    Pleasant staff, free use of internet computer near to reception.

    Depressing location on a dirty street. Bleak looking rooms. Breakfast too basic, not worth getting out of bed for. People turning up on the day were able to get a much better rate than I paid in advance. Was very poor value for money (I paid 110 euros per night for a family room).

    Exceptional

    Helpful staff, pleasant hotel interior, clean room and bathroom, decent bed, AC, balcony with view

    Ugly street and unattractive main entrance (but a lot better from the other side)

    Good value for money and near the train station as I had to take the train early morning.

    The Night porter was helpful and friendly. Air-conditioning doesn't work. The street the hotel is on is covered in graffiti and looks like the slums.

    Fabulous

    More value for money than expected. All was clean, fresh. Good breakfast.

    Little stairs and small elevator are clumsy with large suitcases.

    The very helpful and friendly staff; nice decor; good breakfast dining; everywhere spotlessly clean.

    Good

    The fact that the room had a patio, and the cleanliness

    The room was extremely small, and had no view whatsoever, despite the advertised. The room was located at the back of the hotel, far from the main entrance, having to pass through the breakfast room to get there. It faced the emergency exit of the nearby hospital, and since it was on the first floor, I could hardly sleep, because of the noise.

    Superb

    Location, helpful staff, price

    - one receptionist didn't know how to process a charge refund to my credit card; - no fruits and yogurts for breakfast.

    Fabulous

    We stayed for one night to facilitate an early flight and spend the day sightseeing in Faro. The staff were pleasant and helpfull, the room was a good size, spotless and had a generous balcony. Breakfast was adequate with good hot coffee. The hotel is a short walk from the train station and convenient for cafes, bars and city sites. My wife and I considered this an excellent two star Hotel which was excellent value for money.

    Good

    The room and the bathroom were quite small, but very clean. The beds were comfortable and the breakfast good and fresh. In the hotel there was also a computer with an internet connection. I particularly liked this room because the furniture and the lighting made it cozy and warm... kinda like being in your own living room.

    quite clean and price is OK for the value of stay, breakfast is included as well which is an extra

    receptionist did not know even a word in English, he was very slow to check us in. When we arrived our so called quadruple room we saw there was 2 single beds and an un made sofa. We had to discover the way to turn the sofa into a double bed ourselves. Staff was not helpful at all. The beds should have been ready as we arrived. The breakfast was amongst the most basic ones I have encountered. (one type of cheese, cooked ham, bread and a croiscent like stuff, and a colourful liquid- quite likely to be orange juice and a few extras). The neighbourhood is very poor with abondoned buildings resembling a post war era place..

    Convenient for the airport

    The area around the hotel appeared somewhat run down but that is nothing to do with the hotel. The greeting from the hotel staff was a little abrupt at first but he then he mellowed and became more friendly. The room was basic but ideal for our purpose; somewhere to stopover for an early morning flight. Breakfast included so the price was fine.

    First night was fine but when returned a week later were put in a room, with no window , no curtain looking onto dining area where light was on shining on our eyes. Next door to reception and night porter ,who had an extremly loud voice. First clients left at 4.35am after that even with ear plugs was impossible to sleep. Toilet smelt and feel that this room no 6 should never be used for guests. Hotel staff very apologetic . Breakfast very good.
