This was a great little find, and a super little independent hotel in the centre of Ponta Delgada. I was greeted with a lovely friendly welcome by Pedro and his staff. They recommended tours and organised everything for me.
All the staff went out of their way to be helpfully and friendly, and couldn't do enough for you.
Before I arrived, they had even emailed me to offer me a front room that could be noisy, or a back room that would be quieter (although without a view). I took a back room, and was very pleasantly surprised by the size and facilities of the room. ( Noticed some people say the rooms are dated, but i think it was full of charm and character. I loved it) wasn't bothered about not having a view, as was out during the day to site see, and slept well at night.
A good choice for breakfast, always with lovely fresh produce and loved the fact you could squeeze your own orange juice. Had a meal my last evening, which lived up to the great reviews and recommendations. Best steak I've tasted in a very long time.
In all I couldn't have asked for more, and hope to return again one day. This place really does feel inter -mate, family run, individual and full of character. Traveling on my own, I didn't feel out of place as everyone was so warm and friendly.
