Hotel Talisman is officially a 3-star hotel located in the centre of Ponta Delgada, the largest city in São Miguel Island and the Azores. Located within walking distance of most attractions and the city, with easy access to the new harbour and marina that was officially completed in 2010.
The room was large, clean and comfortable, I was fortunate to have a suite (228) with a bonus lounge/living room, king-size bed, excellent bathroom (two sinks) and outdoor terrace overlooking the street below. Wifi included in the room rates. Other facilities include a fitness room, outdoor rooftop pool, with some nice views of the city and surrounding island. A restaurant and bar. Helpful friendly staff and service.
They went out of the way to try and get an early check-in since I showed up so early, much appreciated. Breakfast buffet style, with enough options to satisfy most. Hotel Talisman was a great choice, in a great location for exploring Ponta Delgada.
