This cosy hotel is right in the middle of town, and has great views over the city from a little rooftop pool.
Hotel Madeira is one of the few hotels right in the centre of Funchal. And given how hilly this city is, it’s worth knowing it’s one of the few on the flat, too.
Next door there’s the Municipal Gardens, full of tropical flowers and shrubs. And the cobbled old town, with its cable car and 17th-century fort, is a 10-minute walk away.

Funchal, a place for all seasons.
This hotel is a good choice for a town location holiday. Ease of access to all facilities in the town. The hotel is set in a back street diagonally opposite the municipal gardens with a display of tropical plants and a coffee bar. During the day the surrounding streets are quite busy as all streets in Funchal appear cut throughs. Once the refuse truck has been around 10 in the evening everything became very quiet. Any number of cafes and restuarants are well within a 10 minute walk. The reception area is light and airy and like everywhere else was spotless. The room was adequate with good shower and a firm bed. Our room had a tiny balcony overlooking the side street which because of a tall building across the street meant the room was always dark and required a light on. Wi Fi was good and the TV had many channels which retained english dialect and subtitles in local tongue. Only problem there was no channel guide available which meant lots of channel surfing. Breakfast was adequate with three hot items each day. Always scrambled egg +2. cereals, fruit, toast and a continental selection. It would have been nice to have a fridge, tea and coffee making facility and a safe you didn't have to pay 12 euros to use. On arrival there is a bottle of water in the room with a tag on it. I looked at the tag expecting it to say something like 'have a drink on us' only for it to say '2 euros'. Two minutes walk away is the la Vie shopping centre with a large supermarket where a bigger bottle costs 25 cents. The choice is yours ! We found the housekeeping staff very smiley and friendly. Perhaps the reception staff could learn something from them.More
Good hotel with great location
My wife and I stayed here for a week as part of a TUI package. The hotel is central and it is a short walk downhill to the harbour. It is very convenient and means no trekking up hills each day. The room was good & well serviced each day. There was a good choice at breakfast. We had a small, enclosed balcony, but not a very inspiring view. Occasional traffic noise is heard from the side road outside the hotel. The staff were friendly, and we enjoyed our stay.More

Amazing location - close to everything!
Location was excellent: very central, close to the harbor and old town The staff were friendly and helpful. You are close to everything: walking distance to loads of restaurants (pizza, sushi, etc.), attractions, also right next to a park and large shopping mall with a supermarket for everything you need – they have a stand from where you can buy cooked food and eat there, at very good prices! Lots of type of cookies – amazing taste and fresh. The rooftop pool and bar: a lovely place to relax and enjoy a beautiful view of Funchal Breakfast was fresh with a reasonable choice: simple, good to start a day, but I would like more vegetables (no tomatoes – only cucumber, salad, carrots). The room was comfortable, clean, made every day, the AC was ok. Rooms was not large but good – even a couch, good Wi-Fi, the plastic sheets on the beds are a bit strange, no fridge. The view was on a small inside terrace with two very nice parrots. The bathroom was big with a great/big shower with good pressure and enough toiletries. There is a book corner near reception so you can pick a book to read – not so many hotels offer this.More
Found this hotel clean, comfortable and friendly staff. Food good too. Would definitely return. Situated just slightly back from front and nearer the older part of town, so not disturbed by later night traffic. Swimming pool adequate for quick dip, but on rooftop.More
Lovely staff and great location
My husband and I spent a week here and thought the hotel was very good. Location was excellent and the staff were helpful. Sonya and Miguel were especially friendly and the cleaning ladies did a great job. I noticed someone mention you could have a late check out for free but this is only if you book with Tui. We booked through Booking.com and had to pay €30 to keep the room until 5pm but it was worth it for us as it was very hot and meant we could enjoy the pool area for longer on our last day. You are close to everything at this hotel, the location cannot be faulted. Breakfast was fine but would have liked more salad and fruit available i.e. no tomatoes offered and fresh fruit not replenished so the only thing available were apples. Prices in the pool bar were very fair and there are lots of places to eat nearby. All in all a great place to stay and would definitely recommend.More
