“More' style than substance'”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 December 2008

Modern located in town centre, easy for Taxi's & Buses and Shopping Centre two minutes away. Excellent staff. Make sure there is a Fridge in your Room some don't have them - Think of the hot nights and gagging for a cold drink. When I insisted on a Fridge they moved us to a Suite at no extra cost! No Bar in Hotel but 4 local Bars within spitting distance.
Hotel Restaurant adequate but then most are in Funchal with similar menu's just a different name above the door.
Fish market was recommended for a visit- I've seen better selection in Morrison's Supermarket!
If you buy a combined Bus/Botanical Gardens Ticket make sure you get off the Bus at the Cable Car entrance otherwise you will have to pay again for your entrance ticket to the Gardens.

Great central location,we could go anywhere in the city centre by foot. Small hotel,gives it a quiet accomodation. The staff was very friendly a professional. It's a new hotel,so the loved the decoration,the colors,the furtinure,very good taste :)
The breakfast it's continental,not buffett but it was OK,we had plenty to eat every morning and always diferent things.
It as no swimming pool,gym,etc. but they have another hotel of this group that offers these services.
I would absolutely recommend this hotel!
