I've never seen the point of paying a vast premium for a luxury hotel when you can pay half the price for just as comfortable a sleep, just without the chocolates on your pillow. If you're like me, you'll be happy with the Guest House Sao Filipe. The rooms are small (especially the bathrooms), and I didn't have a view to speak of, but since I was only there for a few hours a day, I didn't care. The main thing is that they were clean, quiet, and comfortable.
The staff was wonderfully helpful when it came to where to shop or where to eat. Like another reviewer, I had the room right next to reception but had no issues with noise.
The location is just a couple of blocks from the train station, an easy trip even if you're hauling luggage. There's a coffee shop right on the corner that serves a wonderful breakfast (a staff recommendation), and one of the best restaurants in the Algarve right around the corner (another staff recommendation). And most of the Faro attractions are within easy walking distance as well.
