If you arrive in Faro by train, the Hotel Eva and its surroundings may look a bit dodgy. There is a bunch of cheap hostels on the way, a bus station in the back of the building and sometimes a cast of characters hanging around. Don´t let that fool you. Closer to the hotel it´s completely different, there are some nice restaurants and cafes on the left side of Avenida da Republica and the hotel which is on the right has an elegant, clean and white lobby and the best location in Faro, overlooking the marina, main square, old town and Ria Formosa Natural Park from the harbour facing rooms. In addition, you also get good views of planes about to land at Faro airport. Yes, you will hear them too but I don´t think that can be avoided anywhere in Faro as the airport is close by and planes fly right over the city.
Beds are comfortable, there´s wifi and movie channels on TV, one of the better breakfasts for a 4* hotel with good selection of meat, cheese, fruit, and a large rooftop pool. We also tried the restaurant for an evening meal and can only recommend it, fish was excellently prepared, desserts worth trying too, and the view from the rooftop terrace is not to be missed.
