Historic Hotel Marred by Horrible Service
We chose this hotel for our ~week-long stay in Algarve, and could not have been more dissatisfied. The hotel's staff, from the receptionist to the cleaning crew, and even more so the hotel's manager, absolutely refuse to help in even the most basic of requests. I remind that this is a 3-star hotel, but they offer a 1-star service at best. I'll explain a few issues below, but I strongly discourage staying at this hotel, not only on account of their rude, apathetic and unprofessional staff, but also on the quality of the hotel. It's certainly overpriced by European standards. Prior to making our reservation, we inquired whether they had rooms with 1 actual bed or a better solution then just loosely combining twin beds. The hotel manager promised us a topper for our beds, which we agreed to. We confirmed on multiple occasions that our room is to have this topper, but upon our late check-in on Friday night, we were given a room with two twins separated and it took the staff 3 days to accommodate our original request. We were promised by the hotel’s owner a refund on the first 2 nights, but then only given 20%. The attached photos describe other issues we faced. Shower did not properly drain, which was disgusting to say the least. Cleaning staff did not replace toiletries or clean cups on multiple occasions. Receptionist refused to help in most regards, like bringing to our room the forgotten soap, or in making restaurant reservations. Hotel manager was unprofessional.

Not worth the cost
Overall I would not stay here again, but it may be OK for you: Pros: Clean modern room, great WiFi, great Shower Cons: Worst check in ever, the guy just grunted and would not respond to any questions, where he told me there was free parking ended up costing 36 euros, very close to the nightclubs so it is very noisy at night, there was no free newspapers Tip, don't pay extra for a street view, we did and got a wonderful view of an kitch exhaust duct, all rooms face external so just go for the basic.

Nice hotel with exc. location and amazing restaura
Loved the hotel, especially it's location. It is right on the edge of the Old Town and steps away from the beach. The only things that I found fault with, and they were minor, we're that the beds were extra, extra firm and there were no wash clothes. The breakfast was ok, but was definitely your basic continental. The quality was good, just not a hearty breakfast if that is what you are looking for. On another note, the attached restaurant had THE BEST pizza and steak in town!

Very pleased with location
Great location. Urban Pizza as part of the hotel was a plus. Friendly and helpful staff. I wasn't familiar with the town so took a chance hoping it wasn't too far away from things. Not at all. Taxi stand in front, plenty of nearby restaurants and a hop skip and a jump to the beach without having to walk so much up or downhill.. Room and bathroom were a bit small, but that didn't interfere with the pleasure of the atmosphere. Rooftop bar and balcony were nice too. Hotel seemed well known. Will return.
