“Comfortable, efficient”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

I stayed here 3 nights. Everything was fine and efficient. Breakfast was adequate; coffee was very good. The location is excellent, though on a busy street, and the service was quite good. I did not use the rooftop pool or bar or gym.

Stayed here for 2 nights. Very comfortable and centrally located. Everything you expect from an upscale hotel, the price, fast internet. The pool on the roof is awesome! I skipped breakfast so can't say anything about that, but the the bar food at night is good.

The open lobby and the decor is great. Lots of good equipment in the gym. The service is good. You can get a very nice coffee, if you ask for it at breakfast. Bedrooms are large and pretty much OK. Internet was fine. I was very satisfied with my one week stay there.

Definitely a business hotel ..no outside spaces except rooftop pool...lobby always full of conference delegates on meeting breaks.
Lobby and restaurant have been upgraded which belies the rather worn out bedrooms. Mine had
Holes in the peeling wallpaper ..tired paintwork and mildew in the bathroom.
The staff spoke little English but seemed pleasant enough when, every day,I had to change my magnetic room key..apparently you can't keep the swipe card anywhere near a mobile phone..tough to do....they were equally as exasperated as myself by this. Lots of people complaining every day.
Worn out A/C unit just about worked when left on all day and night.
Internet keeps s
Going on and off. But at least was fast.

Food just about OK

Would look elsewhere next time

2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012 via mobile

Front desk staff was very slow, and unfriendly, they would help multiple guests even when I was 1st and waiting to check-in and check-out. They don't have adequate and secure facilities to manage AMEX credit cards.

They charged me $410 per night which was $150 more than the more premier hotel Polana, that was unfortunately fully booked.

1.No view, compared to Polana and Southern Sun.
2. Rooms are small
3. Air conditioning very rudimentary.

The Avenida is a well designed hotel in the middle of the city centre, very well positioned on a busy street next to a popular cosmopolitan restaurant joint where the young and jazzy meet. The hotel lobby is modern and well designed with generous uses of marble and carpeting is used towards the bar and lounge area.

The rooms are well appointed but have started to show the tired side of over use. A makeover would return this hotel to an attractive destination.

Room Tip: Find out if the rooms have been updated with a makeover to ensure a better experience.

The location is great. Good hotel for overnight or for business travelers. Very modern feeling. I would not advise for holiday makers. Close to Mundos for entertainment and food.The rooms are clean and neat. Bar and dinning area is very formal and lack atmosphere.
