A group of friends and I stayed here during the World Cup. The location on Boa Viagem is decent, although it isn't super close to a lot of restaurants. The room's weren't too exciting, but weren't unbearable either. The air conditioner didn't work super well and the Wifi was the slowest I have experienced in years. The redeeming quality of... More

My expectations were not high as hotel options were very limited during the World Cup. Even a hotel like this was able to charge $400US a night. There was much positive about this hotel except for the breakfast and one of the front desk staff that spoke English. Wi-fi was non-existent. Our sliding glass door in the room did not... More

I stayed in Fator Palace Hotel for the World Cup. Stay somewhere else. The Wifi didn't work in the rooms, only at the lobby at times. They kept telling us that they were working on the issue but the Wifi didn't work in our rooms during our 5 day stay. The elevators were really slow and weren't synced which made... More

When checking in we had 2 rooms and asked if the rooms were next to each other and the guy said no, so I asked if they are on the same floor and he looked at me like I was weird, nope not on the same floor. We saw they had wifi in the lobby, that was if you are... More

Highly recommend that you look elsewhere. Good location, friendly staff, good breakfast, but terrible value. Wifi only available in lobby; rarely worked. Elevators not synced (slow). Ants in room. Hot water sparse.

I picked this hotel as it was not too far from the airport and close to the promenade by the sea. I needed just the overnight stay as my flight into Recife arrived at 21:20 and my onward journey to the coast south of Recife necessitated a short car ferry crossing and that did not operate after 22:00. On checking... More

Arrived at this hotel with a booking for 7 days and paid upfront. First night was ok. Enormous sea view room but in very old conditions. Clean though. Second day found out that the toilet was blocked. After complaining they sent a staff to "fix it". Since it didn't work we changed room to a level below. Tested toilet straightway... More

Fator needs a facelift. This hotel is in a great location one block in from the beach. We found the hotel very average however and in need of renovation. Decor is outdated and tired and the rooms are not that nice. We did have a nice balcony though which was good. The room was clean but old.

Fator palace was a great place to stay. Obviously, you won't be getting the kind of confort that a 3 stars or better hotel will provide. I would give this hotel a great 2 stars almost 3 stars. The rooms are clean but the floor is kind of greasy. There is a lot of wind noise especially coming from the... More
