Good hotel in great location. We had a room overlooking the garden which was very quiet. Good sized, very clean room. All staff were very professional and friendly. Breakfast was really good (managed to avoid the dreaded waffle machine - i don't understand this fetish!). Had two evenng meals at the hotel. Both really good but service wss a bit... More

We just returned from a week staying at the Hotel Talisman in Ponta Delgada. It was just perfect for us in all ways -- a charming hotel in a great location, terrific service from the staff (special kudos and thanks to Vania, who could not have been more helpful in offering suggestions for things to do and making arrangements for...

Conveniently located within walking distance of all attractions, shops and restaurant. Noise from the street and the restaurant was somewhat of a problem at night. The hotel has a very convoluted layout with several hallways and steps. The hallways are lit by motion-activated sensor lights which don't always turn on promptly or at all; it can quite dangerous because of... More

This is the nicest hotel we have stayed at for the price we paid! We had the entire third floor to ourselves. Low ceiling warning for part of the floor as well as have to haul the luggage up the stairs as it is not elevator accessible, but these are minor complaints. This floor does not have a balcony either... More

I booked my flight ahead of time and had an extra night in the island, so I decided to spend it in Ponta Delgada. Going through the Hotels they all seemed without any character... Talisman hotel is the exception. Historical building right in the center with a small but very nice pool on the top floor with panoramic views. Private... More

We had 3 nights here as part of a holiday on Sao Miguel having arrived a day late after an unexpected diversion to Terceira. We stayed in the suite which had a juliet balcony overlooking the gardens. The suite was spacious with beautiful polished wooden floors. The sitting room doubled up as single bedroom and was very comfortable. Although there... More

Hotel Talisman is in a great location - walking distance to restaurants, the water and everything else you want in Ponta Delgada, while still being in a quiet stretch of the city. It's not super modern, but it's updated and has a nice eclectic feel _ definitely not a cookie cutter chain hotel. Breakfast is good and varied, as well... More

July 2016 our family visited Sao Miguel and stayed at this centrally located hotel. The food was very good and our stay included a hot breakfast that was suitable for even our very picky 11 year old. The view from the hotel roof pool was excellent at night and the staff were so helpful and friendly. You can walk to... More
