Our group stayed here during the core of WYD activities (from Vigil with the Pope to the Meeting with NCW formators). It was a large group and the owners and staff took great care to make sure the kids had food, water, and that the facilities were in working fashion. I really can't complain because there were so many of... More

Stayed three nights in the very quaint Riverside Park Hotel in early August. We were the only guests on one of the nights and there were only a couple of others on the other nights. Be warned though, little /no English is spoken, so take a dictionary with you! The hotel has a certain charm and is nowhere as bad... More

The bus was barely able to get navigate the long drive into the hotel. The bus that picked us up the next morning didn't even try. We were... More

The restaurant is the most critical piece: average breakfast and untasty food for lunch. The place really screams for remodelling. It is certainly fairly priced,... More

I wanted to see Serra da Dos Orgaos park near Petropolis and there didnt seem to be many hotels in the area, so I thought it better to book a hotel in advance before leaving the US. I didnt know what to expect from this hotel, but I was pleasantly surprised. Lots of old artifacts and art work all around... More
