“Great location!!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013 via mobile

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 gets. We found it very useful to have our own microwave and fridge giving us the option to dine in or out. With the additional balcony it gave us the option to enjoy the evening with a glass of wine!

arrived in funchal end of may prebooked this so called hotel well the reception is small and clustered the owner was working on something in that area I was shown to my room on the same level as the reception area thats the first floor no lift located right next to the main doors to hotel and reception noisy all night long the room very basic indeed the floor was sloping down like being at the top of a hill the floor was in need of repair deparately the shower and toilet were disgusting full of mold when you showered the water ran out into the bedroom the towels needed a wash could not stop the tap it was a disgrace the worst i have stayed in the morning at breakfast you were served with one coffee and a juice after that you had to pay for any extra you got your breakfast in a bag containing one piece of bread a butter and a jam no cereal nothing else had better in police cells the view from the window was of a square which was load at night the only good thing i can say is there is a bar underneath which is not connected to the hotel were you can get a good breakfast

Room Tip: stay away if you can but the best are the front

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 an old building full of character.
Location = city centre, unsurpassable.
Rooms = full of charm in this traditional Madeiran building, so much more pleasant than a modern, purpose-built slab hotel but, sadly, lacking the latter's sound-proofing in rooms.
Overall, would not return as do not enjoy resorting to ear plugs to achieve my prime need from a hotel; sleep.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms opening on to the noisy courtyard, or at the front of the hotel above the neighbouring b...

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.

Room Tip: Rooms with double bed have great views to the a beautiful square.
