Hotel Sol Algarve
Ranked #10 of 28 Hotels in Faro
Reviewed July 26, 2012

The Hotel is simple, but very nicey located in the center of Faro. The breakfast terrace is very beautiful and it has all that is needed.

Faro itself is a lovely city with not that much to do, really recommendable is to take a boat to the islands in front of Faro ( Ilha Desserta for example).

Our room was not very big, but ok if you stay the whole day outside. Bathroom was clean.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with private balcony (they are not more expensive)

Started off a bit poorly, being placed in an extremely smelly smoker's room despite being asked if i smoked, so obviously moved out of there. Then the wi-fi didn't work so I helped them fix it!
Everything was sorted out but it's not setting the world alight. Location-wise its a short trek south to the main sights in Faro, I ended up wishing I'd found somewhere closer to the old town though. The beds were ok and the street it fronts onto is extremely noisy from about 6.30-7am, quite a popular thoroughfare. Major positive would be the spotless bathroom and the cheerful staff.

Stayed here for one night before heading off to Lisbon the following day. We chose it because it was a two minute walk to the train and bus station. Room was basic but clean and had a (very) small balcony overlooking the street. Also had a hairdryer. The centre of town was a short walk away. Reception staff friendly and efficient. Breakfast was what you would expect for a 2 star hotel, but we were allowed to eat early as our train was at 7am. Some hotels won't let you do this. Espresso coffee was 55 cents extra. There is also a small coutyard with tables so you can eat al fresco. Would stay here again.

Room Tip: A room overlooking the internal courtyard might be quieter.

We stayed here for one night after landing in Lisbon, and taking the bus down to Faro. The hotel is close to the bus station which was great. A little tricky to find, but that's the case in many smaller, European towns. Staff was very nice and helpful (good directions and advice for restaurants nearby). Breakfast was boring (roll, meat, basic coffee). The room was small but both the room and en-suite was clean, no complaints there. My only real complaint was that I wouldn't want to walk around the area at night alone though, but with someone else/a group it felt safe enough. Overall it's a basic, clean hotel that's very well priced in Faro.

We stayed here for one night after landing late evening at Faro. We took the opportunity to explore Faro the following day. The room we were allocated was overlooking the internal courtyard and although it was very small it was acceptable for one night. The breakfast consisted of bread rolls, cheese, processed ham and cereals. The hotel is in the centre and is a few minutes walk form the bus station and some bars. Reception offered to take us to our room since with hindsight we would have struggled to find it. There's a small snack bar on site for refreshments. I'd stay here again.

A basic and perfectly decent hotel, very conveniently located near the bus station and a short walk from the old city. Staff were very friendly and helpful, and gave me an excellent tip for a very good and basic local restaurant where I ate a memorable meal for under 15 euros. The room was fine, albeit small and a little noisy , and the ensuite adequate. The breakfast is very basic indeed, with boiled and poor quality coffee and a basic roll and cheese or processed meat, or dull cereal, but the price of the hotel is good. Not a bad choice.
