    Lack of clarity over whether we could check out an hour later. It would have been fine just to say no. We were just told a couple of different times simply 'maybe', without an explanation, and they didn't get back to us. Kind of perplexing.

    Huge bed Amazing view over the harbour and volcano. Sun streaming in to the room in the morning (but great shades so completely dark at night) Excellent value for money (off-season 1/3 the price - it would be worth the full price for sure) Very quiet.

    The apartment was great and the view of the water and Pico were outstanding. We loved this apartment and hope to return. The owner, Paulo, was very helpful and provided good restaurant suggestions. The street parking outside the apartment was convenient.

    We loved the spacious modern apartment and the location was perfect. Easy to locate, midway between ferry and marina, on a street with a great view of Pico.

    Our Studio Apartment was lovely. Very Comfortable with a sweet little balcony .... superb to sit out with morning coffee and look at the harbour. Barthroom and Kitchen were top class. Really Excellent accommodation. Right on sea front and a short walk to shops and booking hub for sea trips. Also walkable distance to ferry to Pico. Loved it!

    The only let down was in the shower, the drain was glogged and I had to keep turning off the water to stop it from overflowing and the hand shower hand was broken and water sprayed everywhere.

    Loved how there was apples and water for us when we arrived.

    Some internal noise - on the last night at 2230 the owner decided to clean out the room above, moving everything around scraping the floor, which ruined our early night.

    Lovely apartment, high standard of finish and a fully equipped kitchen. Bed was fantastic, wifi fast, bathroom large with a brilliant hydro massage shower. Location is along the promenade with Pico straight across the water if you have the sea view apartments.

    Location for the ferry and the apartment itself

    Everything. Perfect location in front of the harbour with stunning view of Pico Island. Very clean, serviced every day should you want, well equipped and comfortable. Very friendly owner who kindly carried my bag up the two flights of stairs. Shops, restaurants etc nearby as is the ferry terminal to visit the other islands.

    Just be aware rooms are second and third floor and there is no elevator. Also position of electricity sockets are tricky.

    A place to eat just next to the hotel. Parking just in front of the hotel. Amazing view to Pico Island, just open the curtains. Great shower. Huge bed.

    I have nothing bad to say. I would highly recommend this place to friends. The bowl with a few pieces of fresh fruit was a nice touch, maybe add a pastry or a few cookies and a little instant coffee and it would have been more than perfect.

    The Room was stylish and clean with a great view of the water/pier. We were traveling with a small baby and it was nice to have a full kitchen. The staff was helpful & friendly. There were maps & brochures for local activities already in the room. The location was perfect for exploring Horta on foot & taking the ferry to Pico for a day trip.

    Better quality than that I have experienced with other Apartments...bearing in mind that it is NOT an hotel.....spacious...views to die for depending on apartment....modern.....well furnished....super shower and waterfall ! Professionally run....good cafes-restaurants adjacent...10 minute walk to ferry terminals and into town.

    The only thing that would make this place better is a pool. Otherwise it is perfect.

    Beautiful location, beautiful view, lovely room, friendly service. They allowed me to keep my baggage there for a 5 days while I traveled to Flores without any extra cost. Very impressed and will be returning and telling all my friends/family about this little gem.

    Kosmos appartment is perfectly located on the waterfront, next to a bakery and restaurants, and above a great boutique. It is very comfortable with all you need and extremely clean. A super vacation location

    Apartment was big and comfortable with 3 windows looking out over the harbour, giving a super view of Pico. Reception was very friendly and helpful when needed. Self catering facilities were good.

    The owners should work more on providing the information concerning: A) transportation - buses on the island / ships B) nice places to eat C) things to do on the island, since there is plenty That would make the place perfect

    Great room, nice stuff, incredible views, a lot of helpfull appliances.

    the ceramic stovetop didn't seem to heat up properly, nor did it come with instructions. In the end, I made different arrangements.

    Many places to sit and be in apartment, very comfortable bed, nice setting.

    Road can be a bit noisy, even in winter - I imagine in the summer even more so. The windows are double glazed, which works well, but it might be a bit tricky if you like having the window open and fresh air (there is a/c otherwise)

    Very comfortable bed, good size apartment, nice view over the sea to Pico, easy access to the city centre

    Lacked a toaster but we did appreciate the coffee machine. Check out at 11am was too early for us.

    The view was fantastic. Location excellent. The terrace was very small but at least there was a table and 2 chairs. Make sure you ask for apartment K3 which has the best view.

    a couple of points only, the ceramic hob was erratic, more utensils (cooks knife etc) needed to cook a proper meal, and the shower was both low on water pressure and had an extremely slippery floor when wet.

    excellent value for money and spotlessly clean, i recommend the seaview studio upgrade, all staff were extremely helpful and welcoming. well worth the 9.3/10 rating given the cost.

    Nothing really. Noise from construction (or renovation) work in the upper floors, sometimes starting very early in the morning. But even though, it's not really much noisier than many hotels.

    The apartments are very spacious and spotlessly clean. Apartment, furniture and appliances are all very new and modern. Excellent location directly on the seafront avenue in Horta, view on Pico out of the window.

    Nothing - we loved this place! There was construction ongoing in ground-floor of building which woke us up in the morning, but that was a small thing overall and did not impact our impression of the place!

    Really really loved this apartment, nice and centrally located in Horta. Evidently very new, with new lovely kitchenette, living room, and bed. This place was immensely comfortable for us to stay in and relax and we loved the kitchenette to cook our own dinners. We also enjoyed the balcony, and the place was kept super clean. The staff (Sandra and Madalena) were also very helpful to us. We absolutely loved everything about this apartment, the price was great, and would definitely recommend this to anyone.
