The hotel that wants you to stay!

Nice bright hotel, fast and efficient check-in, though I had to change rooms due to broken fan heater (much needed in cooler evenings in November). This room change was arranged quickly by reception staff. They were very helpful and followed up to ensure I was happy. Breakfast was very good with long 'opening' hours (6.30am - 12 noon). Room was cleaned daily, beds made and towels changed. Great shower too.

Great location in old town Faro. Great size room, amazingly comfy bed and pillows! Room (309) was a bit tatty, as in it didn’t look the cleanest, needed a repaint and a new carpet. Also thankful that I was able to get in the gap between the end of the sink vanity unit to use the toilet- inches at best! But we only used the room for sleeping and showering, so great value for money for our weekend break.

Modern, comfortable central Faro Hotel

We chose Stay Hotel as we needed somewhere central before an early flight from Faro and it was pretty perfect. Great location 10 minutes walk to train and airport bus station and close to the main shopping area and plenty of eateries to chose from. It’s an older hotel that has been recently renovated and the room and bathroom were bright, modern and comfortable - particularly comfortable bed! The staff were also very pleasant and gave me exactly the room I’d pre-requested. So ticked all my boxes and I’d happily use it again.
