Hotel Afonso III2.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Arrived very late to the hotel on a Saturday night due to late flight into Faro. Tried to find parking nearby but took over an hour driving around trying to find a space close to the hotel but every nook and cranny were taken on these very small roads. So quite stressful until we found one. However the receptionist was very friendly when we arrived. Breakfast was not included as stated but paid for it the next morning and was a pleasant buffet. Our room was very very noisy from the road and hearing people shower in next room. very small and basic but clean. Ok for a quick stopover and probably a lot easier to park during the day.
I stayed here for a week and it had been a good week. Very nice room, staff, breakfast and it is placed very central. Big roomservice, very helpfull staff. A lot of different things for breakfast. So close to city, train and bus. Could not be much better for the cheap price. Try it
We found the room clean and comfortable staff were very helpful we only arrived late at night my husband is disabled and we had a ground floor room , the breakfast was buffet style and lots of choice and all very well presented we will book it again . as it was good for our stopover for our flight the next day on the negative side on the internet it says free breakfast but it wasnt is close to rail and bus station and city centre xxx
Location is on a busy road which all the coaches use to get to the bus terminal. Avoid a room on this side of the building if you can, if not it'll be loud. Room was a little run down, some lights not working, light switch showing bare wire. Tiny tv in the top corner of the room-might as well not bother with one when it's so small. Having said that the bed was ok and the shower was fine. Staff were friendly and helpful printing some documents for me free of charge.l Good for a stopover but I wouldn't recommend for multiple nights.
I stayed there after a flight from Porto and before leaving the next day from the bus station. It gets a positive review mostly because of their receptionist, Marina, that welcomed me that night. I was tired by travelling the entire day and I have never seen a happier and more helpful person in a hotel ever! Completely made me feel happy to be checking in there! Room was clean and reasonably sized and breakfast was included in the price so easy to eat and go in the morning. Bus station is very close to the hotel and city so a plus point. On the negative side, they advertised a free shuttle bus from the airport but when I called them _before my flight_ to arrange the exact time of pickup they said they didn't have availability and that they would charge me 15 euros anyway so I might as well take a taxi, which I ended up taking and it cost me less. They should definitely update their website to reflect this.
We were absolutely loving Lagos, however we needed to stay in Faro near airport for our 5.30 airport checkin. In a monthlong trip of guest houses and Air B&B, this was our first 'hotel' choice as it was offered at an attractive price. We loved our night here. We really needed an afternoon long rest, and our ac room and private bathroom w tub was just the ticket! The front desk staff were super helpful and arranged a 5.15 am taxi for us. Thanks!!
Stayed here for 2 nights before our trip home and having never stopped here before decided to give it a go. It is very close to the railway and bus stations which is ideal although it is in a run down part of the town. Breakfast was great and our room although small was clean and served its purpose. The staff were helpful and for the price was good value.
Stayed over for just one night. No free service to the airport, which was advertised (had to book a taxi at 5am), the toilet was leaking and the water was all over the place. The manager did not give us another room, so we had to leave it for hours (after a long day trip and with all our luggages in!) before he could fix the leakage.
We looked for an hotel to stay only one night between our visit of Algarve and Lisbon. We found this hotel, close to the train station (5 min walks) and not far from the center (15 min walks). The room is a bit old and need probably to be "refresh" but it was clean and with a reasonable size. Breakfast was good and included (maybe not a lot of choice). We found the quality/price quite good compared to the same kind of hotel we had in Lisbon. Service was rather friendly also. For a short stay, we think this address is rather good (between 3 and 4 so).
I stayed here for two nights, we arrived very late but check in was so easy. The room was clean and slept well. Good location, close to rail station etc and so much cheaper than nearby hotels. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Taxi to airport approx €11
