Stayed in here for 8 days the owner and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Our Apartment was cleaned everyday and the continental breakfast was great. Would definitely stay here again on my next visit to Madeira. Close to all the restaurants and main attractions.

Basic and small rooms, good service, great price and location. Bathroom needs improvements and updates. Breakfast is standard and good. The overall level of comfort is average. It has no elevator; so, it can be challenging for some people.

I stayed in a small room with bathroom and kitchenette attached. It was very clean, comfortable and well located. Nothing extravagant - excellent value for money. Staff were friendly and helpful. Some minor issues: there was loud drilling noise from the street on occasion, most parking in the area you have to pay for per hour and the breakfast was...
