Sometimes you just need a comfortable, convenient airport hotel that means you can hop out of bed in the morning and be at the airport in a few minutes. While Faro Airport doesn’t have an on-site airport hotel, there are a few hotels nearby. 

Some of these hotels you can get to on foot, and for others it’s best to drive there. Taxis (including Uber) are also available from Faro Airport. 

Hotel 3K Faro Aeroporto

Hotel 3K Faro Aeroporto is situated around 650m from Faro Airport, which is so close that some people walk from the airport to this hotel (note: it’s a busy road). As there are no hotels actually at Faro Airport, this is the closest thing Faro Airport has to an airport hotel.

Hotel 3K has a swimming pool, 24-hour reception desk, garden, and a terrace. Parking is available outside the front of the hotel. Free Wi-Fi is also available throughout the hotel.

While there are a few restaurants nearby there isn’t a huge selection, and many visitors find themselves going into Faro (roughly 5 km away) or the nearby village of Montenegro (around 1.2 km away). Alternatively, there’s a Pingo Doce supermarket next door.
