We were accommodated to Allegria II building, 3rd (top) floor. The room was garden facing single room apartment without balcony with lovely view to the neighbourhood. There was no elevator...

This is a great three star location. I read the reviews mentioning the noise of the road and so I requested a garden view room and I had no problems with noise - I'd recommend doing that. The rooms are simple, spacious and clean and have everything I needed. Enough of a kitchenette to make breakfast and lunch (fridge, kettle,...

We stayed a week on the top floor of the Alegria building which has a private garden with cooking facilities. Our room was spotlessly clean and serviced every day.

An excellent position near to the centre of Funchal. The people were very friendly and helpful, with daily cleaning although an apartment hotel.
