Hotel Casablanca is located near to most of the tourist sights and is only two doors down from the imperial palace museum. We opted for the standard rooms at the rear in the 1970/80's new build. Rooms were clean and well appointed. The bed was large, which is a welcome comfort for those who are taller than most. The hotel... More

This hotel is in a desperate need of a serious upgrade. Our room was in an annex away from the main building. The lift was old and the numbers of the floor on the lift buttons had worn off showing old it was. The room itself needed a good coat of paint, the furniture was extremely basic and rickety and...

The breakfast was decent and along with the location next to the imperial museum was the best thing by far. Other than that, it was poor. A few of the expensive rooms near the front of the house, along with a seating area, make this look very grand (and it could be - it's a lovely old house). But most... More

Hotel is in an historical mansion next door to imperial palace in centre of Petropolis within easy walking of historical places, shopping and dining. The dining room has a veranda at the front which was excellent place to lounge and absorb the history within view of the cathedral and other palaces. Rooms were in an annex at back with swimming...

Stunning main house all decked out with period features. Romantic balcony on dinning room level. Restaurant food excellent and very good value. Breakfast more than adequate. Unfortunately our room was in a very 60's looking apartment block, work was on going to revive the front facade with new Windows which spoilt the experience somewhat, including closing the swimming pool (we...

A beautiful building, helpful staff, great location at the side of the imperial museum. The standard room under the roof was basically clean and simple. The breakfast was disappointing (bad selection of bread and fruit).

We stayed here for two nights after Carnaval in Rio. We wanted a quiet place to relax. Petropolis was perfect, and Hotel Casablanca Imperial is situated perfectly, on a quiet street on the canal, a couple of blocks away from the busy main street, but close to several key sights (Imperial Museum, Cathedral). Very helpful, friendly staff, a couple of... More

A beautiful building with a spotless room. The receptionist was friendly and helpful. Great location and fantastic breakfast. A little pricey but considering it was carnival it was great value. The pool is nice too.
