The hotel is perfectly located; it is in a quiet area, two blocks from the ocean, a few blocks from a great supermarket and near many tourist destinations in Miraflores, at a great price.
There are 2 sections in this hotel. We stayed on both sides (on two separate trips) and found the rooms to be basic and comfortable. The newer side has larger rooms, but we preferred the older side. The rooms are smaller but you get a nice view from the large windows (see photos). We stayed on the 4th floor just one stairway from the upstairs outdoor lounge. I am very sensitive to noise, but did not have any problems during our 3 day stay.
We actually enjoyed this hotel because they have two outdoor areas where you can sit out with a glass of wine and relax.
I was surprised about all the negative comments by the other travelers, since I found the staff to be very helpful…a bit slow maybe, but this is due to the fact that they only have one person for luggage, kitchen and bar. Besides this is South America where things can be a bit slower. I do speak Spanish and perhaps this helped to get what we needed. They took and retrieved our luggage from the 4th floor, served us drinks in the little patio downstairs and in the lounge upstairs. The server even brought me an opener and a wine glass so I could enjoy the bottle of wine I purchased at the supermarket.
Yes, they asked us to wait while they checked the mini bar; I consider that to be a standard procedure for many hotels and did not bother me a bit.
Would I stay at the Faro Inn again? Absolutely!
P.S. Check the Altamar restaurant a few blocks from the hotel if you like fresh sea food...Excellent!
