Positive Reviews

Authentic and warm family atmosphere.

Guests greatly enjoyed the quaint and authentic atmosphere of the hotel. Many particularly liked that it was family-run and has a warm personal feel that is often not found in larger hotels or corporate chains.

Great value, especially for the location.

The establishment's excellent central location near downtown Funchal is great, especially for the cost. Old Town, the town centre, and the beach are all within walking distance, and the area is not overly commercialised or touristy.

Kind, friendly, and welcoming hosts.

The family who runs the hotel received high praise from reviewers, who said that they are very kind and helpful. The owners went out of their way on multiple occasions to assist guests and are very knowledgeable about the local area. The breakfast fare, while basic, was also praised.

Negative Reviews

Thin walls and outside animal noise.

A few patrons commented on the cockerels and dogs in the area making some noise, suggesting that light sleepers should bring earplugs. Others noticed thin walls but added that this is characteristic of traditional buildings in the area.

Poor location for people with mobility issues.

Many people reported that the hotel is atop a steep slope and not very close to local public transit. The location requires walking up the hill when coming back from town, making this a poor location for travellers who have trouble getting around.

Suites and bathrooms are a bit small and dated.

The rooms and showers in the hotel are basic and somewhat smaller than some guests may be used to. A few had issues with water in the shower at certain times, stating that the temperature was inconsistent. However, most noted that the suites are very clean and well-kept.
