“Amazing”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2014

I was surprised by how blinded I was by the low rate. No A/C in Manaus, AMAZONAS. There's a HUGE fan where you can only turn on to max speed. The only window opens to the halllway with no mosquito screen.

Didn't get any sleep at all. Thankfully my flight was early in the morning so I would have had to wake up at 2am anyway. And at least I got a good shower.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

Hotel Ideal is a perfect choice for those on a budget or, like me, just on an overnight. The rooms are very simple, the staff is very helpful and the breakfast is fresh. The hotel has both wifi and some wired computers for guests to use. They also have lockers to store luggage and very reliable transfers in and out of the airport.

I booked the cheapest one (room 102) for my first night in and then decided to splurge (room 101) for my last night out. The difference in price was about 5 dollars and the better room had air conditioning and a balcony.

Room Tip: Look for local tour guide James O'Reilly, known to the locals as "Aurelio". He's s...

The hotel is cheap and clean enough, but the rooms are basic. The hotel is not in the best area, but it is a budget option. All that said, I would stay closer to the Amazonas Theater (The opera house) if I was you.

Just a cheap room for a nights sleep. Not in a great location unless you are getting dropped off and picked up before an amazon tour.

Breakfast was ok, bed was ok, hotel was safe and clean.

Remember to ask for a discount if you stay multiple days! You can save at least a few bucks a night!
There's not much around here to do, though the per kilo restaurants around here are decent and the street food is nice.
The rooms are very basic, but the street side ones have a window.

Room Tip: The street side rooms have a window and small balcony!

This hotel, though cheap, is not worth the stay. It is in a shabby part of the city, and not recommended for after evening walking. Even the hotel manager said it was too dangerous to walk out late at night - which is fine since there is nothing nearby worth going to anyway. The rooms themselves are small, windowless with very loud A/Cs which don't work well. Add to that mosquitos in the rooms is a place just not worth it. Why it is listed in the Lonely Planet certainly escapes me. On the plus side, it does have in room WiFi. Do yourself a favor and spend a couple more $R and get a better place near the Theater Amazonas. NOT RECOMMENDED.

Room Tip: Hotels near the Theater Amazonas are more social and have more activity at night. A good place is G...

No complains, even if Internet was veeeeery slowly, even if the space is like the back of a great familiar house, the room was clean, the bathroom working and (important!) the air conditioning working! It´s a trevaller little hotel for local people working or young "mochileros".
