We chose this hotel for its small number rooms (16) over 4 floors and its central location. The décor is very modern and predominantly black! Sounds dark but actually works very well with the added lights (that look like wood shavings!) and wonderful metallic dishes on the walls. It grew on me! The staff were not only courteous, friendly but...

We came here from Quinta Mirabela having not realised that they were sister hotels until we spotted both hotel logos on the courtesy bus. So we had door to door treatment via the courtesy bus which was brilliant as the Funchal Design Hotel is kind of hard to find on first arrival. We were even greeted by the same receptionist...

Me and my boyfriend visited the hotel for one night with bed and breakfast basis. The room is very modern but at the same time small. The bedroom and bathroom is divided by glass door so it is transparent. I wouldn´t recommend for family or friends that are traveling together. The hotel provides toiletries and hair dryer which is very...

We only booked one nights b&b but on arrival we were upgraded to a self catering apartment with a compact kitchenette and basic appliances. The bedroom area was separate and was nice and spacious with a lovely big bed. The bathroom was a beautifully fitted wet room and we were very impressed by how stylish everything was. Breakfast was very...

I have spent one week in september and I must confess that I was pleased with the services provided by the members of the staff : twin sisters (Sarah and Sandra) at the reception desk and especially Nelson in the restaurant. O.K. - the room is pretty small for this standard but everything else is just about right - after...

My wife and I have just returned from a week in Madeira where we stayed at this hotel. Have to say could find little to fault. Modern and stylist, very much a boutique hotel if that appeals to you. We had a top floor room which was smart, clean, well equipped and of a good size. Service was excellent, with...

Stayed here for 5 nights for our honeymoon. Small but clean room, lovely bathroom. We were on the top floor, which had great views out over the old part of Funchal. Brilliant location for the marina, the old part of Funchal and lots of restaurants. Hotel restaurant was nice too, reasonably priced. Staff could not have been more helpful or...

We stayed three days in Madeira for a business trip. TAP Portugal airlines was providing their standard, surly, inferior service, so we arrived at 2:30AM in FNC. Hertz had already closed and we ended taking a taxi for Euro 50 to FNC. We woke up the night portier and he gave us a room. We had room 104 which was...

Small city hotel, very close to centre of Funchal, where much black paint has been employed (they should change this - black decor is dated in any case, and gloom is not great), presumably to justify 'Design' in the hotel name. Room was fine but could have done with small fridge/mini-bar. Breakfast fine apart from terrible croissants. Wi-fi available only...
