Good location, polite reception, good value for money. Sleep quality not good as you can hear everyone outside your door - proper fire door needed. When we stayed the lift was out of use and since everyone was using the stairs you could hear the door slamming every couple of minutes. The shower was horrendous it had mould everywhere and was really unpleasant to use.

Excellent hotel, great location, and friendly staff. The room was very clean and comfortable. The hotel is located just minutes from the old town and several places of interest. I would definitely return to this hotel.

Ibis style hotel in the city centre. Handy for shops, restaurants and the marina. Friendly, efficient service. Cafe over the road does a cheap breakfast. 10 minutes from the airport (12 Euros in a taxi ).

Since in course of our 2-week-tour around the country we stayed with six hotels incl. this one I could clearly state the benefits and disadvantages of each one. This hotel's strong sides are: 1) its location (in the very centre of Faro) - from where without problems and within minutes you are to achieve the old center, the embankment and good restaurants with cafes; and at the same time it's possible to find a place for parking your car close to your living space; 2) space dedicated to have breakfast (you are to be ready in advance that in Portugal in 95% of all hotels the eating area is very-very small :( - it's like in beautiful hotels in Prague with one clear difference... - there the number of rooms could be just 6-10; and in Portugal - 4-5-fold of that); 3) Wi-Fi functions less or more reliably. And factually the list of benefits is exhaustive; all the rest concerning this "Stay"... is awful.... · The cleanness of common spaces and corridors is very arguable. The carpeting and floor-mates are so old and dirty as if you were travelling by some time-machine... The towels are not white but definitely grey and so thin that seem to signal to operations management many years!!! ago - it's high time to change us... The personnel is so lazy and slow that you are to be afraid of disturbing their sleeping on the way... - just to receive the salt asked you are to remind them twice of your request... You are not to have any variability or variety in course of your breakfasts - even the smallest breakfast in Greece would be three times as bigger as in this hotel (an do not expect breakfasts like in Spain, or, at least in Germany - forget about that from the very beginning :))... And even if to compare with their colleagues from Stay, Coimbra... even this internal competition to be lost by these counterparts... Only one thing that could improve your impressions - you are reliably to taste and try - immediately across the street, in front of your central gateway you could see the bakery where you could find a very good apple tartlet with cinnamon :)... And finishing your two-week vacations (if you have an opportunity also to live, for example, in Lisboa Legendary Suites, Dom Dinis Marvao and Porto Coliseum) you are to understand that at the same rates!!! you would be able to really enjoy comfort, service and towels and not just factually to "stay" somewhere for your money.
