Very good location for you that are visiting the city. Location is very close walking distance almost to everywhere in Funchal The room is clean and the staff - very friendly. There is a rooftop pool and cozy bar, tables on a roof and a lot of sun! I recommend strongly this hotel for anybody

Overlooking the gardens, The Madeira is so close to everything you need in Funchal. The recent makeover has changed the logo and corporate image but the staff are still the same welcoming and friendly team who offer first class service at a budget price.

We always use it when we have a few days in Madeira en route to or from Porto Santo (well worth going for the tranquillity of the place if you have never been there) and the roof top must be a splendid place to watch the firework displays from.

Spent Easter week at this hotel. The location was excellent for shopping, eating out, going on trips (pick up point just 2 minutes walk away) and the rooftop pool and bar area has fantastic views. Room was an ok size since I was on my own, but would have been cramped if there had been two people. However, overall value was great.

Just spent a week here. Apparently, it has just been re-opened after a major refurbishmment and you could still smell the fresh paint. The location is very good for the nice centre of Funchal near to The Ritz, 'Theatre' and Golden Gate cafe/ restaurants , all recommended for good value and very nice places to eat. In between 2 very nice free parks with interesting variety of trees and tropical plants. Breakfast choice (buffet) was fine , no separate resturant at the Hotel. Small pool on rooftop and nice area to sit in the evening with bar. Friendly staff.

Noise from nightclub kept us awake one night only( Saturday)

We stayed at the hotel for a week over New Year . It was very clean. The staff were very helpful and the breakfasts fine. We booked in person on an earlier trip to Funchal and requested a corner room on a high floor. The room was great but we weren't aware when booking of the night club next to the Municipal Theatre! Whilst this is normally open on Friday and Saturday nights till 4am it was open all night on New Years Eve & we therefore got no sleep. We hope to return to the hotel when the refurb is complete & will try a back room.

I stayed in this city-centre hotel between 27th Dec and 3rd Jan 2014 for the Christmas - New Year celebrations in Funchal. The hotel is right in the heart of the city and about 2 mins walk from the main street and the very posh Ritz cafe.

It's a 60s hotel and is cosy, friendly and very Madeiran. It's spotlessly clean and very homely. It's not swish and modern but that didn't matter at all. In fact, I really liked the lovely retro feel of the place.

The breakfast was good ... a choice of eggs, yoghurt, breads and cheese as well as ham and fruit.

I've previously stayed in 4-star hotels in the hotel zone and the experience of this modest town centre hotel made me realise that swanky, spacious 4-stars aren't really my cup of tea.

The hotel also offers free wifi and very helpful reception staff.

Highly recommended if you want an authentic Madeiran experience. It was wonderful being able to step out of my hotel and immediately be in the town with all the wonderful festive on-street entertainment (dancers, brass bands, winter market, chestnut sellers and festive lights). Also, all the concert venues are within walking distance, so no expensive or inconvenient taxis needed at all.

Room Tip: The rooms can be a little bit noisy due to being in the city centre but this adds to the atmosphere...
