A good hotel. Friendly staff, good bed, good breakfast. It's certainly a question of personal taste whether you're appalled by the black walls or whether you appreciate the being warmy enclosed by the rather somber design. I felt fine with it after a short while of getting used to the unusual look. The hotel is well situated some hundred meters... More

This hotel is great value for money.. we stayed here for only 1 night but it was a fantastic quirky room and very posh! Im not sure its somewhere you would want to spend the week but it is fantastic for a couple of nights!

This hotel is conveniently located close to Funchal dowtown (two steps from Dolce Vita shopping mall) and offers a good price / quality ratio. It's modern and conceptually designed and the only drawback is that the predominant colour is black, which makes the interior, especially the bathroom, very dark. Nevertheless, our room was spacious, with all ammenities even a kitchenette,... More

We stayed here for 5 nights at the end of February and were well pleased with our choice of hotel. Very modern design which might be a bit quirky for some. Comfortable firm bed. Clean rooms with good shower. Helpful staff. Continental breakfast was adequate and cooked bacon and eggs could also be ordered. No wi-fi in rooms but available... More

We stayed here for a week in February. Good central location. It is a very small hotel which is very clean and modern design. There are only 16 rooms. Our room was small but well presented, although very dark. We would have preferred more privacy in the bathroom and toilet which have transparent glass doors which do not stay shut.... More

We chose this hotel for its small number rooms (16) over 4 floors and its central location. The décor is very modern and predominantly black! Sounds dark but actually works very well with the added lights (that look like wood shavings!) and wonderful metallic dishes on the walls. It grew on me! The staff were not only courteous, friendly but... More

We came here from Quinta Mirabela having not realised that they were sister hotels until we spotted both hotel logos on the courtesy bus. So we had door to door treatment via the courtesy bus which was brilliant as the Funchal Design Hotel is kind of hard to find on first arrival. We were even greeted by the same receptionist... More

Me and my boyfriend visited the hotel for one night with bed and breakfast basis. The room is very modern but at the same time small. The bedroom and bathroom is divided by glass door so it is transparent. I wouldn´t recommend for family or friends that are traveling together. The hotel provides toiletries and hair dryer which is very... More

We only booked one nights b&b but on arrival we were upgraded to a self catering apartment with a compact kitchenette and basic appliances. The bedroom area was separate and was nice and spacious with a lovely big bed. The bathroom was a beautifully fitted wet room and we were very impressed by how stylish everything was. Breakfast was very... More
