    Great

    We stayed really close to our favorite places such as museu carlos machado. We found Michel Restaurant to dine in 600 feet from the hotel. We greatly enjoyed the a swimming pool:)))

  • 7.8
    Very good

    Very clean, large rooms, plenty of storage space, comfortable beds, attentive reception staff, free parking.

    A somewhat dusty interior, dusty furniture with stains on the seat covers. Wooden doors and frames warped. Very spartanly equipped for a 4-star hotel. Breakfast buffet rather empty.

  • 8.8
    Great

    Rich breakfast buffet. Location: 10 minutes walk to the University of the Azores, the marina and restaurants in the old town (highly recommended e.g. Taberna "Acor", Rua dos Mercadores, and 14 minutes by taxi to PDL airport).

    No coffee-making facilities in the room. Only salted butter at breakfast.

  • 7.4
    Very good

    The breakfast was very good and already available from half past seven. Beautiful lobby with seating and bar. The pool was also worth a visit, even if it was very small, but nice to relax in the evening. Towels are available free of charge for the pool. The staff were all very friendly and we got along very well with English!

    The faucet in the bathroom sprayed a lot and the double bed unfortunately had only one larg blanket instead of two smaller ones

  • 7.4
    Very good

    First room wasn't good. Asked at the reception for another room and got one immediately. It's standard hotel procedure. Who does not move has the bad room location :-)

  • 6.6
    Nice

    W LAN only in the bathroom. Disgusting toilet from the inside. Letting in bath water takes 30 minutes. Bacon had been in the heat box for an eternity at breakfast.

  • 7.4
    Very good

    good location, within walking distance to the city, large spacious rooms

    a little bit less choice at breakfast, almost only white bread, every morning only scrambled eggs with bacon and sausages on offer,

  • 7.8
    Very good

    The location is very well situated to the city center. And the views from the room are spectacular.

    Location. The staff is very attentive, helpful with meeting your needs.

    First floor rooms of the hotel seem to get a lot of ants in the room due to the ground floor level and the outside.

  • 9.2
    Perfect

    Hotel facilities, Romantic Package was very good value; Helpful staff.

    The restaurant. Was very busy but understaffed both at dinner and at breakfast.

  • 9.2
    Perfect

    Were rerouted to Ponta Delgada due the volcanic ash cloud on our trip to Flores and Faial. The staff at the hotel very service-minded, friendly and made you feel you'd like to return to the hotel. Free internet connection in the rooms which was highly appreciated in those circumstances trying to find a way out of the island. Rooms comfortable and modern. Absolutely fabulous breakfast!

  • 7.8
    Very good

    The rooms were a very good size for European standards and they actually have double beds which is a definite plus instead of pushing two single beds together for couples!

    I did not appreciate the discomfort of the mattresses. It was very difficult to get a good nights sleep. They are too soft and/or possibly too worn. As I only stayed for 2 nights I bore it however if I had stayed longer I would have insisted on a firmer mattress to rest properly.

  • 7.8
    Very good

    Great location and the staff made us feel at home.

    The price could be better.

  • 8.8
    Great

    Really good value breakfast and internet on room, also garage for rented cars

    Swimming pool and sauna is just to count, not really to relax.

  • 7.8
    Very good

    size, comfort and equipment of the room , availability and readiness of the hotel staff, the breakfast variety

    The fitness centre was poorly maintained. Both the treadmills we're broken. The first room i was given was not clean and tidy, but in a minute the staff change me to a new room, perfectly clean and tidy

  • 7.4
    Very good

    Food quality is based around quantity rather than quality. When we arrived at 0030 in the morning (flight from uk arrives 23.45 at airport) we were told we had no room and were being changed to another hotel for one night - all went well (the other hortel was good) but it meant another taxi ride and bed at 0300 rather than 0100 after a longggg day - I am told that this is not an unusual occurence for the Lincs Azores
