Great hotel for the price. Central location, cheap, clean, big rooms and friendly staff. Only two negative things. The room was too cold and it was humid. The bed was very good to sleep on by the way.

We stayed in Faro for 4 nights throughout the week. Approximately a 15 minute taxi drive from the airport to the hotel. The hotel and our room was clean and had a safe for goods and a small balcony too. Room and bathroom were spacious, with A/C that worked well. Breakfast didn't have an overly large selection, but what was...

Well located in the centre of Faro close to the shops and within waking distance to the seafront. A nice little hotel for the price. It was fairly noisy at night, with dogs in the neighbourhood and pigeons on the balcony but not really an issue.

This was our first visit to Faro and the first time in a Stay Hotel - we enjoyed both. The hotel was spotless, staff very helpful and the room spacious and comfortable. Location is excellent - it is right beside the main shopping area, with lots of bars and restaurants, and the Marina and Old Town are just a short...

We just spent a week at this hotel and it was very good. Everything looks rather new, the staff was very friendly and welcoming. We had a nice room in the back (408) which was cleaned every day. Breakfast was great, good choice in breads, spreads and fresh fruit. One minus: why put a MAC computer in the general area...

Hotel is quite central and is within short walking distances of most tourist spots. The room is comfortable, but only has one spare pillow which is strange as it's a room for two people. They have a kettle with tea bags, but no milk. The hotel staff came to clean the room, but for both days we had the sign...

We had the breakfast included which was a good european style,...

Greeted by welcoming, friendly and helpful staff. Checking-in was effortless, and staff were happy to resolve any issues with our booking. Hotel facilities were clean, fresh linen and towels daily. Breakfast selection was optional, but we didn't use this service. Comfy bed and pillows, minimal noise from outside (occasional airplane/street etc) but otherwise seamless sleep. Great location within Faro (literally...

My friend and I stayed here for three nights. The location is excellent - right in the middle of the city, a short walk from many attractions and the beach. There's a free car park at Largo Sao Sebastian, about a 10-15-minute walk away (though there are often people around the car park who "help" you find a space and...
