Great hotel, real friendly staff, clean, nice breakfast buffet (wide selection), and the best is their location. Real close to everything including many good restaurant surrounding it, 2 streets from Marina, 2 streets from free parking, 2 streets from grocary store, 2 streets from a bakery. Can't ask for a better location. My only complaint, is that we had a... More

The positives of this hotel are a mostly accommodating staff, a central location and relatively nice interiors in the rooms. That is where it ends. The room we got had views into a wall, extremely loud air conditioning, a french balcony that didn't open and no other windows, and the bathroom smelled horribly of sewage, stay away from room 117!...

We stayed here during our recent trip to the Azores and were very happy with the hotel. Staff generallly were freindly and helpful. Our suite 320 was huge - sitting room, bedroom and large bathroom - all kept clean and well serviced but was on the noisier side of the hotel which was a minor problem due to the Football... More

Hotel Talisman has pleasant rooms, good sized bathroom, comfortable beds. The sheets were changed every 2 days and the towels whenever we wanted. There are comfortable lounge areas and the pool area, although small, is very nice (on the roof). Breakfast good, plenty of choice - only grumble would be that they should start breakfast at 7am to accommodate guests... More

This hotel is a medium sized boutique style hotel in the centre of Ponta del Garda. The situation of the hotel was excellent, and far better than some of the larger out of town hotels.The rooms are stylish, and well equipped, apart from electrical sockets, which were woefully scarce. No face flannel was provided, and housekeeping was a bit erratic,... More

We stayed here on two separate 4-day stopovers during a recent island-hopping jaunt in the Azores and were more than happy. The hotel is reasonably priced, ideally located close to most everything in Ponta and the staff are cheery and helpful. Best is that the hotel has the feel of a traditional European hotel, not some chain. Breakfasts were the... More

This was the last place we stayed in after spending two weeks in the Azores and it was a great place to end the trip at. Our favourite part was the roof-top pool and sunbathing area that overlooks the city and gets a great amount of sunshine. There is complimentary WiFi everywhere in the hotel and an early breakfast which... More

We first arrived in Ponta Delgada and checked into this hotel. We were travelling with my mother and two children (ages 5 and 8). We had reserved one cot so that one of the kids could stay in our room and one in my mother's room, however, our room was large enough to accommodate a second cot so that the... More

We stayed in room 226 for a week. Large room with balcony overlooking the park. Bathroom huge with large spa bath, separate shower, two wash hand basins. There is an unstocked minibar in the room which is great if you want to buy your own beers/ snacks/water. The building is very old with feature stair cases and lots of character.... More

This hotel welcomed us on our first trip to the Azores with a very helpful and friendly front desk staff. We had a rental car and they went through parking options (there was ample parking on street within a block of the hotel, but that may not be the case if its high season)` We ended up with a suite...
