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
Hotel Escola is a little gem situated on the very edge of Funchal, bordered by a banana plantation, yet within easy touch of the city by very cheap bus transport. The rest of the island can all be visited from the central bus terminus.
A friend of ours went to live in Madeira a couple of years back, his apartment is opposite to this establishment. In numerous phone calls he waxed lyrical about the food here, he eats every lunch time here.

I've visited this hotel with a couple friends (ages 20-30). Everybody who worked there is really friendly and the service is exquisite. The room was good enough to stay in for a week, got cleaned every day and had a really nice view.
Spent a week here at the end of September and it was lovely. Only 20 rooms which makes for a far more personal service and the restaurant is excellent and very good value, usually we try and go somewhere different every night but ended up...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.
