We booked here very last minute, after the Covid rules changed, meaning we could no longer go on our originally booked holiday to Turkey. We therefore needed somewhere cheap. For what we paid per night for B&B, there isn’t much we can fault. Sure the hotel is very outdated, so if you’re after even the most normally-available mod-cons (see below), you might want to look elsewhere. But the staff were welcoming, even at a time (end of season, global pandemic) when there were very few guests. They wore masks as per Covid restrictions, and hand sanitiser was available as you entered the hotel. Communal areas were kept very clean. The rooms are VERY basic, but clean, and serviced daily. We had a 3rd floor sea view room with balcony. Our room had the minimum of furniture, a small fridge, coat hangers & towels provided, three plug sockets (one of which had the fridge plugged in), and an over-bath shower. We had to run the shower for several minutes before we got any hot water, and in the mornings the bathroom sink drain smelled bad. There was no air conditioning or fan, no kettle or cups. For the price and rating of the hotel, I guess this is not unexpected, and we’d read other reviews on here so we were prepared, and took our own travel kettle and fan. If you can get to sleep with the balcony door open then great, but the road outside is pretty noisy (more from vehicle engines and tyres bumping over drain covers, than music / chatter from nearby bars & restaurants, although there was some of this too). I’m not sure we could have slept through it, plus we didn’t want to risk any mosquitos getting in. (We didn’t see any, but they find me delicious so I’m very cautious!) Our little portable fan made sleeping just about bearable. Breakfast was the same each day, served at the table, rather than a buffet. A banana, a fresh crusty white bread roll, and a sweet brioche roll - both a really good size - butter and jam, a jug of fruit juice (generic tropical juice, we think), and a choice of coffee, tea, or hot chocolate. The coffee was strong, and hot milk was provided. Hubby enjoyed his hot chocolates. We didn’t sample the tea. It got a bit repetitive by the end of our week’s stay, but again, for the room price, it was decent. The hotel has a couple of rooftop terraces with places to sit. We just popped up once to look at the view. There is no car parking on site. The part of the road with the hotel on is one-way; the road going in the opposite direction is parallel to it, down the hill. There are a few on-street pay and display metered spaces (marked with blue lines) on the hotel’s stretch of road, but there is a limited maximum stay (I think 8 hours...). Saying that, it’s less than €4 for 8 hours. A larger number of both free (spaces marked out with white lines) and pay and display spaces (blue as above) are available on the next road down, accessed via a flight of steps between the two roads. (Or a longer walk if you struggle with steps). A word of warning: watch out for white line spaces that look free, but are in fact signposted for taxis / coaches (autocarros turistas). Reception is hardly ever staffed. We had to ask the restaurant staff whenever we needed the hotel manager (who is nonetheless very attentive and friendly). We never saw anyone on hotel reception the rest of the time. The adjoining restaurant - Chanceller - is downstairs. You walk up between its two outdoor terraces to get to the hotel reception. We ate there a couple of times for our evening meal, as it was convenient. Don’t expect gourmet fayre. We stuck to simple things - pizza, pasta. See my separate review. There are other nicer restaurants within sight of the hotel or just a few minutes’ walk away. The post office and Pingo Doce supermarket are next door, so very handy. The lovely lido complex is just at the bottom of the hill, and buses seem to run into town frequently. (We had a hire car so didn’t use them.) I’m not sure if I’d stay here again, purely because I sleep relatively badly without air conditioning. But as a last minute, bargain basement hotel, it was a good base from which to explore beautiful Madeira.

I sit on the balcony and admire the view of the Atlantic. The location of the hotel is great. Very close to the city center, you can walk or take a bus. The room is simple but very clean. Breakfast is simple, coffee is very good The food at the restaurant is excellent. We go on trips every day and come back late at night so we don't need anything else. The staff is very very friendly. I recommend

Even before we arrived had various email conversations with Bruno to clarify certain issues. We were given a 4th floor sea view room for no extra cost; an iron; safe and kettle and even a fan as no air conditioning. Rooms basic but clean. Tidied every day and bathroom cleaned. Nothing was too much trouble. Ideally situated for restaurants and the sea. I’m writing this review from the balcony on our last day here as am so impressed. Bruno even arranged a cheap taxi transfer tomorrow morning.

When you came to the hotel, you were very welcomed cause of the staff (speciality the guy in the info desk). Everything seemed very fine, but then the puzzle started to get together. We lived at the fourth floor. There was only one power point that worked besides the fridge. There isn’t any air-contitioning, so you’ll melt at night. Also the streets are very much alive at night, so earplugs are needed. If you have hair at all, don’t even dream about showering. There no pressure at all in the water, so I couldn’t wash my long hair if I didn’t want to spend and hour in the shower. Breakfast is coffee, two breads (with only butter or jam) and a banana. Atleast it doesn’t keep me going, and I’m a small person. Third star is just because of the amazing staff (in the hotel, not in the restaurant). Cheap, yes. Enjoyable, no.
