There's nothing really special about this hotel.. The rooms are dated although really clean and the stay is a great price for a decent location. It's a tad out of the city but truly only a 10 minute walk to it.. This hotel is probably the closest to the airport also if that's important to you. The breakfast in the... More

Just came back from a 5 night stay at Hotel Vila Nova. The rooms are basic, but fairly clean. It is a loud hotel and you can hear EVERYTHING, including the planes. The breakfast is not good and they serve the same thing everyday. The location is good, the staff was great, but the food and atmosphere were not. Went... More

Let's start with the bath room. 1 The tub did not drain properly so while taking a shower your ankle deep in water when I reported it maintenance came to check ran a little water and... More

We stayed here 7 nights and highly recommend this hotel if you are looking for very friendly and helpful staff, good breakfast selection, clean, comfortable accommodations, and great location. We had an ocean view and it was only a short 10 minutes (very pleasant walk) to the town centre and marina area - easy access to many of good food... More

We stayed here for three nights while on a walking holiday in the Azores. The room was very nice, with a very good bathroom. Staff were very friendly, and the breakfast was excellent. It is not in the best part of town, but is not far to walk to the centre.

I stayed 2 nights on a business trip in Vila Nova Hotel. The rooms are spacy and clean, but the furniture is a bit old fashioned. Bathroom well mantained. Very small TV, but offering more then 70 channels. No minibar or coffee maker in the room. Hotel is situated very close to the airport (but few air traffic), and also... More

We stayed during low low season 7 nights at Hotel Vila Nova - Ponta Delgada. Excellent value for money, comfortable room/bathroom with all amenities. WiFi was better in the bathroom then in the room itself on the 4th floor. Balcony was on the south. When you have a car, can recommend the use of the protected parking lot. Although hotel... More

Excellent value. The staff were all friendly, helpful and spoke English. Great location, 5-10 minute walk from the center of town and a great view of the ocean, ask for a view of the marina. The bar, and room service had great hours. The breakfast buffet had a good and varied selection.
