Ideal hotel to stay for our 2 night visit. Comfy beds. Enjoyed our breakfasts especially the Portugese tarts and fresh orange juice. Convenient to walk to local restaurants. Helpful reception staff printed our boarding passes for us. Good value.

We stayed here for one night during our road trip in Portugal. Easy to park on the street (ticket needed) and great location close to the city centre with restaurants and bars. Fresh and clean and easy access to the room. Good breakfast.

Friendly staff, very clean, and in a great location! Walking distance to the Marina, lots of restaurants, bars, cafes, shops & supermarkets. We got a basic room which was reasonably priced and had a nice little balcony with a view of the town

Its a very cute property close to the heart of the small and beautiful town Faro. We loved our stay in this small town. The check inn was comfortable. However, we were given the corner room which was not straight and had a weird and uncomfortable shape. The breakfast was basic and decent. Value for money property.

I had an overnight stay in Faro on way to walking holiday. Good central location, very clean and modern. Kettle in room, a big plus but strangely with only camomile tea, no coffee on offer. Would stay again.

Thank John B
