Great location and helpful personal! Within few minutes you can reach the city center. The hotel has small rooms, but clean. Great pool on the top. The breakfast could be better, specially the coffee! The hotel restaurant is fine if you decide to have dinner there. WiFi works only in the hotel lobby.

I wanted to explore the city and see the island, so I needed just a place to sleep and get a breakfast in the morning. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was clean. The breakfast was simple, but enough. The location is central, close to marina, cable cars, market, supermarket, restaurants, etc. Many people note the outdated look...

Good value for money hotel, very clean, lovely friendly helpful staff. Really good rooftop swimming pool and sitting areas on lower level. Perfect location. No air conditioning just a ceiling fan. Furniture bit tired but definitely worth what we paid. Wifi is only in central areas.

When you choose a 3 star hotel, you have to grade your expectations for a 3 star hotel. A clean room, with a decent shower, a fairly breakfast and the sympathy of the staff. That's what I expect on a 3 star hotel that is not so recent. We found all of that on Hotel do Carmo with some pluses...

I am not sure why this hotel gets such good reviews. The price is higher than of those even with 4 stars in the area, and with such positive reviews I expected more. The rooms need updating, the towels are hard, pillows or the beds aren't very comfortable. The bar by the pool is never open, although they will bring...

Thank you for the comment made on TripAdvisor, which took our best attention. We are a bit surprised that you didn’t enjoy your stay in our hotel. We started the renovation of the hotel in 2010 and tried to create an atmosphere of the sixties in all the rooms and public areas. The furniture was also recovered from that time...
