I got a bit lost going to the hotel and ended up walking miles after going through the centre of town although it is actually 800 metres and an 11 minute uphill walk from the Rodoviário bus station.

I got a good price of €60 through the application on my mobile phone. If I had booked on their website it would have cost €80 and even more on Booking sites.

The hotel is above the town centre and there isn't much around it and the hotel itself is dead, there's just a bar in the lobby and a breakfast room. My first impression was that it was old. You have to show your QR code with your Covid vaccinations or a PCR test upon arrival and you will have to show the same anytime you set foot in a bar or a restaurant. You need to wear a mask too but you can remove it in the street if it isn't crowded.

I had a room on the 1st floor at the back with a double bed with 2 pillows and a housekeeper brought me some extra ones. It was nice to have a small fridge under the desk. There were tiles on the floor so I was glad I'd brought some slippers with me.

There is a bathtub with a shower head in the bathroom, I would have preferred a walk-in shower, I'm not sure many people would actually bother taking a bath. There was a bidet but no individual toiletries, just a soap dispenser and a couple of bars of soap by the washbasin.

My only problem with the place apart from the location was that the Wifi was awful even when the helpful man at reception restarted the router.

The best location to stay in Faro is actually Eva Senses which is next to the port and all the excursion boats and just a few metres from the bus and train stations. There's also a new 5 star hotel in the town centre called 3HB which is the place to stay if you can afford it.

Stayed for 3 nights in January 2020 - Tamara provided exceptional service and patiently answered every typical tourist question, which was well appreciated. Room 207 had a huge comfortable king bed, very clean and faced the water so on a clear day, you could see the water and afternoon sun - just beautiful and inviting. The bathroom was large and hot water and shower pressure were both reliable after a long day of touring the town. It is a 10 minute drive from FAO airport and close enough to train station that you could walk if you wanted to. It is located just outside of the tourist old town so you can find truly local pastry shops and restaurants within 2 blocks. I would definitely stay here again.

The location is near enough to the centre to be able to walk to all the restaurants, shops, bus and train station within 15 minutes. We chose it for value and easy to take a taxi from Faro Airport. The staff were very nice and helpful. The room was reasonable and bed comfortable. Breakfast is basic (as expected) but was fresh and cost €7.50 pp. Worth paying extra €1.50 for fresh orange. The restaurant recommendations were fine as there are many places to choose from. Others we got on TA. Our favourites were Chalavar and Sabores Magia. We used Faro as a base and took the train to Tavira. Trains are cheap but not very frequent. For older people take passport as you can get 50% discount. There are lots of buses to other towns too but can be slow. There is a ferry to Deserta Island which cost €10 per person and worth doing. Not so much to see in Faro itself.

Ten / fifteen minutes from the airport by taxi 12 euros
The welcome was sooo friendly and efficient
The staff were all brilliant and spoke perfect English. Couldn’t do enough for you, you only had to ask.
A walk down to the front and restaurants took 5 minutes
Brekkie enough for the day eggs sausages muesli cereals fruit etc
We loved it and if we return to Faro we will stay here without doubt

This Hotel just surprises me each time I stay here.It just keeps improving. I have been coming here for years and from the beginning I was always delighted with my experience. There is so much to recommend this Hotel, my room was perfect and the attention to detail because of the Corona Virus was exceptional. Wonderful shower room, tea and coffee making facilities, big comfy bed and I stayed in a suite which had a balcony. May I add for the price of the accommodation I stayed in, it was incredible value. Of course the staff are so kind, helpful and welcoming, it makes this hotel another reason I keep returning.

We as an couple stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. It is Portugal's only Best Western Hotel. :) They have private parking. An outside seating area(patio) where one can smoke, sit outside and just chill. We were wamly welcomed. We stayed here Christmas eve and day as well. The room was big and clean. We had no balcony but a view of a little local church across the street. The staff felt like family....all of them during these Corona times at a high peak such as Christmas. Alexandria and Daniel and a few more provided us with so much information about Faro and Portugal and the people of Portugal and all the thing we should see. They spoke excellent english. Just ask, they will guide you in the right direction re tips etc. We put up the do not disturb sign and yet they were so willing to make sure we had what we wanted over the holidays. Rooms are cleaned daily. The internet speed too was impressive. Handicap friendly! The location of this hotel was quiet. Not in the middle of the city but close enough. We had originally booked 1 night and ended up booking 2 other nights as we felt comfortable and relaxing. Thank you to you all. Hope you have a Beautiful 2022. We Will be back!!! RECOMMENDED!!!

Recently refurbished three star property with a four star level of service. While the rooms are small, they are fully equipped and the bathrooms are sparkingly clean. Great air conditioning and good linen and towels. Good shower but sadly with captive liquid soap.

Breakfast is the only meal offered but is extremely good even though there are only two hot dishes for us Northern Europeans. Fresh orange juice (whch is wonderful) is available for a small supplement. Given the fact that there's terrific restuarnt across the road (Gimbres by Oleg), the absnce of full meals provision is not noticed.

There's s nice lobby bar.

This place is a jewel in faro, although when visiting the area dont be put off with the graffiti (and there is a lot) when you get to this hotel you will be more than satisfied the staff are amazing and so helpful even the cleaners say hello with a smile. The place is well decorated with a Portuguese twist, it is clean and welcoming. It is situated about 15 mins walk from marina, train station and centre of old town. We stayed in room 509 and the view of the seafront and the sunsets & rises were incredible..

If you want to be right in the action of Faro centre then this isn't the hotel for you. It's about a 10 minute walk to the harbourside and, like a lot of Faro, the area could do with a refresh. For us however it was a great choice - it meant that if we drove somewhere for a day trip we didn't have to drive through most of the town to get on the motorway and we don't mind the 10 minutes walk.
There is limited parking behind the hotel, 6 bays I think, but you then have to reverse down the road as it is a dead end so I wouldn't fancy it in a big car! Check in was pleasant, our room was a good size and quiet and had plenty of power sockets for a change! Internet performance was mixed, it was quick but regularly disconnected for 30 seconds or so. Breakfast was excellent with lots of choice, staff were friendly, the room was clean and quiet and the price was good.

We stayed here for one night after arriving at Faro airport. The hotel is in a very convenient location, a 10 minute drive from the airport, and 10 minute walk to town and a 15 minute walk to the train station. The facilities are basic, but perfect for a short stay, including breakfast in the downstairs restaurant. The highlight of out stay though was Alexandra, who welcomed us to the hotel, checked us, gave us a map and talked us through some recommendations for sites to see and places to eat for out 24 hour visit. She was so friendly and helpful and made our stay so wonderful!
