          • Group of friends
            8.8

            Good location and efficient staff. Room design was interesting and different. All requests were immediately and competently handled.

            We do not like air conditioning and the side street was pretty noisy with open windows.

          • Couple
            7.8

            We liked that the hotel was so central and everything was in easy walking distance. So much nicer than staying in the faceless characterless hotel district! The rooms were a good size and had everything we needed. We can't comment on the food as we went out for dinner and had lazy breakfasts in our room!

            The only downside is that there in no outside space, even a roof terrace or something would have been nice. However i was aware of this when i booked it, it just woud be nicer if they had somewhere.

          • Couple
            9.2

            I really appreciated the kindness of the girls working at the reception, and the quality of the dishes available at the hotel's restaurant at a very reasonable prices. I also liked the position of the hotel and its small number of rooms, which makes it a tiny jewel in the heart of Funchal.

          • Family with children
            8.8

            The hotel is very well located in downtown Funchal, close to shopping and restaurants. Friendly staff and excellent value for money.

          • Couple
            7.8

            Location, accommodation was of a good standard and design

            Could do with some where to sit out and have a drink that's not in the restaurant, more info the other hotel where the pool can be used! More tv channels! Better pillows

          • Older travelers
            7.4

            The hotel is nice, The staff is kind and competent. No problem here.

            The only problem was internet access that was only possible with a cable in the room. The hotel only had 20 inch cables, which made it very difficult to connect the laptop. If you need to spend any significant amount of time on the internet for any reason, this is not the place for you. If you are truly on vacation and need no internet connection, the hotel is just great.

          • Group of friends
            8.8

            The staff is very welcoming and helpful, and the whole environment is neat and comfortable.

          • Couple
            7.8

            The design and friendly staff; Nuno was best! The breakfast was also really good and suited for a small hotel.

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            I liked the combined small kitchenette, very handy and usefull. I also like the new fresh design of the room with good lighting. It is very close to the center of Funchal. It is very good value for money

            Perhaps a bit more variation to the free continental breakfast with two or three different types of cereals and yoghurt.

          • Single
            9.2

            Perfect location, clean and nicely decorated and furnished apartment, good size. Would definitely come again!

            No proper space for the luggage, although the apartment itself was of good size.

          • Older travelers
            9.2

            This is a very welcoming hotel. Bedrooms were very comfortable. Location very central. Breakfasts were good and well presented.The evening menu was small but very good and inexpensive

            The "design" element of the bathroom included a clear glass door. This could be very off-putting.

          • Older travelers
            9.2

            Great location. Interesting design features but still very comfortable. Very friendly and helpful staff.

          • Group of friends
            7.8

            the location and price

            the dark interior and color scheme

          • Couple
            10.0

            The hotel is in the center... Everything it's ok...staff is ok...reception is okay it's by the harbour if you decide to have a journey to Porto Santo.. It's by a big shopping center...1 Minute walk anyway it's not close by the beaches...but if you decide to enjoy the island you need to rent a car

            ..During the night there are some bitches along the street...but it's okay

          • Family with children
            7.8

            Plenty of places to eat within walking distance. Hotel very clean. Staff pleasant and helpful. If you are happy not to have a swimming pool and want something central this is a suitable hotel for a short stay. Quiet location no disturbances overnight.

            Room not cleaned until 5pm on three occasions which if you like to have an afternoon rest was pretty hopeless, hotel was very hot even with the air conditioning. If you are a family of 4 sharing the kitchen there is only plates, cups, glasses etc for 2.
