This was a beautiful hotel within easy walking distance of shopping and restaurants. A very nice breakfast was included with our room. They even packed us a breakfast to go when we needed to check-out prior to breakfast opening.

We had a good stay at Hotel Talisman. The best part was that we arrived in Ponta Delgada very early in the morning, and by 10 am they kindly had a room ready for us so we could have a little rest before heading out to explore the city. You're very close to the central square and all of the... More

We spent 3 nights at Hotel Talisman this past week. For location, I don't know if it gets any better. You are steps away from restaurants, bars, shops etc and only a couple streets from the waterfront. The hotel staff was also very courteous and helpful - and given our Portuguese is extremely limited, they spoke great English. Our room... More

Carla (the manager) and her team worked very hard for us throughout our stay. Having arrived with gastric flu, our room was made available at 10.30am, and our requests for additional towels and toiletries were always met with a smile. Our room was large, spacious and had a balcony overlooking the square. It was a bargain at 49 euros a... More

Stayed at Hotel Talisman for 2 nights. I would say the hotel has seen better days. Everything was a bit dated and dowdy and I would say the service and the quality of the rooms and breakfast was average at best. The price we paid did not seem like good value. The hotel staff was fine but not very helpful,... More

2 days in ponta delgada. Hotel is slightly old fashioned. We dined in for one evening and found the menu a bit restricted. Room was comfortable not especially large but adequate. Helpful staff and a great location in the centre of town.

Very rare for photos to match the experience. This was the exception! We visited the Azores in April 2016. We needed a rest and change of pace/scenery. This hotel and Island fit both criteria. The Island is spectacular. We took one day trip and saw views that looked like they were special effects in films. We also went whale watching... More

We've revisited Hotel Talisman in Ponta Delgada, Azores, Portugal and loved it even more. Small comfy hotel with different rooms, excellent breakfasts where nothing more is needed. You must ask the staff to make waffles with melted chocolate. A must is also the fresh pineapple juice! Can't get enough! Anything you need the staff will provide. Such wonderfully helpful ladies...

3 of us stayed here for a week while we explored the island. The hotel was clean, comfortable and friendly. Contrary to other reviews the breakfast was good with a good selection of cereals, breads, meats, cheeses, cakes and the usual cooked variety every day. The only issues for me was that the fruit juice was not fresh, probably tinned... More

Very pleasant and accommodating front desk staff. We arrived at 8 am on a wet October morning. The front desk staff made sure our room was the first cleaned and was available by 10. The room was large, clean and well appointed. The hotel is centrally located allowing easy access to restaurants and to wander. The front desk was helpful... More
