After receiving a friendly greeting, we were delighted to be shown to a clean, spacious and attractive room with a superb view from the balcony.

Hotel Farol is a small boutique hotel, located in Praia da Barra, just in front of the lighthouse - one of tallest in Europe -, and it is less than one minute walk away from the beach.

I took this hotel just to get a rest on the way from Lisbon to Porto. But as I arrived, it looked really better than expected. To say the truth it looked just as a really good economy hotel. The stuff was friendly, they were fluent in English, gave all directions on landmarks in Aveiro and offered what to do...

I've written a fair amount of reviews for this site, and so far only been positive about the places we've stayed. Now I understand that the people who write negative reviews aren't just being picky or unlucky - there are bad hotels out there, and this is one of them. We are 30-year-old career break backpackers, and we're trying to...
