This is quite a modern hotel but it does have character. This is no concrete box but a well-designed hotel that fits into it's surroundings.
Most of Funchal's hotels are quite a way from the city centre. Sure, you can get a taxi or bus (the 7 day rover ticket is great value, as long as you can cope with the high-speed driving!) but having the option of walking in (about 10 mins) is a real plus for this hotel.
We had a junior suite. It was a bit more expensive but it meant that we had an extra room - handy as we had our 10 month old daughter with us! The mini-kitchen facilities in the room were brilliant (just a fridge, sink and double hob but they gave us freedom!)
The hotel's own restaurants are expensive but with the kitchen facilities and proximity to the city it doesn't matter. Breakfast was included and was an extensive buffet that set us up very well for the day!
The staff were all excellent and happy to assist.
The best thing I can say is that when we return to Funchal in a few years time, we will be looking to stay at this hotel again.
