The location is great, in the middle of everything. The hotel is outdated but clean. Rooms are big but modest. The bathroom is good, so is the bed, even though a bit hard. The room can be a bit noisy, but it gets quiet by 10 - 11 p.m., so that wasn't a problem for me. The breakfast looks at... More

In our Azores and Portuguese trip we stayed in 9 different places so the rating and this review are to an extent based on comparison between these places. As I said above - Shame about the building work opposite – best avoided if you do not like noise until it finishes. That may be a while. The picture really flatters... More

Great location, good price (reserved on Booking.com) with one of the best breakfasts in the Azores. Helpful and friendly staff. We had a quiet room on the top floor facing away from the street. Central location and they arranged a taxi transfer from the airport and a car rental for our stay.

The location, in the heart of historic Ponta Delgada, is ideal for discovering the city on foot. Virtually everything a guest needs is within a short walk: museums, major historic sites, shopping, many restaurants and cafes, post office, bus station, taxi stand. The very helpful Ponta Delgada tourism office, on the seafront Avenida Infante D. Henrique, is about two blocks... More

I stayed at this lovely hotel during my trip in Azores in August-September 2013. The hotel is very centrally located and just about 5-10 mins walk from marina. Many nice cafe and restaurants are around. In summer you can also see people playing music and even garbage man sings:) The personnel of this recidencial is extremely friendly and does everything...

This was a great little find, and a super little independent hotel in the centre of Ponta Delgada. I was greeted with a lovely friendly welcome by Pedro and his staff. They recommended tours and organised everything for me. All the staff went out of their way to be helpfully and friendly, and couldn't do enough for you. Before I... More

The location is great, the staff were very friendly, the WIFI worked great, breakfast is good, the room was spacious and the beds were comfortable, but the maintenance is not great. The towels had rags, the cupboard door prevented the drawers from opening, the airconditioning didn't work, keeping the window open at night resulted in noise from a nearby club... More

Simply put - great service. We planned our holidays and searched for interesting places to visit in advance. However when we arrived to the hotel they asked us what we are interested in seeing and the guy at the reception showed us where to go, what to see and what to do. He de facto planned our one day trip... More
