Upon checking in and checking out the experience was really convenient and wonderful. We arrived much earlier than check in time but were permitted to leave our luggage in the staff room for safe keeping. For check in the entry code and key were so easy and quick. The room and common area were very clean! Not a spec of dust. The bed comfy and space was cute. The best part of my experience was the service and kindness from their main office staff. They are so responsive to any questions and on our last evening we were very worried about finding a place to print our boarding pass and getting a taxi to the airport at 6am so we stopped in to ask for help. The gentleman was so kind and printed and dropped off our passes to our room and arranged a taxi pick up for the morning. This really was so wonderful and like having hotel concierge service. Thank you so much for your help.

Palatial and unique
We had an excellent experience at Casa Ateneu. Room #7 is palatial and comfortable, and the feeling of the whole establishment was one of ease and serenity. It is in the heart of Ponta Delgada, with restaurants, the harbor, and the farmer's market only steps away. The only issue, as others have commented, is that room #7 has a periodic problem of a sewer smell coming from the old pipes of the building. We got used to it, and it didn't bother us too much, but it might be an issue for those sensitive to smells. Otherwise, we were completely satisfied with our visit.
