Very nice clean good value hotel

Nice clean hotel, better than I thought. One can have as much breakfast as you want which sets you up for the day. Bedroom was clean but a little cool at night. I went up to the terrace on the 6th floor where you can get a view of the city. Not a pretty sight but interesting, a bit like London or Birmingham!! Hotel very nice for a base. Could walk easily in the city, not that big. All in all, a welcomed break.

Catch the local buses and trains, you can even visit Spain which is about 45 mins away. I shared a taxi with someone to keep costs down, the taxi drivers get quite upset at this!!

central location

we stayed here for 9 days the location was was very good close to the shops 5mins from the marina bus and train station. The staff were extremely helpful with any requests that we had and did their best to assist. The only complaint would be the room that we were given which was directly above the front door of the hotel which meant that we could hear every time someone came in at night, whilst this was not a issue at this time of year I could see it being very annoying during the high season when the hotel would be busier and more people out later at night. All in we would return to this hotel for its location and the service we received

Right in town!

Hotel close to the historic attractions of Faro. All within walking distance from hotel. Terrain easy, not too many hills. Train and bus station just a few minutes walk away, easy to explore other towns. Hotel breakfast was very good. Evening meal service excellent, very good chef on duty while we were there. Plenty of other eateries around the city, good standard of cuisine, cleanliness and value. Only recommend Faro itself for short breaks.

Gutes Hotel für kurze Aufenthalte

Das Hotel liegt sehr zentral und das Personal ist echt freundlich. Das Frühstück am Morgen war super! Es wurde alles geboten: Brötchen, Croissants, Brot, Cornflakes, Ei, Bacon, Wurst, Käse, Süßes, Kaffee, Säfte, Milch, Joghurt etc. ... einziges Manko: es gab kein frisches Obst/Gemüse sondern nur welches aus der Dose. Das Zimmer war sauber (abgesehen von 2-3 Flecken auf der Bettdecke), es gab einen kleinen TV, der englische, spanische, deutsche und französische Sender hergab. Wir hatten ein eigenes Bad mit Klo und Dusche und einen kleinen Balkon. Alles in allem war der Aufenthalt gut. Allerdings nichts für einen Entspannungsurlaub, da die Betten sehr hart und unser Zimmer, sehr klein und eigenartig geschnitten war. Wir haben einen Rabattcode nutzen können, somit ist das Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis von 30 € pro Person pro Nacht in Ordnung gewesen. Normaler Preis: 40 € wär uns zu viel gewesen.

Nichts für Urlauber

Das Hotel Santa Maria Faro ist nichts für Urlauber, weil es Frühstück nur bis 10.30h gibt und ab ca. 10.00h das meiste schon nicht mehr im Büffet zur Verfügung steht. Z.B. Eier, Bacon, Obstsalat, Toast, Croissants, Yoghurt. Das Fernsehgerät war auf eine maximale Lautstärke von 50% beschränkt, einige Kanäle waren dadurch so leise, dass man mit schon mit der eigentlich relativ leisen Klimaanlage nichts mehr verstehen konnte. Abhilfe wurde verweigert. Das Zimmer lag zum Hof hin, dieser war nur als erweiterter Lichtschacht zu bezeichnen, mit Blick auf Klimaanlagen.
