    Location location location, step out of the hotel door's directly into the shops bar's and restaurants. Town square only 2 minute walk away, beach 5 minute walk. Clean tidy rooms, swimming pool never crowded. Suited to older traveller's without children.

    Noise level at night, but you must expect this from its location.

  • Group of friends
    9.0

    Very central to beach, bars, excellent restraunts especially on the beachfront. Very clean and good breakfast bar.Staff very attentitive to any problems or queries that may arise during stay.Still did not find it noisy due to its location..

    Our aircondition gave a problem and we were immedaitely relocated to another room.

    The location was excellent.room was a very good size.ample room for clothes,excellent balcony and pool was very accessible. I found that there was no access for disabled but otherwise it was an exceptionally good hotel. All in allmy wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and would definitely reccomend it

    No access for disabled

    Cheap, comfortable and good value

    The noise from the treets which went until 200am each morning

  • Group of friends
    7.8

    Comfortable room in the very heart of old town Albufeira. Large bathroom facilities, very efficient air conditioning.

    However stayed at this hotel with friends. Their room, for the same price had a much smaller balcony, much smaller bathroom facilities and an air conditioner that didn't work. As such I canot answer the next question as with our room I would recomend it, however by the standard of their room definitly not.

  • Group of friends
    9.6

    The location was excellent. Slap bang in the middle of the nightlight of Oldtown and beside all restaurants and shops. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful and if I was to return to Albufeira again this will be my hotel of choice.

    Didn't like the access into the hotel. Have to open two sets of glass doors and climb a flight of marble stairs to get to reception, with suitcases in tow! Quiet a difficult task.

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    Location and personal attention from staff

    Noise levels occassionally,and the positioning of the lifts to get to the upper floors.

  • Single
    9.6

    I stayed in April 2011. Hotel situated on pedestrian walkway - very accessable for shops, restaurants and beach. Breakfast consists of fresh fruit, cheese, ham & salami, toast, juices, tea or coffee. If you wished for a cooked breakfast the charge was 4 euros. Pool area with loungers and snack bar. Bed linen clean, bed comfortable, wardrobe size varied in rooms. Yes would stay again.
