    The design of the hotel. The sympathy of the hotel staff except the ones related to the spa.

    I work as business consultant and travel a lot. Having to decide which hotel to stay in Aveiro, I've choose this because it said it has an interior pool. "Great", I though. That way I could relax after a hard day's work. For the first time in my life (and I've been in lots of hotels around Europe) they asked me to pay an extra fee to access the pool! Not because of the value (10€) but because of the attitude. I felt sad and express my sadness to the staff. They replied: "you didn't read the [small] letters??" I then felt not only sad but also angry, stupid and robbed! Because this bad service I've decided to eliminate Meliá Hotels from my list of options. Too bad they prefer to keep a low cost product instead of a high value customer (in the long run).

    The cleaniness of the rooms and helpful staff

    The "best rate" only gets you the "worst room", facing the parking lot.

    Free wireless Internet in the room.

    The room was to hot and need to use air conditioning almost the time to cold down the temperature.

  • Older travelers

    The style, the situation near the town centre, the cleanliness, and the friendliness of the staff.

    Only one thing, there was no independent control of the air conditioning/heating system in the room and we found the room rather too hot.

  • Couple
    8.2

    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.

    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.

  • Couple

    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

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    Excellent attractive location, helpful staff and ideal for tourism and shopping. External appearance is somewhat quirky but interior is very good, comfortable and with all the facilties that are required. Thanks for the free wifi!

    Please remove the plastic flowers/plants on all floors. They are not in keeping with a 4* establishment.

  • Single
    7.4

    Modern hotel with a spa, clean, free Internet, friendly staff.

    From business traveller's viewpoint it is strange that there is no ironing board available even at request. Portuguese specialty?

  • Couple

    Good breakfast and ideal to visit Aveiro and surroundings.

    The bed was not very comfortable.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    The room was very inviting and spotlessly clean with all the facilities you need. The location was good and we had a great view from the 5th floor. Having a completely no smoking floor was excellent. The price was really good and great value for money as we had already stayed in Averio last year and paid nearly three times the price.

    We found the main areas of the hotel lacked any feeling of belonging. It always seemed to be empty with very little going on.

  • Older travelers
    7.0

    The rooms were nice & comfortable with good views. Easy to walk into Aveiro in under 5 mins.

    We did not realise we had to pay 10 euros a day per person to use the pool/spa. May well say that in the description but needs to be more obvious. We are used to such things being included!

    It smells good everywhere! Very good spa, beautiful and well kept decoration. The breakfast is also nice, both continental and full-English.

    Excellent location, very good quality of rooms and service, good quality/price ratio

    A bit noise in the night, due to a cafereria nearby
