Everything was perfect, the hotel is very quiet, the wiew of Boa Viagem Beach it's amazing. The service was good and the breakfast the best. The check out could be quickly, but person who attended me was very kind and friendly.

Very disappointing stay. Security is awful and bags are stored in a public corridor with guest and the general public allowed full access. Recife is not exactly a safe destination at the best of times nor is the area around the Hotel (away from the beach). Hygiene was also poor. The front desk staff were rude and it is not... More

From my last stay to this one I got a remodeled room that looks nicer then the older design, but still for the price charged they need to improve a lot. Despite the reception main hall that gives you an impression that is an expensive hotel, when you get your room you see that is it more for an average... More

By American standards, some would consider this a budget hotel, but it's one of the nicer ones in the area. The hotel seems oriented toward beach vacationers rather than business travelers. For example the WiFi is very slow and only one person can use the connection at a time. My wife and I both needed to get some work done,... More

It's located in front of the beach but doesn't have much infrastructure and the few that exist are expensive for what is offered. The hotel is old and needs a remodeling for the XXI century, especially they need to upgrade the beds and furniture. The Wifi is worthless it's hard to get a signal and is pretty slow. The breakfast... More

WHAT TO EXPECT This is a nice standard hotel. Don't expect too much and you'll be fine. So it's not fancy. It's old-fashioned, with some decoration details that makes you feel in the 80s. It's going through a total refurbishing. PROs Rooms are big and at least most of them have some sea view. Really comfortable. Nice wood prints in... More

Great hotel with good rooms with a view of the beach. But needs urgent renovation. The bathrooms look dirty and grimy. And the rooms are not soundproof, being quite noisy in the mornings. Not a bad option, I just expected more for it be considered one of the best hotels in Recife.

This place really needs a reality check. This would be a good hotel only in the times of the Soviet Union. I have stayed here a few times and every time I come, I only see it worsening. The rooms were pretty delapidated by 2012, so the have done some remodeling. The room I got this time was recently remodeled,... More

Big hotel, outstanding view of Boa Viagem beach.Very good breakfast. Need to be careful with the neighbourhood. Staff very friendly. Close to shopping centers and AirPort. Ask for rooms with front view of the beach.

The room was good, large, comfortable bed, a view of the beach. The staff and breakfast was not so good. They were not nice at all (contrasting to everyone else we've dealt with in Brazil), also not helpful. One of the elevators was always stuck, but even though they know this, they let you go in, try your card several... More
