This is a good hotel at a reasonable rate, near downtown beach of Fortaleza - it is a nice beach to walk, I'm not sure about bath, you hear different comments from locals about how clean or polluted the water is. The lobby is large and fresh, friendly people. Room is acceptable, although a little outdated, same with the bathroom.... More

As with many hotels, the public areas are much better maintained then the rooms! The foyer is lovely, the pool small but perfectly proportioned, the bar area convivial and friendly, and the breakfast room spacious. The rooms, however, are tired, and in need of a haircut. The beds are comfortable enough, but the table and chairs lack a robustness that... More

I booked on booking.com for a double room from the pictures and description it all appeared to be very good and what I would expect from a simple Brazilian four star hotel. Well i'm sorry for £207 British pounds of 850RS I was expecting a room with at least tea and coffee making options, a TV with European channels (Not... More

I found the said hotel really nice due to the location as it placed at the fortaleza center. The hotel is only 10 min walk from the beira mar street which are the most tavern/breweries and beaches as praia do futuro. I will visit this hotel once again when i will return to Fortaleza.

I love everything on this Hotel. The breakfast is the best! The location is good because you can find good atractions and orientation to travel around Fortaleza. The pool has a beautiful view and I felt really confortable in that Hotel.

Stayed five nights during World Cup. Conveniently located few blocks from the Iracema beach, though distance to Beira Mar might require taxi ride but they are pretty cheap in Brazil anyway. Pool is very good at the top of the building and breakfast room is located right next to it. Variety of choice at breakfast was very good, nothing missing.... More

don’t expect luxury at Hotel Praia but do expect good size rooms, a comfortable bed, nice pool area, lovely breakfast with a huge range of food and omlette/tapioca bar. Good location only 4 blocks from the beach and about 20 minutes walk from Beira Mar where there are many beach bars restaurants etc. We were in Fortaleza for the world... More

Very nice Hotel. 10 minute walking distance from the beach (Iracema). The staff is really helpful and friendly - desk, restaurant, cleaning ladies, everybody. One negative point is that in booking.com they say they are at Meireles. Another negative point is that the showers are vey noisy (I mean yours and your neighbours'). Although Meireles is quite close, they should... More

My friend and I stayed here for a couple nights during the world cup and found the hotel to be very good. We arrived early and were allowed to eat buffet breakfast and relax by the pool for R$24 (the buffet was excellent). The room was pretty standard, the air con leaked (this was fixed) and the bathroom basic but... More

I stayed here with my sons during the World Cup, so I will not comment on prices. The Praio Central is a rather basic hotel by western standards. The rooms are large, especially the junior suite (nr 501) which we had booked. Beds and pillows are OK, but somewhat hard and not very comfortable. Shower is fine, but towels are... More
