I would totally recommend this hotel for anyone who is looking to have a good holiday on a fairly small budget. The prices are great for what you get I personally think. We have stayed here twice now, mainly due to the very friendly staff and the great location of the hotel. It's only about a 5 minute walk into... More

We spent 4 nights at the Vila Branca and were very pleased. The room was very clean and had a view of both the ocean and the Old Town. The balcony had a lounger, a small table and two chairs. Perfect for having breakfast and a beer in the evening. There was a very small fridge, safe, satellite TV, AC... More

We spent 7 nights at Vila Branca and I must say that I was happily surprised, as we had booked the room for a very reasonable price and the reviews on tripadvisor were sometimes very different. We had a double room ensuite with small balcony, refrigerator, satellite TV (many channels in English), air conditioning: the room was spacious enough and... More

The room was small but bright and clean and with a little balcony. The shower was poor as the nozzle could not be adjusted so the water poured out just like a hose! Also there was a sign in the bathroom asking that paper is not flushed down the toilet. There was a small fridge in the room but it... More

The hotel is located in the centre of Albufeira and is very near to the beaches, bars and restaurants! It´s location is great but hotel rooms are very small, furniture is quite old and bathroom may not be as clean as you could wait from it. Breakfast is very basic and does not contain any fruits or vegetables. If you... More

Overall the hotel is good. The rooms are clean, service is good and the location is perfect. However Dont be misled by previous reviews. You CANNOT use the pool next door at Casa Mitchel, even though it owned by the same people.

We stayed one night for around £23 including breakfast, free wifi internet in a smallish room with two twin beds pushed together. It has air con and a fridge with a reasonable bathroom with a shower over a very small bath. The hotel is close to The Old Town. The receptionist was very friendly and helpful. She changed breakfast from... More
