We stayed here for 3 nights and enjoyed it very much. The location is just minutes from the center of Ponta Delgada and a number of restaurants. The staff was very friendly, and the public rooms have interesting period details. The breakfast buffet was outstanding, and had a variety of breads, cheeses, eggs, sausage and bacon, cereals, yogurt, tomatoes, cucumbers,... More

On our first night we were checked into a room that had no hot water, finding out the next day that this room does have a hot water problem regularly, so the staff was aware of the problem. however did not inform us at check in, perhaps there was no other choice on Dec.31. The replacement room was clean and... More

We were luck enough to stay at the Talisman for a week in January. We had Room 226 which, was spacious and clean with a huge bathroom and a large balcony overlooking a park. It had tea-making facilities and a mini fridge which we found convenient. The breakfast buffet was a great start to our day and the staff were... More

The Talisman is like stepping back in time, in a good way. The staff were so friendly and helpful, especially Fatima. I loved the old-world furnishings and décor and the restaurant food was great. A lovely place to unwind and catch up on some reading. The Azores are an old world gem, and its people just lovely. I'll be going... More

we booked in there last min after an overnight sailing trip fell through. Room is big and clean, service is good, location is central. We got a good last min deal which is great value. Hotel restaurant serves traditional Portuguese food.

Great location, but avoid the rooms overlooking the street with bars (inc. their own!) on a Fri & Sat. The Fri & Sat buffet is a good way of sampling local cuisine and represents excellent value. For a 4* hotel, I thought having to ask for the minibar be filled and then being charged regardless of whether you drank it... More

We spent a week in this very quaint hotel which is full of character and has a superb central location in the old town of Ponta Delgada. It is situated at one end of the Main Street so is close to shops and restaurants. We were in one of the old rooms and although I have to admit it was... More

A nice hotel with charm as it seems to be one of the older hotels in town. However hotel has been kept in a good standard. Had breakfast included and restaurant had a fine choice of dishes. Pool area was not that interesting and fitness area had many machines out of function. Room was nice and of acceptable size. Had... More
