Helpful concierge, pleasant room, good location. The included breakfast was okay. There were delays in getting us checked in. The pool was decent but too cold. It is on a narrow street and sometimes hard to find. We were able to find parking nearby but it is a challenge.

I spent only one night with my girlfriend in this hotel, but I have to say that we liked it a lot. The location is perfect, in the center town, the spaces are old fashioned, very interesting and beautiful. The room clean and large. The only point could be the breakfast, but in the hotel is absolutely advisable!

The hotel is located in the centre of Ponta Delgada. Within 5 minutes you are at the boulevard. Hotel is a bit old fashioned but the staff told us that there will be a big renovation in 2017.

The hotel is located in the old town, only a couple of minutes walk from restaurants, sights and the waterfront - it is a good location and avoids the noise in the very centre of the old town, from bars, restaurants etc. The hotel used to be a music school and has been sympathetically converted. Our room was large, as... More

We had a lovely stay. Very impressed with the staff, who were so charming and helpful. This establishment is extremely well located. OUr room was at the front, but certainly not noisy and had lovely large windows which we could look out onto the quiet narrow street. Would highly recommend
