“Good value but room for improvement”
Reviewed 9 October 2013

Just returned from our studio apartment at Paraiso. Pluses & minuses in all areas; rare level location; easy walk to Pingo Doce supermarket & cafe (nearby restaurants expensive). On busy bus route so well connected but some road noise. 4 parking spaces but no other free parking nearby. Comfy reception lounge & bar (closes 9pm) & wi-fi (none in apartments). Lift to all floors including roof sun terrace. Tiny, shabby & sparsely equipped kitchenette with only a twin hob for cooking. There was enough wall space for a microwave so a pity this not provided. We managed, but it was a bit like caravanning. The bathroom was dated & our shaver light & socket didn't work but to be fair we forgot to report it. No toiletries or tooth mugs were provided but it had a full complement of fluffy towels, a non-slip mat in the bath and we liked having our own water heater - no more tepid showers at peak times. The bedroom we liked better; reasonably comfortable twin beds, plenty of storage, sliding patio doors to east facing balcony. Several English language programmes on the cable TV but only a scart socket (if you are thinking of using it to show your own recordings). For dining there were two armchairs & a small table. We could not fault the housekeeping. The price of these apartments reflects the fact they need updating and overall we thought our studio was good value for money, but a few simple & cheap additions would make a huge improvement.

Room Tip: The higher floors (2nd and 3rd floors) towards the rear of the block would have less road noise.

Reviewed 15 June 2013

Me and my wife had stayd in Paraiso Apartamentos Turisticos in June and we loved it.
For only 175€ we had an excellente quality/price relation for a nice and relax vacations.
The apartement is very quiet, the windows are double glass, with no noise from the street and with the door of the room closed, we can not ear nothing from the corredors of the Hotel.
So, we had sleept as babys. Privat Park for the car, close to the cafe´s and restaurant´s (one minute by foot) and close to the historical center (15 minute´s by foot/5 minute´s by car).
Very clean apartment, every day, was clean and new toals was given to us.
Wireless for free. No swimming pool but the hotel has several close beaches around and for by the price you will never find such a good service, and you my spend money in other things as tours and restaurants, despite the kitchen in the apartement.
We are very pleased by the service.

Room Tip: Rooms with kitchen, bathroom and balcony in the center of the city.

I have stayed in this hotel 5 nights. It is nice and clean. Very basic but if you need something cheap rather than fancy this is definitely place to stay.
There are supermarkets near by so you can easily get what you need. Bus stop is also very convenient.

We stayed here a few nights as part of a longer holiday in Madeira. We usually avoid Funchal but this was handy as I had to return the car to Europcar over the road. The cooking facilities consist of 2 electric rings but the satellite TV was good. Airport bus stops nearby.

If you want a 'star' hotel don't go. If you want clean, safe, basic accomodation that is very cheap and well situated between the main city anf Lido hotel district the read on. The room we had was 'tired' but clean and serviced daily. The cooking facilities were basic but adequate as we ate out most of the time. There is wifi available in the reception and a small bar at the rear.
I would stay there again, but I would request a room away from the front of the building because of the road noise. As I said basic but very cheap!

Room Tip: Don't take a room at the front!
