More About Funchal, Portugal Hotels...

Where Is the Most Convenient Place to Stay in Funchal?

The nice thing about Funchal is that it's a very walkable city. The east side of Sao Martinho is where most of the hotels, shops, and restaurants on the island are found, plus it's convenient to attractions like the cable trolley tour for a bird's-eye view of the island. You can get very reasonable rates at good tourist hotels like the Albergaria Catedral Funchal, a neighbor to the famous Cathedral of Our Lady of the Assumption dating back to the 16th century. For something closer to the beach, the affordable Bright Star Madeira or the upscale Belmond Reid's Palace are both excellent choices.

What Are My Extended Stay Options in Funchal?

With a low cost of living, Funchal is a good place to call home for a longer business or pleasure visit. Apartment hotels in Funchal offer more self-sufficiency than a traditional hotel without costing more. The Apartmentos Quinta Mae dos Homens has great views and large kitchens for as little as $70 per night. Rates for Airbnb apartments and villas are comparable with hotels and most sites are in the same general neighborhood as other accommodations.

What Should I Know About Seasonal Travel to Funchal?

Spring and summer are peak tourist seasons on Madeira. Expect to pay between $60 and $80 per night at that time of year. That said, the winters in Funchal are exceptionally mild, usually no cooler than 65 degrees Fahrenheit, so feel free to make a December visit to take advantage of the drop in hotel rates.
