Have been there 4nights with a friend! Nice rooms....Not luxurious but very comfortable and clean! Simple breakfast but good for the cheap price! The best location possible....1min from Avenida do Mar (the main one)! I recommend it!

At the tourist information desk at the airport we've been advised this guesthouse in the center of funchal. Cheap rooms..25€ per day,with bathroom. The only problem were the ants and cockroaches..after one night they gave us another room,because of our request. At least the new one had no "guests" inside..

Very enjoyable stay... Amenities covers all of the basic needs. Staff was friendly and we would be happy to stay here again.The rooms were cleaned on a daily basis, It's in an ideal position for holiday makers as the sites and restaurants are pretty much on your door step. As for value €24 a night is as cheap as it... More

Service = warm, friendly and efficient from helpful staff (e.g. let me change rooms no questions asked.) Value = at €24 per night, this is a bargain, given its location. Sleep quality = poor in courtyard rooms (noise magnified from reception area) and front (from adjacent bar.) Might be better in side rooms. Cleanliness = spotless, quite an achievement in... More

Great place to stay, in the middle of it all. Way better than the hotel zone. Everything is couple of minutes walk away. Clean, relatively well equipped, safe. Spent there three days, very happy with it.

I stayed here recently for a few weeks and chose it specifically because the reviews were more good than bad, but primarily because it was inexpensive. Sadly, as in most cases, the good things are simply stated and taken for granted, but bad things become glaring by comparison. Don't give more weight to the negative just because I added comments,...

If you are looking for a budget accomodation, you need to look no more. Residencial Zarco is situated in the centre of Funchal, so it is close to all major attractions (old town, port, funicular line to Monte, bus stations etc), and also just a few steps away from many restaurants and bars. The service is nice, everyone is friendly... More

This hotel is just the place to stay if exploring Funchal and the Madeira island is what you go for. I just stayed two night at Zarco, but pretty sure I will use it more next time I go to Madeira. Reasonably clean and maintained (though bathroom could need slight upgrade...) Basic, good breakfast. And the staff always very kind... More
