The Hotel is very central - easy walking distance almost everywhere. It was very good value for money and has a pleasant roof-top pool. The food at breakfast was fine and the staff very helpful.
The rooms are small and there is no air conditioning. Also the area isn't quite as pleasant at night. However, there's an effective fan in the room and you have to see these downsides in context of price - ie if you want more, pay more. The one thing that could easily be improved is the coffee at breakfast - it was really bad.
The breakfast, the rooms are good, just to sleep and explore the island, the staff are nice and funny, they will help you in anything that you need :)
the hotel is situated in the centre of Funchal. very close to buses, taxis, the excellent shops. easy to access from the airport. the staff were friendly and helpful. our room was comfortable with 2 arm chairs and a fridge. breakfast was fresh and well presented. the pool area was well tended and a very pleasant place to sit away from the bustle of the city and traffic noise .
just a very small thing. there was no hanger for your clothes in the bathroom.
The hotel is placed at the center of Funchal, with very good location. The staff was helpful. The room was very well cleaned.
This an old hotel, that hasn't enough quality to be a 4 star.The facilities are a little old and the breakfast poor.
The swimming pool located on the roof of the hotel; with the views and peace that makes you relax' really nice sitting by the pool reading a book!.
well proberly the fact that me and my partner are both in our middle 30s and we felt a bit out of place as everyone else was a lot older. but that is not the hotels fault.
Helpful, friendly and english speaking staff, great location
No ac, small window which can get kind of noisy if left open, wifi not free: 5 euro for 1 hour, 10 euro for 160 min and another option for 20 euro (forgot how many mins). There is also a charge if you want to use the computer at the lobby
Hotel staff were extremely friendly and pleasant; that in itself makes the stay very homey. Pool on the roof is a great way to relax with friends. Food at the hotel was cheaper than some restaurants, surprisingly, and their quality is very good.
lovely sweet,friendly receptionists with a smile and breakfast tasty with a warm environment ,courteous staff. room cleaning staff well mannered and very nice,the hotel is in the heart of city and walking distance from shopping centre so we enjoyed every minute of our stay. when we started back the taxi was at door step within no time.the receptionists are like angels , before u speak they know it and so they answer back within no time and always ready to help.
Hotel staff were very good
I could not open the window fully as it was broken
the central location of the hotel is a big value.
the lack of car parking.
Good low budget hotel, in the centre of Funchal. It delivered exactly what it promises to do.
Super location right in city centre. Clean rooms and great rooftop pool. Good value for money.
No air-con and small unvaried breakfast.
excellent value for money, friendly staff, great location
plastic undersheets on bed!
To be honest, I did like nothing. Maybe price was ok.
I was staying there for 2 weeks. First of all it is far from 4*. it is about two. It has no air conditioner, very humid in room and a bit smelly in bath room. Very old and simple furniture. It looks like nothing from 70-80s wasn't changed min hotel. No water in rooms, no tea pot and no free Internet! In Funchal main streets wifi is free, but in this hotel, even on reception it is not free. When I asked to change me a room, the answer of person on reception was "all rooms are the same not ok" and some has worse view even to old factory. Swimming pool wasn't crystal clean, I was there just once just to see. Breakfast was incredible poor for 4* hotel. And the street where hotel situated has some homeless and drunk people around in the evening and night.
We were staying there for 2 nights before moving on to a different destination.The hotel is ideal for this. The rooms were airy and big ,But with no air conditioning I would not use it during the hot summer months
In a build up area no air conditioning but we knew this and the hotel itself was lovely in every other way
