My husband and I recently stayed at this hotel during the World Cup. It was not booked by us nor was it our first choice. We were there with a group for the USA game. It was obvious that the hotel went through some renovations prior to the start of the World Cup. Upon arrival, the staff at the front... More

I was there for 17 nights, in a business travel, of course with week-end as day off. Very good: Location and the service (front desk and the messenger/valet). Parking free. Good: size of the room, if you are alone or just a couple. For two guys...not good. With children, only if he(she) is a baby. Average: The beds and the... More

Fron desk is avsolutely unpolite, the hotel is very old, without maintenance. Mold and dust everywere. The awkward tv position gave me stiff neck. Bathroom is a nightmare. You pay too much for a less then one star hotel. Stay way, specially if you suffer from asthma or any mold allergy.

The hotel needs improvement. Rooms are old and smell not so good. Bathroom is bad, althought the good shower. Bed it´s okay. There is internet in the room, for free, and with good quality. That´s the best thing in the hotel. I've stayed for work, so it´s okay. For tourism seems terrible. Elevator is slow. The staff is okay, but... More

Good hotel, in an excellent place near the most famous beach of Recife. The rooms need to be refurbished, but they are big and with a nice view. A very good restaurant. I did not use the internet but there is available. The concierge are friendly. I recommend!

The Internacional Palace (also named sometimes Lucsim Palace) is perfectly located close to the beach front of Boa Viagem but this is it. The hotel was definitively a "top hotel" in the 90th but to be frank - lost completely its charme. The bath in my room was just in the category - no words. The room service was OK... More

We went to Recife and stayed in this hotel during the Carnival. This is an old and expensive hotel. You have to negotiate when making a reservation and you will probably get a discount. They used very small sheets to made up the bed but the bed itself is quite comfortable. The safe of our room was broken and they... More

Okay, Recife is not a glamorous city, but this hotel is way past his prime. And expensive. But as the management apparently is aware of the run down state of the place, you will probably get a discount. The bathroom is unbelievable, we couldn't take a shower without flooding the bathroom and it's nearly impossible to close the faucets while... More

This hotel is in front of the Boa Viagem Beach and have a beautiful view of beach. The breakfast is delicious. The hotel is old, but they were renovating the building.

The rooms are small, sparce, and lacking in personality. The is no hot water nor any tempature control in the room. I did not even have an emergency evacuation plan on the door. They claim to have a pool which is really a small pond and a business center which is really an oversized bathroom with a slow internet connection... More
