Abbiamo soggiornato per una notte. Gentilezza e disponibilità. Ci sono quattro stanze e due bagni condivisi. Terrazzino molto carino. Piuttosto pulito. Posizione comodissima per il centro e anche per la stazione.

When looking for accommodation we were looking for the cheapest, truth be told. Cosy guesthouse looked spot on at first glance, and further research (location, google maps, street view, etc) as well as our arrival confirmed we'd struck gold. You're given a code to enter (we got there at 12am after a late flight) and our key was waiting in the door. It might feel odd with no reception, but it adds to the experience (you feel at home more) and Francisco - the owner - is more than happy to reply to any whatsapp messages. Our room (2) was big enough. With 2 single beds pushed together for a double. Comfortable and clean, with a open wardrobe, table, lamp and coat stand. The shared amenities were clean enough. With a shower and toilet downstairs and an even bigger shower upstairs if you were unable to grab the downstairs shower. That said - it wasn't busy as only 4 rooms were located in the house. Upstairs had an open roof terrace which was perfect to lounge on or have breakfast. It provided a nice view of the backstreets of Faro and was spacious enough. The kitchen was spot on - tidy and had everything you need. We opted to store food for brekkie/snacks etc and the only downside was that we were clearly sharing our stay with food thieves. Slightly annoying but the hotel doesn't pick its guests! As for location - it's right next to the church of bones and next to that is a supermarket. At least a 5 minute walk to both. It's also a 10 minute walk to the bus station, Football stadium and to Faro Old Town. It's location is perfect. You get to see a bit of the backstreets of Faro whilst also being a stones throw away from the rest. As for the neighbourhood - it's fine. Of course it may look a bit on the dirty side due to the buildings and graffitti but check out the rest of Faro and you;ll see more of the same, in fact it's always off the beaten track where you find most of the interesting things.

Situation géographique parfaite. A 2 pas du centre et des transports (bus train..) . Les chambres en rez de chaussée sont sombres donc demandez les chambres au 1er etage. La literie est très confortable. La cuisine n est pas pratique . Difficile de s assoir pour y déjeuner ou dîner mais pour le petit dejeuner c est parfait. Le ménage est fait tous les jours dans les parties communes. L ensemble est propre. Les fenêtres semblent être en plastique et non isolées donc les chambres côté rue bruyantes quand les voitures passent mais en fevrier pas beaucoup de voitures!

The place was a good price per night No manned reception .just given a code Although room 1 is smaller than room 2 It’s clean & bright & On the ground floor Shared bath room between only these 2 bedrooms Really comfy bed Worth noting Not the best area to walk about at night WHAT PUT ME OFF I was emailed by Francisco early in the day to ask what time we would arrive & he would send the CODE so we could get in. ......I said 3 pm We arrived 3 oc and still had no code since 10am I phoned number on the door & Francisco’s mobile several times No answer..... Although shattered we went for a coffee in the city Francisco then phoned me But would not give me the code over the phone He said he’d send it to my phone 1 & a half hours after arriving I phoned again Costing me money I said we haven’t got the needed code I said just tell me over the phone which he finally did A cursory apology doesn’t cut it when you are waiting to get in to an unmanned place No idea when & evening is approaching There is too much good competition To give such bad service

冬のオフシーズンだからかもしれませんが、お安い値段で個室に泊まれて助かりました。 共有バスルームですが、部屋が4つしかなく、バスルームは2つあり、2部屋で1つをシェアする形なので、かぶったとしてもそれほど待ちはなく済むかと思います。 私は2階のシングルルームに泊まりました。部屋の中は最低限のものしかないですが、キッチンが使えるので意外と便利かと思います。ちなみに2階のバスルームの方が広々しています。部屋の鍵がコツが必要で、毎回時間がかかってしまいました。 チェックインの時間前に到着でしたが、部屋の用意ができていたので、早めに入れてもらえました。入口のコードをメールで教えてもらって入ったので、滞在中誰とも会っていません。メール連絡が直前と言いますか、「明日何時到着か教えてください」「明日は何時に部屋をでますか?」というメールが夜中に来たりして、明日というよりもう当日…という感じでした。ネットが繋がるところにいたので別に平気でしたが、もうちょっと早いと嬉しいかな。
