Funchal

Set in a previous palacete, overlooking the bay of Funchal and Atlantic Ocean, with unique view and location in Funchal. This charming hotel lies in a cultural area of the city center, next to museums and heritage, just 1 km from the ocean and 2 km from the beach. Guests will find themselves just a 5 minutes' walking distance away from a myriad of shopping opportunities, dining options, bars and nightclubs. This wonderful hotel comprises a main building and annexed block, which feature beautifully-appointed guest rooms. The hotel offers a wonderful terrace, with stunning views with bar service and where you can take breakfast in the mornings, and also relaxing at the end of the day. The rooms are differently decorated, with some vintage pieces, TV cable channels, phone with free local calls and private bathroom. There is free Wi-Fi in the common areas, and a leisure winter room, with TV, a piano and games. There is a panoramic rooftop pool, open all year, with free towels and bar service after 4 a.m. There is a 60's decorated Bar until midnight, with wines, cocktails and tapas service. Any car-rental, boat trips, "levadas" and other activities can be booked at the reception, which is open 24 h.

Stunning views, amazing staff but basic conditions

Review by SusanaCF Bangkok, Thailand

This hotel has a stunning placement in a top of a hill with an unique view. The staff is very welcoming and make their best to try hard to help the guest to feel welcome. However, it was hard...

The rooms are really updated, no wifi, water pressure is really low, bathroom leaks, cracks on the walls. It really needs a real investment. The chocking is the breakfast, so basic within a country which is proud on their food. There is a swimming pool with a beautiful view. The hotel has 2 buildings one is an extension with a swimming pool, more modern though the bathrooms still smelly. It is handy to have space for 3 cars to park but good luck arriving early to get them.

Amazing views and wonderful staff

Stunning views from the hotel and terrace, old-fashioned charm, comfortable rooms and great rooftop pool. The staff all are very kind and friendly, especially Adriana, who went out of her way to help me in a crisis. Beds are a bit lumpy but I still slept very well and felt very safe and relaxed here...

10 minute walk to the centre.

Outstanding location

Review by biggles231 Norfolk

We visited here by chance, and went back for drinks and the music several times. The views are fantastic ; particularly watching Funchals lights come on in the evening. We didn’t stay here, but formed a very positive view of the staff, who couldn’t do enough for you, the drinks, and the ambience.

Nice view, good location and perfect breakfast!

Review by Sílvia O Sintra, Portugal

Positive: Very nice location, old and charming.

Nice breakfast.

Located next to the city center.

Very nice view.

Swimming pool is very nice, in spite of coldness this time of the year.

Employers are sympathic, always asking for your demands.

Negative: Covid rules... in spite not being the hotel's fault, believe me, think twice before travelling to Madeira Island, you can wait 36 hours for result and being detained in your room.

Wifi.. really? This hotel in plain 21st century, doesn't provide wifi signal in customers rooms, so, you'll only be able to access internet, in certain public areas of the hotel.

Need some minor repairs.

Parking lot is very small, only 4 places to park your car, however, i can understand, just because, every house in Madeira, doesn't have a lot of space, due to the architectonic of the island.

Doesn't have any luxury, it's simple and clean.

A beautiful building in need of renovation

Review by N9700JXcraigh Ipswich, United Kingdom

This old palace was converted to a Hotel 50 years ago and it seems that very little has been updated since. With stunning views and a short distance from the main areas of Funchal it's in a great location but is in real need of an update. The rooms have no WiFi, no fridge and no air conditioning...

The bathrooms are very tired as are the rooms. This of course makes it good value for money, so it takes with one hand and gives with another.

The saving grace was Angela who was super attentive and couldn't do enough to make sure we were all comfortable and looked after.

If you're happy with outdated decor, squeaky taps, lukewarm coffee and hot sticky nights without AC and want to spend more money in the shops then this is the place for you.
