Meliá Ria Hotel & Spa, Aveiro
Perfect choice for traveling with car
We were struggling with finding a good hotel with safe parking and decided on the Melia Ria as a base for our day trip to Porto. What a perfect choice it was! Melia Ria offers exceptional service, well appointed spacious modern rooms and spotless clean bathrooms, great swimming pool and decent gym, spa is available as well (we did not try it). Their restaurant is excellent: delicious breakfast with endless selection of meats, cheeses, eggs, and mouthwatering pastries, Nespresso machine is available as well. We also had dinner at the hotel and it was just perfect - try their Portuguese fish pie with potatoes (Bacalhau) and their sea bass grilled to perfection. Safe garage parking was a big plus for us (6€ per day). The hotel is less than 10 minutes from the train station with frequent service to Porto. We took a train and were in Porto in 45 minutes avoiding hassle with finding parking for our rental car. The location is very safe, the river and the gondolas are right next to the hotel. You can walk along the river to the upscale mall with many good restaurants and the supermarket is also nearby. I would stay in Melia Ria and in lovely Aveiro in a heartbeat. So happy with our two nights stay!

Rude front desk
This hotel is located in a beautiful area and the building is outstanding. The only problem that we encountered was the front desk staff were rude and difficult to deal with. They need to change the staff at front desk and it would make this place perfect.

Great location and very modern. Good parking and walking areas. Very close to the center of town, shopping and great views.

Hotel was in works, that's nothing wrong, but I was advised about it only 1 day before my stay. Neither informed me. And the price and all services had usual prices, no discount. To pay 10€ for using 40' running machine being hotel guest seems to me ridiculous
