We spent 4 days on this hotel in july 2013, and what we found is that it is a simple hotel that's well located (transports/restaurants/bars/small urban beach), and with na extra of 5/6€ they can open a small kitchenette (eqquiped with almost all tools you need) that allows you to buy food and cook yourself. The staff was ok and... More

Never have I ever been more disgusted with a hotel ever. I go on at least 6 holidays a year ranging from weekends to 6 weeks. Thank goodness this was only a weekend. We were called liars more than once

We were dreading our stay here having read the reviews the day before leaving home but hotel was better on the inside than from outside. It looked boarded up from outside and whole place needs a revamp. Food simple and acceptable although same breakfast & dessert each day became monotonous. Swimming pool unusable and looked filthy. This could become a... More

The best thing about this hotel was the price: 31€ per night in a single room with private bathroom (plus 6€ for the breakfast, only the days I had it). It is located in the Lido area of Funchal, a bit far from the center but close to the beaches (although these are not sand beaches but rocks or even... More

I know this hotel is in need of an update, redecoration etc. but really a lot better than I thought it would be after reading some of the reviews! The hotel itself was very clean, the staff very helpful and friendly, and the evening meals were varied and delicious. Breakfast was not too bad, plenty of lovely fruit and bread... More

Considered staying there as it appeared to be quite cheap, glad we looked first. It's in a really good situation in the centre of the Funchal tourist area. However, it's the ugliest building in Madeira. The exterior is unpainted raw concrete and the cladding is what appears to be blue bathroom tiles! It just has to be seen to be... More

Seriously this hotel is a joke. We have booked months ago, because we earn a good deal hotel+fly. When wet arrived to the hotel the first impression wad not good at all, but we were thinking maybe is a impression, but when we went to the room it was horrible, really dusty, the tv small and from 70's, no pillows,...
