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

As previous reviewer stated, the hotel serves the purpose. It is located within walking distance from Iracema Beach, next to a good restaurant and a bunch of shopping. We went there for the World Cup and asked the concierge how could we get to the stadium. He stated that he didn't know but was putting people together and he will... More

Decent hotel, best feature is that it is just a short walk to Iracema beach and some good restaurants. Room was small but comfortable. The AC didn't work very well but since we weren't in the room during the day wasn't a big problem. Opening the window at night provided comfort. Staff friendly and a good breakfast every morning.

A good location close to the smarter, beach area of Fortaleza and not too far of a walk from the rather tatty downtown along Avenida Monsenhor Tabosa. There is a particularly good grill restaurant next door and the beach is a few blocks away. It does suffer, however, from that dilemma of all hoteliers in the tropics - air con... More

This hotel has a very central location, close to shops, the beach etc. We stayed in Fortaleza for 2 nights and the room was perfect for what we needed, very clean with comfy bed, we also requested a room on one of the higher levels and we ended up being able to see the ocean from our window which was...
