Hotel is in a great location close to cafes, restaurants, shopping and marina. Fifth floor room, with terrace, was a good size and had a VERY comfortable proper double bed, not two singles pushed together. Shower needs a grab bar for safety. Breakfast could easily be much better with more cereal and dried fruit but did have a proper espresso... More

For our purposes, off season, the location, closer to downtown, was ideal. From there it is easy to walk anywhere in the city. Our room was on the fifth floor and we had an excellent view of...the roofs of other buildings, which was not that bad considering that some of them were interesting and reflected nicely the sun rays. I... More

We stayed in the Stay Hotel Faro Centro with some friends recently. When we arrived the receptionist asked for payment up front - we duly obliged as we had been able to enter our rooms before 12 noon. It was only when we checked our receipts that we were charged 110 Euros instead of 78 Euros. We went straight to... More

Hotel is now called Stay Hotel. Some upgrading has been done e.g new bathroom fittings but bed headboards still say HSM. Hotel is clean, comfortable and quiet. Location is great close to the centre and beside the main pedestrian shopping street. Breakfast is €6.00 and is good value. Fresh rolls and pastries, squeeze your own orange juice and a netspresso...

Excellent location, new rooms, friendly helpful staff, what more could you want. Room rates are well worth staying here, breakfast is perfectly acceptable (cereals, meats, cheese, breads & pastries) Had no probs staying here for 4 nights and staff were extremely accommodating when our travel plans changed.

This hotel is very reasonable, €55 for a double room in early September. It is perfectly adequate for an overnight stay if you have a late or early flight into Faro. Being in the centre of town there are lots of restaurants nearby and if you have time to wander around the centre of Faro it is very pleasant. It... More
