“Good budget hotel, great location.”
Reviewed 4 March 2010

A good budget hotel situated right in the centre of the shopping district of Funchal with may shops and restaurants close by. The public areas of the hotel and our room were both spotlessly clean during our stay. The bathroom was a little small, ok it was tiny, but as long as you weren't having a party in there it was big enough for one, again very clean. Toiletries supplied and fresh towels every day.
The breakfast was passable, but avoid the scrambled eggs. Didn't look or taste like eggs! We visited just after the recent floods and the reception staff were friendly but didn't seem to know much about the changed transport plans that had been put in place, we wondered if they were Madeiran?. Maybe its more of a business hotel than a tourist hotel.
Overall a great place to stay in central Funchal.

Reviewed 18 March 2007

I stayed here for a week in January 2005, booked as a package tour.
Location: excellent for exploring the city of Funchal and close to a lot of buses for other parts of the island, although main bus terminal is a 15 or 20 minutes walk. The Cathedral and city center are just across the street. Sea front 200 meters down the street.
Good budget choice, clean rooms, everything worked fine, like TV set and bathroom, staff friendly and helpful but some do not know more English than "coffee" and "tea". Breakfast simple. The only nuisance for me were the doves, all over the top floor terrace and on my windowsill when I opened the window. There must be noise from the city streets but I had a room facing the backyard so I really don't know.
I will stay here again if I do not need things like pool or sun bathing garden.

Stayed January 2005
