Really cool decor, lava rock stone walls and felt like you were in a castle. Free extensive breakfast, outdoor pool, and onsite cafe/restaurant. Friendly staff, free wifi, and clean rooms. Very environmentally friendly-- you had to put your key in the slot on the wall to turn on the electricity. Walking distance to downtown shops, restaurants, and the marina/docks.

The hotel is located on an ancient street in the town centre (Rua Carvalho Araújo), very convenient to amenities, bus stops, and the seaside. The airport shuttle bus would drop passengers in front of Museu Carlos Machado Nucleo de Arte Sacra, and the hotel is less than 1 minute walk away. The hotel service was decent, and the facilities provided... More

This hotel is located in a historic building, hidden on a small street but not far away from the center of the city. For me the hotel has a perfect location as you can walk to the main plaza of Ponta Delgada on foot but when you are back in your room, you don't hear the sounds of the main... More

This is a charming, centrally located hotel with a terrific staff. The breakfast was very good. They also run a bakery in town so the bread was terrific as were the natas that they sell in their cafe. The restaurant, Comelia, was very good too but not as good as some others we visited inc Cais 20, Mariserra, the Association... More

There was nothing wrong with the hotel, but nothing special either. Right in the city center, decently clear room, ok breakfast. Very friendly staff in the breakfast and bar. I've read the recommendations and expected something over the usual, but didn't get anything special in any way.

As many travellers, I agree the excellent situation near the city center of Ponta Delgada. You have just e few walks to walk over the large city market, but there is also a lot of noises around the hotel. Not quiet, sometimes very irritating when you wake up in the middle of the night. However, the rooms are clean and... More

Very nicely located hotel, with understated style. Staff went out of their way to help. Breakfast made for our group specially early on last day. There was a link up with local yoga studios, three minutes away by foot, which worked very smoothly. Walks and bus rides a plenty took us to superb valleys and down to the sea. We... More

This hotel is indeed located right in the city center, making walks and strolls a daily pleasure. THe staff is very friendly and helpful. Price is reasonable. It is more typical of 3 stars in accommodations, but price is also in line. Bed was a little solid, but it did not bother my sleep, as most days were filled with... More

The hotel in located right in the city center, you have everything nearby. Clean. Nice breakfast. nice staff. All you need after a day long travelling around the island. Would come back any time. The hotel is not overwhelming, but the island is.
