Visiting Albufeira first time it was a chance booking a place to stay. Selected from budget at good location we were satisfied. Breakfast is not much to bother about but should easily be improved at low cost. Personnel very friendly and supportive. Somewhat noisy and you can overhear a lot from neighboring rooms. Our room was clean and in decent... More

Room was quite basic no breakfast included but free parking and good views as on a hill not far from central areas but needed a car as too far to walk The staff were very helpful and tea coffee and beers were available in the bar. Good for travellers..

This hotel is a 2 star and that's about what you get. The rooms are clean and comfortable. However there is only 2 plugs and both are used by the fridge and TV, so if you want a plug you need to sacrifice one of those. We chose the TV as I don't think it would have had any English... More

Lovely little hotel. Very very basic and could do with a little update but for the price we paid it was perfect. Wouldn't recommend for anyone that isn't very mobile (i'm 23 and relatively active and even i was out of breath on the way back up the hill from the beach/old town) and the bar was pretty rubbish so...

These things were supplied as soon as we asked but we snljkdnt have had to request them. We poped into the bar for a night cap ...needn't have bothered... More

The hotel is at the top of a steep hill, but quite central to the Old town of Albufeira, I found the staff friendly, the room clean and adequate for a one night stay, it had TV local channels and a fridge which was nice as many higher grade hotels do not offer this facility. We had views overlooking the... More

Do not get excited about the pool, it is tiny and quite frankly I do not think it has been cleaned since last year. Rooms are very very basic and outdated, but it is good 5 minutes down the hill from the town and beach.
