renovated, especially the bathrooms
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
great location and price
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.
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.
The buffet breakfast was excellent and i like they way the conserve energy the hotel was convenience to shopping and site
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.
Nice breakfast Fast internet in some rooms
The staff was excellent. Minor electric malfunctions. Could no turnTV on by remote control.
easy acess to town Aveiro and space to park your car . nope the hotel it is perfect!!!
Room was large, clean and comfortable.
friendly, good value for money no wifi available in the room
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.
Silence around, near center, good breakfast. Bath towel with a stain, some hair and some beach sand in the room.
The room was very clean and comfortable. Also the bathroom was very clean, Breakfast was excellent.
Good value hotel in walking distance of centre.
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.
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.
Dichtbij de oceaan en gratis parkeren aan de straat. Mooi authentiek plaatsjes, en dichtbij Aveiro (15 minuten rijden). Daarnaast konden we er gratis fietsen lenen. Verder heerlijk gegeten en bediend aan de boulevard bij Canastra do Fidalgo!
A clean and quiet hotel located close enough to the sea. Friendly and helpful staff, more than a sufficient breakfast buffet, small rooms but equipped reasonably. During a high season parking your car could be a problem - the hotel does not have its own car park.
Is centrally located in Costa Nova. Hotel and its facilities are clean and well maintained. Breakfast is ok and typical for hotels in Portugal. Room was quite small, a bit narrow.
Location close to the beach and restaurants etc. Extremely bad for parking. (During the high season it must be almost impossible to find anywhere). The balcony just had a view of the building opposite. The breakfast was awful. There was no air conditioning - which would make the room very uncomfortable in hot weather.
The room was clean and the breakfast was good. Very friendly hotel staff. The room interior looked quite castoff and the door of the room could not be closed because of damaged door handle (i saw the same in several room's).
Having a parking available for the guests and the family atmosphere. N/A
The area itself, hotel very pleasant, very clean and breakfast adequate. No outlook but it did not spoil our stay.
clean, good value for money poor breakfast
good location. not far from beach and fish restaurant. Good for summer vacation. they have twin beds not double as expected
Good location to visit Aveiro and the Ria de Aveiro.
Classy reception area and beautiful breakfast room. Easy to find. Free private parking a bonus. Staff not very welcoming. 1km walk from city centre, but felt safe.
Very comfortable hotel, well located for the town. Staff were very friendly and helpful.
I liked the welcoming athmosphere, the beautiful old part of the hotel with the restaurant; the excellent breakfast; the comfort of the rooms; the location, close to the station and the centre of town. The view from the room (109) is not so nice; and it is a pity that there were no chairs on the private terrace.
Good location, quiet, good buffet breakfast.
very clean, great breakfast selection, helpful attentive staff, child freindly.
Very polite check-in service. Very polite staff in general. Breakfast was not impressive however.. Kind regards Frank See above
Breakfast, cleanliness, garage, in spite of a little complicated by the space to drive.
Complimentary champagne given to celebrate anniversary as part of excellent service by helpful staff
Close enough to city center (10 minutes walk), free parking place in front of hotel, very comfortable, clean and quiet Nothing special, everithing was good
We had breakfast out the second morning, as hotel breakfast very poor.
Very pleasant, helpful and friendly staff. Good size room and bathroom. Good standard of comfort in public areas. Very interesting and informative tiling in corridor to breakfast room. Breakfast room was shared with sister hotel, Jardim Afonso v, which led to overcrowding at busy times, with no tables vacant after collecting buffet. A busy road nearby was noisy at night and there was no internal access to the garage from the hotel.
near city center
A safe, middle of the road hotel just 10 minutes by taxi to the centre of Averio. Free street parking or a small charge for hotel parking. Buffet breakfast and hotel restaurant (closed Sun eve and Mon). Safe were very pleasant and spoke reasonable English. Will call taxi and make reservations for restaurants in town. Just a little bit tired looking - but good value for money and easy access overwrite this.
Nothing Building work at the school across from the hotel, a generator was running 24 hours a day - very noisy! The room was cold and the air-con unit took hours to remove the chill. The hot water machine at breakfast was broken too! The TV kept turning itself off and the picture was terrible.
location and decor nowwhere to get a coffee only a bar which did not open until 6.30
Fantastic hotel and very cheap nothing
good hotel with all facilities you may need, internet, little ''business'' centre, good beds, 10 minutes walk from the centre of town.good value for money
The hotel is very clean and big enough for 3 beds. We could stay comfortable enough without bumping into each other. All staff is polity, nice and helpful. The hotel is very quiet and it is easy to park very close to the hotel without having to pay an extra fee.
tranquility the children
very nice interior, swimming pool, garden. Staff is very helpfull and friendly. The hotel is situated in a nice and quiet holiday development just outside Praia de Mira. The bikes you can rent at the hotel are old and tired. We started for a long rind along the wonderfull cycling paths. But obviously those bikes (no gears) were not up for this challenge. To start they were very heavy and the had only one gear. They didn't even have lights. Our bike had a broken sadle and a flat tire. The price for these bikes was way to high: 3€/hr. (july 09). The hotel management should definetly invest in better bikes. The cycling opportunities in that area are amazing there.
Size of the "apartment",quiet area. The breakfast is poor for a 4 star hotel, the heater of the bedroom is not that great.I needed some toothpaste and the hotel only had some that were already expired,that's not a 4 start service.
Very nice interior, swimming pool, garden. Staff is very helpfull and friendly. The hotel is situated in a nice and quiet holiday development just outside Praia de Mira. Excelent restaurant. No swimming pool for little childrens... Not walking distance to Praia de Mira and the sea.
Nice modern hotel in Mira Villas 5-10 minutes drive from Praia de Mira. Mini-kitchen, balcony, nice modern room. Good breakfast. Good pool. Nice staff. Not walking distande to Praia de Mira and the sea.
Being a Aparthotel, it´s bad that in the Studio´s there is no microwaves, and there is nothing to wash and clean the dishes, for example. These are the negative points for me.
The pool and facilities around it, the room was good and the buffet breakfast was good. The separate dining arrangements were well done and the service was first class.. I did not like the area of Praia beach, which was just like Blackpool only worse! I realize that this is not the fault of the hotel. The weather was not too good either.
The very nice interior design, and hotel staff
the hotel had a good range of facilities for you to occupy your time
Very big rooms with great infrastructure, washing machines in the rooms. A bit old but nice building. Very nice sports infrastructure. Building needs some minor renewal. Not as near to the sea side as we had thought.
not much. I could tell that it may have been a great place at one time, but the property has not been kept up to date. The indoor swimming pool was GREAT! Most of the resort was very dated - not kept up and very isolated. Hard to find. Couldn't beleive I had to pay for borrowing tennis rackets for an hour. I didn't get that from their website. I was happy that we only stayed here for one night.
The staff, location, services and food are exellent. Highly recomended for the price. Beware of Booking dot com's location, it is wrong, I spent 1 1/2 hours driving around Toreira before discovering it is not even in this beach town. This is clearly a problem with booking.com
Spacious rooms. High ceilings. Nicely furnished. Balcony off bedroom. Breakfast included in price. Clean. Has potential for the summer. Do not recommend in cooler weather. Cold(May 6). No heat. Swimming pool not open. Paid for buffet supper on site rather than eat @ restaurant in town & found food somewhat expensive for the quality we had become accustomed to in Portugal. Good choice of food, but it was not warm. Salmon steak tasted overcooked and as if they had been sitting for awhile before being served. Fado musicians were a half beat off from each other.
The location is nice. The hotel facilities are nice. The breakfast could be better. There was a strange smell in the hotel corridor (not in the room).
Very nice staff, but spoke very little english. Picturesqu property with nice sized and well equiped rooms.
The view from the room and from the terrace. The shower curtains, the bugs/leaves floating on the pool and the slow attendance at the hotel reception.
A very quiet place
Friendliness of staff, quiet location, good value for money Poor directions, map and signage.
Absolutely charming setting.Excellent decoration throughout hotel. Staff helpful.Adjacent restaurant served very good food.
Good location away from the crowd of the city Aveiro. Very cosy and friendly staff. The pool was closed and the breakfast was very limited.
very nice staff no indications to reach the hotel
most things: good facilities, good location, very friendly staff. Very noisy late at night due to catering facilities personnel activities from restaurant next to hotel
This hotel was a great place to stay. The staff and owner were so kind and helpful. The room was comfortable. It overlooked the garden area. The garden area was comfortable and relaxing as well. I would stay here again and I would recommend this to others. The directions to drive to the hotel were not clear on the internet. We didn't have GPS so it was difficult to find it the first time. Once we knew where it was, it was easy to get to.
It was confortable for us because of air-conditioner was putting in.
Pleasant family run establishment with some speaking good English.Nice pool area. Had English TV channels.. The Tuesday night l was there the restaurant was shut and there was nowhere within walking distance.Had to have pizza delivered.
I don´t like this hotel I don´t like this hotel
