3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Plus: good value for money, not far from the city centre, clean, staff were very friendly and checked us in early as we arrived early Minus: not very noise isolated, noises from the outside can easily be heard inside the rooms.

Stayed for 3 nights. All staff friendly and welcoming. We were given a lovely room with a double bed and good sized bathroom with jacuzzi bath. Room well equipped and we used the air con heating as it was cool when we visited. Nice to have a kettle and tea and coffee and fridge. TV had lots of English channels. Good value and good location as only a 10-15 minute walk to virtually everything including the bus and train stations. We took the train to Tavira. A beautiful town well worth a visit and only about 35 minutes away. Train fares are cheaper than the bus fares. Overall we thought the hotel made a good base for exploring Faro and beyond.

I keep coming back here as it is so central and welcoming. As I have mentioned before the people working there are so helpful and pleasant. It is a perfect location for walking to the main town of Faro, where there are fantastic restaurants and great shops. The rooms and shower rooms are clean, tea/coffee making facilities, hair dryer, wi-fi is free. Please read the welcome pack as there are lots more facilities available. Reception will order a taxi which is always prompt. Well worth a visit

Stayed only for a night. Accommodation was more than enough for me and my wife. Staff was friendly. Room was clean. Free parking (limited spaces) on site. Just park once and walk around the historic district of Faro. Definitely would stay again!

Only stayed here one night on our way back from a tour of Southern Portugal, however we loved Faro and wished we had planned to stay here longer! The hotel is situated just a short stroll down into the Old Town and staff were very friendly and helpful. We were even offered breakfast half an hour earlier than the normal opening times, as we had an early flight. Thank you for this! Room was extremely clean, basic but comfortable - great value for money. No grumbles at all, parking available behind the hotel. We will be back for longer for a return visit!

Great hotel with super customer service. The room and bathroom were newly decorated and very clean and comfortable. The staff were all very friendly, knowledgable and helpful. The hotel was very good value for money. Faro is a quiet town but great for a weekend break. Nice authentic restaurants and bars.

We stayed 2 night in the Dom Bernardo. reception staff is very friendly and helpful. We had room 504 on the last floor with a long balcony with a view on a stork nest (it was unfortunately empty when we were there); as a matter of fact the room is a suite, with a very spacious main room, another room with a small bed and the bathroom, also spacious The room was clean, and it takes about 10 minutes to go to the center of Faro on foot.

We had a positive experience at the Best Western Hotel. Upon arrival we were greeted by a front desk staff, who was very friendly and helpful in suggesting to us places to visit and to eat. Also, throughout our stay the staff did their best to be helpful and went above and beyond (ex. heated up our leftover food and provided dishes). There is free parking available at the back of the hotel; there are only 7 spots (first come, first serve), but the staff suggested alternatives in case the parking is full. Our room was clean and we had no issues with anything malfunctioning. As for sleep quality, the bed was comfortable and it was quiet during nighttime. The furniture and amenities are somewhat worn out, but it is a 3-star hotel after all. As Faro is a small city, it takes only about 10 minutes to get to the downtown / old town area and about 10-15 minutes to get to the train station. We would definitely recommend the Best Western Hotel for those looking to stay for a few nights in Faro.

After reading some of the negative reviews, I would disagree a lot with some peoples expectations, yes its a 3 star hotel, but room was spacious and very clean, the maid service was very good, we stayed for 7 days, reception staff very helpful, we stayed in room 209 at the rear. Yes there are some noisy dogs on yapping but at the end of the day they belong to the locals, We found a lovely little cafe in the next road by the square with Menu of the Day, the owner Carlos was so friendly and we let him choose what we were going to eat !! His peppered steak was great, my husband had pork kebabs with pineapple very tasty, his fish is also brilliant. In short this was a relaxing weeks break to a resort we have never visited before.

I booked this hotel because of its value and position on TripAdvisor and I wasn't disappointed. The hotels frontage is a little shabby and could do with a lick of paint, but that is where my only criticism ends. From the moment you walk through the sliding doors you are warmly greeted by the front of desk who could not be more helpful throughout our three nights stay. The whole hotel is very clean from the lobby to the bedrooms, The rooms are very comfortable, with fridge, safe, coffee and tea facilities and were cleaned every day. The location of the hotel is great and very close to the marina with its restaurants and bars. Well worth the price
