Location, view, staff. I had a great time, the staff was great, so were the other guests for that matter! The view from the deck was stunning, and there are major cultural attractions within meters of the hotel. Regardless of when I got up and out, the room was cleaned and ready when I got back. The TV lounge was underused, which was a shame as... what people say » it has a great view of the city. - A great view from the hotel which,although on a hill, was very central and ideally situated near the centre of Funchal. The taxi from central Funchal to the hotel only cost 4 euros. The hotel had an old world charm.
