I can honestly say that this well managed small hotel delivers on virtually all counts and the photos are not deceiving! The hotel is excellently placed, only 5-10 minutes walk from the centre of all restaurants and amenities in Funchal. A very reasonably priced hotel for its position, the quality of rooms and self-service breakfast and the friendly high quality... More

The bartenders need more training. Didn't mix good drinks at all and didn't seem to know what they were doing. The breakfast was disappointing to put it nicely. Wet soggy sausages, only one kind of yogurt (and it tasted sour), sour milk that had gone bad, overcooked hard boiled eggs. No real healthy breakfast options. Would be nice if they... More

Great location between the old and new parts of the city center, everything is in walking distance! Good, clean and spacious rooms. No air-conditioning, but didn't miss it due to a powerful fan in the room. Nice rooftop terrace and swimming pool. Breakfast is very complete and tasty (only downside: the coffee from the machine is very weak). The staff... More

This is a good hotel in a good location for exploring Funchal, walking distance from shops and places to eat. Nice, friendly staff. Didn't spend a lot of time in the hotel as we were out exploring, but ideal and easy to walk back to from the town and have a comfortable nights sleep

Friendly, cheerful and helpful staff, mix up with our room on arrival, no fault of the hotel, this was sorted immediately and we could go to the room even though check in wasn't until 2.00. The rooms are cleaned everyday, had a tele so not sure why people are bothered about having wifi in room? I didn't mind going the... More

We have stayed on this hotel some years, and of course there is a clear reason for this. The most important cause is the very gently and nice staff, who really wants the best for their guests. Also we want to credit the cleanliness in the rooms. Our more negative reflections may some people find a little pedantic, but they... More

Breakfast buffet is better than average, and the staff i very helpful (they all speak english). Only thing missing is wifi in the rooms, you have to go to the lobby or the bar to experience... More

Excellent 3 star hotel in great location for accessing Funchal by foot. We spent a weekend here having emailed the hotel in advance to request twin rooms and to advise of our time of arrival. They responded very promptly and were able to meet our request and when we did arrive the reception staff were also fully aware of our... More

I was going to write a long review, but DoraandNigel have covered most of it already (see their review below). In short, friendly and very helpful staff, comfortable clean rooms, and superb location. A really good base for exploring Funchal on foot. The harbour, marina, cable car and bus termini are within an easy 5-10 minutes walk. Countless places to... More
