Booking.com Guest Review GuidelinesTo keep the rating score and review content relevant for your upcoming trip, we archive reviews older than 24 months.
Only a customer who has booked through Booking.com and stayed at the property in question can write a review. This allows us to verify that our reviews come from real guests like you. Who better to tell others about the free breakfast, friendly staff, or their comfortable room than someone who’s stayed at the property?
We want you to share your story, with both the good and the not-so-good. All we ask is that you follow a few simple guidelines.
We believe review contributions and property responses will highlight a wide range of opinions and experiences, which is critical in helping guests make informed decisions about where to stay.
Contributions to Booking.com are a reflection of the dedication of our guests and properties, so we treat them with the utmost respect.
Whether negative or positive, we'll post every comment in full and as quickly as possible, provided the guidelines are met. We'll also provide transparency over the status of submitted content.
We'll use the same guidelines and standards for all user-generated content, and for the property responses to that content.
We'll allow the contributions to speak for themselves, and we won’t be the judge of reality. Booking.com’s role is to be a feedback distributor for both guests and properties.
Guidelines and Standards for Reviews
These guidelines and standards aim to keep the content on Booking.com relevant and family-friendly, without limiting expression or strong opinions. They're also applicable regardless of the comment's tone.
Contributions should be travel related. The most helpful contributions are detailed and help others make better decisions. Please don’t include personal, political, ethical, or religious commentary. Promotional content will be removed and issues concerning Booking.com’s services should be routed to our Customer Service or Accommodation Service teams.
Contributions should be appropriate for a global audience. Please avoid using profanity or attempts to approximate profanity with creative spelling, in any language. Comments and media that include hate speech, discriminatory remarks, threats, sexually explicit remarks, violence, or the promotion of illegal activity are not permitted.
All content should be genuine and unique to the guest. Reviews are most valuable when they are original and unbiased. Your contribution should be yours. Booking.com property partners should not post on behalf of guests or offer incentives in exchange for reviews. Attempts to bring down the rating of a competitor by submitting a negative review will not be tolerated.
Respect the privacy of others. Booking.com will make an effort to obscure email addresses, telephone numbers, website addresses, social media accounts, and other similar details.
The opinions expressed in contributions are those of Booking.com customers and properties, and not of Booking.com.

눉Lack 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.
눇Huge 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.
December 17, 2016
눇Extra comfortable apartment with amazing sea view. The owner was very friendly and the value for money is excellent. Location just perfect, hope to come back soon!
December 14, 2016
눇The 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.
October 22, 2016
눇The staff was very kind and gave us good informations and things to do on Faial and Pico! We loved the style of the apartment, very comfy, well we can say that we just love everything in the apartment...
October 2, 2016
눉The air conditioner does not get nearly cold enough
눇We 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.
September 29, 2016
눉everything was ok, nothing to highlight
눇great location and view on Pico island, very close to city center but also to the ferry. Very kind staff. Clean apartment, full of everything you need
September 21, 2016
눇Our 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!
August 22, 2016
눉Lacked a bit of light, maybe.
눇Very cosy and spacious apartment, kitchen seemed well equiped although we didn't use it. Terrace welcome but a little enclosed.
August 8, 2016
눉The 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.
눇Loved how there was apples and water for us when we arrived.
June 10, 2016
눇Absolutely great facilities. I wish I could own that apartment myself. Very central, next to a bakery, market and local shops. You even get Portuguese cable tv!
June 10, 2016
눇Location in Horta is excellent with interesting amenities within walking distance. The waterfront view is excellent. Room is very clean. Free parking on street in front.
June 6, 2016
눇Great location near town center, apartment is beautifully furnished, very spacious and clean, bathroom is large and well-equipped, parking in front of the house, friendly staff.
May 25, 2016
눇Fantastic location and value for money. The apartments are set up with care and all is very well organised. Staff is very friendly and considerate. The usage of space is great making you feel privileged, great kitchen and toilet. It does not get much better than this.
April 26, 2016
눉Some 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.
눇Lovely 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.
April 19, 2016
눉Too close to the street (some noise during the night); there's no elevator (although the people were amazing and they offered themselves to carry the bags!)
눇Location for the ferry and the apartment itself
April 11, 2016
눇The apartments are in a great location! The staff was friendly and accomodating to our requests. The rooms are clean and spacious. Oh, and the shower is heavenly.
April 10, 2016
눉Nothing worth mentioning.
눇Everything. From the staff that was very welcoming, to our room quality in every aspect, the hotel location, the view we had from the terrace towards the pico island, the price/quality relationship. Highly recommend to stay here if you come to Horta.
March 13, 2016
눉Strange bedroom lighting
눇Location especially with 3 double windows overlooking the harbour and Pico. Comfortable apartment with everything that was needed.
March 9, 2016
눉no change of bed sheet
눇location in between city and ferry terminal. cleanliness/housekeeping is nicely done. (worried initially for small guest house but this one is great)
January 8, 2016
눇Everything. 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.
January 7, 2016
눉Just be aware rooms are second and third floor and there is no elevator. Also position of electricity sockets are tricky.
눇A 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.
December 21, 2015
눉I 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.
눇The 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.
November 5, 2015
눇Better 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.
November 2, 2015
눇We liked the wonderful view to the isle of Pico just in front of our bed, the cleanliness of the apartment the big and clean bathroom. we found water and fruit as a present when we arrived. Chicken with a full equipment A very good place, strongly recommended.
September 27, 2015
눉A bit further from the centre than I would have liked, but not a major issue - still only a 10 minute walk.
눇Lovely staff, incredibly comfortable and spacious room. Convenient for the ferry.
August 10, 2015
눉The only thing that would make this place better is a pool. Otherwise it is perfect.
눇Beautiful 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.
July 19, 2015
눉There's nothing I didn't like. Even the church bells rang quiet and with a pleasant tune.
눇Kosmos 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
June 2, 2015
눉A little bit noisy sometimes, from road outside and flat above.
눇Apartment 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.
May 17, 2015
눉The 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
눇Great room, nice stuff, incredible views, a lot of helpfull appliances.
May 10, 2015
눉the ceramic stovetop didn't seem to heat up properly, nor did it come with instructions. In the end, I made different arrangements.
눇Many places to sit and be in apartment, very comfortable bed, nice setting.
April 25, 2015
눇Comfortable, spacious and welcoming water and apples. You can make your own breakfast in a modern kitchenette or go to a delicious backery nearby
March 16, 2015
눉Road 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)
눇Very comfortable bed, good size apartment, nice view over the sea to Pico, easy access to the city centre
February 23, 2017

눉Lacked a toaster but we did appreciate the coffee machine. Check out at 11am was too early for us.
눇The 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.
December 30, 2013
눉a 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.
눇excellent 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.
October 12, 2013
눉Nothing 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.
눇The 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.
September 18, 2013
눉Nothing - 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!
눇Really 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.
August 30, 2013
눇Great place in very good location walking distance from new ferry harbour. Very clean room with awesome view on Pico volcano. The owner is very helpful.
