Nice location, very close to the Old City
The hotel is strategically located, a short walk to the Old City & about 15 mins walk to the train station with the bus terminal along the way. The reception staff were excellent & I was warmly welcomed by Laura & Daniel upon arrival. They were very kind & gracious in attending to my needs throughout my stay in the hotel. Generally the room was clean but with no AC or fan made it uncomfortable & sweaty. I believe a coffee & tea-maker should be provided in the room in the absence of an in-house cafeteria or restaurants. The washroom was ok except I found that the shower space a little bit tight. All said, it was a good stay ... conveniently located to all the needs of a traveller.

Great location for the Old Town.
The hotel was basic but practical. The staff spoke excellent English and were very helpful with any enquiry and were always happy to help. The rooms were clean. The only downside to our room was that there was no air conditioning unit.

Visited Faro for 4 days
The team that worked on reception was really nice. They helped us organize our 4 days stay in Faro. Everyday we went on different beach by train, bus, boat... They were really helpful. Also, they recommended several places to eat in the city, and some bars as well. It was a good experience, me and my friend were very happy. I'll definitely recommend this place.
