The rooms are small (at least mine was) and simple but very nicely done. The staff were very nice and helpful, and most speak English well. Booking was easy via email. The location is great, at the far end of town near the university and the new ferry terminal and away from the hustle and bustle of the waterfront, though... More

I loved my stay at Casa do Lado. My room had a great view of Mt Pico and the staff were unfailingly friendly and helpful. The location was nice and close to lots of good shops, restaurants, sights, and the marina. I look forward to staying there again.

We only stayed for a single night. We had wifi, tv, bathroom, balcony with a view to Pico and nice breakfast. It's a family hotel, very nice people. We spotted mosquitoes but the bed had a net, so they stayed out.

I spent 1 night at this cosy family hotel and I'm very much satisfied with everything - starting from the room finishing by the breakfast. Everything was quite all right at reasonable price. There are some people who expect 5-star services from tur-class hotels, it's a great mistake. This family hotel suites all my expectations - I got everything I... More

It didn't take me long to decide to stay at A Casa do Lado. Their Internet site and the overall reviews here provided already a good feeling to what I would expect during my 9 day holiday on Faial. The confirmation of my reservation and the additional e-mail confirmed that feeling and already gave me the idea that this would... More

Casa do Lado is a very nice and home feeling place at a very central and nearby spot. For me it was the second time I stayed there and I vividly recommend it. I just read the last review and I think that some people should be "forbidden" to leave their homes... I was there on business and hard work... More

We've been travelling trough Azores for 3 weeks and our staying in Casa do Lado was the worst nightmare. We did not sleep even a minute because of mosquitos! There was nothing we can do: niether the net nor closing the balcony doors was helpful (on the margin: we were boiling inside). After all at 5.51 a.m. we ask the... More

A very pleasant place, familiar and with nice people. The staff is helpful and very polite. The rooms are simple, nice and clean. The bathroom was very clean, with spotless towels. The beds were comfortable. The price was very good.
