I stayed here with some friends. This really is a superb hotel. Beautiful rooms, spotlessly clean. Breakfast was almost too good! And for evening meals by the end of the week we were having starters only we had eaten so much! It really is excellent value for money.

Visited the hotel in July 2016. From the moment I arrived to the moment I left, the staff were more than happy to help out with anything. The hotel has a restaurant which also had excellent service and great food too. I ate breakfast here everyday and went for my evening meal too some days and everything was cooked to... More

I booked this hotel as a surprise for my partners birthday, I have had to send quite a few e mails backwards and forwards and Carla has been excellent on sorting things out, we agreed on a bottle of fizz, cheese board and fruit with fondue which was fantastic and very reasonably priced. Taxis were ordered and were very efficient!... More

We were trying to figure out where to stay during our short visit to Sao Miguel and saw this on TripAdvisor along with a decent price and good reviews. Overall, we were very impressed. The service of the staff was phenomenal. There wasn't an issue that they weren't eager to help us out on (found us a rental car, locations... More

In Ponta Delgada for five nights, booked at Hotel Talisman by travel agent. Older property that's been expanded and upgraded over the years. Very convenient to the airport and an easy walk to the center of town, and shopping areas. Our room (130) had a full kitchen with refrigerator, range, and sink, but no utensils or plates. We did have... More

Stayed at the Talisman for 5 nights and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. It's an easy walk to all of the old town and many shops, a mall and restaurants, as well as the waterfront. Staff all speak English and are very helpful when needed. I had a wonderful room facing the park that's adjacent to the hotel on the top... More

In terms of the rooms themselves, this isn't a luxury property by any means, and in terms of furnishings and decor is not up to the standard of a three-star American business hotel. But the hotel has a lot of charm. The lobby is comfortable, the staff pleasant and helpful, and the daily buffet breakfast is a 7 on a... More

We stayed at the Talisman twice in a 2 week period, and both stays were delightful. The hotel is 2 blocks from the waterfront and right in downtown (such as it is in this small gem of a city). The common areas are pleasant and stately and the rooms comfortable. Since we stayed there twice, and with a group of... More

The Talisman is an exceptional hotel and very good value when booked through Travel Republic. The staff were very attentive, genuinely remembering you and anticipating your needs. Rooms are spacious, clean, well equipped and include an empty fridge and electric kettle. An electrical socket failed during our stay and this was fixed upon our return from a trip out -... More

The Hotel Talisman looks as if it is in a good location but could possibly suffer from traffic noise but we decided to ask for a tarrif and wanted to explore the possibility of dining in the restaurant. The rather arrogant receptionist did not have a tarriff but gave us a single sheet of paper about the hotel and was... More
