Greeted by welcoming, friendly and helpful staff. Checking-in was effortless, and staff were happy to resolve any issues with our booking. Hotel facilities were clean, fresh linen and towels daily. Breakfast selection was optional, but we didn't use this service. Comfy bed and pillows, minimal noise from outside (occasional airplane/street etc) but otherwise seamless sleep. Great location within Faro (literally...

My friend and I stayed here for three nights. The location is excellent - right in the middle of the city, a short walk from many attractions and the beach. There's a free car park at Largo Sao Sebastian, about a 10-15-minute walk away (though there are often people around the car park who "help" you find a space and...

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.
