Good location 5 minutes from Funchal sea front. Clean, Comfortable, friendly & helpful staff with 12 noon check out. Breakfast good, Dinner repetitive & not varied. I will stay again next year but may skip dinner.

We stayed here for nine nights as part of a package walking holiday. We found the staff to be very helpful and attentive. The hotel was clean and comfortable. However, the main course of the evening meal was disappointing - soups and salads were very good as were the puddings. The main course lacked choice and the (frozen) vegetables were... More

Two nights in the hotel proved better than expected. The hotel is a 3 stars, but my room was large and the staff is nice. For me the strong point of this hotel is the location and the view. It's placed in the center of Funchal and it's possible to visit most of the city by foot, which is a... More

I stayed in Hotel Orquidea on Nov 26th - 27th. The best thing about this hotel is that, most of the tourist attractions are walking distance... Loved that part of it. The rooms of the hotel are far from desirable, probably you have another options, it should be considered. I had stained carpet, black ants in the bath room and... More

Stayed here on a B & B basis. A no frills hotel that met our needs. Room was very clean and fairly spacious. Tele although an old model had plenty of channels in English with Portuguese subtitles. We did find the dining area a bit chaotic in the mornings. The food/drinks area is just not big enough when the hotel... More

The best part of the hotel is the location, it is quite central. The terrace on top is also nice. Very friendly service at the reception, but very slow service at breakfast (twice I had to carry other people's dirty dishes away in order to have a place to sit down for breakfast) and they ran out of some things...

Dear Sir / Madame, Thank very much for your comments abouts us. In fact the breakfast service was slow than usual on that days due the high occupancy (100%), we ask apologies for that and we will try to improve the service on these occasions. Unfortunately the reception desk was no able to offer you a more quiet room due... More

Stayed for a week on bed and breakfast. The hotel is very well positioned in the centre of Funchal close to the bars, shops, restaurants and sea front (which at the moment is a total mess due to all the building works) The room on the 4th floor was very spacious and clean with a balcony overlooking the building opposite...

Good hotel at a good price. You can see the sea from the roof, where there is a sun terrace. No swimming pool though, if that is what you are after, and non near. But we chose it for it's location. Breakfast is good. Beds are a bit hard but ok. No wi-fi in bedrooms. Air conditioning great. Only downer... More
