Lovely hotel with free parking in city centre
Posted Oct 21, 2013
We were delighted with the charm, personality, cleanliness, and staff attentiveness at the convenient to everything Hotel do Colegio. The entrance is so attractive, maintaining the character of the hotel's previous life as a school. Decor in the common areas is simple, charming, and comfortable. Our room was very clean with attractive matelasse coverlets on the beds, and an updated marble bathroom with excellent shower. The complimentary breakfast was plentiful and fresh, with many options. The free under- hotel parking was a huge plus in the middle of downtown Ponta Delgada. Cars must be taken down and up in an elevator to access the garage, requiring the assistance of a desk clerk, and all desk clerks were always gracious about providing this service quickly. There are some water stains on the otherwise clean carpets, and the pool (very clean and pretty) is somewhat awkwardly placed in the middle of a common area near the lobby and dining room. Otherwise, this hotel is a fantastic bargain!
