We chose Vila Nova for the last 3 nights of our 12 day trip on Sao Miguel. The hotel is at walking distance to the marina - easy for doing whale-watching tours, next to the highway heading to the west, north and north east of the island, and 7 minutes to the airport. That being said, we really hear and... More

I only booked for one night, based on proximity to the airport. It is all the way at the end of town, so it was easy to walk, but further then it needed to be. I was under the impression that there would be wifi, but it really only worked in the public areas. I had thought about staying more... More

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

I always say first impressions count and in this case it was very true. I arrived late one night and the lovely receptionist managed to book 2 days of tours starting first thing the next morning. 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

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 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.
