Stayed there in May for two nights. It was about 10 minutes walk from the centre. Great hotel room with balcony overlooking the storks nesting on the church tower. Clean hotel and super friendly english speaking hotel staff. Breakfast 6 euros and pretty good. Would stay again

Chose this hotel for our 4 night stay in Faro. It was economical and good value. It looks like it is a bit away from the centre but the city is very small, you can walk from this hotel to the marina in 10 minutes. Breakfast was included in the price and this was continental buffet style, teas and coffee, juices, cereals, cheese, eggs, hams etc, fruit and bread. Very much a see to yourself set up. Room was spacious with huge bed, shower over the bath, tv, air con...all we needed. The reception staff were extremely helpful and spoke good English they also manned the small bar 24 hrs. Wifi in the rooms was very good. Only negative comment I would make is that noise carries within the hotel and this can disturb at times, cleaners, other guests, and dogs.

My wife already posted a great review of this place just recently as we spent 3 days there. She posted the night before we were about to leave. We enjoyed our stay, staff were very friendly, nice and clean ect. The next morning we got our final packing done and we realised her phone was missing. We know it was in the room only during our stay as it was not working. We reported it as stolen and had to rush to catch a bus. We were assured our complaint would be followed up. My wife has sent two emails with absolutely no reply .This is not good enough. Theft is one thing and we do realise that these things happen. However the fact that they have done nothing and given us no reply is totally unprofessional. My advice don't stay here. You may get something stolen and if you do your on your own!!!!

When we first arrived in Faro and wondered aimlessly up the street from the train station looking for our accommodation I thought 'oh no what have we done'. Once we finally found our hotel ( no ,it's not hard to find- we were just disorganised) I gave a sigh of relief. This place is very plain and understated but absolutely lovely. Great friendly service as soon as we walked in from Dina (she loves Brad Pitt). We were early and she went out of her way to give us an early checkin. Room lovely and clean. Breakfast basic but good. Sorry but the coffee would be my only lament ( I'm a serious coffee snob though) hotel was close to old area and the marina- 10 minutes walk. Must visit bone church just a couple minutes walk from hotel. All in all great staff and comfortable place to stay.

Headline says it all. Got very nice room, top floor seaside/town view. Beautiful view! Staff was very friendly and helpful. Needed a quite place for a work related skypecall and they offered me to use the conference room for an hour. Breakfast was just what you need for to start your day. Fruit, cereals, eggs, delicious variety of bread, some veggies, cold cut meats, cheeses etc. Very nice lady in breakfast room as well. Location was great! Airport bus took about 15 min from airport to bus station. about 10 min walk to bus/train station, 5 min walk to big supermarket and indoor market. Nice restaurants just around the corner in old town. 10 min walk to marina etc. 10 min walk to gym and football arena. It was clean, refrigerator on the room, safety box, great beds, linnen and nice bathroom. 24h reception and cameras on each floor. Felt safe.

I stayed here for 3 nights with my mother. Firsty, the hotel is a bit dated. Other than that it is excellent. The staff are lovely, the bed linen was pristine, the rooms and hotel were spotless.the breakfast had a good choice for a small hotel and the lady who serves breakfast is lovely and very helpful. When you come out of the front of the hotel and turn left and then take second left it is an 8 to 10 minute walk to the marina, the old town, the bus and rail stations. This part of Faro is lovely and well worth visiting. with plenty of restuarents. You can also get a boat from here to the "desert island" beach. It is only a short boat ride and a few euros. There were other boat rides that were very reasonable. From 10 euros upwards. You can also get the bus, no 16 from the bus station to the a spectacular beach. It is only 25 mins on the bus and well worth it. I think 3 days is enough to see Faro but well worth a visit. The hotel staff are not well paid so it is nice to leave a tip.

Our flight arrived late evening, so we decided to stay overnight in Faro before picking up our hire car and travelling on to the western Algarve next day. We were given a warm, friendly welcome. Our room and bathroom were a good size and, although the furniture was a bit dated, everything was spotlessly clean. The bed was comfortable, there was lots of hot water and really good wifi. Next morning a tasty and substantial breakfast (€6 each!!) set us up for our journey. Fantastic value for money. Exactly what we wanted.

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.
