    Superb

    most of staff extremely friendly, huge beautiful room with a king-size bed, hotel is exceptionally clean and well kept, perfect location close to the town centre, the ocean and the airport, restaurant offered typical meals a la carte and buffet for dinner on most days (delicious food!), a lot of cosy corners with comfortable sofas and armchairs in the lobby as well as on the floors

    between english breakfast, cereal and cakes breakfast had sufficient variety but over a few days a change of the cakes, cereals, ... would have been nice (we stayed 5 nights so had the same breakfast every morning)

    Fabulous

    Very good 3 star hotel, more like 4 star. Perfect location, excellent breakfast buffet, comfortable room with wide double bed and powerful shower, safety box in the room, helpful English speaking staff, good value for money.

    Room not sound proof and one could hear noise from corridors, especially from restaurant where tables and chairs were moved around in the middle of the night.

    You really feel welcome at Hotel Talisman. The staff is very service minded and friendly. The atmosphere is quiet and relaxed and invites to enjoy a coffee or sitting reading a book in one of the nice public areas. The interior in the public areas is special and different from what you see in a standard (business) hotel. We had dinner at the hotel restaurant all 7 nights - usely we go out to try different restaurants every day - but the menu was so varieated and tasty that we just didn't feel like going somewhere else. Hotel Talisman is defenitely one of the best 3 stars hotels I have ever stayed at!

    The beds are quite hard.

    Just a little gem of a place we arrived late but still had a lovely meal in the hotel served by very friendly staff. Breakfast was really good and the room perfect.

    I have no negative comments.

    Fantastic location as we were right in the heart of Ponta Delgada and within walking distance of everything. The staff were also great as they were extremely friendly and were always willing to help with any request.

    I found that the staff at Hotel Talisman were very kind and helpful.

    I wish there would have been an iron in the room.

    The front desk staff were extremely helpful in navigating the island.

    As other reviewers have mentioned there was a funny smell from the washroom. I found the location difficult to find with a car (we rented from the airport). I also think that many other places on the island are more worthy of mention and patronage then Ponta Delgada. I think one night is enough in the city. Spend the rest staying in the many picturesque places on the island.
