Excellent budget accommodation in great location

Posted Nov 16, 2016
Pros: Value for money, facilities within walking distance, cleanliness.
Cons: Better quality mattresses. Mugs instead of tea cups. Larger TV.
Location: 15 minutes walk from the centre of Funchal so access to everything; shopping, restaurants, tourist attractions etc.
Just back from a week at the Imperatriz (7th to 14th November) and overall found it excellent. It ticked all the boxes as regards what I wanted which was somewhere clean, comfortable, facility to make breakfast in the room, in a good location, public transit access (bus stops) nearby and reasonably priced. The rooms are cleaned daily and fresh towels provided. Bedding is basic; however, I found it comfortable and more than adequate. There’s a ‘mini kitchen’ in a cupboard consisting of a sink, kettle, large fridge, two ring cooker and most cooking implements with plates, cups, cutlery etc. (anything not there that you think you need simply ask at reception.) Everything I needed to make breakfast and more if I wanted. The location is ideal; 15 minutes walk from the centre of Funchal, there’s a Spar shop 50 metres away, another small supermarket less than two minutes walk away on Avenida do Infante. As well as Bernini’s at the front of the hotel there are numerous restaurants only a couple of minutes walk away, including Moynihan’s; an Irish Sports Bar that shows all the sport live and a casino less than 2 minutes walk away, if that’s your thing. There are two bus stops less than two minutes walk away on the Avenida do Infante, connecting you to a great public transport network. As regards the cost, I thought the Imperatriz was incredible value and I would recommend it to anyone seeking excellent budget accommodation in a great location.

Pleasant hotel, good value

Posted Oct 20, 2016
Location:
Helpful staff, good value for nice room with balcony and flower bed. View is nothing special, though you can see the sea. Kitchenette was small but adequate. Small swimming pool and loungers on the roof. There are restaurants all around, a small SPAR supermarket outside and a small MEU Super supermarket a short walk away. There are lots of hotels in this area. One end of the harbour is a short walk downhill from the hotel. A short walk uphill is Avenido do Infanta where you can catch busses going east or west, and the airport bus.

It's quite handy for Funchal town centre

Posted Sep 2, 2016
Pros: Reasonably close for walking to Funchal town centre or towards the lido area. Friendly and helpful staff.
Cons: Air conditioning in rooms would be useful - none at present (but borrowed a fan - gratis - from hotel).
Location: Reasonably close for walking to Funchal town centre or towards the lido area. Lots of nice restaurants in immediate vicinity of the hotel .
Do check out things like availability of air-conditioning before booking (I didn't, assuming that this would be standard in a hotel in such a hot place in August...), and what you are getting with the roof-top pool, before booking!

HOTEL BIEN PLACE / SUPER POUR DECOUVRIR L'ILE

Posted Aug 21, 2016
Pros: PISCINE / SITUATION DANS FUNCHAL / ACCES PAR LA VOIE RAPIDE FACILE
Cons: PETIT RAFRAÎCHISSEMENT MOQUETTES
Location: QUARTIER DU CASINO DE FUNCHAL: 4 RESTAURANTS A PROXIMITE / SPARMARKET EN DESSOUS DE L'HOTEL / CENTRE COMMERCIAL LA VIE FUNCHAL A 10 MN A PIEDS.
Hotel charmant, très bonne situation en plein coeur de la Capitale; le soir pour manger au restaurant il n'y a pas de besoin de ressortir la voiture tout peut se faire à pieds. Le personnel est très sympathique et d'une qualité exceptionnelle (réceptionnistes qui sont là pour vous aider si vous avez le moindre problème et un service de chambre qui s'exécute sans que nous nous croisions dans la chambre. La seule chose à savoir c'est que le garage est étroit ainsi pour la voiture que vous prenez en location plus elle est petite et mieux c'est.

Prijemny pobyt v klidnem hotelu blizko centra. Mesto Funchal ma zivou atmosferu se spoustou restauraci a kavaren, ma mnoho zahrad, ktere stoji za navstevu. Na ostrove je moznost podnikat spoustu vyletu a provozovat aktivni turistiku v horskem prostredi i nenarocne prochazky po mistnich levadach. Presto, ze na ostrov se jezdi hlavne za prirodou, i v kvetnu byla moznost prijemneho koupani v mori, i kdyz v trochu chladnejsi vode Atlantiku.
