Decisive for our choice was the very central location of the hotel and the fact, that it is not a faceless modern concrete monolyth. The hotel has the charm of the purposes of the outside promise, and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. So centrally located and within walking distance to the water and all the sights, yet very pleasant quiet pleased us very well. The breakfast buffet with fresh waffles to order - we liked it. The portions at the dinner were plentiful, the selection good. read hotel review

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 ☺ read hotel review

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. read hotel review

    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 & Leisure
    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.

    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.

  • Room
    4.0

    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. read hotel review

2 weeks at the talisman-it was great. Our room was right over the terrace, that is, above the restaurant. It was big and spacious, the furniture was according to the 'mansion' selected. The bathroom was also big enough, equipped with bathtub and shower. Daily the rooms were cleaned and the towels were changed. Since the room directly above the restaurant lag, it was partly rather noisy. In the morning we were from tellerklappern or woken up from the neighbors, as the walls are very thin were. You could almost every word understand-if one the languages. But with the time habituated ... you get. For guests, the also in the vacation not on the internet want, free wi-fi is available. In the information material in the hotel is the key, so that you would settle down surfing. A average age of the guests you cannot designate, from 20 to 70 years of everything thereby. The only small point of criticism was the breakfast. There was really each day the same sort of boiled ham and the same 2 types of cheese. And the 14 days! Ok, there were also scrambled eggs and fried eggs with different side dishes (bacon, sausages and thick beans), but eventually you would for a further sausage sort have been grateful. On request but also waffles. The evening in the town or the port (both right next to the hotel), there it also in the hotel itself at the end. The food in the restaurant tasted good, the service was great and there is also a bar, in the you immediately felt comfortable. And completely great was also the pool on the roof. You had a super view over the city or the atlantic ocean. Even the planes, the landing over the hotel flew, were not really. It was really a great vacation. read hotel review

For cleanliness was provided daily. There was no reason to complain. The 1st day we noticed, that the shower head was broken. Since we the cleaning person but hardly noticed, we put a note in the bathroom with the indication. As soon as we returned from the tour back, the shower head was replaced!

    The hotel is located in close proximity to the city and the harbor. Walk it only takes a few minutes in the middle in the commotion. The road passes right behind the park in front of the hotel and you can hear the car tyre squeal. But that's not it, the driver so lawn, but rather on the road itself. We have tried it myself; are very slowly around the curve-and still squeaked it. Since we had only booked breakfast, we had the opportunity, the many large and small restaurants in the place to test-there is something to suit every taste. You should-if you have a good driver, or a good driver with-definitely take a rental car, to really all stains the island. Recommend: cheap rented cars. de. However, if you do not independently want to drive, the swiss 'Josef steininger', the its stood at the harbor, excursions.

    The hotel staff were really very nice. If you grumpy or 'silent' describes, you probably didn't mentioned. Because we were always very friendly served. But you can only with english (or portuguese) maintained. As we only had very poor english, we had at the beginning of a few problems, but during the time we were always courageous and came it to the round. You can't demand, that all the staff different languages.

    In the hotel there was a restaurant and two bars. The food in the restaurant was good, plentiful and varied. The only downside was the terrace. In the evening, you sat very good, but for breakfast it was hardly work, because they fully pigeons has been hijacked. The waiters were endeavored, quickly to clear the tables and set them again, came not always afterwards, so that it already times occur, that the pigeons time had, the tables to loot. It was not as nice. Over the breakfast i above already reported.

Very friendly and speedy staff, always make an effort. Had a room in the courtyard (the air conditioner was very loud ), after complaint we got immediately a room with a view of a side street. The hotel is in a perfect location. You can reach on foot all important (car rental ' ilha Verde', harbor, shops, attractions.). With light, not disturbing noise is to be expected, since central location. Breakfast buffet is standard but ok and enough. The hotel-restaurant (lunch and dinner ) is recommendable and we also by the locals busy.
