I got a good offer, so definitely got value for money here. Rooms are nice and renovated, service is good and friendly and the breakfast restaurant is better than average in this region. Though not at the waterfront this hotel is a few minutes from the central part of town.

We spent a week at this hotel in mid-October. It is set in the old town, surrounded by narrow cobbled streets and very centrally located. The building is attractive, with many period features and the decor is very pleasing. The rooms are large, carpetted and well-appointed, but views are very limited. The beds are comfortable and the bathroom is fine...

Stayed at the Colegio for 4 nights. The room was in need of updating. The AC leaked, and I noticed a number of water stains on the carpet throughout the hotel. I guess they have some plumbing issues. The room and bath were clean. The bed was very hard. The hotel is quiet and is within walking distance of everything...

Stayed at the Hotel do Colegio in September 2011. Our room, whilst large, was definitely in need of an update. Although there was a little patio with a small garden, our outlook was a brick wall. Despite that, it was very clean and everyone was very helpful. We ate in the restaurant for dinner twice during our stay and the...

Recently returned from a short stay at the Hotel do Colegio. The pro's to staying at this lodging include the location, well-trained staff and the lack of anything better in the area. Our room was rather small, compared to that of another couple with whom we were traveling. Given the disparity in size for the same price, I would suggest...

All the staff at the Colegio were very friendly and spoke good English. The hotel itself is also well located and is only about a 5 minute walk from the harbour and is near what passes for a shopping area in Ponta Delgada. The hotel was very clean when we stayed however the furnishing and fittings were beginning to look...

We spent a week here in August and had a wonderful time, mainly due to the exceptional staff who truly go above and beyond to ensure you have a wonderful stay. Every single person I met at reception was extremely helpful and kind, particularly Gida who we spoke to almost every day of our trip. She was outstanding in her...

Described to us as a "boutique hotel" we found the Hotel do Colegio pleasant enough, with more than adequate facilities. Nevertheless, for a 4-star hotel the decor, along with the fixtures & fittings, could do with updating. The pool area is quite small, as is the pool itself, with freezing cold water - perfect for a post-sauna dip. Sauna and...

Our room in the Colegio was comfortable and clean, if a little generic. The staff were all very friendly and helpful, and there is a lovely bar area downstairs. The central location in Ponta Delgada makes it a good base to explore the island.
