The 560 restaurant attached to The Design Hotel may be a little off the usual tourist track in the city centre, but it is certainly worth locating for a meal. Its clientele is mainly business visitors to Funchal and the weekend evening we ate there, we were the only diners. It is certainly one of the best small hotel restaurants...

A good hotel. Friendly staff, good bed, good breakfast. It's certainly a question of personal taste whether you're appalled by the black walls or whether you appreciate the being warmy enclosed by the rather somber design. I felt fine with it after a short while of getting used to the unusual look. The hotel is well situated some hundred meters...

This hotel is great value for money.. we stayed here for only 1 night but it was a fantastic quirky room and very posh! Im not sure its somewhere you would want to spend the week but it is fantastic for a couple of nights!

This hotel is conveniently located close to Funchal dowtown (two steps from Dolce Vita shopping mall) and offers a good price / quality ratio. It's modern and conceptually designed and the only drawback is that the predominant colour is black, which makes the interior, especially the bathroom, very dark. Nevertheless, our room was spacious, with all ammenities even a kitchenette,...

We stayed here for 5 nights at the end of February and were well pleased with our choice of hotel. Very modern design which might be a bit quirky for some. Comfortable firm bed. Clean rooms with good shower. Helpful staff. Continental breakfast was adequate and cooked bacon and eggs could also be ordered. No wi-fi in rooms but available...

We stayed here for a week in February. Good central location. It is a very small hotel which is very clean and modern design. There are only 16 rooms. Our room was small but well presented, although very dark. We would have preferred more privacy in the bathroom and toilet which have transparent glass doors which do not stay shut....

We chose this hotel for its small number rooms (16) over 4 floors and its central location. The décor is very modern and predominantly black! Sounds dark but actually works very well with the added lights (that look like wood shavings!) and wonderful metallic dishes on the walls. It grew on me! The staff were not only courteous, friendly but...
