“Right in the centre of things!”
Reviewed 16 April 2010

Great location, many excellent restaurants nearby, and you can see the cruise ships from the rooftop terrace. Very friendly unobtrusive service. The bar/cafeteria is Funchal's best kept secret - most people shun any hotel bar as it is "bound to be expensive" - well the Madeira bar is the least expensive in town, even cheaper than the excellent outdoor Cafe Concerto just outside. We had a lovely room with balcony, breakfast was more than ample if a little basic. Car parking in Funchal is very hard and the hotel arranged a space in a nearby underground car park at very reasonable cost. We were extremely satisfied and would certainly stay here again.

Reviewed 19 March 2010

We have now stayed in this hotel for two holidays in 2010 and 2009. For a three star hotel is has a superb location in the centre of Funchal and its room rates are very competetive. Extremely friendly staff, a downstairs bar area; a separate lounge with Pool table and free computer access (although only one computer!). A full-size swimming pool outside on the top floor, althoughh unheated. With many good restaurants within walking distance, we would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel. East access from airport via the local Aerobus, which stops on the seafront about 100 metres from hotel.

Reviewed 10 December 2009

Stayed here for one week on a Thomsons package and have to stay it was a great choice. The location is very central and you're close to some excellent small family-run restaurants, lots of shops if you're that way inclined, and the bus terminal and cable cars. The hotel bedroom was a good size and we paid extra for a balcony which was just big enough for a small table and 2 chairs but that was fine. Breakfast was more than adequate if basic.
We're really glad we stayed here rather than in the aptly named "hotel zone" to the West of Funchal which is literally that, hotels and nothing much more.
