1. I had requested a quiet rear room - what I got what the only room (out of ten), which was to the front, although the guest house was not fully booked. Couldn't sleep at all since all night traffic in front of the window. 2. In the description they promised tea or coffee making facility in the room -... More

This accommodation is absolutely basic. It's ideal for a Base and even better if there are 2/3 people. I was on my own, so I feel it was a little expensive. That said, it was great for getting to the train station

All sites of Faro city are on foot scope. The reception on duty for 24 hours, also they can provide simpe city map. There are several small restaurants around... More

The room was merticulously clean and comfortable, if somewhat small. I would highly recommend this to any couple. There was a member of staff on the reception to let you in if you are out late. Lovely designs in the property which brightens the whole place!!

For the price you pay, I found this quite a decent hotel. For us, it was conveniently located (close to Faro's train station), but the neighbourhood isn't the nicest of all. The city centre is just a few minutes on foot though. The guest house is a little bit noisy (thin walls and thin doors, so you can hear literally... More

I stayed a couple of nights on a business trip. I have to admit for the price, I was a bit wary but there was no need at all! Apart from nearly killing myself dragging 2 overweight suitcases up the stairs (I'm away all Summer!) everything was great. The staff are friendly, the room is clean and the wifi is... More

From the photo on the advertisement and the price, our room was not as big as we expected and compared to other accommodation in other places, did not rate as well contrary to what other travellers have said. The bathroom is tiny and anyone who is overweight would have trouble getting in there and moving around. The accommodation is quite... More

Stayed 3 nights from 20/4/15 and then 20/4/15. Booking via Hotelopia had not reached hotel and no room was immediately available. Owner Joao Paulo spent upwards of 45 minutes trying to find a suitable local alternative without success. Luckily a late cancellation saved the day. The helpfulness and hospitality displayed by Joao Paulo, who had nothing obvious to gain from... More

Amazing room, got it dead cheap, really quiet, 247 reception, great Free Wifi reception, good location, toilet could have been a little more clean as the shower didn't work so had to use Tap!
