A good looking city centre base that attracts many guests from mainland Portugal and those who prefer a central option with easy access to the shops, restaurants and public transport. It is also a useful choice for those wishing to take the ferry to Porto Santo.
A couple of flat fronted, austere looking buildings which are linked at the ground floor and 5th floor levels. A narrow entrance leads straight off the street, beneath a huge mushroom like facade that stretches up to the roof. None of the rooms offer a balcony.
Property type: Hotel
A compact lobby becomes busy and cluttered at peak periods and a small bar with dark furnishings, is situated to one side. A pleasant restaurant with cream décor and modern seating has sturdy pillars and a bar area with stools to one side. The restaurant facility is popular with the local workforce at lunchtime.
A rooftop terrace is compact but popular and has a green grass like covering, around the small pool. There are views over the rooftops towards Funchal’s Old Town area and the distant mountains.
Area Type: In the centre of Funchal on a busy shopping street, 150m from the sea front road and 200m from the market. There are plenty of local restaurants and snack bars in the immediate vicinity but parking may prove a problem for those who have chosen to hire a car.
