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...

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

Came here for one night only on business, hotel chosen by company so unclear on cost. Rooms clean and comfortable. Free wifi in lobby. My only criticism was the basic evening meal. Charged for tap water (only £1 but a bit penny pinching). Breakfast much better. Reception friendly.

We picked a hotel in central Funchal, not requiring a noisy pool-area or a boulevard of souvenir outlets. And Hotel Orquídea turned out to be perfect. A modern building with rooms, large enough to breathe in, with a small balcony with two chairs, aircondition and a fine bathroom. The breakfast in the 6th floor restaurant was more than adequate and... More

Good location. Rooms better than expected for the 3 star price. Everywhere clean and staff helpful. Breakfast basic and the quality of the evening meal reflected its bargain price, but I would recommend the excellent BonFix restaurant just along the road. No pool, no bar in evening. Good views across Funchal from the rooftop terrace. All in all very good... More

Finding the hotel by car is not easy with all the one-way streets in Funchal. Also this hotel is located close to one of the main roads, but on a small one-way street, not far from the downtown area (about 5-10 min on foot). The hotel lobby and the restaurant are decorated in a modern, tasteful fashion, but the rooms... More

I loved this hotel for many reasons: it is downtown, it has good breakfast, the price is acceptable and most of all, the receptionsists were so friendly and complaisant. I had so many questions and all of their answers and tips were useful. You have a wi-fi connection as well as a free of charge access to a computer.

Booked in for a week. Fifth floor room with limited sea views available from balcony.(Lower floors don't have sea view). Room of reasonably good standard, if basic in some respects. Very good aircon, adjustable. Let down slightly by badly crazed wash-basin surface and battle-scarred net curtains where shut in balcony door in the past. Could overlook these short-comings however as... More
