After a grueling travel day, the Cult Hotel was a sight for sore eyes. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful with getting us checked in and suggestions for dining and getting around during the World Cup. The rooms are small and the interior decorating could be improved to utilize the space better, but it was clean, everything worked just... More

HOTEL FACILITIES the hotel main entrance makes you think the hotel is nicer than it really is. The lobby is well decorated and it looks like its been done recently. The breakfast room has a good size, the options available for breakfast are ok. You can order fried eggs, tapioca or fresh orange juice which makes a difference. The swimming... More

This is a nice place for a short stay in Recife if you are traveling on a budget. Strong points are the in and out transfer to the airport, breakfast, pieces of art displayed all the way around and the staff. Weak points are the small size of the rooms, the old building, and the irregular quality of room equipments.... More

This is a fine hotel, located in Boa Viagem district, some 100m from the beach. Lobby is very nice and clean. Rooms are average, rather small. Staff is friendly. I would recommend this hotel if you are on a budget.

The photos of this hotel on line do not do this hotel justice. First of all, flat screen TV's have been put in each room. The single room is small but confortable. This hotel has beautiful art work on the walls. The swimming pool is really too small to swim in; but Boa Viagem beach is only one block away... More

Location: Situated in the quarter Boa Viagem, about 5 km south of downtown. From some rooms you can get a glance of the sea, the beach is only 100m away, but you should not swim due to the risk of shark attacks. Some hundred meters to the north you will find typical Brazilian beach life with a lot of people,... More

This hotel felt a little dated and the rooms are quite small, but the staff were fantastic and the place is really clean. Not many spoke English, but we generally got around it as they were so helpful (we had one conversation over the hotel computer using Google translator!). Breakfast was pretty good and the receptionist pointed us to a... More

The first person we met at the front desk spoke English and was so pleased to meet us. He immediately began to help us think about our time in Recife and the best way to enjoy carnival. At first we were a little concerned about booking the hotel because of its name. But it was carnival time and there weren't... More
