Friend and I stayed in the early September 2013 for a week. First of all, with the price we got (last minute deal though) it was very reasonable, one would have to pay more for many hostel dorm beds around Europe. We did not meet the reception people except once during our stay which I found funny but did not... More

The Americana is a simple pension centrally located in the center of Funchal, 100m to Marina and the bus stops. 10 simple-furnished rooms on 2nd and 3rd floor, no elevator. Beds and facilities are ok, we had one of the front rooms with a tiny balcony with a nice view to the square. The bath has been refurbished. One thing... More

Wife and I stayed for a week in January 2012. Upside: Great location at reasonable cost. Comfortable, clean room serviced daily, towels changed whenever required. Small fridge, kettle and cups provided in room. Ample breakfasts. Flat screen sat-TV (wife caught up with last year's Eastenders that she had missed.....). Safe in room. Midside: Medium sized room, small shower cubicle in... More

Like most of us, I have stopped in some good hotels (with family or work) and some cheap hotels (stag do's & lads' trips). This is head and shoulders the worst I have EVER stopped in. It absolutely stinks, hasn't had a cent spent on it in decades and the bathroom ceiling was so damp and filthy I had to... More

This small property is very central in the heart of old Funchal. Very close to the Cathedral. Old Portugese house with high ceilings. You have a key to the front door at street level and another for your bedroom. On first arrival you press an entrance button and an intercom will ask you for your name, once they have established...

Residencial Americana is situated in the center of Funchal, right next to Cathedral Se. It has 2 buildings and the one our studio was in has elevator so we had no problems with the stairs. The apartment was basic and it had no coffee/tea machine as it was written in the description.

This was excellent value for money and brilliantly central opposite the cathedral. Smack in the middle of everything. We had a self-contained apartment and could cook our own food. After visiting the rest of the city, we could not have picked better location. I would have chosen this hotel again. Tiny warning - only trouble in winter (it rained nearly... More
