good clean hotel night porter on sunday 16th may 2010 was very helpful
poor breakfast the hotel was souless only suitable for short stay. we stayed for 2 nights due to ash cloud disruption
It was perfectly clean, staff friendly and breakfast buffet was good. The price is excellent,.We live in a very quiet area so asked for a quiet room. I recomend to sleep at the back 4th or 5th floor (if you are not used to traffic noise) there is a occasional dog barking, but the staff warned us of this. We considered they were very upfront about this and tried really hard to please us. We will definately be staying there again.
The staff spoke good English and was very helpful and service-minded. Our room was nice and clean and the hotel was in the center and thus close to everything in Faro. For a small price, this hotel offered no luxury but everything basic that you need - breakfast, information, safety box, etc.
The coffee was kept warm all night (I believe) and tasted terrible. The breakfast in general felt pretty unhealthy, with no whole grain bread option and little fresh fruit, nuts, etc.
The hotel was centrally located in Faro, within walking distance of shops, most restaurants as well as buses. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful and spoke good english.The hotel room was old but clean but had everything you needed.
I was very impressed by the very welcoming attitude of the receptionist- accommodating in every respect. I was delighted with her advice regarding sites to visit, the impending fair etc.
great stay in dom bernardo!
Location and room quality quite interesting for the price.
An excellent location for a visit to Faro or for an overnight transit hotel for going to or from the airport. Very high standard of cleanliness in the rooms at a great price. Spacious rooms with local TV and minibar. Overall very satisfied for a transit hotel.
Location and size of the room, free internet (cable though), staff ok too
- very smelly (sewage) toilet, even the bedroom and the whole hotel at times - thin walls, so quite noise: could hear well people next room or above, as well as in the corridor - internet only worked from time to time
The staff were very friendly and helpful and our rooms were very clean and comfortable. The air conditioning in our rooms worked brilliantly which meant we slept well. The breakfast was delicious with a good choice. Although the hotel probably needs a bit of modernising, it was an ideal hotel for a one or two night stay.
Everything was as expected decor wise. The bedroom was comfortable. Breakfast was great, with lots to chooses from. We checked in late due to a delayed flight. The night staff worker, sorry forgot his name, was very good, chatty and welcoming. In the morning we had to get a taxi back to the airport to pick up a hire car. This was arranged with no problems. When I got to my resort near Albufeira I realised I left a jacket in my room with my ipod in. I phoned the hotel and spoke to Ruth who located it and then, at my request, sent it in a taxi to me. There was no fuss. Ruth did an excellent job. She is a star. Thanks very much to all at the hotel for making it a great stay.
We had a very early plane to catch the next morning and the staff were exceedingly helpful in booking a taxi and finding out what time we needed to be at the airport.
It was quite a good hotel for the price and the location was good enough to walk a short journey into Faro. The rooms were very clean and tidy. An overall satisfactory stay.
The walls are very thin and noises are heard throughout the building and into the small hours, and the bar is small. There were dogs barking loudly some of the time across the road.
The staff not do service good.
Very close to everything. The staff was very helpful & the hotel itself very clean. It was lovely weekend away.
The airconditioning was leaking ..
