For the price you pay, I found this quite a decent hotel. For us, it was conveniently located (close to Faro's train station), but the neighbourhood isn't the nicest of all. The city centre is just a few minutes on foot though. The guest house is a little bit noisy (thin walls and thin doors, so you can hear literally... More

I stayed a couple of nights on a business trip. I have to admit for the price, I was a bit wary but there was no need at all! Apart from nearly killing myself dragging 2 overweight suitcases up the stairs (I'm away all Summer!) everything was great. The staff are friendly, the room is clean and the wifi is... More

From the photo on the advertisement and the price, our room was not as big as we expected and compared to other accommodation in other places, did not rate as well contrary to what other travellers have said. The bathroom is tiny and anyone who is overweight would have trouble getting in there and moving around. The accommodation is quite... More

Stayed 3 nights from 20/4/15 and then 20/4/15. Booking via Hotelopia had not reached hotel and no room was immediately available. Owner Joao Paulo spent upwards of 45 minutes trying to find a suitable local alternative without success. Luckily a late cancellation saved the day. The helpfulness and hospitality displayed by Joao Paulo, who had nothing obvious to gain from... More

Amazing room, got it dead cheap, really quiet, 247 reception, great Free Wifi reception, good location, toilet could have been a little more clean as the shower didn't work so had to use Tap! Shops and Cafes were also nearby as Faro it self is not a big City, if u want a quiet break in a fishing Village? Faro... More

Staff was friendly and room was okay. We were kind of outside of the main building and on the balcony. It was like a portable family 3-4 persons room they added in afterwards. It was basic but good enough for a night. We had an early flight anyways. Wifi did not work! It was a bit better in the lobby... More

I stayed at the guesthouse for 13 nights (in two separate occasions. The room was very nice (room 4) with AC (good in June), a TV, also the bathroom was smal but very confortable. Room was cleaned daily. The only caveat was that, for me, the bed was kind of hard. You also have WiFi on the room. The guesthouse... More

The guest house is certainly worth the price. The steep staircase leads to the narrow quirky painted corridor with lots of rooms. There is a place on the roof to eat and walk. We had a room for three on the roof for price for two.
