Been staying at the Talisman while working in Ponta Delgada. Staff could not be more helpful and the room is excellent. Well placed for town and would definitely recommend the hotel. Food is good at hotel but many other fun places to eat within walking distance.

I hate to write a bad review, but if this is the best hotel in Ponta delgada, I really don't want to see the others.. We went to Azores for our honey moon, and got the smallest and darkest room they had. It was located right next to the elevator and as all it had was a bed, closet and... More

I have stayed at the Hotel Talisman three times and it has become my preferred hotel in Ponta Delgada. The rooms are affordable, quite nice with many having city views, breakfast is served each morning, and the staff could not be nicer. It is a classic small European hotel with the cozy feel of mainland Europe in the islands of... More

We had the suits, so I cannot review the regular rooms, but it is enough to see the other four stars hotels in Ponta Delgada to know that this one is the best. The hotel certainly got an atmosphire and is quite unique. It is not a factory made one like the others you see from the promanande. The staff... More

I cannot recommend this hotel enough! Staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. Rooms were spacious, clean, fridge in room. The breakfast was superb with hot and cold choices and everything you might require (even a waffle maker!). We ate in the restaurant twice (buffet and a la carte) - both very good and excellent prices. The buffet included all your... More

This is a reasonably priced, very central 4-star hotel, situated on a pretty square. Stayed in a comfortable suite for 4 nights. Breakfast was good and filling. Rooftop provides views of city. Front desk staff were extremely helpful and very courteous. The place has a good atmosphere--olde worlde. Short walk to main squares. Highly recommended. Would definitely go back.

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
