From the outside the Hotel Faro looks like a white box but don’t let the appearance put you off. Inside the reception and public areas are furnished in a modern style and the bedrooms are comfortable with good beds. The bed linen is white and it was a treat that all towels and sheets were changed every day. The bathroom is large with a shower over the bath.
Breakfast is excellent with a good choice of fresh juices, fresh fruit, hot selection, cheeses, meats and salmon, croissants, lots of different rolls and breads and Portuguese cakes. The restaurant/bar is located on the top floor of the hotel with spectacular views over the river and inlets.
The staff at the Hotel Faro are an asset to the hotel and we found the restaurant staff and receptionists very pleasant and anxious to please. The receptionist recommended the restaurant Adega Nova, which is approximately10 minutes walk from the hotel, near the station. The food was excellent and it was very popular with local Portuguese with only a few tourists.
Several other restaurants are close to the hotel.
The hotel is a short walk to both the bus and train station.
If you wish to have WiFi in your room, the costs are high but the receptionist can give you a password which allows free WiFi use in the reception and ground floor area of the hotel.
