From the outside you would never expect such a lovely, quaint, clean and nicely decorated hotel. Located right on the river, they have a few rooms with a balcony and view f the river. Rooms are basic but adequate and clean. Staff is very helpful and friendly. There is no elevator, and quite a few (short) stairs. Staff will help...

Location for us was perfect - central to facilities, restaurants, bars etc. Balcony with view (over the river) was perfect, with space to sit outside at night with a drink (room 212). A fridge in the room was of benefit to keep bottled water in. No noise at night from outside. Interior was quaint and authentic, and not a bland...

This hotel has a perfect location with nice river view but I am afraid that this is the only attraction of this place. We had a very small room with uncomfortable beds. The bath room was very small too. The breakfast was rather poor quality. I would not recommend this place to my friends

Lovely litle hotel right on Tavira`s estuary. Ask for "a room with a view" and you will be in paradise!!. We found the personel extremely friendly and helpful and the rooms were a good size and very clean. Parking just outside the front door!! God value for money. And a lovely terrace at the top of the building if you...

We apparently stayed the same night or right after the aforementioned review. Staff so friendly, location perfect, free parking a plus, and the roof views are excellent. It is also very spare in the rooms, but that is fine. It is just run down, and the rooms need a slight bit of updating, and cleaning. Our bed was clean (and...

Stayed here just one night. The room really needed a face lift. The bed was uncomfortable. Air con didnt work neither did the tv. There was stains on the top cover of the bed and the shower cubicle needed re grouting. Not my idea of a comfortable night at all. Wont stay again. Best part was the staff they were...

This pleasant place has an excellent location right along the river. We booked a "family room" online for EUR 65 per night; we ended up getting two adjoining double rooms that gave us plenty of space as well as two private bathrooms. While the rooms were a bit dark and musty (the closets were so musty we couldn't even use...

Stayed on 2nd floor in a family setup. We had 2 rooms both on suite behind another secure door. Staff were lovely and breakfast pretty good too. Location one minute from ferry that takes you to the beach.

Very good location, close to the river and to the small city. Lots of restaurants in the hotel street and a restaurant in the first floor of the hotel building as well. This is only a 2 star hotel, old fashion and needs renovation. The “balcony” is just a door with a fence, but possible to put the chairs in...
