“good holiday within budget”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2012

The staff were very child friendly helpful and kind with good english. Rooms were small for us and sleeping with two little ones in a small double room was interesting. not much room for bags and us! only shower which was ok but would have liked a bath with kids, there were bigger rooms with a bath at this hotel but not for the dates we needed or for the price we wanted to spend as we were on a budget. very good location but in a rundown area but was interesting to live in the old quarter and walking into the center very easy. beach is a 20min bus ride from just outside hotel so was OK. good for a few nights and go to other locations in the country as was close to the bus station. Don't each in restaurants at the beach as rip off costs, take food or ask for menu first do not assume as we did that the price in the centre of the town would be the same. bread on the table with a few olives was about 9 euro and little portion of chips for the kits were 6 euro each!!!! Also keep an eye on your wallets as were had ours taken in the shopping supermarket and could not pay for our shopping!!! but were still managed to get a tan and enjoy the break, would have been better to leave the kids at home for a real relaxing time ;-))

Some of the staff were fantastic while others were rude and it was too much to help you.
There are a few dogs in this area roaming the streets and I was attacked on the way to the railway station one morning, by two, made me nervous to go to the bus or railway station.
Due to the stone floors it was very noisy, people arriving early or late with suitcases on wheels.. Take ear plugs you will need them.
I picked this Hotel due to good rating on how clean it was, my bathroom and shower was not so clean.
There was also a mix up booking with easy to book and I ended up paying a lot more for the room,.
Good Breakfast and good deal on lunches.

This is an excellent example of a 3 star hotel - good basic rooms at a very reasonable price. The location is an easy walk from the train station and to the marina and historic town centre. Breakfast room next to sunny courtyard is very pleasant but I would highly recommend having lunch in the little cafe attached to the hotel - good honest food for €4.50 for 3 courses plus wine and coffee.You cant go wrong with that!

We spent 2 nights at Hotel Sol Algarve in late November. Its location was very convenient. Walking distance from the train and bus stations and the center of town. Its staff was friendly and professional. Unfortunately, those were the only positives about the place. We don't know about the state of the other rooms, but our room smelled musty, the bed was uncomfortable (it felt damp), the bedspread stained, and the breakfast truly bare bones. Even the bread they served was not fresh. We paid 45 euros a night, which admittedly was inexpensive, even off season. However, had we anticipated what we'd find, we would gladly have paid 20 euros more a night (which was the price of the other hotels we stayed at in Portugal) for decent quarters in Faro. We think there was a roof leak that caused the problem in the room we stayed in. That room needs new paint, a new mattress, new curtains and bedspread. The hotel should also upgrade its breakfast menu. Because of its location, it could be a pleasant place to stay in Faro

Offering friendly advice and close to transport links this is a perfect overnight stop for travellers visiting the Algarve or Faro itself.

This hotel is in an excellent central location. The rooms are very comfortable and really clean. The staff are all so helpful and friendly. Nothing is too much bother. Cindy, the manageress, is always there to make sure guests are happy. She is always prepared to go the extra mile. The breakfast is very nice and the breakfast room is bright and cheerful. The hotel serves a really cheap lunch and drinks are very reasonable. The standard of cleanliness throughout the hotel is excellent. Would recommend a stay there.

Room Tip: The rooms are very comfortable and spacious.
