Stayed 2 nights in this hotel and found the rooms very small and basic walls were very thin and you could hear every noise in the room beside you and above you if you were not down early for breakfast the choice was very limited as they didn't seem to top it up and the staff didn't speak very good...

Although I had booked a single room I was allocated a twin room which along with the bathroom and the rest of the hotel was very clean.

Great hotel in an excellent location. Booked through booking.com and got a great deal. I booked a standard single and was given a nice double room for the same price. Rooms were a good size and had ac. We were there for a sports comp and it was a great base for our team

We stayed here for one night. I got a great deal through booking.com. Paid 24 euros including breakfast. My review is based on this price. I think if it was more expensive lI would rate it differently. Maybe one star less. The reception greeted us friendly. Gave us all the information we needed to know about our stay. We arrived...

Greeting was friendly and helpful. The location of the hotel is good. But the room was (much) smaller than others in the same category, and slanted, ie the bed was across the room diagonally, and therefore taking up most of the space. Things started going wrong in the morning : the ceiling in the bathroom started leaking in the shower,...

I stayed here with my partner at the end of October 2012 for one night (Saturday). We had a problem with our flight and had to stay in Faro over night. The airport tourist desk suggested here and we weren't dissapointed. The hotel is 7-8 mins walk from both the bus & train stations, in the middle of the shopping...

A very convenient location just off the top of the main pedestrian shopping street - an easy 15 minute walk from rail station, less from bus station ( where airport bus stops ). I asked for a quiet room, but was allocated overlooking the narrow, but busy rua portugal, and the traffic noise was not totally blocked out by the...

The hotel is clean, quiet (except the blooming pigeons early in the morning), the bed is large and comfortable. Staff are quite friendly and helpful. Breakfast was not quite what I expected, but I am not going to make bones about it. Happy to stay there again.

The hotel was central, close to restaurants, 5 mins from the bus and rail station (which is why we chose it). Clean and comfortable. As they were full, they upgraded us from a standard room to a superior room, it was very small so I would not like to see the "standard" room. It was a one-night stay so our...
