Good hotel but not a 4 star! Large room, good beds, and spacious bathroom. Very clean, walking distance from centre of the city. But not a 4 star as it does not have a fridge or coffee/tea facilities; I find this imperative before you can rate a hotel 4 stars. Also, be aware they do not have a Disco/loud music... More

This hotel is right in the centre of Funchal, great if you want to have restaurants, the old town, the market, museums and bus stations within short walking distances. The hotel is clean, breakfast was good (except the rather horrible coffee), dinner was adequate but nothing to write home about. The receptionist was extremely helpful in finding out about concerts,... More

Excellent location in Funchal town, maximum 10 minutes walk to sea front, old town and shopping areas. Bedroom was reasonable size and well furnished. Also sizeable balcony Bathrooms are a little too small and one had to squeeze out as door could not be fully opened as it hit toilet. Breakfast was also highly acceptable. We did not eat in... More

I never had the evening meal, thanks to the TA reviewers. Breakfast was the same everyday, no variation. Room was clean, CRT television had some watchable channels. As others have remarked, Internet was useless in the room but was ok in reception area. They charged me 20 euros for hiring a fridge for the week. The saving grace is being... More

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
