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

I stayed at this Hotel in Sept/14, it's at a great location, has a good BF., the rooms are a bit on the simple side, street is pretty noisy. There are lot's of guests from Sweden and England, they come in big groups, have dinner included, and, pay way less than Guests that book over the regular Booking sites, you... 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

We couldn't have asked for a better location in the city. The staff were very accommodating, allowing us to check in early at 8am. Good wifi signal in the room. Very nice rooftop pool. The room itself was okay, but we didn't spend much time there so it did the trick. Breakfast buffet was quite good as well.

Was an ideal central location, very accommodating staff with excellent English skills. The car rental is nearby, reception gives valuable tips on how to arrange best parking, gives out towel (on refundable deposit) for use when you head to bathes in the hot springs. Have an early flight out and the hotel arranges early breakfast box.

Very clean and the bed was also very comfortable. The staff was friendly and always willing to help with any request we needed. Breakfast was included, nice but mostly the same every day, they need to switch it up a bit. All in all, nice place and I will stay there again. Jack Ferreira Cape Cod MA.

Right near the center of town this hotel is situated on a bend in the road that causes drivers to break hard and thus the tires squeal all the time. Combined with the fact that my room 104 was directly above the hotel entryway meant I heard the taxis, buses and new or departing guests all the time. The room... More

I enjoy the island of St. Michael and the Hotel Talisman so much that yesterday I booked my third trip in a year and a half. April will not come soon enough! The island is gorgeous, the hotel is comfortable, clean and well appointed - they have a great breakfast buffet which is included.
