In usually stay at another hotel in Ponta Delgada, and this was ranked low in Trip Advisor, so I was wary when my host booked me into this place. I am happy that they did.
This is not your typical business hotel. It is older, and has a more traditional feel to it. My room was spacious,with a sitting room and a bedroom, as well as a fully functioning bathroom. If you are looking for ultra modern, this is not the place for you. If you are looking for friendly, service oriented staff, in clean comfortable rooms, this is the place.
The checkin process was smooth and quick. I was in my room in less that 10 minutes of walkiing into the hotel. The lobby and the rooms are clean and well maintained. Free internet, a real bonus! Located centrally, it is a short walk to the downtown, Portas do Mar, and the local tourist attractions. The staff had a good handle on where to eat in town, and their advice was good.
The view from my room was non existent, so if a view of the ocean is important, find somewhere else. At the same time, I felt I was sleeping in a piece of history. It is an old building on an old street. And yet comfortable.
I would stay here again,nowing what I know about Ponta Delgada. You need to rent a car to see the island anyway, and the hotel is close to any car rental companies. It is also close to the tour operators, so you have your choice of Whale Watching, deep sea fishing, bicycling, etc, and it is all close to the hotel.
