Hotel Talisman is located very close to the city center/the old town of Ponta Delgada. Although it's not situated next to the ocean shore, it's about 5-minute walk from the promenade. Right next to the hotel there is a cute little park with trees and flowers. There is a well-equipped SPAR supermarket 3 minutes from the hotel. What is worth...

The office people all speak good English, and German, and perhaps french and spanish. they arrange things very well. Do not expect the swimming pool to be warm in February. I wanted to swim and it was too cold and I live in New england where the water is cold

The price was right, the location was ideal and the front staff very friendly. Be aware there a variety of rooms and strange corridors leading to even more wings. But the rooms were clean and inviting.

My wife and I stayed here for a few days last week on our way to Madeira and were very pleased and impressed by this smaller hotel with lots of charm and character. It is a converted old mansion and has winding brass and marble staircases winding from level to level (there are elevators as well so don't worry !)...

Took a chance on this one, as it wasn t clear to me with the ratings if true or not. But after staying a week on Sao Miguel we were able to discover that, yes, I would give it a four! What was best was the location, also spacious rooms and a hearty breakfast with changing fruits and sides, and...

We stayed at the hotel over a weekend and thought it was a great value. The location is perfect, with most of the town's tourist spots close by and easily walkable. The staff is extremely friendly and seem to speak a number of languages fluently. I read all about the amazing breakfast buffet from other travelers and don't think it...

I booked this hotel based on ratings in Tripadvisor and as well the price. I would say this hotel is well maintained and has great customer service. I felt I received value for money, given the room size, location of the hotel, service and cleanliness. Right in the centre of town and easy to navigate. The hotel has some charm...
