Great location and welcoming helpful staff

Posted May 11, 2017 on Hotels
The hotel was very clean & comfortable with helpful staff and management. I stayed here after my husband was hospitalized in the middle of our transatlantic cruise. The breakfast was excellent with delicious local fare, and plenty of it, included in the price of the room.

Bring back the 80's!

Posted Jun 12, 2016
If you're looking for a 1980's Holiday Inn experience, this is your place. "Vintage" furniture complete with TV of the same era, mildewed shower curtains, and poor wifi reception in the room. Spacious rooms, convenient parking. and central location.

Thank you for taking your time to write a review about your stay at Hotel do Colégio. We can see the Hotel didn't quite meet your expectations. We agree with you when you say we need some modernization. The Hotel is going to be closed for a couple of months so we can make some changes and provide a better experience to our guests, that conjugates modern comfort with the magic atmosphere of an historial building. We do hope you feel like we deserve a second chance to surprise you. Best regards

Great older, in-town hotel - lots of character

Posted May 22, 2016
Pros: Comfort, staff, hospitality, friendliness of other travelers
Cons: not much - cosmetic renovations are coming
Location: Hotel is located a 3-minute walk from Ponta del Gado center - stores, restaurants, port, everything within walking distance.
My fourth stay at the Colegio; while staff has changed, quality has not. Hotel could stand some cosmetic renovations; they are scheduled for January 2017. In-hotel restaurant is one of if not the best restaurant on the island.

Nice hotel but wifi very, very poor.

Posted Apr 27, 2016 on Hotels
Nice hotel for the price we paid, very centrally located. Breakfast nice even though very cramped in the breakfast room. Our only issue was the Wifi. Do not use this hotel if you want Wifi. It is completely unreliable and almost nonexistant. There is no excuse for a hotel not offering high speed wifi in this day and age.

Thank you for your review. We are very sorry about the wifi. There are some rooms, specially the ones on the third floor, with low coverage. We are going to do some work in the hotel very soon, not only to improve the facilities but also to modernize some of our equipments. We will have your opinion in mind, for sure. Best regards, Hotel do Colégio Staff

Close to the city center and the port

Posted Oct 17, 2015
Pros: Location
The hotel and the room were kind of old. The equipment in the room was not working. There's no wifi in the room at all though when I booked , it stated there's wifi when I booked and it was an important reason for me to choose this hotel. You can only get signals in the lobby and the restaurants which means that if you need to do some work at night, you have to go down to the lobby. For the car park, you have to ask a staff to open the gate and the lift for you to park your car at their limited basement space.

Convenient location, do not expect too much

Posted Aug 27, 2015 on Hotels
The old quarter was very beautiful but most of rooms are in new wings with no special atmosphere. Requested connecting rooms and they are fine, except our bathroom door was broken and fixed by packing tape.
