My daughter and I visited Ponta Delgada in late April of 2012 and we were very pleased with this hotel. It was clean, comfortable and the staff was very helpful. There was plenty of storage in the closets, although no drawers, and the bathroom had enough counter space for toiletries. The breakfast had good choices, eggs and bacon, banana bread,... More

Four of us stayed in this hotel for two nights. We toured Sao Miguel and this hotel was recommended by the travel agent. It is an old school converted into a hotel. It is located near Ponta Delgada square (walking distance) from the shopping center and the pier. Convenient location to restaurants, bars, and shopping as well as tourist sites.... More

This charming hotel is within walking distance of museums, gardens, busses, taxis, restaurants and downtown. The staff are friendly and helpful. They have a very nice breakfast and we were completely satisfied and would recommend it highly.

This hotel has a great location that allows you to walk to pretty much anything downtown. We did not have a car but I would imagine the parking would be a little difficult in this area. The restaurant at the hotel was superb and went out of there way to help us surprise my mother on her birthday. The owner... More

We spent five nights in the end of July/beginning of August. Two double rooms. The hotel is quiet, very well situated, and a very clever update of an ancient school (Colégio). The ambiance is very relaxed. Breakfast is average about variety, but good quality. Very friendly and polite staff even for portuguese standards. The rooms are very large, but unfortunately... More
