Excellent hotel in a really quiet area. Hotel is not in the centre but bus (bus 45 and 44) take you directly (25m) next to the hotel. From the centre of Funchal the bus takes not more than 5 minutes to the hotel.
There are 7 apartments in the hotel and they all have terrace with table, chairs etc. Staff clean the room everyday and every room has kitchen with dishes (and you don't even have to do the dishes! or they won't let you becouse there are no brushes etc.).
Bathroom was clean and the shower as well.
The lady who owns the hotel was very kind and wanted to welcome us personally. There is no air condition but the rooms are not too hot (even during the summer) and there is fan above the beds.
Cheap supermarket is in 3 minutes walk from the hotel and there is also cheap restaurants nearby. If you take taxi From Funchal remember to say that the hotel is in the left side of the football stadium because the road is blocked and you cannot drive from the right side of the road. Taxi costs around 7€ from the centre.
The only bad thing is that the neighbour has rooster who is really kind to wake you up at 5am in the morning. So take your earplugs with you! Very good hotel with good price.
