Hotel Afonso III2.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
This hotel seems to take a bit of a battering on trip advisor. I think that's unfair We stayed 3 nights and couldn't fault it. Yeah it's fairly small room and basic but we slept very well. The air con is quiet and works well, the shower is good and it's 5 mins walk from the main areas of town so what more do you want?! Oh yeah, the breakfasts are great. Loads of choice and plenty of fresh fruit served from 6.30-10am. If you want a hotel to sleep in and be central this is great. If you want a luxury hotel and want to spend a lot of time in your room (not sure why you'd want to) then this hotel isn't for you.
Nice place. My room (108) to noisy since was in street front. Room and WC very small, old but clean. Breakfast was really good and above 2 stars hotels average. Price was however to high for this hotel and location.
This hotel sits in a rather run down part of the city on what seems to be the main road in to the old town . However the inside of the hotel ,although dated , is very clean and the staff all very friendly. The rooms were cleaned daily , breakfast had a huge choice of fruits, meat, cheeses, eggs and breads and was continuously replenished. It was also only 5 min walk from the main restaurant area/ marina. The only downside was our room was facing the road so there was traffic noise til around 12.30am and there is no sound deadening between rooms so you could hear next door showering and even shaving . All in all it is a decent enough place to stay and we would stay again .
I'm sorry to say but I do not have much positive to say about this hotel, aside from the young lady at the front desk who was very nice and the convenient location. There is mildew and water damage throughout the entire hotel, bathtub with rust, balcony doors don't close well, my room reeked of tobacco and barely slept all night because of rain dripping on a nearby tin roof. Maybe I was unlucky with the room I got (3rd floor) but I never plan returning here.
We picked this hotel because of it's location, we stayed overnight to then catch the train to Tavira. The train station is a very short stroll away. The rooms are a little dated but very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was also very good and plentiful. We would stay here again if we went back to Faro. Thank you.
We got a great deal on this hotel and couldn't understand why the reviews were so wide ranged. The bad the hotel is located in a run down area and could clearly do with being updated. BUT It is spotlessly clean and only around 7 minutes walk to the lovely Marina which is surrounded by shops, cafes and the walls of Old Faro. Breakfast is a continental buffet with an extensive selection which is constantly replenished. Maid service is daily and thorough. The bed is lovely and firm and the tv boasts many channels. Wifi is free and quick. A really great find.
Residencial Afonso III is an old, traditional style hotel very close to Faro train and bus stations, walking distance even with heavy luggage. The area does not seem inviting near a derelict factory and old abandoned commercial premises but apparently they're heritage buildings. The room at the back had no traffic noise and was very quiet. Beds and furniture are old but solid and everything is clean and maintained. In room Wi-fi is ok. Air-con, old box TV but with English channels. Large bathroom. Breakfast starts early at 6.30am and is better than some 4 star hotels with a big range of bakery, with fruit, cheese and hams, yogurts, cereals, boiled eggs etc. all included in the price of the room. Room rates are reasonable for a relatively expensive airport town. There's a small bar. Staff are good. Would stay again.
Thoroughly enjoyed my stay here, would definitely stay here again. A bit noisy at times at the front of the hotel as it's on one of the main routes into the city centre, but no big deal for me personally. Close to the train and bus station, short walk to Faro centre and to the Forum Mall. Fantastic choice of breakfast.
I have to say, I'm very impressed. Can't understand people who are complaining about it! We paid 100 euro for 3 nights in a double room, with a balcony and a private bathroom. It's dated and basic, but spotlessly clean. Staff are helpful (Jose was very good) and the breakfast is perfect :) Coffee, lots of types of tea, cheese, variety of meat, fruit, muffins, cereal, etc. It was included in the price for us aswell (and free wi-fi, which was perfect) so we were more than happy. It's a stones throw from bus/train station and less than 10 to town. People who are complaining about the abandoned buildings need to relax; they're not an eyesore (well, I guess that's my opinion). They're a part of Faro's history and are really cool! I'd advise anyone who doesn't like history or architecture to stay away from Faro! It's a great hotel, and was a bargain in our eyes! Thanks for everything, Antoinette and Jose.
