The Vine is the perfect hotel to stay in if you’re looking to explore Funchal. The rooms are beautiful and very comfortable (though make sure you’re at ease with your travel companion given the bathroom and toilet layout), the breakfast has a great variety of food, the staff are helpful, and the location is central (it’s also above a shopping centre). The view from the rooftop bar is wonderful. The only thing missing was a kettle and ironing facilities in our room to add to the convenience. Unfortunately, there was also building work going on close to the hotel and so this was quite noisy at times. Overall though, a great place to stay.
