The location for this hotel is amazing! Right in the middle of downtown, where all the action is. That is, next to the restaurants and shopping area, not next to the clubs area, so I had no problem with noise (I never go to bed before midnight, and by that point it was quiet). There are good cheap restaurants right... More

Two nights at Albufeirense have been certainly the largest disappointment of our Portuguese holiday. The hotel itself is quite ok and the location might seem great on the first glance, but... you simply cannot sleep at night. The street below works as amplifier, which makes the outside noise almost unbearable. If you're light sleeper, be prepared for being awake at... More

Just back from a week in Pensao Albufeirense in a double room for my own use. It's in a great position just off the square. It's probably not for people who like to get to bed by 10PM given the noise from the square and Bar Street but it suited me fine. The room was small but satisfactory & had... More
