Dear reader, We were in the 2. Jan week 2014 in the hotel mascot. It is a wonderful hotel, located in punta delgada, the capital of Sao Miguel. The hotel has a very own charm, reminded me of an old, the hotel developed villa. I am glad to have booked this hotel and not one with new glass/steel architecture. The food is excellent, the steaks are the best i've ever eaten, the buffet (the fr + Sam) is for 17 Euro p. p a real culinary highlight. We have three tours on futurismo booked, amongst others, the whale watching with ... a speedboat/dinghy, very recommendable. The island is climatically all year for active vacation, a car from 29 Euro including kilometers on the day. Much fun in the vacation ☺ Bewertung lesen

The furnishings could have been better, but overall we are satisfied with the services. Comparison to the normal room was missing, we would have but from a suite for the money more desirable.

The hotel is - in relation to the standards in the azores - a very good hotel. At first we had a standard room and then a suite. The latter is just bigger and with balcony were, otherwise there was no difference. The hotel is located right in the pedestrian zone and is therefore always in the commotion with. Everything is clean, the staff very friendly and the decor was of very good quality - we are on the azores and not in Dubai. Only the gastronomy there is points to complain about: the breakfast is typical international and the ... quality/taste good. The atmosphere is for a breakfast room ok. However in the evening the same room for dinner and seemed more like a cafeteria. The quality of the food and the service is difficult. That is why from a dinner in the talisman or attached restaurant absolutely disadvice. Bewertung lesen

    There is a beach nearby, expects one in addition, not, if you booked a city hotel. In our travelbooking was also a rental car included, we deem necessary, to discover the island. Night life, shopping, restaurants etc. Were almost around the corner - the advantage of a city hotel.

  • Sport und Unterhaltung
    3.0

    Sport and leisure offers are as good as hardly available. On the roof of the swimming pool is rather small and the fitness center consists of a few pieces of equipment, of which the one or other also was broken. The entertainment was during our stay from current tvs and the possibility of pool billiards at the sports bar, and live music at weekends. However you'd expect in a city hotel not a large sport or entertainment. To us nothing was missing.

    The staff was very accommodating. We were with a small breach very courteous and helped wishes fulfilled immediately. There was no reason to complain at. With english as a foreign language came along one very well.

  • Gastronomie

    The dining is split dar. So good and varied, as the dinner was, so unimaginative was the breakfast. The telfair, that it on the english audience and every morning the same kinds of cold meat and cheese, and eggs, beans, bacon and bright, soft bread. The prices for the dinner, as well as for the beverages in the attached sports bar are not too high.

    The room had everything, what was necessary and the size was sufficient. The bathroom with bathtub, toilet and bidet, was a 'course' to reach, in the sink and closet were. A little cramped, but adequate. Our room was, as some others, to a interior light well, which we first when disturbing felt, then however as practically proved-you heard no noise from the street and you are in the room only at night. With a pure beach hotel however we would have this situation not accepted.

Talisman is no 0815 tourismushotel, but an english-style house with charm, all rooms are individually decorated. The balconies are typically portuguese small. The restaurant is open for non-guests very popular. Our room lay to the pedestrian zone. Flat screen tv only RTL and Eurosport as german programs. Fridge in the room. Hardly traffic-except delivery vehicles for the hotel and taxis for the guests. Breakfast and dinner are in the house and on a terrace to the park possible. In the pub, and special events take place. We had booked bed and breakfast (was well stocked warm cold, fruit and fresh ... prepared waffles, juice, coffee, hot chocolate, tea.). With a hotel pass we had in the evening 15% discount. The staff were all friendly and helpful. Safe costs 1 Euro per day. Wireless lan free of charge in the hotel, but some rooms have no front desk at the best one with the check in say, that you have a laptop. Sun loungers on the roof terrace were enough, the pool was very small and shallow-to cool off and relax, but adequate. A gym is also there. From the roof terrace a beautiful view over the city to the sea. The excursion offers in ponta delgada is very good. We can recommend the catamaran drive to the whale watching-was class. If neither whales still dolphins be found., you get a 2, drive free we didn't met, the didn't see. We were lucky: 3 time whales and 2 times more than 20 dolphins. Cheap rental cars are with various agencies to book. The port promenade is less than 10 minutes' walk to reach. The bus station also here you could get to almost all the inselorten done several times a day to leave. Among other things there are also 3 stadtlinien with minibuses the cost only 35 cents to exit. Alltogether it is a really great hotel. - not 100% for guests the a large balcony or pool need. Bewertung lesen
