We booked here by coincidence as we needed accommodation for only one night in town before a quite early flight home. The hotel is a real design gem with original early 20th century features. Recommend to book the room with balcony towards the cathedral, really nice view! But there might be some noise from returning clubbers in the night.

Got a twin room on the 5th floor after our flight was cancelled. Was pleasantly surprised how clean and comfortable the room was and it also had a nice balcony with a view of the city. Breakfast was basic but very nice and the receptionist was very helpful and couldn't have done more for us. Would recommend.

We stayed here for 3 nights. On the first night, we arrived late and were given a terrible room but as we were tired we stayed in it but asked to be moved the following morning. Then we were given a good room on the top floor, this room was good and we had 2 comfortable nights there. We enjoyed... More

We stayed here our last night in Funchal and it was a bargain. Yes- the lobby reminds one of Twin Peaks and the room furniture has definitely been better days, but we still enjoyed sipping wine on our terrace as the sunset behind the cathedral. The AC dripped and the show curtain was falling off the wall. You get the... More

We had a room on the first floor with a balcony that looked out onto the streets of Madeira. Lovely view. The hotel was very clean and in a great location the staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast was good. It provided a continental style and some hot food. The bread and rolls were fresh and very tasty. I... More

We always stay on an extra few days after a time share visit to take advantage of lower weekday non peak air fares...usually in central Funchal....tons of restaurants...shops...bars.. cafes.The premise being that the accommodation cost is amply within the saving from lower non peak fare. This hotel is a little gem. Right by the Cathedral...the clock bells usually turned off... More

This hotel was such a disappointment. We stayed here for 3 nights. The reception team were very rude all the time we were there. They are not very helpful. You don't get a "do not disturb" sign therefore we asked reception if we could cancel housekeeping as we wanted to have a lie in one morning and they said this... More

As the name suggests, the hotel is directly opposite the cathedral and is thus ideally located with easy access to Funchal's main sights, transport links, bars, restaurants and shops. Our room was of decent size and comfort, and surprisingly quiet, with even the cathedral bells making little impression. Reception staff were friendly and efficient. Buffet breakfast included hot and cold... More

We spent a very enjoyable week here. The hotel is simple but comfortable and kept very clean by the hard-working maid/cook. A decent, ample and well-cooked breakfast was part of the low cost stay. All the staff were very friendly, helpful and willing to get involved in any way to make our stay in Funchal really pleasant and memorable. The... More
