We stayed at this hotel for the couple of days with friends on a short break. Room was clean, but decor could benefit with update, however this reflects on a very bargain price. Hotel provides us with breakfast, basic but sufficient to start your day. Great fixture of this place is position, very close to the centre and beach. Also...

We booked this hotel 3 nights before we actually flew there. A lot of the time I read reviews before booking and decide there and then. This time was different as I knew the location of the hotel was good as I'd been to Albufeira before. So firstly in no review have I seen anyone mention the hill the hotel...

Disgusting, something...

As in the title the good thing about this hotel was the location, 5 minute walk to bars and restaurants in old town. We had asked for a high floor room with a pool view when booking but this was totally ignored, we talked to people who had booked after us and they had got what we asked for. We...

Friendly staff and no problem to print airline tickets. Close to old town square but no noise. Rooms cleaned daily. I left money on bed one day when I went out and cleaner put it all together and put it on table in room, how honest is that. The girl in reception has worked in a couple I have stayed...
