We stayed in the hotel for 5 nights and had a truly wonderful time. We had booked the premier suite and enjoyed the spacious room but especially the view from the terrace. It is the perfect place to sit and look out to Funchal, the sea and the hills. The gardens are the other highlight here and the breakfasts outside... More

I stayed at the Arts in Hotel for a friend's wedding. I needed somewhere central as I was staying alone so taxi sharing wasn't an option. I arrived earlier than I should have. No problem.

Stayed for a week's holiday- our room and the hotel's grounds were lovely. Location is great- away from the busier sections of the town but ten minutes walk away from the waterfront or the main streets for the evening. Staff were extremely helpful and kind- thoroughly recommended. -Tim

The difference between this hotel and others was evident from the moment we parked our rental car in the hotel's spotless garage, and one of the staff came down and took us to our room. That was followed by a signing of papers and showing of passports in a comfortable, casual setting downstairs. We probably had the best room, a... More

The hotel is situated in a nice and quiet residential area about 750 m uphill from the old town of Funchal. During the day there are several buses right outside the hotel, taking you either to the bus station near the harbour or the Botanical Garden and Blandy Garden.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This enchanting, carefully restored Madeiran mansion is a 15 minute stroll from Funchal's Old Town, with sweeping ocean and mountain panoramas from its own botanical gardens and terraces. Designed by esteemed Portuguese architect Paulo David, this is a true art hotel with an annual curatorship, showcasing the very best local artists. Wandering the property, you will delight in stumbling upon hidden vistas, or encountering the latest urban photographic print from 2016 curators Urbanistas Digitais. Tended to by their own in-house gardener, the grounds boast exceptionally rare plants and ageing trees, such as Madeira's bewitching "Dragoeiro". Breakfast holds claim to strong, Portuguese coffee and homegrown, organic herbal teas and fruits. The charming service team will welcome you "home" as cherished friends and family, assuredly sharing with you the island's best kept secrets. Furnishings in the rooms are bright and breezy with wooden floors and air conditioning throughout. All rooms are connected to complimentary wireless internet, many with well-equipped kitchenettes and open terraces. Suites are located in the original mansion, while the studios are situated in a modern annex. Covered, on-site parking is both secure and complimentary. A private transfer service is available from Madeira Airport, which is a 20 minute drive from the hotel. ... more   less
