“Good business hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013 via mobile

This is a nice hotel with good amenities and a very reasonable price over carnival, which is when we stayed. It's really a business hotel though. Large rooms, clean, functional. Good free wifi everywhere. Excellent sound insulation and quiet, modern central AC in the room (although the bedroom itself in our room seemed to have low arflow). The gum is tiny. The main reason it's not good for tourists is the location - far from the sights and not walking distance to anything. At least a R$ 10 taxi ride to the closest beach or shopping centre. Being a new hotel, most taxi drivers also don't know where it is, so have a smartphone to hand or learn how to tell them

The staff are very friendly although could do with more training - e.g. we asked whether they could check if a local restaurant was open and the guy said he couldn't make any calls for guests. We then started looking at our guide book to figure out plan B, C and D, as on the previous night the place we had tried to go to without checking had indeed been closed, and the same guy came over and said, sorry, he was new and didn't know he actually could make local calls of this nature. He had tried and the place we wanted to go to was closed, but they would suggest another (which turned out to be nice).

The beds are huge and mattresses are new, but standard spring coils, so quite bouncy. I loved that there were 3 different types of pillows to choose from :-)

Breakfast was ok. The fruit was good, which is the most important thing to me. The granola was also quite nice. As it was carnival, it was very busy and the small pool area was very full (I.e. no seats available after 10am), in addition to the pool itself being a bit yuck from the 2nd day we were there (Carnival Monday).

Re. Carnival itself: come but try your first night on the streets, without a bloco or camarote. We found it wasn't anywhere near as dangerous as people make it out to be and the blocos and camarotes are so expensive it's really not worth the money to do on all nights... But do only take the very least you need, and remember to pack a money belt for your documents and back up cash!!

Very nice hotel.
New in town, got a refresh on the lobby area and restaurant.
Front desk staff awesome, warm and friendly. In the room, air conditioning not working properly. Housekeeping not very good, found hair on my sink, that was not mine. Restaurant has good options. Room service takes forever to delivery, better if you go on your own to the restaurant.

Room Tip: Try the corners, away from elevators

I stayed here for 2 months!
The staff was super friendly, helpful and caring.
We were sad to leave!
The hotel facilities and food is great!

Amazing place to stay!
Unfortunately the location is not the best. As the beach is a bit further away, as well as the shopping center.
