Residencial Madalena Boarding House Pension
Ranked #22 of 27 Faro B&B and Inns
Reviewed December 29, 2010

I would highly recommend Residencial Madalena in Faro Portugal. It is like a hotel so don't get confused with the name. We went there in December, not really high season, maybe that's why it was quiet on the street at night, as we previously read it might not be. However, the place is a 3 storey old building, renovated, with nice 2, 3, 4 bed rooms with bathrooms. Although, bathrooms are slightly tiny and they look really old. Nevertheless, receptionists speak english pretty good. The breakfast is included, however we missed it so it's hard to have our opinion on it. The place is really close to everything, bus/rail station, marina, bars, cafes, clubs, all are no more than 5 mins walk. Beach is 20 mins away by bus, national park tours from the marina every day. Recommended for a stay in winter, as it's really cheap then; can't say about summer but I think it's 3 times more that expensive (from the price list in the reception) and much louder at night (other opinions).

The Residencial Madalena is a simple, basic pension. However, it has all necessary for you to sleep with security. There is TV in the rooms, Internet and parking free in the street. The pension is located in the old part of the city, where it has old building, but next downtown and shoppings. A place for whom gives value to its money and does not want amenities, but it is in Faro, the best city of Algarve !

But it was almost most expensive as well. We paid 60 EUR for one night for 3 persons. And what do we get: almost sleepless night because of bar which is next to this hotel and music there is playing till 2 am. When the music finally stopped playing, we couldn't sleep in case of various noise inside the hotel and outside as well. People are walking, screaming in the street and it was impossible to sleep there. Remote TV controller was not working, bathroom was not clean enough too. It is sad to recognize that this hotel was one of our worst choises during our trip in Portugal.

We vere staying in this hotel for one night in May and I wouldn't reccomend it: the location is central, but it's not the nice part of the city - there are abandoned building just next to the hotel, the buildings on the street are not renovated. Near to the hotel is very noisy bar - it wasn't possible to sleep at night!!! As well as because of the cars and motos, all the time, passing by! The acoustics was very good - we could here everything happening in the corridor! The rooms are small and dark, we had a room with the window to the back yard - not nice at all. The rooms are relatively clean, but the furniture is very old and very shabby, bathroom gives an impression something made 20 years ago. The staff was helpful. I wouldn't reccomend this place - only for persons who just need to spend one night before going to the airport - but never for a romantic vacation!
