"Hotel for business traveler right near the airport"
Hotel 3K Aeroporto is located less than a kilometer from the Faro airport. Continuous sidewalks apparently aren't a big thing in Faro so I took a cab between hotel and terminal but one could easily walk so long as you don't have too much luggage. The hotel itself is very modern, only a few years old, with clean, bright rooms with small balconies. The front desk has a small bar and the pool, though not open during my stay, looks to be in great condition. Free Wifi is available hotel-wide and was surprisingly fast and reliable. This is a solid choice if you have an overnight layover or an early departure and want to be near the airport. The downsides are as follows: the continental breakfast is not included at at 15 euros is dramatically overpriced. Eat in town. Also, there is no coffee maker in the rooms. Regarding transportation, no bus routes are really close to the hotel unless you walk back to the airport. Cab fare to downtown Faro is 12-15 euros, fare to the university gambelas campus is about 5-6 euros. The front desk will call you a cab and once will show up in about 10 minutes reliably.
The hotel was in very good location, near the old town, ferries and train station. Hotel bar and restaurant were good value, and the rooftop bar in particular has great views. There is also a lovely swimming pool on the roof. The room was a reasonable size but somewhat dated, no safe in the room and bathroom could do with a more thorough clean. Staff were friendly but took too long to checkin and checkout as there was only I person at the desk. Generally a pleasant stay so I would recommend this hotel.
Super modern little hotel close to the old city Center and perfect for exploring Faro. Really ideal location, walking distance to everything, only 5min to all the sights and about 15min to the train station if you want to head to Lagos after. Rooms were nicely decorated and comfortable although a little noisy, not sure if it was the street or other guests. We also had some rushing water sounds in our bathroom throughout the night, don't know why but we closed the door and it seemed to be quiet enough to sleep. Overall would stay there again, really nice and modern and clean, good value for what we paid.

It's about a 10 minute walk to the train and bus stations or a €4/5 taxi. For a Best Western it's not the 'Best' but rooms are pretty good and a good sized bathroom. There are excellent views over the town to the sea
Arrived late but a very pleasant welcome, room was as expected, clean and comfortable. Only had a coffee in the bar but was made to feel welcome. Some time since I have stayed there it has been recently decorated and felt bright and welcoming.

This bustling characterful little town, gateway to the region, is overlooked by most Algarve visitors. Its elegant cobbled, peaceful Old Town is a delight for strolling. The Cathedral is its highlight; climb to the top for wonderful views across Faro’s lagoon. The newer, late 19th-century part of town is a likeable jumble of shopping streets, local bars and restaurants, a regional museum and the Carmo Church with a ghoulish bone chapel.
