Hotel Des Arts Economico Truly is a 1 star hotel. I think I have stayed in nicer hostels then this. The lobby/main floor of the hotel is warm and nicely decorated. I hope with all the money they got from the WC tourists that they renovate their rooms. This hotel kind of looked like a frat house on each floor.... More

Probably the hotel used to be a really good one 10 years ago! It has changed and you can see the ravages of time everywhere. The pillows and blankets are just graunchy and disgusting. For world cup guests.... it´s located close to the wonderful beach but far to the soccer stadium(approx. 1 hour by taxi = 60 to 70 Reais).

This hotel is very good located close to the beach of Boa Viagem, just about 5 minutes walk. The 3 bed room was clean and comfortable, equipped with air condition and fridge. Bathroom was clean, towels were changed daily. The breakfast was good too. They offered tea, coffee, milk and different variations of fresh food and fruits. The receptionists were... More
