Hotel Orquidea, Funchal Portugal

★    ★   ★

No weather data found for [, ”Portugal”, ”Madeira”, horizontal]

A  central choice with simple unsophisticated facilities that please those who prefer a very central base with easy access to the main attractions and public transport.

The restaurants and fado house of Old Funchal are a flat, 200m walk away and the many shops of the area are almost on the doorstep.

The modern interior is pleasing to the eye and provides a worthwhile alternative to the larger seafront options.
