Hotel Albergaria Dias  

This family-run hotel gives you a pretty pool, great local food, and a setting that’s handy for trips into town.

This authentic little hotel is tucked away in the hills above Funchal’s old town. That said, it’s only about a 10-minute walk from the marina. Back at base, there’s a pool framed by well-kept gardens.

Breakfast is served in a sunny room by the pool. There’s also a bar where you can enjoy local snacks and wines indoors or out. Last but not least, there’s a small gym and a sauna to unwind in.

As good as promised

This charming small hotel is just as others have described. Perfect position in the old town; near all the restaurants; spotlessly clean; lovely friendly staff and comfortable rooms. Really enjoyed our stay, and would thoroughly recommend.More

Lovely, friendly Hotel

After reading such wonderful reviews for this hotel, I expected a very high standard and was definitely not disappointed. From our welcome from the owner Mr. Dias and his staff to our lovely send off by all the staff everything was nigh on perfect. We stayed in Room 207 on the second floor. The Hotel is immaculately clean and well presented and is a credit to all the staff who do their utmost to make your staff as good as it can be. The rooms are of average size but more than adequate, very clean and well furnished, all balconies face the sea with the upper floors having a good view of the ocean and harbour. Breakfast is first class with Mr. Dias supplying the most extensive and tasty fruit salad you will ever see ( a legend in Madeira, I understand). There is a small selection of hot food, eggs, bacon, sausage, tomato etc. along with cereals, the fruit salad, croissants, bread, home made cake etc. All very good quality. You can eat in the breakfast room or just outside on the terrace adjacent to the swimming pool. Having stayed in the Lido area on previous visits to Funchal, the location of Albergeria Dias is far better being situated in the old town and I shan't stay in the Lido area again. There are many, many excellent restaurants just a stride from the hotel and we ate at a different one every night and were never disappointed. All the staff in the hotel cannot do enough for you and are a credit to the hotel. I shall be looking for another holiday here as soon as possible and would recommend it to anyone.More

Return visit

This is our second visit to this lovely family hotel. It's situated in the nicest part of Funchal, in the old town, little lane from the garden leads to the cobbled streets and restaurants. Nice sea views from 3rd floor rooms and decent size balconies. Lunch here is good too, sandwiches are lovely and the salads are superb. Must mention Recardo's cocktails......yummy. Will certainly return for yet another visit to this wonderful hotel and beautiful Funchal, great for some winter sunshine.More


Best hotel in funchal

This was our 6th time at this wonderful friendly hotel with excellent staff.Mr Dias and his son are the reason they have repeat visitors as you become part of the family.Hotel is in a fabulous position in the old part of funchal.We visited to see the Xmas lights which were very nice.Will def be returning again next year we hope.More



Returned home Monday 14/12/2015 after spending a wonderful week at this little gem of an hotel situated in a great location in the old town of Funchal. Mr Dias, family and staff are very helpful and could not do enough for you without being intrusive.The fresh fruit available at breakfast is a must and not to be missed. The rooms and the rest of the hotel are spotlessly clean and would recommend anyone looking for the small and personal touch hotel this is the one for you. Book now you will not be disappointed.
