Universal Boutique Hotel, Figueira da Foz

While I was in Figueira da Foz, I stayed three nights at the Universal Boutique Hotel. It is conveniently located one block away from the beach and within walking distance to the city centre. The room was a bit small but super cosy and clean. I really liked the design of the hotel and I was very happy to discover that I had made the right decision by having chosen this one. 


Figueira da Foz food experience: restaurants & cafés

ICE CREAM - I was lucky to be staying near the Emanha Geladaria, a great ice cream parlour. They had so many yummy flavours to choose from! 


Figueira da Foz

After a brief stop in Aveiro, I arrived in Figueira da Foz, where I stayed for three nights. It's a fairly quiet place. I would go jogging in the morning, have breakfast, lie on the beach. In the afternoon, I'd go for walks, rest in my hotel room and then go out for dinner. I will show you the food pics in my next post. 



After my stay in Porto, on my way down to Figueira da Foz, I stopped in Aveiro for an afternoon. Here are a few impressions. 


Sheraton Porto Hotel & Spa

I stayed four nights at the five star Sheraton Porto Hotel & Spa because it had very positive reviews. And I was not disappointed. I went to the gym a couple of times and I used the spa area. The amenities were top quality; as you would expect from a top hotel. On one occasion I had to call assistance because the safe was blocked. The issue was taken care of within five minutes. The Sheraton is located in a quiet area in Boavista, which is not in the very city centre. Outside the hotel, however, cabs and bus stops were available. The closest tube station, Casa da Música is 20 minutes away by foot.
