When I was looking for an accommodation in Madeira I found out I had a big problem. Which concreate cube should I choose? Well, I did not have to, because I had found this hotel.
LOCATION: Best ever - if you take a bus from airport ( which costs 5 euros), than you have to take a taxi from centre (8 euros) to the hotel, it is situated in a steap hill. Later it is a nice walk, but the baggage the first day....thanks to that location the hotel has a wonderful view over the old city.
ACCOMMODATION : The hotel itself looks like a house from the 1900´s. Lovely! Seems to have a soul. We had a room in the outside building with a balcony. We could not have better one. Can you imagine the evening dinner sitting on the balcony overlooking the pool?? We did enjoy it.
ROOMS: The hotel was clean, the bed was not soft ( we did like it).
SERVICE : Kind and helpful staff
Well, an overview : It is a three star hotel, do not expect a luxury service and accommodation. BUT If you look for a hotel with a soul, kind service and stuff situated in a historical city centre, trust me, that is the best choice. WE WERE MORE THAN SATISFIED.
