Positive Reviews

Great central location in downtown Funchal.

The hotel's location in downtown Funchal puts you right near the bus lines, cafes, restaurants, markets, and cultural attractions of the city. Guests also spoke highly of the town itself, stating that there is a lot to be enjoyed here.

Clean and comfortable suites and bathrooms.

The suites were described as being cosy and exceptionally clean. Reviewers appreciated the diligent and courteous room staff who came through to clean and replace towels every day.

Excellent value for money.

Reviews overwhelmingly agreed that with a price comparable to many hostels, this establishment represents a great value for money in Funchal. The central location, cleanliness of the facilities, and excellent staff mean that you get a lot for your money here.

Negative Reviews

Rooms are basic and show some age.

Many patrons stated that the facilities are a bit dated and the rooms are rather basic. Some reported issues indicative of the building's age such as poor noise insulation, lumpy beds, small showers, or sloping floors. Others felt that the rooms, while simple, were comfortable and adequately covered their needs.

Breakfast offerings are modest.

The breakfast served by the hotel each morning is small and simple, with reviews noting that it consisted of little more than buttered bread and drinks. A number of people found it preferable to get breakfast at one of the many local eateries.

The central location brings noise.

Although the hotel's situation in downtown Funchal is good for exploring the city, the central location means that there is some street noise. Guests reported that the neighbourhood can be loud at times, making it difficult to sleep.
