10.0 Excellent
Pros: The best hostel we’ve been to. The hostel is situated in the centre of Ponta Delgada, it looks exactly the same as the photos are showing, it’s super clean thanks to the lovely ladies. Our room was spacious and very comfortable. The breakfast was amazing, the pancakes each day are a bit different, each day there is also a nice surprise that looks and tastes great. Staff that is serving the breakfast is super nice. They really care about food allergies and easily adapt the menu, so you are not missing out on anything. The kitchen area is great, very clean and well-organised, so it’s easy to use whenever you need it. It’s also well-equipped. Each night hostel staff organises a family dinner, each time it’s a different kind of food and drinks. We’ve attended most of them, just because the food prepared by their chefs was so delicious, as well as all the drinks served for the dinner. The atmosphere during the dinners is always great, it’s easy to get to know everyone around the table, as well as talk to the staff. They have their own trips each day to different parts of the island and the lady that organises them is super nice, also - she can easily adapt to the changes of the weather and she comes up with a new plan for the trip. The pool was great. I loved the ducks:) the whole garden is a great place to chill for a bit. And finally... I need to say that I had the best private doctor there. I broke my toe on the second day, and “Doctor” Patrick that works there took care of that for me every day. The staff really cares about you and during your stay there you can really feel like it’s your little family in Ponta Delgada. Had the best week with Out of the Blue crew and we would love to go back there in the future.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: The Hostel has a very friendly atmosphere. The room has exceeded our expectations, with a design typical of a boutique hotel and very high comfort and amenities. The breakfast was one of the best ever (international cuisine), though to my preference it could also include more traditional ingredients.

All the staff is nice, especially Fillipe and Martina and everyone from kitchen. Great vibes here. Very good for socialize with all kind of ages.
Cons: I would improve in the future the bunk beds, they are really beautiful, new, wooden, just if you are on the lower one (which i normally prefere), you cannot sit comfortably as it is not high enough. A little shelf next to the bed for telephone, glasses... would be usefull too.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Very good reception. Great ambience. Super friendly. Great breakfast! Fantastic garden. Highly recommended.
7.5 Good
Pros: They did try with the breakfast but it wasn't thought through. I couldn't tell who was in charge. A stronger leader is required to direct proceedings. The atmosphere appeared to be very friendly.
Cons: The breakfast arrangements were disorganised. I was presented with food that I had not requested. They were unable to provide me with what I requested such as meat or cheese. Some of the staff seem to be unable to communicate with their customers. Not being able to lock up my possessions in my room made me uneasy and not able to fully relax. The noise from the entertainment rooms on the ground floor could clearly be heard in the dormitory but it did stop at a reasonable time The breakfast table was insecure and unsafe. I wasn't convinced that there were adequate wash rooms. The light fitting in the bathroom was unsafe. The photographic exhibition wasn't just of the Azores.( amissed opportunity)
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The owner Philipe is very friendly and he takes care of guests. Also other staff members. The place is perfectly clean, beautifully decorated, new towels and bed linens. We had a comfy double bad and a nice private bathroom. Breakfasts were delicious, served in the garden, every day one different main dish besides cereals with yogurt, fresh fruits and pancakes (every day different). Hostel is ideally located, just few steps from the main square. Although we’re over 50 y.o. and for my husband it was “the first time experience at the hostel”, we both like this place and can recommend even to demanding guests.
Cons: Nothing

10.0 Excellent
Pros: This was our home away from home in the Azores. We felt so welcome. We valued that we could check in every day with our hosts to ask their tips for the island. The bed was the most comfortable bed of our four week trip! We didn't rent a car, but Casa da cidade turned out to be the perfectly located to explore downtown. All of the tours we booked were able to pick us up easily. The breakfast is delicious with locally sourced fruit, breads, butter and cheeses.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Nobody knows Sao Miguel like Pedro! Prepare yourself for the BEST local tips you will ever receive from a host. He has maps with recommendations for every part of the island, which he'll gladly print out and talk you through over breakfast. Breakfast, by the way, is incredible! Everything is fresh from the local farmer's market. Our favorite part of the day was sitting on his beautiful outdoor patio, sipping coffee, and chatting with Pedro and other guests. (Ask him to tell you some jokes about Terceira and Algarve, hehe.) This was our second visit to Sao Miguel, and thanks to Pedro, we found new favorite restaurants and places. Casa da Cidade is hospitality at its best.

Pros: Paula was very accommodating and friendly. Her daughter offered some translation help when we needed it. Me and my boyfriend longboard and the property is a 10 minute walk away from a little arena and skate park which we loved. Has a casual hostel like feel which as someone who stays in many hostels and works at a hostel I enjoyed. Very clean and bright with cute small white dogs :) would recommend. Obrigada!
Cons: A little bit loud from planes but worth it for the convenience of being near the airport. Limited vegan options at breakfast but good for a cheese eating vegetarian. There was peanut butter though and lots of spreads, and fresh pineapple and espresso each morning. :)

Pros: Housewife was absolutely great and kind. I hope I will come back.
Cons: Everything was perfect.

Pros: We really enjoyed our time at Villarelva. The house was very clean. We had the room with really nice view over the airport and the sea. It is easy to discover the island by public buses from Villarelva as the bus stop is in front of the house. The owners are very nice, always ready to give tips about the island and open for nice talks. The breakfast has many options, we loved the fresh fruits each day. If you rent a car there is plenty of private parking places. We recommend to stay at this guest house!
10.0 Excellent

Breakfast was absolutely delicious with fresh bolos levados from a local bakery and an amazing cheese selection from The Azores. Kitchen is great to cook and they have an amazing terrace where you can enjoy the dinner. Room was very cozy and comfortable, bathroom was clean. We have no doubts we’ll come to this place again!
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Our hostess Paula was wonderful, her friendliness and helpfulness made our stay special. If you are an airline geek there is an amazing view of the airport. There is off street parking.
Cons: We stayed in the small room at the front of the house and could have used a small dresser or shelves for our belongings. We slept with the window open to cool down the room and while it did not bother us, the traffic noise was loud late evening and early morning. One minor suggestion for the shared bathroom, add a sign asking guest not to close the door when finishing in the bathroom so that other guest can tell the bathroom is available.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We stayed 5 nights in a double bed room. We arrived after midnight, but the host Paula was waiting for us smiling at the door. She was very conscientious all along and made sure we felt ourselves comfortable. The villa has two floors. On the upper floor are the rooms for the guests, and one bathroom which is used by every guest. The villa has an own parking place. The breakfast is very tasty (several types of cheeses, coffee, fruits etc.) Paula speaks only a few words in English but every morning she came to us and adviced us where to go, she also gave us a map. The airport is literally next to the house, but there is no air traffic in the night so we could sleep. I highly recommend this place.
10.0 Excellent

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Breakfeast, staff
7.5 Good
Pros: room and its cleaning
Cons: breakfast could be better, position itself is not bad, but actually in the middle of a zone under renewal, new road, new buildings, this is the only building already renewed, everything else is not yet and so actually outside view is not good.
7.5 Good
Pros: Modern and new residence, comfortable bed, good quality of products, breakfast of good quality, small and intimidate.
Cons: Location is not’ good at all, the street of the hotel is having big work, so you hear the machines all day and it’s very cumbersome to find the hotel in the middle of the work (street is closed). When the machines final stop, until 8pm you hear the construction work of the houses near to the hotel being reformed. So if you are looking for relaxing stay,enjoying some time at the pool, this is not the place. But if you are looking to confortable nights and jumping early in the morning to do sightseeing and arriving late at the hotel just to sleep, it cold be then your choice.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful guest house, modern & tastefully decorated. The buffet breakfasts were wonderful with lots of choice and variations every day. Freshly baked cake etc every day
Cons: The area of Sao Roque is on the outskirts of Ponta Delgada & is a fair walk to the centre. We love to walk so it wasn’t a problem for us but could potentially be for some. Also the area seems to be experiencing some regeneration, which is a good thing long term but we encountered some building work going on and the road was being resurfaced during our stay. ( It will no doubt be finished now!) This didn’t impact too heavily on the quality of our stay as we were out exploring most of the time.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: Everything was excellent , except for the dinner experience.
Cons: Management should rethink dinner restrictions and offers. I suggest to take the dinner order while booking reservation for the time of the dinner. Also it is ridiculous, that one can not choose or share a suggested sampling menu and everyone should have the same order, or no one can try it. For the price almost 3 times higher, then all other dinner places we choose it was real disappointment.
7.5 Good
Pros: This was the first place I stayed during my week in Sao Miguel. The hotel is beautiful with an incredible outdoor patio area and pool. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast outside in the mornings was a great way to start the day. Inside the room, the kitchenette was very convenient for making small meals when I didn't want to eat out.
Cons: I was expecting a different room. The pictures did not seem to match with the room that I got, which appeared to be much smaller and did not have the fireplace that was listed as one of the amenities. My room itself was very dark, felt damp, and smelled a little moldy at times. On the morning of my checkout day, I woke up to several dead cockroaches on my floor. As beautiful as this hotel was, I don't think it is worth the money I paid for the room I received.
7.1 Good
Pros: The location is perfect and the deco is nice. The hotel restaurant is not bad but a bit pricey.
Cons: We got terrible recommendation for restaurants. If you're told to go to Santa Barbara Eco-Beach Resort, don't go, the location is stunning and the food is really bad, they just happen to be partners with White. The breakfast is a setup with plenty of different small items, I prefer a buffet where I can eat plenty of the same item if I feel like it. But it's not bad, We didn't try the pool but its tiny and the hotel has no direct access to the ocean. The hotel staff recommended that we go to the over crowded beach a 5min drive down the road, omitting to mention that there's a great spot for an ocean swim 100m away called Zona Balnear do Cruzeiro (it's on google map).
10.0 Excellent
Pros: I wasn't sure what to expect when pulling up to this hotel, but wow was I blown away once I stepped in the lobby. The staff, check-in process and our stay was perfect in every way. This hotel has a a phenomenal chef and we ate dinner there every evening. I hope to return one day as it was a highlight of our trip.
Cons: The only thing I would change is the storage space in the Junior Suite for luggage and bathroom toiletries. We like to unpack and it was a bit tricky to find a spot for everything. With that said, this would not deter me from staying there in the future!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Staff was extremely accomodating, the view from our room was literally the ocean, breakfast was fantastic and the dinner (not cheap) was amazing.

Cons: nothing to be disappointed with.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast was always top quality. Most of the ingredients were locally sourced, adding to the appeal. The view from the room was superb, one of the reasons we chose this location.
Cons: A stair handrail would have been beneficial, especially for senior-type guests. Otherwise, we would have to search to find any meaningful negatives.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The setting and location were excellent and both complimented each other beautifully. It’s hard to beat nature, but White does everything to enhance the experience with its minimalist decor and well chosen furnishings. Everything was first class. Made my husbands 60th birthday extra special. In addition to the superb decor and great food, we couldn’t have asked for better service and a special mention to Braza, who was delightful and gracious. Are very likely to return to this dream of a hotel.
Cons: A few more coat hangers and perhaps a shelf under the sink in the bathroom to store toiletries and make up would have been welcome.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The property was incredible. What a luxurious vacation. The infinity pool overlooks the pacific ocean, and it’s a great place to chill out and remember that you’re on holiday! The breakfast each morning is an incredible and decadent experience!
Cons: Only feedback we have is that our room felt a bit moist, and had a faint smell, most likely because it used to be an old wine cellar that was converted into a room.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Marguerite and her team provided us a wonderful experience, even when our arrival was delayed and we missed breakfast. Much to our surprise, a hearty travelers breakfast appeared. Marguerite assisted us with restaurants/ reservations. They really do know the island. Breakfast was the highlight of the day with a superb assortment of items. We loved speaking with the other guests each morning and so enjoyed the ability to make a cup of tea in the gracious living rooms, at other times. The Quinta is a European style guest hotel, located on the outskirts of town, but close enough to everything. Guests should know there are stairs between the levels, but is possible to move between areas by car. Our visit was in Oct.
Cons: Improvements to this wonderful place could be : luggage racks for the rooms and maybe a comfy chair

10.0 Excellent
Pros: This will be long. But worth reading if you’re going to Sao Miguel. This hotel is beautiful and charming. The decor is lovely and all details are cared for incredibly well. The rooms are spotlessly clean and cozy. The breakfast buffet is exceptional - it changes every day, and everything is fresh and delicious. It’s also presented beautifully. All of this was really great. However, the people who work at the hotel made our stay. Margarida is amazing. We assumed she owned the place by how much work and heart she puts into everything. She and Stacy went above and beyond to help us with every request for advice or restaurant bookings or activities. They are very warm and seem to genuinely enjoy helping guests have a good experience while visiting Sao Miguel. They gave very good tips for places to go based on talking with us and understanding our interests (e.g. Stacy recommended a beach that was a real escape, situated below a jungle-like forest and surrounded by beautiful, very dramatic coastline, with very few people). Every member of the staff is very kind and helpful. You feel very welcome and relaxed. They’ve managed to create a unique atmosphere. I should also mention that Margarida and Stacy switched into overdrive when they learned it was my boyfriend’s birthday. We gave no notice and had a few unrealistic would-this-be-possible requests for the day. They went all out to try to make it all happen. They’re clearly well connected on the island and know it well. Margarida knew that I wanted my boyfriend to be able to have chocolate cake that evening at dinner and to avoid any chance of the restaurant selling out of their chocolate desserts, she personally delivered a chocolate cake to the restaurant in the afternoon as a gift to us. Imagine! If you’re going to Sao Miguel, I can’t recommend this hotel highly enough. Thank you Margarida, Stacy, Joao, everyone! -Molly
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The staff were exceptionally helpful, especially with Restauraunt suggestions and day planning - all this in English as our Portuguese was almost non-existent. The older building is beautifully adapted to its current function. We were there very early in the season -first week in April and almost the only guests - yet we were treated to a lavish feast of a breakfast which changed daily.
Cons: Thankfully, our bedroom had a separate, very quiet convection heater as the building was not using its central heating unit; thus the bathroom was quite cool - and humid - making it difficult to dry washed clothing, - and cold’ish to shower in.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: - Beautiful grounds and setting - Delicious breakfast with variety of specialties - Nice pool area - Great hospitality
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We arrived at midnight at the airport but there was still waiting someone to welcome us at the hotel (with umbrellas and all since it was raining a lot). Excellent breakfast with fresh homemade products (cakes, juices, eggs, jams...) with a lot of choice in a very nice setting. Helpful and very kind staff.

Cons: Rooms are very cold and impersonal. For families, the surroundings had no greenery. Only buildings

Pros: The staff was super friendly & very helpful. Their recommendations for restaurants in the area was excellent. The hotel had a nice gym & spa that we also enjoyed using. Breakfast was delicious and we loved the fresh omelettes that were made to order.

8.3 Excellent
Pros: Fantastic location. Our room was clean and spacious with great AC, sizeable bathroom and bedroom and comfortable bed. Elevator if you need it. We stayed for two days and then moved somewhere else for the weekend because previous reviewer noted noise from a nearby nightclub. After checking out of AC we walked by at night and disn’t hear anything. We really regret leaving AC for another property.
Cons: The pillows are extremely hard and uncomfortable. The verbal intro we received to the room was pretty rushed, as were dinner recommendations. But we figured it out:)
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful place in a great location. Wonderful amenities for the price. Owners were responsive, and check in was a breeze. Well equipped kitchen with a mini fridge!
Cons: Wifi was spotty. Fine for me, but my husband who works remotely as an IT analyst struggled to get a good connection. They were responsive in restarting the router, but I dont think the wifi speed could handle what he was needing it for. Not a huge deal, just something to be aware of.

Pros: Everything was great and it's really good location, next time I will stay there again. Cheers guys ;)
7.5 Good
Pros: Great kitchen, perfect location, super friendly atmosphere, staff was really helpful and so lovely!
Cons: Very few small bathrooms for too many people. I believe there were 12 people sharing the toilet and shower on my floor. The 2-bed-dorm was really tiny. Would have been more comfy to share with more people in a bigger room.
4.2 Okay
Cons: THE WORSE EXPERIENCE EVER!!! Rude staff with no manners! The first oerson tbat I got in contact there was a very unprofessional guy,half naked, laying down on the sofa, freshly woken-up from drunkness, that called himself a “receptionist” - unable to help me with anything. he was very disrespectful when I told him that I found Dirty bedlinen on my bed(a bed that supposed to be double but instead I got a single one) and, when I complain about this, I was told that I travelled on my own so I don’t need a double bed. Have to mention that I pif for a DOUBLE TOOM WITH A DOUBLE BED! Old lift! Very unsafe too - got blocked in it for a while and, when I pressed the alarm, no one came! Breakfast wasn’t included even if I paid for it! Doors from the room have no looks! Felt UNSAFE during the whole stay! No one to do my check out. Harassing me after with e-mails in regards to the key! If you want to have a pleasant experience in Azores DON’T BOOK YOUR STAY HERE! Managed to ruin my trip! Don’t let ruin yours too!

Azorean Urban Lodge - Ponta Delgada (Açores) - Pool
16
9.2 Excellent (258 reviews)
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The Azorean Lodge is a beautiful place to stay in a perfect location in Ponta Delgada. Excellent facilities including a pool and use of a kitchen. Miguel is an amazing host with his own very useful map and recommendations. We would absolutely recommend it and would happily stay again.
Cons: Nothing, it was perfect!
7.1 Good
Pros: Tastefully decorated, clean, nice pool. Daily room service, detailed maps provided. Kitchen supplies to make meals were adequate. Coffee/tea/filtered water was supplied.
Cons: We were on the second floor and it was incredibly hot, even with a fan. The common areas were stuffy, with no cross breeze, even with a door propped open. Ceiling fans, or a fan in general, would have helped tremendously, especially when people were using the stove. Probably not a major issue most times of the year, but since we were there during the warm season, it was uncomfortable. While the hosts were accommodating and pleasant, we never saw them, even upon checking in, as we checked in late. They were always reachable by email/text, but it would have been nice to have some face to face interaction, or even some sort of reception during daylight hours to ask questions and get recommendations. Quiet hours were a challenge for us, as we enjoy having Late nights either in town or by the pool and we were always concerned about disturbing the other guests as sound travelled easily throughout the building (I.e., while we were at the pool, we could hear conversations from guests in their rooms with their windows open). Larger bed pillows would have been nice, ours were quite small and uncomfortable. Good supply of dishes and glassware, although one night, other guests had company and there were not enough wine glasses for their group and us. Overall, I enjoyed it, but, make sure the hostel environment is for you.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Loved the location and the facilities. The room and kitchen were amazing. We met with Rita, who gave us a very warm welcome and an incredible map of the island. We used it throughout our entire journey and it was just fantastic. Fully equipped kitchen allowed us to have our own meals when we wanted (we had breakfast everyday and some dinners too and we got everything we needed such as oil, salt and spices). The location is great and we were always able to park the car or walk to the city centre. The mattress was comfortable and the decor of the room was lovely. They were even cleaning our room daily, a treat!
Cons: I would say a couple of things that I would have loved (and would have made us rate our stay a 10 rather than a 9): - better sleeping pillows as the one we had was tiny and not super comfortable - since our bathroom is external, I would have appreciated a mirror inside the room - the bathroom didn’t have a window so the extractor fan was doing all the work. The shower floor was made of wood and this wasn’t great insofar as smell. The bathroom always had an unpleasant sewage smell. Maybe changing it to plastic would be a better solution? These were just tiny things as we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely book there again.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Communications excellent. Rooms and facilities very tasteful and well decorated. Yard with pool very comfortable. GREAT response to a concern we had with the bathroom. The owners brought in people to deal with the concern immediately and they did a great job. Very impressive handling of the situation.
Cons: There was an odour in the bathroom when we first arrived but it was dealt immediately.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Really helpful staff, great decor, looked after like in a hotel but left to your own devices like in a hostel.
Cons: Bathroom smelt because of poor ventilation. The decking aroubd the pool needs some TLC.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Miguel and Rita are incredibly helpful and friendly, suggesting things to do, writing out maps with suggestions for things to do and setting you up with everything you need while you're visiting the Azores. Once you are booked, they send a welcome message, make sure you can get to the lodge and are comfortable. The rooms and shared spaces are kept meticulously clean, and the kitchen has everything you need to make your own meals. Laid back and relaxed guests and atmosphere. The back patio and pool are very relaxing in the morning and between adventures. Smart touches like fingerprint entry make staying here a breeze.
Cons: I would've liked another pillow, but I probably just could have asked and they would've been happy to get it for me. Not really anything to dislike here!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Miguel and Rita could not have been kinder to ensure that our stay was incredible, and it was. It was wonderful to have a fully equipped kitchen, a lovely clean room, and a personalized map of wonderful places to visit along with complete explanations. The icing on the cake was the opportunity to mingle with the other guests staying there so that we could share our experiences. We were there a week, and it was not too long. Not only did they arrange a car rental, but also they are mailing my husband's glasses that he mistakenly left behind. We would not think twice about returning, and I am already looking at direct flights back. You will not be disappointed if you are looking for a caring environment in which to stay.
Cons: Nothing! We liked everything.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Great location - easy to walk to the town center and other amenities. Facility, including the room and the bathrooms were clean and well maintained. Kitchen was well stocked with cooking amenities. The hosts were also very thoughtful in providing additional towels for beach or thermal pool excursions. Best part of the stay was the annotated map provided by the host Miguel. Miguel was also very helpful in providing tips about food and drinks around island, as well as making reservations at local restaurants.
Cons: Couple of minor requests: perhaps it is not needed most of the year, but a small table fan or something would have been nice to have in the room. It got very hot in the room at night - I tried to cool it by keeping the windows open at night but that let in lot of insects including mosquitoes. Also - heads up, there are no toiletries (shampoo/soap) provided for the shower. No a big issue as it is easy to buy at the supermarket nearby.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Miguel was an amazing host and the map provided was invaluable in making the most of our time in Sao Miguel. The property is absolutely beautiful. We loved our room, the kitchen, and the pool!
Cons: The lodge is quite walkable to all of Ponta Delgada, though it's on the edge of town so some of the main attractions are a 15-20 minute walk. It's right next to the airport, so there were some loud jets early in the morning and late at night. We did see two cockroaches in the kitchen, but they were far enough away from our room that we weren't bothered by them.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great host. Excellent tips of where to go, including a very useful map of the island. He was quick to respond to questions. Towels to use at the hot springs were provided so we didn't spoil our beach towels. Our ensuite room was cleaned daily. We really enjoyed our stay.
6.7 Good
Pros: Common areas were comfortable and clean. Location is decent, 15 min walk from centre. Room was clean. Check in process easy. Strong fan in our room.
Cons: Was described to me as a basic hotel, not a hostel, but having stayed in both hostels and hotels - it is definitely a hostel. Two crappy pillows per double bed, bathroom shower head at waist height, basic amenities, old towels. Also, AUL is in the airport’s flight path and it is pretty loud! Wish I had caught this in reviews prior to our stay. All this would have been fine had we stayed in the fall, winter or spring. We stayed in the summer (end of Aug). It was hot and humid, and so was our room! Can’t leave windows open at night for airflow because there are no screens in windows and apparently bugs will fly in. Struggled to sleep. If you are on a budget, I recommend in cooler months but definitely not in the summer - unless you really don’t mind the heat! Also, worth saying that my low rating may have more to do with goodness of fit - AUL just wasn’t what we were looking for in a property.

Cons: Big problem with servicing/cleaning our room. Three days it did not get done! Hotel gave us a nice ‘sorry ‘ gesture of wine and cheese but that did not remove the frustration. Also, the gym was poor. Low ceiling so my husband would bang his head when using the running machine. One cycle not working at all, the second one had a pedal which was noisy and half broken. The third one worked ok. Also a glass ceiling which made it very hot on a sunny day - perhaps turn the machines round the other way. We tried eating in the hotel restaurant one night only. We felt the food was pretentious and not very good - I couldn’t even cut my piece of wreck fish it was so hard. I did mention this to the Maitre D!

Cons: My room was very tired. The carpet was stained. It felt much more 3 star than 4 star. Again the bathroom was a bit worn and ragged around the edges. The reception on arrival and leaving was a bit cold.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Friendly helpful staff, quiet location. Historic building well adapted to a hotel
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff was super friendly. Breakfast was excellent. Beautiful decorated. Absolutely worth staying! And the hotel is situated next to the most beautiful church i’ve ever seen (on the inside).
Cons: Some minor malfunctions in the badroom: broken hairdryer, door didnt close but that was nothing in comparison to the excellent stay.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is 100% a 4 star hotel with very good facilities and a super comfortable and clean room. Breakfast is spectacular, with plenty of variety and traditional products to complement a superb breakfast. Note that the hotel's newly-run restaurant is probably one of the best places to dine on the island (from the food to the friendliness and professionalism of the staff).
Cons: As a less positive point parking is limited but we never had problems parking near the hotel.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The restaurant facility served complimentary breakfast, which was a typical European style buffet with local fruits, breads, meats, cheeses, along with eggs, protein, and all the other normal accompaniments. The evening meal was a typical Azorean restaurant menu with a nice selection of well prepared dishes, good wine list, and adequate bar. Prices were moderate, food flavorful, and service was very good.
Cons: The shower/tub could have been a little larger, but is typical of most European bath facilities.
9.6 Excellent
Cons: The A/C in the bedroom was on some sort of timer and would shut off every 2 hours or so at night. So we had to get up two or three times a night to turn it back on. The other A/C in the sitting room worked fine.
