A simple hotel where the idea was to create a unique environment that spoke the city language: Praia. With a privileged location, situated in a pedestrian street, it becomes a great base for any type of motivation in the visit to the city. Charming, cozy, and inimista theme, the decor is the high point of the house, with art objects handpicked scattered through the rooms and halls with the ambition to attract discerning and curious guests. There are those small details that have been carefully designed to welcome you in superb comfort. The distinctive elegance with a hint of extraordinary simplicity will surround you in a calm sense of well-being to make you feel at home. The melodious decor, attractive is smooth and unexpected, inviting you to enjoy some special days in Praia Maria.

long wait for signing in. room 202 2x3.5 m, no real windows (small inner court with smells). one 1 3W bulb not LED for the entire room. very dark, impossible to read. no bulb in second lamp. inconfortable bed. only boiling water for shower, not possible to shower. upon complaining they made jokes between themselves about myself. after 36 hours somebody finally came (after 3 complaints) and realized that not only there was only boiling water but that also the sink was clogged. ultraslow lift. breakfast without coffee, cheese etc at 7 am. some coffee arrived at 7.30 when i had to leave.

Clean, modern and well-equipped. Great location (on the main walking street). Nice terrace for breakfast. It can be a bit noisy if your window (or balcony) opens towards the street. Parking somewhere in the nearby streets should be prepaid at one of the machines.

If you don´t mind the distance to Quebra Canela beach (a 30 minute walk or go by taxi or local bus) and appreciate the closeness to Sucupira (market and aluguer terminal) and the "vibes" of the Plateau - charming Praia Maria Hotel allows you all of this. Plus rich breakfast. Great comfortable King Size bed. Nice view of Praia from rooftop. Spacy well furnished room Consider that: Make shure you book a room with balkony faced to the street. Do not be sensitiv to noise (it´s live music & singing) I loved it to sit in a comfortable chair at the balkony and listen to it.

Very friendly staff and great breakfast. Room is air-conditionined and clean and well kept. Unfortunately no windows to the outside. Location is perfect on the pedestrian street with everything within easy reach as well as transport to other parts of the island a short walk away.

Stayed here for one night. The hotel itself is in a good location with a lovely bar/restaurant opposite. The main reception is on the first floor and is a nice open space with sofas and excellent decor. The staff were friendly and the rooms were clean. However the room didnt have a window. Not a massive issue but it was a bit dingy and we wouldnt have stayed another night in it. Air conditioning was provided though and the wifi was good. The breakfast is tasty - a buffet style help yourself with the usual bread, cheese, jams, fruit and plenty of coffee, out on the terrace overlooking the town. This gives a nice view and relaxed feeling.

In the middle of the plateau of Praia, nice old pousada. A small roof terras for breakfast. Old English crockery and old pics of Praia. Helpfull people that arranged a driver for us and let us store our bags for the day. Flights to lisboa always leave in the middle of the night.

We spent one night here. The rooms were very basic but fine. Very clean! The natural light wasn't really needed in the room. Yeah, it was a little loud sometimes but it didn't really bother us. The location was perfect. Also the breakfast was good and served on the roof terrace. The staff was really helpful. The wifi didn't really work.

Location is pretty good, quite central, a lot of restaurants and shops around. Anything we needed was around there. The room was ok, nothing special but reasonable given the price. We were upgraded to a bigger room when we had to stay longer due to issues in our transportation to another island, which was nice, the bigger room had windows and the bed was quite comfortable. The staff seemed not to know much when we asked for information, we wanted to take a boat to Fogo and they told was there was one available in the afternoon, but when we went there to buy the tickets they told us there wasn't any boat. It also happened a few other times when we were asking general information, but they were still very nice and friendly all the time, and after the whole issue of having to stay in the island for longer than planned, they helped us out by upgrading our room, so they were really nice to us. The breakfast was great, it was simple but very tasty, good quality papaya, tasty omelet, fruitshakes, homemade yogurt, coffee, tea, toast, etc. Super tasty!

We stayed there twice: on the day of arrival and on the night before flying back. The staff has been super friendly both times; they speak good English. The location is perfect in central Plateau, few minutes from the market and other restaurants/bars and museums. The building has its charme but can be a bit noisy at night.
