We have stayed here previously and would definitely stay again. Staff are exceptionally warm and friendly, rooms are of a high standard and there are a variety of different sizes and options. Our room was large with a free standing bath in the room and a large en-suit shower room. There was also a small balcony overlooking the internal courtyard and although there are no sea views, the central location of the hotel more than makes up for this. The hotel is quiet, has a lovely roof top terrace with views overs the city and harbour. COVID regulations are professionally followed and acted upon. Breakfast buffet is wide ranging with the option of ordering from the kitchen direct. The hotel has a spa although we did not have the time to use this facility. Well done to all of the staff and organisation for making our stay so enjoyable in these trying times.

We stayed for 2 weeks over Christmas and the New Year. The hotel is lovely, we had a junior suit which was fab. ALL the staff were excellent from the cleaning ladies, reception, bar staff and waiting staff in restaurant. They all worked so hard especially over the holiday period. We would highly recommend this hotel, perfect location and we’re lucky to have had good weather to top. They also kindly catered to my gluten free being a coeliac. Many thanks again.

We stayed for 5 nights just before Christmas - from the moment we arrived we felt welcome, lovely friendly staff and wonderful atmosphere. The hotel itself is beautiful, an old converted building making for an unusual and quirky hotel. A fantastic example of a boutique hotel in the truest sense. The hotel is in an ideal location for Funchal old town with everything in walking distance. The breakfasts and food in the restaurant (Tipographia) was fantastic, bar service and happy hour great! The staff are all great (Luisa was really helpful) and the lady organising breakfast tables everyday was lovely. There is a lovely little lap pool on the roof with a bar and a jacuzzi which is a lovely way to watch the sun go down. If you dislike huge chain hotels with 80's decor and want somewhere a little different with a personal touch then this is the hotel for you!

One of the nicest small hotels you will find anywhere, not just in Madeira. Covers every base and offers every facility. Friendliest staff, from the moment you arrive to a glass of bubbly from the friendly receptionist ( with the blonde hair, sorry Ive forgotten your name) being given the room you regularily stay in, (319). Thanks so much. The hotel restaurant ' The Tipograhia ' is excellent too!! Strongly recommend it. Breakfasts are superb, wonderful buffet with fresh healthy food and short hot menu cooked freshly. Would never stay anywhere else in Madeira.

This place was exceptional: good staff, good spa, good service, good food, good ambiance, good humour and good attitude. Very sorry to leave. A model for all hotels. Best in Show in Funchal. The rooms were airy and clean, and the spa and pool exceptional. Food delicious. Staff well trained and exceeded all possible expectations. Well Done!
