Very pleased with our room....nice furnishings and appointments....large by European standards. Lighting over the mirror in bathroom too dim for these old eyes but we made do. The included breakfast was a buffet....nothing particularly special...really bad coffee....but much better than having to go out every morning to find a restaurant that would be open. We had a couple of suppers... More

Nice hotel with a great location. Close to the waterfront, restaurants and the airport. Staff is very helpful and will recommend restaurants where the locals eat, not the tourist traps. Decent restaurant and pub attached. Recommend staying in a room on the garden/restaurant terrace side. The other side has suites but can be very noisy due to the street below.

The Staff here are friendly, approachable and helpful. The room was a good size with bath and shower, free safe, local tea, small balcony and flat screen tv with international channels. The staff here are able to organise excursions and provide maps and advice on the surrounding area. They also arranged taxi transportation to and from the airport for 10... More

Location is perfect within the city perimeter. Ten minutes from the airport. It is next to the public garden and the sky- blue - white government building. Five minutes to the waterfront of Ponta Delgada. Shops are within a walking distance. Parque Atlantico shopping mall is a 10 minute walk.Friendly personeel, reception and restaurant. Colonial interior setting. Spacious restaurant setting.... More

My wife and I stayed at the Talisman for two weeks in December 2015, over Christmas and New Year. Location - Ideal: Just 15 minutes from the airport and fairly easy to find, the hotel is just in to a pedestrianised area but this does not prevent a taxi (or you if you hire a car) from stopping at the...

Friendly staff, excellent location, decent sized clean rooms, fast wifi... What more do you want? Seems I have to write more to satisfy the bone heads at trip advisor, so here goes nothing... Brevity is clearly NOT the soul of trip advisor who insist on inane ramblings...

Hotel Talisman is in the perfect location. The shops and restaurants are all very close, yet the street outside the hotel is quiet. The only downfall is there is no sea view but the rooftop pool, European charm, fantastic restaurant, location, helpful staff, and modern amenities, more than make up for it.

Clean, charming but a solid 3 in our book. King bed was 2 twins joined by a sheet. Strong wifi, week TV reception. Restaurant was busy that evening with locals, a party and some hotel guests, food average. Breakfast average. Surprisingly few options in this Town if this is the Trip Advisor #1 rated,

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay here. It's located in the center of town and only a 15 minute walk to a big mall, and just minutes from all sorts of shops and boutiques. It rained the entire time we were here, so we decided to get massages! The hotel offered us a therapist who comes and he... More

This hotel had some great things about it; the location, the friendly front desk, and the clean rooms. We were overjoyed when we were able to check in extra early (our flight arrived at 7 am but we were not to check in until the afternoon). They had our room ready within an hour and a half of our arrival!... More
