First, let me say I am very surprised that none of the World Cup visitors has left any comments about this hotel. I was there during the World Cup for three nights. I arrived at this hotel at 1:30 a.m. after a tiring and delayed flight from San Francisco via Miami. I was so exhausted that I just wanted a bed - any bed! When I opened the door to my room I was hit by a wall of steamy, tropical air that must have gotten trapped inside the room during the hot day. It did not take me too long to realize that the air conditioning had been turned down or simply wasn't working. I tried to kick start it with the remote control I found on the nightstand in this very spartan room.
Unfortunately I could not make it work and it seemed like the culprit was a dead battery inside the remote. I gave up since I just wanted to lie down and go to sleep. Unfortunately some soccer fans had an argument in the hallway just outside my "paper-thin" door and if I had listened more attentively I could have overheard the entire conversation.
The next morning I got the AC to work. So, clearly it was not the hotel's fault other than the allowed the room to heat up to an unbearable temperature prior to my arrival.
The soccer fan crowd was simply overwhelming for the staff, particularly in the breakfast room in the basement where there was only one person on duty. The day-shift receptionists, though, were very friendly and kept their calm.
All in all I was perplexed that this hotel did get a much needed upgrade for the many tourists that were congregating there for the World Cup. I guess after the games they will cater again to traveling salesmen for sewing machines and the likes from other parts of Amazonia.
Nevertheless, it is fair to say that this place was clean - despite not being well kept.
