I travel a lot , and finding good value means I can travel more. I also like to be in walking distance of the city centre and major attractions. Having access to public transportation is also important . At apartamento da se , I have that all. 8 euros return from the airport. And the stop is five minutes away. Close by you have many of the major attractions. Walk to the beautiful parks, the churches, the gondola ride, the Fortaleza , the market ...easy by foot. Nearby many good restaurants, a tea house , and so much more. The staff is friendly and always ready to provide you with the best information to help you with your visit . I was there a few years ago and was recognized as soon as I walked in. The fact that the rooms have cooking facilities, a microwave and a fridge meant I could stock up and stay in if I wanted to from a quick breakfast to maybe some fruit, cheese and pate in the evening if I was in the mood to stay in . This is a great option. The area is quiet so you get a great rest. If you want a big resort with all the amenities , then look elsewhere. If you are like me, and obviously from many of the other guests I met here , and travel a lot and want a more local experience , this is the place to stay .
If you're looking to use the buses to get around the island, you need to be central, and this hotel is. Room pretty standard, breakfast excellent (and breakfast room is on 6th floor with great views). Friendly staff. Wireless Internet (free) is only in reception area, but was working consistently. Also the evening meals in the restaurant were fantastic value.
We liked everything about this hotel. Friendly reception staff who spoke excellent English. Very nice breakfast. Very clean and spacious room. Ours had a balcony. Nice clean , spacious bathroom. Good location in the old part of town.
