We stayed here March 2-5, 2020. The room was lovely and felt luxurious. We found the front reception staff to be a hit or miss situation, the ladies were very helpful with telling us locations of places and what places would be open as we were in Ponta Delgada over a weekend and it pretty much shuts down from 1:00 pm on Saturday to Monday morning. The breakfast was good and the restaurant staff were excellent. Would recommend staying here. Just one warning, as it is on a pedestrian street my husband dropped me off to check in and then followed behind a few minutes later. We were not ten minutes and went back to our rental care and had received a parking ticket. Was very frustrating. It costs 6 euro to park at the Hotel parking lot and is much cheaper to park at a meter.

My husband and I spent 12 days at The Hotel Talisman. We were very happy with our choice to stay here. We found it a very good location to walk to most things. We were a 10 min walk down to the water and about a 15 min walk up to the mall, Parque Atlantico. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. We had a lovely room that looked out on the park but had to move part way through our holiday as the people next to us were noisy and coughed constantly. The front staff were very good and moved us right away to a much quieter room. The breakfast was very good with local fresh fruit everyday, pineapple, kiwi, melon. The fruit changes from day to day. They also have little bananas, waffles, melted chocolate, yogurt, cheese, jams, cereals, meats, eggs.and so much more. The only complaint I would have is the coffee could be better. The breakfast staff are amazing and are always there with anything you need. We didn't try the restaurant for dinner but heard it was amazing. We did have a dessert there on our Hungry Whales foodie tour though and it was so good! The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. Both rooms had a little refrigerator. We enjoyed the roof top pool with an amazing view of the city. We used the pool and it was lovely with a roof if it happened to rain! Pool towels can be signed out at the front desk. It cost us 10 Euros to get a taxi to this hotel from the airport. Highly recommend this Hotel and would come back.

This is a charming heritage hotel centrally located. We stayed in the original part of the hotel and were fortunate enough to have a mini balcony to sit on. The front desk staff are informative and friendly. The breakfast was okay with a dispensing machine for your hot drinks. We stayed for 4 nights and found it odd that we were allowed 1 glass bottle of water (refillable) and 4 tea bags as a welcome gift with the option to purchase more. Both of those items are so inexpensive - for us to purchase or a hotel to supply. Just seemed odd to cheap out on something like that. We felt the attention to energy saving with hallway lights only activating when you walked near them was great but at the same time, the hotel still uses small throw away plastic shampoo bottles and little bars of soap. If there was any cost savings to be had, they should consider using wall mounted dispensers. We did not book this hotel independently as it was part of our package though Azores Getaways so cannot comment on the cost compared to other hotels in city.

The Talisman Hotel in downtown Ponta Delgada was a great choice for my last visit. The small lobby off the road was welcoming, as was the clerk at the desk who checked me in. Even though it was before the normal 2pm check in time, they had a room and in no time, I was in the elevator just off the large covered atrium and on my way up to my very clean room on the second floor. My room, while bring an interior double, was well lit by a window opening to the atrium, very spacious with a queen bed that could be separated, a seating are with table and two chairs, a large flat screen TV and luggage rack. The alcove before the bathroom had a sink with mirror, a good supply of plush towels and toiletries, opposite was a nice sized closet with built in drawers and a safe. The bathroom held a bidet, toilet and large tub with shower. It was deep and offered a nice soak. They have an emergency cord just outside the tub but with enough length to grab if needed. The hotel is next to the Padre Sena Freitas Garden and the restaurant cafe opens out onto it. They offer a very good breakfast, either buffet which had a good selection or a la carte. Lunch and dinner menus was good too and the meals delicious. There is a very large lounge adjacent with a small bar in the corner with a good selection of wines, beers and liquor to choose from which can be enjoyed in the very comfortable seats at the bottom of the atrium. Just off the atrium is a very large and cosy pub/sports bar where you can relax in big leather chairs, watch the sports on the big screen TVs, play darts or pool. You can also order from the kitchen and dine in there. The hotel has a rooftop pool and gym with a deck for sunning, with views over the city. They have a small massage room to help you relax. They have a small library with fireplace on the first floor where you can relax with a good book. Wifi is very good and offers good connection throughout the property. They even have a small play area for small children outside the library on the first floor. All floors are accessible by elevator. Next to the dining room and looking out onto the Park is a very good sized event Hall where business meetings or wedding receptions can be held. The catering is supplied by the restaurant. There is a market just down the street where water and snacks can be brought. A pharmacy, local cafes and souvenir shops are nearby. The front desk can arrange tours and car rentals. Overall an excellent option for visiting Ponta Delgada and a great base to explore the very walkable city. Obrigado to the staff for a wonderful stay.

We stayed seven nights and it was excellent value for money with lovely staff and a great location within walking distance to everything in the city, including local cafes and restaurants. We had a large room with a balcony overlooking the street- nice bathroom and two twin beds. Buffet breakfast was excellent and the staff would bring us barista coffee at no extra cost. We had two dinners there which were quite good. Nice little pool and patio area on the roof with great city views. Staff was very kind- on my wife's birthday we came back to find champagne and dessert waiting for us! Desk staff was very helpful and checkout was a breeze. We paid 50 euros a night and I don't think you could find such value anywhere in Europe, and we were lucky enough to be there in the middle of Carnival. We recommend it highly
