The hotel is very central - entire downtown area is within 15 minutes or less walking. Free parking is located about 4 blocks north, or you can pay for valet. Clean rooms, although thin walls, as to be expected in an older building. What stopped my giving this a better rating is the included breakfast. It's not very good. I... More

We stayed here for just one night. It was really great. Our room, 118, had a small balcony and overlooked the park with its flowers, palm trees and pigeon flocks. It was a large open and airy room with very comfortable beds. The breakfast was included and was very good with numerous choices, both hot and cold. The staff are... More

We stayed for 2 nights here enroute from Lisbon to Boston, allowing us to spend a day and a half sightseeing in the Azores. It is conveniently located in downtown Ponta Delgada. The room and bathroom were very clean and comfortable. There was a lot to choose from at the included breakfast (3 types of eggs, bacon and sausage, a... More

We stayed here over Christmas and really enjoyed it. It was a fantastic location and was very quiet with a great Christmas dinner. We returned weeks later and realized it was quiet because of the holiday - unfortunately they seem to have some sort of sports bar under the hotel which plays loud music until about 2AM. I'm not a...

Central place 4 star hotel. Every star is fully earned. Out-of-season stay very comfortable with very good and friendly service. Very good morning buffet. Evening menu dull and less inspiring and not to be recommended

Perfect location in the center of Ponta Delgada: close to waterfront, shopping, restaurants, tours, churches, and galleries. The staff were very helpful and quick to respond. I spoke with other visitors to town and couldn't find a reason to stay anywhere else. This will be my choice the next time I visit Ponta Delgada. ...oh the point about trust. I... More

This hotel has the potential to be a great 4-star hotel but fails on so many fronts that it was simply one big disappointment. We could live with the tiny room with almost no storage and the front desk having to come to our room to enable use of the safe, but no kleenex? no cream? no conditioner? And no... More

We checked in after a few days of touring around the island staying in a different hotel each night, which is a fun way to see the island of Sao Miguel. The location is wonderful allowing to just walk about everywhere in the central part of town and waterfront. Unfortunately, the night we stayed there was a large family birthday... More
