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 With a rather outdated/ bland exterior and hallways that smelled a little of stale cigarette smoke, the room itself was clean and relatively large with an amazing view!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...

Nice breakfast. inter-connecting rooms were perfect for our family.it is up a hill- 10 mins walk but the upside is that this gives you a wonderful view (all rooms look out to... More

This Hotel is bad, bad, bad... Starting from the localization... Near from the centre but you have to climb a steep hill. The entrance seems like you are entering a garage. The corridors smell like dust and humidity. The roofs in the corridor are made of wood, but the humidity that comes from the air conditioning hoses, make the roof... More

We stayed for a week in this hotel in the beginning of August 2014. There are so many wrong things with it, I'm not even sure were to start. The hotel corridors and rooms were carpeted, but it was dirty and clearly stained from humidity. Also, the rooms had a musty, damp, smell. This was most unpleasent. It was very... More
