Hotel Monte Carlo

Top choice hotel in Funchal
Image by

The grand old Monte Carlo perched high above the old backstreets north of the city centre is a real delight for those who like a bit of character. Built over 100 years ago, the building retains much of its historical personality. Old photographs of Madeira and other bits of Madeiran heritage can be found throughout and the staff provide a yesteryear standard of service.

The panoramic rooftop pool is the cherry on the cake.
