My room at Apartamentos Rainha D. Leonor
Albufeira in southern Portugal is a very popular holiday destination in the summer, but in the winter things are more quiet and many hotels are not very busy at all and this gives you the chance to have a very cheap long stay in Albufeira.
Perfect for a long stay in Albufeira.
I recently spend a few days in Albufeira, where I rented a little hotel apartment for a couple of days and the price was so cheap that I thought this would be really good for a long stay in Albufeira, when the prices here are extremely cheap.
Apartamentos Rainha D. Leonor
The place I stayed is called Apartamentos Rainha D. Leonor and it’s located smack in the old town, just above the beach in a quiet street. You can hardly get a better location if you want to stay near the center without being in the actual bar street.

Apartamentos Rainha D. Leonor is owned by a very nice portuguese couple who speaks english and are very nice. They have a little common room with a bar at the place and there is a nice little garden with a pool there too.
Nice big kitchen at Apartamentos Rainha D. Leonor
My studio apartment was fairly small, but very functional. One room where I had two combined beds/sofas and a nice bathroom and a fairly large and very functional kitchen. I was on the ground floor and could almost jump directly in to the pool from my room and I was very happy with that. Should I mention one thing that could have been a little better, then the internet connection was a little on and off. Sometimes very fine, but sometimes it would go off and this is one thing that many long term stayers are worried about as they often work online, while staying for a long time in a place.
Albufeira has a nice beach.
But all in all I was very happy there, especially since I only paid 15€, yes 15€, per night there for a studio apartment. This price of course varies, all depending on what time a year you are there, but this is why I say that this place is perfect for a long stay in Albufeira during winter months. This is not the place if you are looking for a luxury holiday, but the kinda place you want to stay at if you like to have a place that is simple and cheap, but functional and friendly.
The address of the place is: Rua Coronel Águas, 29, Albufeira City Centre, 8200-111 Albufeira, Portugal.
The phone number of the place is: +351 289 543 671
Apartamentos Rainha D. Leonor does not have a website, but you can book by phone or use booking sites to book the place.
This was just a little advice for people planning a long stay in Albufeira. And don’t forget that Algarve has many diverse attractions and is great for a long stay.
I fucking love Portugal.
