The hotel is near the centre, has an excellent view over the marina and the Pico island, but to consider it a 4star is not correct, the decor is outdated and the restaurant can not handle too many guests at the same time.

We stayed in the hotel for two nights, during our stay in Faial. The lobby and sittin corners are beautiful, with stunning view to Mt. Pico and city of Horta. The rooms are clean and comfortable with small balcony to the same view. However they are very basic, first of all you get two single beds instead of a twin... More

This hotel is very clean and we had a really big bed. From the room we had a stunning view on Pico volcano and so you have from all of the rooms and also from the restaurant. The breakfast wasn't as extensive as in the former hotels we stayed, but it was enough.

The hotel is staffed with very friendly, helpful people, though some struggle with English. The sea view is absolutely gorgeous. The prices at the bar and restaurant are quite reasonable though it is not open for lunch and the menu is a bit limited and never changes. Do not order the steak if you want anything other than well done.... More

Located in a nice quiet area, only a 10 minute walk from the marina (the way back is an uphill trek). I really liked this hotel. All the rooms have balconies with a great view of the sea and Pico. If you're a smoker, you can smoke out on your balcony. My room and bathroom were both large and clean,... More

I was only there for one night, but it did the job. With a rather outdated/ bland exterior and hallways that smelled a little of stale cigarette smoke, the room itself was clean and relatively large with an amazing view! They supplied a few toiletries and the bathroom was in good condition, except for the shower head - which was... More

I use this hotel for an overnight stay before the flight home if I can't get a suitable flight out of Pico. I particularly like it because it's so relaxing, it's understated, quiet, comfy and the staff just can't do enough for me. Superb view of the coast and of course Pico from the upper floors. I booked a standard... More

After climbing a steep hillroad (I was exhausted) we made it to entrance. Welcoming and friendly staff showed us our room. All OK in room, even some fruit waiting for us. Fantastic view to island Pico from the balcony. Tired so we tried the dinner there too. Quite OK fish served by helpful but inexperienced staff. Breakfast next morning was... More

Had 3 nights here whilst sailing from Antigua to the UK and fancied a few nights in a proper bed. OK it was January so clearly not high season, but for 2 of us it cost £99 for the 3 nights inclusive of full breakfast booked through hotels.com. Amazing value. The room was spacious and clean. A balcony looked over... More

I've read several bad reviews about this hotel and I have to say that I absolutely don't agree with them.First of all you have to know that on the island of Faial there are only three hotels and Horta hotel has the nicest location.It is not one of the modern resorts you would expect in any place crowded with tourists...
