This hotel is one of a few in central Funchal. Many of the city's hotels are higher up and a taxi drive from the main city. So, in terms of location, this hotel is great. However, it lacks any luxury and needs some extra TLC to make it work. The rooms are varied - I was put in a very...

I stayed one week at the Orquidea because it was the most inexpensive option my charter company had to offer. Besides the price, the good thing about this 3 star hotel is the location. It is actually situated rather close to the Old Quarter, the bus station, the market, the cable car, the water front, etc. The room was ok...

I stayed here for 1 week in November and was not happy with it. The room needed a deep clean, carpet and walls were dirty. It was very small and had a broken chair which they replaced. The cooked breakfast was barely warm, even when I was first in the restaurant! The evening meal was a la carte with little...

If the carpets and the televisions in the rooms would be more recent probably i would rate a little better this hotel. About the room, the temperature was ok with a good AC, the mattress and pillow were KO, 1990´s TV with a lot of grain in the picture. The bathroom had a shower and not a bathtub. The breakfast...

We booked this hotel for a week this November and after looking it up, it looked very promissing, 3 stars and all. Unfortunately, this hotel has the most old-fashioned interior ever, the TV could have exploded any minute and after a couple of days, we found out we had ants in our room. One day, I left bag of candy,...

Noisy, smelly not renovated for years room, with view to the other building, old furniture, no fridge, no internet, very poor breakfast. There is a terrace on the roof but it is also noisy (air conditioner on the roof). The only good point is a location if you want to go to the city centre.

Clean,no frills hotel in a good location for all the sights. Room made daily and adequate continental breakfast. Short walk down to the seafront but quite a steep climb back up for those not very good on their feet. Suited us for somewhere to use as a base as we were out most days exploring.

The hotel is in an ideal location for exploring funchal. Parking is around the corner of the hotel and picks right outside the enterance. Reception were very serviceable, especially when i required directions for particular places. They knew where the nearest stores, supermarkets and buses were. Reception also speaks four languages including English. The lobby, study room and business centre...

Hotel in the city center, cheap, has the basics you need to have a good night sleep, great view on the top floors, staff very kind and always ready to get what you need. A bit old, unfashionable carpet, flimsy breakfast.
