Lovely little guesthouse very well located in the centre of Faro, close to the popular eateries and the walls of the Old Town. The rooms are very basic but comfortable, the air-con is brilliant, the beds are comfortable. The bathroom is quite small and there is no ventilation so it gets smelly quite quickly. Staff were lovely and we could... More

Great location and value for money ! But our stuff (clothes) were stolen from our bags in our absence. We went and complained at the Reception Desk and the lady was very aggressive, which made it so evident that it was an inside job! So either take your belongings with u when going out or make sure you have a... More

Stayed here recently as needed to be near to Faro hospital. I found the location and staff to be excellent. It is a room only offering so people downgrading the accommodation should pay more and not expect more than what is clearly offered. The room was very clean and I would definitely return.

This charming, family run pension is centrally located, close to the bus station and the marina. Numerous cafes, restaurants, and shops are all within walking distance. There really is a great deal to see and do in the historic old town of Faro! The rooms are small, clean, and simply decorated, but most have flat screen tv and private bath.... More

Residencial A Doca has a good location, friendly, helpful staff. Quiet, comfortable and clean room. Good access to the old town. Good value for money. Air con was effective. Poor WiFi. Good base but not somewhere to spend a lot of time.

I kept my key, went to the beach. When back half of my money was missing, 150 euros. Already the previous money I had a doubt that some money was gone. Management says they not responsible. The door was locked, window was closed, room on the second floor. It sounds like an "inside" job. As I wasn't feeling safe anymore... More

The staff is really nice and helpful and the room was clean but the building is quite old. There was no shampoo just two little soaps. The wifi is not working properly. The hotel is really close to the old centre. I would say that for one night it is ok probably it suits the price you pay but if... More

We arrived at the airport, got the local bus (16) and easily found A Doca close by. Our room and bathroom were immaculately clean. The rooms have everything you need but no luxuries but for the price it was very good value. The location was good for seeing Faro and catching local transport to nearby areas. The air con great...

The hostel was nice for one night, and the location is perfect. But it seems quite expensive for the confort and the quality of the room.
