This is a fine business oriented hotel. Quality is good, service is good (ok the moquette in the rooms is a little bit outdated). Rooms clean and well soundproofed (we had some difficult listening to the wake up sound from the barracks in front of it). We had not used the facilities like the gym, so we could not say anything about them, but the breakfast was fine and complete (more salt oriented): yes milk, tea and so on from machines (as is in most hotels now) but there are really a lot of things to pick up. We tasted the restaurant too: surely not a charm restaurant but it is a good choice, for instance, if you are late or you d not want to walk out searching for a restaurant in town.
The garage has not the best access, and if your car is not a small one while the garage is full you have to use a little bit of attention going out of the parking area.
The hotel is located about 40/45 minutes by feet from the center of the town and about 30 minutes by walking from the sea:this is the only drawback (and on the road there are just modern buildings sometimes not too new or well maintained).

Although this hotel is rated 8.0 at booking resources it’s truly rated the last at the list at TripAdvisor. The facilities are very very worn-out. Towels are very old, fitness equipment at the gym is totally old and half broken. The breakfast consists of cheap and artificial food + instant coffee... So we are frustrated that we spend our holidays in such a overrated hotel.

... to enjoy it; or, maybe it would be difficult to enjoy?
the thing is, this hotel is far from main touristic attractions and restaurants; so what I cas is: it is clean, the rooms are spacious, the beds are comfortable. A huge minus was the breakfaast, maybe because we were leaving very early.
All in all, fair 3*

Despite the name, there is nothing VIP about this place. We were late planning our trip, and this was one of the few places left in Ponta Delgada. In the reception most people were unfriendly. Roomservice did not speak English. Our room had a balcony, but it was unfurnished - completely empty, not even a plastic chair. Housekeeping forgot to refill the showercream, and the towels were old and worn out. No vacuuming or proper cleaning. Would never stay here again.

My friend and I spent 4 nights here, the exterior of the hotel does not look at all like the picture, in actual fact the windows are dirty and frosty not clear, the lobby is decent, the rooms were ok nothing special, was disappointed there was no kettle or coffee maker in the room, only place you can have one out of hours is at the bar for a couple of euros. the breakfast was the same every single day, for us being vegetarian we had break and cheese, baked beans and mushrooms. the location was decent (Sol Mar grocery store 5 mins walk) and the front desk staff were helpful. would I stay there again? I would probably look for other options
