Another hallway links to 2 Double and 1 Twin bedrooms, all with fitted wardrobes and roller, window shutters. There is 1 Family bathroom with bath/shower plus another shower-room with toilet on this floor. A wide staircase rises to the spacious, 'dual-aspect' upper-floor sitting room and large, master 'en-suite' bedroom. Both rooms have direct access through sliding glass doors to the spacious, airy and light, outside part-covered terracing. “The Penthouse, Ponta Delgada” is well-located in the newly-developed area of the city and a great base from which to explore the historic town centre. It is just a short walk (10 - 15 minutes) from the sea-front, swimming pools, yachting marina and the island's new cruise ship terminal, 'Portas do Mar' with its many bars and restaurants. The main 'Sol Mar' supermarket is very close-by as well as a good selection of local shops, cafes, restaurants. A nice pizza restaurant is opposite and a very handy laundry/dry cleaners is on the ground floor of the property. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 02461/ALMore

I originally had booked two rooms (for 4 adults) at the Hotel Azor, but then stumbled across this listing, and am SO glad I booked this phenomenal penthouse (the largest one in Ponte Delgada) instead. It basically was 5x the size at half the price...More

About the neighbourhood
'The Penthouse, Ponta Delgada' is situated in a newly re-developed part of 'downtown' Ponta Delgada, around the Grand Avenida D. Joao III with its 'up-market' residential apartments, shops, restaurant/cafes, bakery, modern 'Lince' and 'VIP Executive' hotels and the city's main 'Sol Mar' supermarket. It's a short walk (5 minutes) to the edge of the original 'old town' with more restaurants/cafes & shops and a further 10 - 15 minute to the new 'Portas do Mar' (Gates to the Sea) Cruise Terminal with its large number of restaurants, cafes, bars and swimming complex or to the historic centre around 'Portas da Cidade' (Gates to the City). It's conveniently situated to experience and enjoy all of the amenities and attractions that this small city (pop.85,000) has to offer including the fort, convent, museum, theatre and night-life!
How to get there
Airport transfers (€7.50 p.p.) in our 'Azores Explorer' minibus (Up to 8 Pax.) or the airport shuttle bus to Ponta Delgada and then take a taxi unless you are hiring a car. If that's the case then ask the car hire receptionist to mark the 'Lince' hotel on a map and park your hire car, legally & safely, nearby. We will meet you in the hotel 'Lynx Bar Lounge' at a pre-arranged time -- the apartment is a 2 minute walk away. Any problems, please telephone.
