Whether Hotel Talisman in Ponta Delgada, Azores, deserves 3 or 4 stars, we don't care. We stayed 10 nights in this hotel. Sometimes it just was 'good' and sometimes we thought it even was 'very good.' But that rating didn't interest us that much. Our room (we had to change because the first room was rather nousy) was pleasant, clean and -thank God- quiet, so we were happy to stay there.
In general the food was just good and sometimes even excellent. The staff was good, charming and friendly, like it has to be, because it's their profession. But what we really loved was seeing one woman of the morning-staff, called Fatima Lima, taking care of a young boy who had found a sleeping place on the terrace during the night. It was clear he was in problems, without money and on the edge of society. She gave him spontaneously some breakfast for free; which is of course a nice thing to do. But it was her way of doing it, what really touched us. It was done with dignity and naturelness. For that we think this hotel deserves even 5 stars!!
