The Melia Ria Hotel Aveiro is a large, modern four-star hotel situated right on the banks of one of Aveiro’s famous canals, close to the famous former Jeronimo Campos Ceramic Factory in a smart residential area which has been sympathetically restored and developed in recent years.
The hotel offers a total of 128 rooms of various sizes and styles distributed over five floors, all of which boast a table, armchair, writing desk and double or twin beds. The décor is comfortable, modern and functional, and is perfect both for business travellers and for the sightseers who come to explore the streets and canals of the colourful city of Aveiro in west-central Portugal.
Each room benefits from satellite television with multiple-language channels and pay-per-view channels, Wi-Fi, in-room safe, en-suite bathroom with hair dryer and magnifying mirror, direct dial telephone in main room and bathroom, mini bar and air conditioning. For families travelling with children, interconnecting rooms are available and the hotel also has two junior suites with separate living area complete with sofa bed.
Business travellers or tourists needing to work while staying at the Melia Ria Hotel Aveiro will benefit from the well-equipped business centre which offers secretarial services, internet access, fax and photocopying.
For those simply looking for a comfortable base from which to explore the city and the surrounding area, the Melia Ria Hotel Aveiro makes a compelling choice. The hotel offers an extensive entertainment programme during the summer season, and benefits from a wellness centre which is open all year round, offering an indoor heated swimming pool, Turkish bath, sauna and whirlpool.
A fitness room is also at guests’ disposal to ensure they are able to keep up their regimes while they are travelling, and for those of an active disposition there are tennis courts nearby and plenty of water sport activities to be had on the Aveiro lagoon and on the broad sandy beaches that are so typical of Portugal, located just a few kilometres from the city centre.
For those travelling around Portugal by car, there is car parking available at the hotel complex. It is certainly worthwhile to have transport if you are staying in Aveiro for more than a few days, to give you the opportunity to discover some of the historic attractions a little further afield, and the hotel has car hire facilities on site at competitive rates should you wish rent one.
