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 and although the windows are double glazed and keep out the noise from outside the walls are thin and you can hear the people next door.
The breakfast was very good with plenty of choice (hot & cold) served in the restaurant on the top floor with fantastic views of Funchal. Free WiFi in the lobby area was a good speed but none in the rooms. There was no bar in the hotel where you could have a late drink before bed, just a cafe at the front which seemed to close early evening. The staff on reception were friendly and helpfull and overall the hotel is very good value.
