Loved to stay in this place,in the middle of town without any noise and lovely comfortable rooms and a lovely bar and restaurant. The staff always went above and beyond. Great location from which you can explore the center of the business town and the old town.

Our room was tastefully arranged, but most of it was black. And with the small window with minimal natural light it became a bit depressing. The staff were helpful, but not eager. The issue that made us move to their sister hotel was the excessive use of bleach as a cleaning agent, so the bathroom was guaranteed to be clean,...

Hotel is funky with an eclectic design but the overall feel is cramped. The reception desk is squeezed into the area as you enter the hotel. There are only two chairs in that area which become quickly occupied when there are few residents coming or going. The lift is slow but not so problematic. The room was quirky with the...

Funchal Design Hotel cought my eye because of its design and the very practical central location. You can reach everything in Funchal on foot, also a huge shopping center is just two minutes walk. The hotel has only few rooms, nice and practical arranged, with a comfortable bed. Everything is very clean. The Wifi workes fast. The staff at the...

We stayed here for 2 weeks. Great service, from the friendly staff any thing we needed was no problem. The location is so convenient for the city centre, 5 minutes walk to the harbour or The Ritz. We never used the restaurant in the evening but breakfast was good. Only one issue we had was a broken safe (room 403)...

hotel in the center of Funchal . Hotel design but nothing functional. The windows let the light go to the room. small sink. Mattress very used. New hotel with young and friendly staff . No private car is tricky to park nearby . breakfast sympathetic with everything that is essential. room 401 with great views of the city and sea.

Stayed here for three nights, and considered it to be a convenient base for exploring Funchal - some 10 minutes walk from the cathedral, and around 20 minutes to the cable car station for Monte. The staff were extremely helpful and polite at all times, and made all guests feel very welcome. The breakfast was excellent, and in addition to...

As soon as we hit 'Rua da Algeria", me and my wife was like a little skeptical because it's a very small street, the Hotel is located just next door to a motorcycles dealer and/or repair, you know, not a typical Hotel location, after we get into the Hotel...OMG!, everything look very weird, colors, decoration, until we get to our...

We enjoyed our stay here but there were a few reasons for us only giving it 3 out of 5 (would rate it at 3.5 if that was an option) The service was great, always very friendly and helpful. Location was perfect, very central but just far enough away from the noise. Our room had a good view of the...

Wonderful position in the centre of Funchal. We had a top floor room with a viw to the fort and over the city, mostly white walls and big window. Very comfortable big bed, wifi was free. Small downside - the safe was broken but we were abĺe to leave valuables in the hotel safe. That glass wall in the bathroom...
