The hostel was nice for one night, and the location is perfect. But it seems quite expensive for the confort and the quality of the room.

A centrally located hotel with free internet access in lounge area. Room was pleasant but bathroom was like an obstacle course. The place had some general noise during the day from outside which is to be expected but after dark and through the night it became like a bizarre nightmare in the streets outside. Clubbers and drunks howling, shouting, singing.... More

Right in the middle of the town, easy to walk everywhere (even from the train station). The room was simple and just 4 channels on the TV, but ok for an overnight. The taxi to the airport takes 2 minutes to arrive at the hotel and around 10 minutes to get to the airport.

Really lovely place, you couldnt beat the location (and price) - its just in the centre with cafes, restaurants and shops, short walk from the marine, "old town" and bus/train station. However it is not located directly on the main street so no tourists walking under the window. Its very safe place especially for solo travellers. My room and bathroom... More

Stayed in this hotel for three nights on a business trip to Southern Portugal and other parts of Iberian Peninsula in September 2010. I paid 37 euros a night for a single room (got a large double room for myself only), breakfast excluded. The room was ready for me even in the arrival morning, after a request sent when making...

The rooms are spacious, beds are comfy and clean, the people only speak portuguese but will do all they can to be understood, lots of smiles, laughter and good humour. Ideally placed for water front cafes and super restaurants (try the Versailles) - we spent a marvellous time and will be back for next year's Faro bike rally.

This Pensao is standard for Faro, it has average prices, average rooms. No breakfast is included. The receptionist is not well organized. We asked him to book a taxi for us to leave at 7am. We went to the reception only to find him not there, a few moments later we heard a alarm ring, shortly after the receptionist arrived... More

Residencial Oceano offered us a good, spacious room with clean bathroom. As our room was located with a window to a yard, we did not hear the street noise. Still, there were some conditioning systems or something like that there which made some noise, but it was more bearable that the usual street noise would have had. So this is... More

The oceano is in a perfect location, just 5 mins walk from the train/bus terminals and very easy to find. It's moments from the marina and old town shops and restaurants. Staff were friendly and the room was clean and functional. Only problem was that the smell of the cleaning chemicals was a little overwhelming until I got all the... More

I stayed in this hotel with a friend as a stopover for one night only. The lady at the reception desk has been really gentle and kind. The hotel itself is quite aged, but they keep it very clean and do their best to provide a good service. Our private bathroom was OK, we had AC working fine and the... More
