This is a nice friendly hotel and good value for money. The rooms have air conditioning and a kettle and fridge so was perfect for our overnight stay before an early flight from Faro. Loved the city (far nicer than Albufeira Old Town) but what a shame there is so much grafitti on the historic buildings everywhere.
A very welcoming place.... the staff were more than helpful, especially Senorita Fatima, Head Receptionist. She was a great help in finding me an extra night's accommodation at the hotel. Thank you very much.
Well located, walking distance to downtown, friendly staff in the afternoon shift. Just a few parking spaces, so we had to leave the car somewhere else. They do not have much cleaning staff, we had to check in later, because the room was not ready and on another day we came back at 13:00 h from a cycling tour and the room was not done. The excuse was that we have to let them know if we want them to clean our room before the others... first time having this issue in an hotel and I travel a lot.
Just back from a short break at this hotel.The staff were friendly and professional.My room was ensuite and the maids did a good job keeping it clean.There was a kettle and a fridge in the room also.The breakfast was a good continental type with hard boiled eggs.Location was good,no more than 10 mins and you were by the marina and all the shops.Now for the negatives.More observations than criticisms.A minor one first.I like hot food at breakfast.I think the hotel could offer say bacon,scrambled eggs and sausage as a selection.I dont think that would cause a big problem for them.Just a thought.My second is the dogs barking through the night from the house in the back street.I know the hotel cant really do anything about that.I was there 3 nights and could stand it for that.If I was there longer it would be a problem.All in all a pleasant stay.Would i stay there again,yes.Provided i was in a room on the main road away from the constant barking through the night.
Excellent hotel easy to get to easy walk to marina very friendly andhelpful staff spoke good English. enjoyed the whole experience. very clean we had a good view Food good and friut on offer would recommend price excellent snd good value
Needed to stay close to the airport to get an early flight. This hotel is just 5 miles away and suitedus perfectly. Most important is that there was a kettle in the room. Something that continental hotels seem to leave out. Had a lovely meal in the evening next to the harbour just a few minutes walk away.
You get what you pay for, which is perfectly good in this instance. Staff were all very friendly and helpful, helped us out the first night when we realised we'd forgotten to pack toothpaste! Always available to get stuff from behind the bar like bottles of water if needed, and check-in/out was painless. We arrived well before the 1400 check-in time, and while the room wasn't ready they immediately showed us where we could drop bags. When we came back we were still a little bit early but the room was ready for us which was great. The room was nice, could see the sea from where we were over the city. Nice big space with a comfy bed, tv, desk, huge wardrobe, chair etc... Air Con also working which was good for the warm nights. Bathroom was massive and perfectly good (hairdryer for the missus). Shower head struggled to stay perfectly upright for long but worse things have happened. The WiFi dropped a couple of times but it was probably just karma for not being out in the sun enjoying ourselves. All in all a very comfortable stay. The breakfast included was an all you can eat continental buffet, everything you'd need to fill yourself up until lunch. Also available between 0730 and 1030 so no need to set an alarm and worry about missing it which is good! Good location about a 5-10 minute walk from the marina, with plenty of cafes, bars, restaurants on the way in. Great value and would happily stay again!
Contrary to several negative views on this site I found the hotel to be clean, the rooms were serviced every day, the bed was a tad on the firm side but nevertheless I slept fairly well. There was not too much noise, apart from a local dog which barked for 10 mins every night at 6 !! I thought the hotel was well situated but as I need a walking stick perhaps it was a little too far out - all in all a good experience
A great hotel with very friendly staff.very convenient and close to the Harbour and Old Town. Great Wifi and bathroom.....My balcony looked out towards the Church with the Storks!! Nice busy City location with minimal noise for area. Loved It..! Would book it again in a heartbeat ! Best wishes. William
This is a lovely friendly small hotel of the highest standards. It is about 10 minutes walk from the rail station, marina and old town, although the route needs studying carefully because of the randomness of street directions. The rooms are very comfortable and clean with a reasonable selection of English speaking TV channels, free wi-fi and drink making facilities. The upper floors have wonderful views of the estuary. On floor 5, you are at the level of the stork nest on the church roof across the road – a real bonus so take advantage of the view of the nest. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is a continental buffet, very well represented and more than adequate. The reception area is relaxing with a bar for guests. Thoroughly recommended. I would stay here again without hesitation; as we have done already.
