Casa Mitchell flaunts homely accommodation and a handy setting. It’s nestled among gardens, too, so it’s really private.
Casa Mitchell is a tiny, family-run hotel, set in a converted old townhouse in Albufeira. The atmospheric old town is just a ten-minute walk away, and sandy Fisherman’s Beach is roughly the same distance.
One-bedroom apartments and studios are spread over the property, and some overlook the gardens, which are full of blooms. They’ve got lots of character, thanks to homely rugs and pastel blue wooden furnishings.

Quiet, convenient location, excellent wifi
Stayed here again and this time put in Apartment 54, down the stairs - what some people have referred to as "the basement." My husband and I found it very pleasant, very convenient for the pool and not in direct sun in the afternoons, which is a really good thing. Trust me on this - the heat was such that lack of it is sometimes a relief! The shower is excellent, as is the wifi. The only thing that bothered us were the beds - twin, rather than double, which is okay. It's just that after a certain age, bones get old and the beds seemed rather hard. Probably wouldn't have bothered us 20 years ago, but this time my husband had to put thick blankets under the bottom sheet, which eased it to a great degree. Staff helpful, friendly. Old town 5 to 10 minutes away, place over the road for breakfast, shop on corner for essentials (warning, both closed Sundays). Would happily stay there again.More
Fantastic few days in the sun
As we normally stay in hotels we were a little bit concerned as to what we would get especially as it was such a bargain, but can honestly say that we were really impressed. We had a lovely apartment on the top floor with a balcony overlooking the pool, it was very spacious, light and well equipped, ok the TV was on the small side but we weren't there to watch tv! The pool area was a gem, sheltered from the wind and very clean with loads of sun beds, so never a problem to get one. The staff were all very helpful and always happy to recommend places to eat or visit. The room was serviced 5 put of the 6 days and towels changed when requested.More
Bargain 'basement' fun in the sun...
Hubby and I have just returned from a week in the gorgeous resort of Old Town Albufiera staying at the Casa Mitchell Apts. Having always wanted to visit Portugal this cheapie break was just the ticket especially as I am tied to school holidays. This offer was the first to pop up on screen so we made a quick decision (it being 2 days before departure) and I'm glad we did. What a beautiful setting for a couples only property. Casa Mitchell is situated above the Old Town area with sea views from the street outside (and maybe upper levels too?). Old Town is full of a good mix of restaurants and plenty of lively night-life. Unfortunately being an elevated area a walk anywhere is always going to be down hill and on paths made mostly from the sort of flat stones that drives and garden paths are made from; I actually prefer these to the slippy grey square tiles you find across the border in Spain. Once dropped off just above Casa Mitchell we went across the road as instructed to sign in and get our keys where we met Nico who was very welcoming and helpful. Like a previous reviewer we also got Apt 51 which we referred to as the 'cellar' room. It is a cool apartment not rarely seeing the sun at all. Which might be perfect for less sun lovers than us but one of my most favourite things to do on holiday is to sit and read on the balcony or terrace while hubby has a lie in or afternoon nap. Actually on the other side of the terrace there is a nice little garden that gets the sun but wasn't open to visitors. Also as we travel light I hand wash our things during the holiday but this is the first time we have ever stayed where I have struggled to dry washing as no airer and in shade; meaning our swimming things and washed clothes took a good day to dry out of any sun. This room is situated around the corner from the pool area meaning not only is there no reason to sit outside but you can't see if one of you is in the pool which is kept super clean btw. The clean poolside area is right under a wall directly outside both our bedroom and living room windows between which runs the path to other apartments, so our windows were kept shut so as not to disturb anyone relaxing outside with the tv which we kept on to have a private conversation if we did open a window. All this said; no getting away from it IMHO this is a lovely 3 star accommodation and as such you get exactly that (so if you're a 'Four in a Bedder' - wanting 5 star accommodation for a 3 star cost you'll be out of luck). Yes, the furniture maybe well worn but everything is clean and serviceable. On the little wall mounted TV I quickly found 20+ English language channels and several music channels which proved useful. We thought there were plenty of plug sockets including one very conveniently placed next to the sofa, under the vanity table in the living room; just right for my make-up, jewellery and of course hair straighteners! The toilet paper issue you just have to get on with and as they supply plenty it is nothing to wrap used tissue up in more tissue before popping in the little bin. We think the housekeeper came 5 out of the 7 days changing used towels, emptying bins and tidying the beds :) all in all a lovely stay. I have a very bad back but didn't let hills ruin my holiday and provided you are ok walking you will be fit at the end if not at the start! FYI there is a mini market almost next door (up the road next to the gallery) and opposite that is the 'Cantina' a friendly and early opening 7-7.30 cafe :)More
Spent a fortnight here with the husband, what a fantastic time we had. Leo's bar across the way was amazing, great value and a goodnight out. Lovely views from the balcony and the bed was superb. Definitely will be back.....More
