We had the suits, so I cannot review the regular rooms, but it is enough to see the other four stars hotels in Ponta Delgada to know that this one is the best. The hotel certainly got an atmosphire and is quite unique. It is not a factory made one like the others you see from the promanande. The staff was extermly nice and every request was positive. I will definitly choose this hotel again

I cannot recommend this hotel enough! Staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. Rooms were spacious, clean, fridge in room. The breakfast was superb with hot and cold choices and everything you might require (even a waffle maker!). We ate in the restaurant twice (buffet and a la carte) - both very good and excellent prices. The buffet included all your drinks as well. There is a Sports Bar attached to the hotel which was great for happy hour and all drinks reasonably priced. The hotel is situated about a 5-10 min walk from the main harbour but there are plenty of restaurants in the vicinity which are very good, and lots of shops in the nearby streets. If I went back to Ponta Delgada I would definitely stay here.

This is a reasonably priced, very central 4-star hotel, situated on a pretty square. Stayed in a comfortable suite for 4 nights. Breakfast was good and filling. Rooftop provides views of city. Front desk staff were extremely helpful and very courteous. The place has a good atmosphere--olde worlde. Short walk to main squares. Highly recommended. Would definitely go back.

Service - wonderful staff, all were professional, helpful and friendly.
Location - central, right by a pretty park.
Comfort - I had a lovely room, with a balcony. Spacious and very clean.

Breakfast - lots of choice, hot and cold buffet.
Evening meal - we had a buffet one evening and a la carte on another evening. Both very good. Ample choice of wines at very reasonable prices. Try the wine from Pico.
Hotel facilities - roof top pool and gym. Beautiful views so even if it's not warm enough to swim, it is a good place to relax and admire the views of the town and ocean. Adjoining sports bar has good menu, snooker, TV's and entertainment some nights. Nice seating areas around the hotel to relax and read or have a coffee.

I recommend this hotel for anyone who wants to stay in central town. It's 4 stars are well deserved.

We stayed here for 3 nights and enjoyed it very much. The location is just minutes from the center of Ponta Delgada and a number of restaurants. The staff was very friendly, and the public rooms have interesting period details.
The breakfast buffet was outstanding, and had a variety of breads, cheeses, eggs, sausage and bacon, cereals, yogurt, tomatoes, cucumbers, jams, juice, coffee, and even waffles made to order. This was a great way to start our day.
The room was clean and large, and the wifi connection was free and fairly fast. We found the bed a bit hard, and there were no comfortable chairs in the room, just one small chair at a tiny table. The bathtub/shower was large and water was nice and hot. The floors throughout have no rugs, so were a bit cold under foot. There were a wide variety of channels on TV but reception was not outstanding. There is no refrigerator or tea pot in the room. A large bottle of water was in the room and was complimentary, a nice touch.
We enjoyed our stay very much and would come back again.
