We stayed at the hotel over a weekend and thought it was a great value. The location is perfect, with most of the town's tourist spots close by and easily walkable. The staff is extremely friendly and seem to speak a number of languages fluently. I read all about the amazing breakfast buffet from other travelers and don't think it...

I booked this hotel based on ratings in Tripadvisor and as well the price. I would say this hotel is well maintained and has great customer service. I felt I received value for money, given the room size, location of the hotel, service and cleanliness. Right in the centre of town and easy to navigate. The hotel has some charm...

We spent four nights at the Hotel Talisman and we were more than pleased. Rooms are clean, comfortable with excellent free wifi and in a perfect location to enjoy Ponta Delgada. Buffet breakfast had something for everybody and the Pub was perfect for a night cap. Would absolutely stay there again.

Went here on the advice of some of the other reviewers but me girlfriend and I were not too impressed with this place. The breakfast was good, but the hotel itself was kinda old and a little grimey, I guess its just an old area. The garden was nice but thats about it. Beds were squeaky, and not in a...

We stayed here for a total of 5 nights over two stints during our trip to the Azores. We loved both our stays there - we had free upgrades on both occasions, to huge rooms (one with a separate lounge, and one with two levels with two double beds!). Both the rooms we stayed in were very clean. We visited...

Beautiful! We were there for a short time but everyone was accommodating and spoke more than 1 language. Clean, peaceful, helpful! I have been going here for over 10 years and it is right next door to Senhor Santo Cristo- a must visit it see Jesus!

Never been to Ponta Delgada before and wanted a base for 2 nights while on Sao Miguel. This looked more interesting than other 'modern' or 'run of the mill' hotels. Not disappointed from start to finish. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. Large room, clean with all you could want. Great breakfast. Perfect location. Excellent value. Charged 6 euros a day...

Fantastic hotel and the most helpful reception staff I've ever encountered, especially the young lady from Belfast in Northern Ireland. They are a credit to the profession. Stay here, if only for the brilliant staff. 10/10

This is the nicest hotel in town. The location is perfect. The entire hotel is immaculately maintained. I don't understand why some people feel that the decor is dated or tired. It is neither. The ambiance is entirely in keeping with the character of the city. The furnishings were in excellent condition. The room is a nice size. The bathroom...
