We only stayed one night. Very good value for the money we paid. The breakfast was good, more then adequate. The hotel is central to restaurants and the Marina. Ana Sena the receptionist was absolutely fantastic. A lovely caring human being, other hotel reception staff could take a few lessons from her on friendliness and helfpfulness. Would definitely stay here... More

I was in room 111, I don't know if the other rooms are the same but it was pretty small and the bed and pillows were very very uncomfortable. Could not sleep at all. The room was pretty clean And the hotel has a good location and the staff is nice. So so.

Stayed here recently with my partner for 3 nights at the end of a 9 day break in Portugal. It's ideally located, only a couple of minutes stroll from the harbour right and on the edge of the old town handy for the shops, bars etc. The hotel was spotlessly clean, breakfast was plentiful and service received from all staff...

The staff were very helpful showing us places of interest and sorting out our a/c very quickly. The room was a good size, had wi-fi and a balcony overlooking the road. Breakfast was... More

Had a one-night stay. Clean, comfortable, and large balcony. Wifi on the 5th floor was weak, but the breakfast was delicious, easily the highlight of the hotel. It is located centrally and directions from Google maps were direct and correct.

We stayed 2 nights with our small children. Location is perfect as the tourist spots are right next to the hotel. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The service was kind and helpful. I would stay here again and would recommend it to friends.

I spent one night at the hotel and I liked the room, though it was tiny. Breakfast was nice and the location is great. Very close to the sites and the shopping area. The service at the hotel was very nice, kind and helpful.
