Can anyone recommend a hotel in the old town (or within a few mins walk) ... either b&b, room only or s.c.

1. Re: old town hotel

Here's my potted list of old town hotels. Friends have stayed in Estalagem do Cerro and pronounced it good value.

Hotel Baltum - right in the old town, small rooms but very handy.

Sol e Mar Hotel - right on the beach; a few steps.

Rocamar Beach Hotel - above the beach (100 steps but a lift is being built)

Turial Park apartments - 100 yards from the beach. Flat access.

Estalagem do Cerro (Hotel) - about 5 - 10 minutes walk from the beach, bars etc in a slightly quieter part of town. Parking available

Hotel California - 50 m from the beach , in the bar street, might be noisy.

Residencial Mansao Bertolina - 100 m from the beach

Hotel Vila Sao Vicente - a quarter mile from the old town centre and beaches. Small hill to climb. Underground car park for guests.

Hotel Colina do Mar - about six or seven minutes walk into the old town centre. Fairly stiff climb back up the hill afterwards though.

Vila Recife - about 5 minutes walk from old town square. Small pool and air-con. www.vilarecife.com

Belver Boa Vista - about 10 minutes walk from old town centre and beaches; recently refurbished.

Note that the old town of Albufeira is now a pedestrian zone and the only parking is a multi-storey car park for €1 per hour and this is usually full early during holiday season.

There are car parks on the edge of town but some are 10 minutes walk.

You should be able to find comments/reviews on these by searching previous forum items.

stayed at the california 2 years ago. It is on the main street. The rooms are basic but clean. could not fault the breakfast. plenty to eat. We booked ours through travel supermarket. Would definitely stay there again although could be a bit noisy at night if the room was on the front.
