This is a simple yet highly satisfactory hotel in the heart of Faro town. It's not well situated for beach lovers but great if you just want to explore the town for a couple of days, or are passing through. It is NOT, contrary to one review "5 mins walk from the station". In Faro, the pavements are mostly made... More

We stayed one night in this lovely pension which is very well located in Faro to the bus depot and train station. The owner/manager is so nice and very helpful. We didn't know Portuguese and he doesn't speak English but we managed to communicate with French and a little Spanish. I did reserve the room over the telephone using this... More

We spent two nights here in low season. The room at the front overlooked a nice square and there was no problem with noise because Faro is a ghost town in winter. As per other reviews the place is spotless especially the sparkling bathroom. The host is charming and offered to communicate in Spanish, French or Portuguese but we managed... More

Lovely owner, little English but spoke French instead. Basic rooms but very clean and pleasant. Only slight downside the shop below my room decided to restock at 7am in the morning... More

Most reviews have said it all already. Its location is superb, not only convenient for both bus and rail station,near the waterfront, but also surrounded by restaurants and cafes plus a supermarket next door. Our room was large and airy with a nice big clean bathroom - hard to beat at the price.No breakfast, but plenty places nearby. Really pleasant,... More

its not a spectacular place, dont expect much. its simple, clean, a very very friendly owner - an older gentleman. a place to stay and feel welcome, one where you can walk barefeet through room and bath without wondering what sticks to your toe. also, its a small place, and those who put five stars secretly might wish that it...

the central is near the heart of the city of faro, a lovely pension, very clean and very friendly hosts. we stayed in a big room for 50€ without breakfast, with a lovely terrace. despite its central location, it's not too noisy, even if you hear the sounds of the cars or the voices of clients of the restaurants close...
