We stayed at this hotel as a couple by the end of May for three nights. The hotel hits all marks for its location which is super central in the historic heart of Ponta Delgada. However, it fails in other respects and for that reason I can't understand how can this property be rated a four star hotel. The rooms:... More

The location is fantastic and it is great value for money. In places the hotel is a little tired but there is nothing that one can complain about. The rooms are large. Breakfast was a bit limited but the food in the restaurant was good in the evening. Overall I could' the complain and I would definitely recommend this hotel

What a nice place to arrive in, the front desk were really nice and sorted the room out tout suit. Then the owner appeared and was our concierge. Do we require anything else. We are all set up for a fantastic week in Ponta Delgado . Not bad for our first day more reviews to come!

Relaxing, simple luxury, it's a pleasant stay, in an excellent location. Having come here as part of a conference with my partner happily in tow. The room was very comfortable and the environment of the establishment pleasant. Breakfast is ok - not exceptional but nor is it unpleasant. The adjoining coffee shop and courteous service makes this a place to... More

Firstly the gripes, I only really have two. Number one there is no Internet in the rooms, number two the bed is a little hard. Other than that it was a very pleasant stay, very nice and friendly staff especially Susana. The breakfast is very adequate, and the location in my opinion is very good for Ponta Delgada. Very clean... More

Just a short taxi ride from the airport (10 euro) the hotel is centrally located down a quaint side street. The rooms were clean and functional but a little outdated. The reception staff were excellent, our flight was late so we checked in at 10pm, quick and easy, they also booked day trips for us and they were always cheerful.... More

This hotel is in a converted school from the 19th century. The rooms are very clean and the location is in the middle of Ponta Delgada-very convenient to everything. The food is good and the staff is friendly and helpful. Like many buildings in the Azores they use natural lighting which in the summer is cooler but perhaps a bit... More

Pros: Beautiful hotel, friendly and accommodating staff, nice and quiet, great location. Cons: Bed wasn't amazingly comfortable (but no different from any other Azorean hotels), our room had tiny windows with limited views, and broadband access was patchy.

Lovely hotel in the middle of the old town near all the shops, restaurants and the port. Great friendly staff comfortable rooms with all the usual, except the hair dryer didn't work. Nice restaurant though a little pricey and a small cafe doing reasonably priced snacks and drinks. Pretty good overall if a little tired looking.
