    Fantastic location as we were right in the heart of Ponta Delgada and within walking distance of everything. The staff were also great as they were extremely friendly and were always willing to help with any request.

    I found that the staff at Hotel Talisman were very kind and helpful.

    I wish there would have been an iron in the room.

    The front desk staff were extremely helpful in navigating the island.

    As other reviewers have mentioned there was a funny smell from the washroom. I found the location difficult to find with a car (we rented from the airport). I also think that many other places on the island are more worthy of mention and patronage then Ponta Delgada. I think one night is enough in the city. Spend the rest staying in the many picturesque places on the island.

    The quality of the food and the demographic, it seemed to cater to an older demographic

    Very nice breakfast, room was clean and spacious, friendly staff, close to the center of Ponta Delgada.

    Nothing bad to say about this hotel, well worth the money.

    The hotel is rated number one on trip advisor website right now. It is very clean but is a little outdated, but the cleaning staff are very professional and nice, and the rooms are spotless so the outdatedness doesn´t matter as much to us. The location is great. One of the reception attendees, a young brunette lady, was fantastic on her tourist sites recommendations. The other staff were okay. Rooftop pool and lounge with view of the city was fantastic.... Great for relaxing in the afternoon. Breakfast selection was pretty good.

    The dinner buffet on the weekend night was mediocre, nothing fantastic.

    Supberb old house conversion with modern wing. Wonderful staff great resturant. Central location. All sorts of nationalities.

  • Group of friends
    8.2

    It is a nicely furnitured hotel in a traditional local house. Completed with modern holiday facilities

    The only minus was bad bread and rollers at the breakfast. The restaurant serves good bread at dinner!

  • Family with children
    9.4

    Clean, good location, park, friendly

    buffet breakfast not replaced when some food finishes (or too late)

  • Older travelers
    6.6

    The location was perfect for a city tourist and the view from the room was spectacular

    they provide a water heater for coffee but no coffee or tea; the bed was poor quality; their credit card machines were broken

  • Older travelers

    This is an excellent base from which to explore Sao Miguel. We think it best to stay in Ponta Delagada with its more lively atmosphere and many possibilities for eating out, though there is traffic noise. The hotel dates from the 1930s and so has mroe character (a catagory that I think you need to include above) than most on the island. We had a beautiful room, though the facilities were definitely 3 star rather than 4, and the staff were helpfulness itself.

  • Couple
    8.2

    The staff was incredibly nice, pofessional and helpful. The location is perfect. the hotel is a three star hotel - not more and and not less. But the rooms are in good order and clean.

  • Family with children

    It's location was supurb! Close to the marina/pools, shopping, dining, other cultural and historical attractions.
