Love this place. It's very close to town and a bit away from the worst tourist places. The staff were a bit "funny" but that did not mater at all. The building and the terrace is what makes this place so great. Love the evening view from the terrace. The rooms are nice.

A great building in a great place. Not in the extremely touristic resort zone of Funchal, but near the old town. Building needs updating, which currently is being done. Personel lacked basic conversational and hospitality skills (few exceptions) and did not succeed (or in some cases even try) in making our stay as pleasant as it could have been. Really...

Very good location, however it is up a steep hill although Funchal is quite hilly in places. Staff are lovely. Hotel has an unique charm and personality. Only bad thing was the wifi because we were relying on it to plan our daily activities- we couldn't connect to it from our room and was very slow even downstairs.

Went to Hotel Monte Carlo 11 September 2016. Immediately disappointed with first room shown, dark, dingy, musty and on a "wing" at the back. Moved to no. 3 inside the main hotel. Stained carpet, bed made out of hardboard on wooden legs, with a crinkly old torn mattress and two well used pillows, no way of locking door from inside,...

Located half way up a steep incline should not put you off. Plenty of taxis available locally fairly priced. As for the hotel - splendid. Location bonus is the stunning views over the city and harbour. Buffet breakfast and every morning fresh bread, cheeses, meats, and fruits available. Very good bar service with the night time cocktails well worth the...

This hotel has surprised me in a positive way. I only stayed for 1 night but it was enough time to enjoy the roof pool with marvelous views and the old spectacular building. The furniture was a bit old and breakfast could improve but I guess for the price to can't compare

This hotel is great value for money. It is located in the pricey Funchal for a fair price. The hotel staff are very friendly and the interior and exterior have plenty of charm! The views are great but the walk from town is steep so bear in mind. Lots of traditional charm! Would go again!

We booked to stay here on a budget and I have to say we were pleasantly surprised. The hotel is situated about 10 minutes walk from the sea front and has amazing views across Funchal. The hotel is probably in need of some modernisation but we found it perfectly adequate for what we needed. The staff were always very helpful....

A lovely old hotel up on the hill. A 15 minute walk down to the old town but best to take a taxi back. Staff seem to be unfriendly when you arrive but let me assure you that is not the case. Their English is not the best, hence you think they are not interested in helping you. The bar...
