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 Rooms are very very basic and outdated, but it is good 5 minutes down the hill from the town and beach.

Just got back from staying here for 8 nights. Prior to arrival I asked for a room with easy access and a balcony for fresh air. Upon arrival we were told that the only room left was 101, two floors down but with doors that lead straight into the pool area. Unfortunately our only view was a derelict building next... More

I booked this place super cheap so I had very low expectations, sure enough the furniture was old and outdated, broken here and there and the carpet was stained and worn out which would be fine for the price however there is no excuse for a very dirty bathtub and un-hoovered carpet on my arrival. Bed linen didn't feel clean... More
