Positioned in a great spot near to the strip. The hill to get there can feel a bit daunting at times though. It is a perfect base for the Old Town. The staff remembered us from the last time we came which is always nice. Don't expect five star luxury as it isn't a hotel with a five star price...

stayed here for a week amd had very little issues. Staff were great, rooms cleaned every day, fresh towels and beds done. Couple of mornings they were a bit too eager to get us out of the room though, called a bit early. The hotel itself could probably do with a bit of modernising, but its perfectly fine and our...

I stayed a week here and enjoyed it. The room has a fridge, kettle, cups etc. Room safe cost £10.00 for the week, no deposit required. Staff were fine and quite chatty. Good English. No balcony. Room & bathroom were cleaned daily and to my mind perfectly adequately. 4 small drawers. Good sized wardrobe but not enough hangers for two....

Perfect location - few steps from the old city center, but it's very quiet in the night. Also it's few minutes away from the beautiful beach! Breakfast is very good (million kinds of bread, coffee machine with many kinds of coffee, fresh fruits, and many more). The room is carefully cleaned everyday. Bathing supplies (soap, shampoo) and electric keetle are...

We stayed here for a week in March and a had a lovely time. The hotel is situated on a steep hill, which could put people off. It will only take you 2 minutes to get to the main square though. The maids came in every day, tidied the room, made the beds and left fresh towels. The reception staff...

Checked into the hotel for 4 nights. The staff were friendly. Got up to our non-smoking room and we were immediately hit with a disgusting smell of stale cigarettes. I cannot describe how awful this was as it was quite warm. The rooms were basic, not cleaned very well. We tried to stay out as much as possible, only returning...

Very simple but spotlessly clean little hotel. The simplicity of this hotel reminds me of the hotels I have stayed in in the Greek islands. Plain whitewashed walls, tiled floor, hard bed (suits me with my bad back). However a few welcome extras are included - mini fridge, kettle etc. The hair dryer isn't much good for folically challenged me...

We stayed here for five nights in room 41 on the top/fourth floor. Freshly decorated for the new season, as the smell of paint was still quite strong. Overall a good experience and the hotel was literally 2 mins walk from the main plaza. Couple of minor negative points, two of the three plug points in the room didn't work,...

Have just come to the end of a one week stay at this hotel.....and would certainly come again. Position wise it's perfect...100 yards approx to the lovely old town in Albufeira...as many shops, bars and eateries as you could posssibly want in a really nice setting...with none of the brashness of the new town. 5 minutes walk to the most...
