It's a mix of good and bad.
First the good. The desk staff was super-helpful, with very good English, and giving us excellent ideas of where to go and what to do. The location is good for the city (though on the waterfront would've been even better). The breakfast was fine, and the dinner we ate at the hotel was good.
The layout of the rooms is bad: ours was one of many whose window overlooked internal pieces of the hotel; I like to think that my window might help me not die if the hotel caught fire, for example, and the restaurant is extremely loud. I also think the prices were a bit high.
The internet is terrible: the password-covered internet did reach the room, but wouldn't draw down any content, while the public internet was slow and unreliable.
The hotel has no parking, but this turned out not to matter much because we were primarily in Ponta Delgada on the weekend.
