Great, clean stay in a great location in Funchal. Sergio is a great host. There is no parking but there are garages close by for very cheap 24 hour parking. My only complaint was that the pillows were very cheap and uncomfortable so I used the blanket as a pillow.

Lovely spotlessly clean rooms. On quiet street but minutes away from where the action is. Sergio very helpful and sociable.

We would absolutely stay here again
Nice bright and comfortable room with everything you could need (hair dryer, fridge, kettle with assortment of teas and coffees, good WiFi connection). Sergio was excellent at keeping us informed and organised a taxi from the airport for us as well. The added bonus of seeing the Optics Museum and spending time reminiscing whilst browsing. The area has plenty of places to eat and drink nearby and it is a short walk down to the waterfront which goes past a nice little park. The only downside was the 4 flights of stairs which we did know about but hadn't really considered after the amount of walking that we did in the daytime! Definitely not Sergios fault but something to be considered if you are walking up and down hills all day long.

Great location right in the middle of town and Sergio was really helpful with suggestions of where to eat and things to do. Had a front room that was a little noisy if a car went by at night - only happened a few times and we were offered a change of room if it bothered us - but otherwise really comfortable and clean accommodation. And a camera museum built in! Highly recommended.
