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.

This property has a great location which is very central to the attractions in downtown Ponta Delgada. We were in room 124 which is a large inner room overlooking the pool. It was quiet and the in room Wifi worked very well. The beds are a little hard and were twin sized pushed together to make a larger bed. The... More

Charming little old school style hotel, but it does lack few things: not all the rooms have wi fi, there is no kettle in the room (which is a shame because it would be such an enjoyment to have tea or coffee with the view of the charming roofs of nearby houses); there is an old tiny tv but great...

The rooms are old and in desperate need of renovation. The furniture is from the 1980's at best. TV's are also old - from the 90's at best. Having said that, they have a good selection of channels. Wi-Fi is only available in the lobby, and maybe in some rooms directly above the lobby. Otherwise, no internet in the room.... More

This classic, privately run hotel is an oasis of calm with easy walking access to all points in Ponta Delgada by walking, local mini-bus or bus service to island's sights. The design respects the original school and the staff are most helpful. This is not your modern glitzy anonymous box, but a gem of value and consideration. Wonderful breakfast with... More
