I know that this is probably one of the better hotels for the money in Faro, and the location is a perfect base for exploring the city. The decor is also high quality and minimal, but it was very expensive and my room was depressing, cheerless and dull. Plastic cups by the kettle, no fridge and a view of the... More

Allowed to check in early as on a business trip although ended up with a lower spec room than paid for i didn't mind due to allowing me to check in early. Location was good - right in the centre. Bizarrely the hotel offers no local maps of the area... Requested it a couple of times and told they don't... More

Clean and basic hotel. Friendly staff. Most of them speak english Definitely not sound-proof rooms. Could hear doors opening and closing at night and voices in the corridor. Quite pricely for a 3 star hotel.................

Great Location if you want to see the city. Liked the attention to detail in the design ie bathroom mirror was shaped to the logo but I am afraid that's where the attention stopped. Check in was extremely slow, take the stairs you will wait ages for the lift. We had 2 rooms booked one was small, other was much... More

The hotel is in a great location, just a few minutes walk from the city centre. However this didn't make up for the grumpy receptionist, the room smelling strongly of smoke, a leaking shower and faulty air conditioning. I wouldn't recommend the hotel or stay again, definitely not worth the price I paid.

Expensive price for a lackluster room. Woman at reception extremely rude and arrogant. Booked a non smoking room yet the room absolutely stank of cigarettes. Ac machine was pathetically broken and room was dirty on entry. Only thing that warranted the 2 stars was the friendly male check in host in the morning who helped very much.

Family of four with two teens flying into Faro. Stayed two nights but wish we had taken another two. No frills but perfect for those of us on a budget or not looking for five star services at a two star price! Very good value and breakfast was much better than I had expected (other reviews). We were well pleased... More

For the price, it would be difficult to beat this hotel. Rooms are functional and clean, air con works well and it was quiet and in a good location. However, my safe didn't work the whole time I was there, this was reported 3 times and the staff basically weren't bothered. Cleaners entered my room despite a sign being on... More

The service from the staff was very good, also the staff as prepared the long lasting breakfast did extra service to our requests. The room was clean and we had also a good bed. But the bathtub could only be used for showers. The breakfast had very few choices, but lasted until 1230 as was practical. The hotel is not... More
