Hotel Vila Nova is a Canadian owned hotel. It is ideally located if you like to walk. You are close to the marina, restaurants and downtown areas. It is about a 10 minute drive to the airport. Rooms on one side of the hotel has a tiny balcony, the other does not. Rooms are a typical 3 star hotel size.... More

She was very obliging and keen to help which made me feel welcome straight away. The hotel is 3 star and I got a... More

My only complaints, the wi-fi did not work work there in my room and I had to go downstairs to the bar. Also, I had... More

Close to the Largo de São Francisco this 3 star hotel is an excellent choice. Clean spacious rooms and friendly staff. A frigobar would be a nice addition, but the hotel does have a nice bar with a wide variety of drinks. If you hire a car there is free parking and for those who do not the hotel is... More

A classic business, yet comfortable and well located hotel. The staff was excelent, good breakfast and very clean and comfortable room. The only improvement point is the wifi access in the room. The hotel provides a cable however does not work on tables or cellphones.

I spent 6 nights at the very centrally located property in November. I requested and was granted an upper floor facing the front of the hotel which has a good view from a private veranda on the main avenue of the city. From the moment I walked in I felt very welcome by the extremely friendly staff who always responded... More
