Located near a train station, Hotel Jardim is a great choice for a stay in Aveiro. You can unwind with a drink at the bar/lounge, and buffet breakfast is available daily. Rooms offer minibars and free WiFi.
It is adjacent to another hotel owned by the same group and they are tucked away in a neighborhood, which is interesting and quiet. As a single woman traveler, I felt perfectly safe as I walked everywhere, even late at night. The hotel is really not far from the center, since Aveiro is so small, but I might prefer to stay closer in to the center if I go again. That said, I would recommend this hotel as it is clean and perfectly adequate.Pros: It is clean with friendly staff. The room was simple but certainly adequate. I especially liked that I could open the window for fresh air.Cons: My room did not have a desk which would have been helpful on that particular trip. I saw that other rooms did have desks, so it's a minor point and did not deter from my opinion of the hotel on the whole.
It was nice to be able to walk just about everywhere. Some of the best restaurants were in the historic district.Pros: The location was within walking distance to the historic part of the city. Parking was free, the breakfast was wonderful and the staff was very helpful. I would gladly recommend this hotel.Cons: The pillows were firmer than I prefer but the room was very clean.
