This hotel's location is excellent as it's in the middle of the city where one can walk easily walk to restaurants, shops and other attractions. This was our second time staying at Talisman - room was excellent with balcony overlooking garden. The breakfast was disappointing as it's very basic and same thing each day. You would think they could alter... More

It is good hotel, nothing special, good standard rooms. it could and should be better. Somehow it seemed it lacks good management. You request for a an early check in. No response. You request for a quiet room. You get probably the noisiest room, near the hotel restaurant. You ask for a map of the town. Sure you get one,... More

We spent several nights here. Our room overlooked the main square and while we enjoyed the view over the square it did tend to be noisy from tire noise on the cobbles and from Saturday night fun. The rooms are well appointed, the breakfasts excellent and the staff friendly and attentive. The central location of the hotel close to the... More

Probably the most comfortable bed ever! Nice room & sitting area. Helpful, friendly staff. Really bad food in the restaurant (the buffet looked most unappetising, so we went a la carte which was possibly the worst food ever - they did apologise!). As soon as we said we were leaving at 6.45am, they said they'd provide a cold breakfast (sandwich,... More

This hotel Is located in the historic part of Ponta Delgada. It is a very nice property with lovely rooms and staff. We only stayed one night but if I have a chance I would stay again. The only negative was it was a little noisy at night from the street. This might be fixed by asking for a room... More

Hotel Talisman has a great location for exploring central Ponta Delgada. The various main squares and churches are all within walking distance. We spent 2 nights and never missed not having a car. The staff was very helpful, even when we checked in very early after a red-eye flight. The hotel was clean, room was spacious and comfortable and the... More

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
