Location is good for being close to Funchal centre as is very close to the harbour for catching the ferry to Porto Santo.
Steep paths and roads around so you need to be physically able.
Good clean modern little hotel, minimalistic in design with a small outdoor pool which was rarely used whilst there.
Rooms have good balcony with furniture overlooking the Quinta Da Penha De Franca car park and entrance, so quite peaceful. Good size rooms and bathroom. Staff were really friendly and helpful with left luggage etc. The hotel has a small modern bar should you wish to use it. Large breakfast/dining room again modern design. Continental Breakfast was more than adequate and I chose to take mine outside in the garden which was really pleasant. I could not fault the hotel for what I required from it which was a good clean modern inexpensive base for exploring Funchal. Infact I have re-booked to go back for 3 more nights in September 2008 and also catching the ferry over for 1 night in Porto Santo. Great value and looking forward to returning.
