Nice and quiet hotel situated in the new and modern Funchal, called Sao Martinho. The hotel is also a school so don't be worried if you are served in the restaurant by a young student. The hotel is far from the center of Funchal 5km....More
Food is prepared by college students. Set menu with alternative main course. Food excellent but the wine is rather cheap. Lacking in atmosphere,as the room is very big and open. Service was acceptable but could do with a smile.
We had a week at this hotel and very much enjoyed it. Room was big enough with a balcony looking out to sea, so sun in the afternoon. This is a small hotel, so you don't get lots of noise when other guests come in...More
Hotel Escola is a good hotel, but far too far away from the center of Funchal. The service was good. It was clean. The breakfast was a little bit boring, because it was every day the same. The roomservice was good and the people were...More
Our fourth visit to the Hotel Escola. This is a small hotel in the Sao Martinho district, somewhat out of Funchal but within 100 metres of a bus stop or an hours walk along the promenade into Funchal itself. The promenade offers plenty of opportunity...More

You will find the aerobus right outside the terminal. The airport is quite small so you cant't miss it. The stop for this hotel is no. 23 but... the bus doesn't stop anywhere near! In fact, we had to climb quite a steep road, carrying our suitcases, and were knackered by the time we arrived. We had to take several breaks during the climb. I suggest you take the bus and ask the driver to drop you off and the Forum Mall (I think it is stop 22) where there are always lots of taxis. From there you take a cab right to the door of the hotel. I think this short ride won't cost more than 5 euros.
I hope this was helpful, have a great vacation. We loved this hotel.
