This place was amazing. Thank you TripAdvisor for allowing me to read all the original reviews and be able to get a real feel for this hotel before getting there. I simply loved it! Perfect location - 10 minutes from all the major sites in Brasila - and close to the Brazilian President's residence. Friendly staff (they could be a little friendlier), and excellent in-house restaurant (Oscar)... a MASTERPIECE in modern architecture. I couldn't get over the architectural lines, glass, concrete, tiles, mid-century furniture and expansive views. The grounds are peaceful and very zen. The rooms are simple but comfortable and an extension of the whole architectural experience. The gym was tiny but worked for me. I really enjoyed the gym’s location in relation to the other common areas of the hotel and, most importantly, its views. A little history I learned... this was one of the 1st buildings to be built in Brasilia in 1958. It caught on fire in the 70s and supposedly it took a few decades to be remodeled. Great job remodeling it, great place, amazing experience... a Masterpiece if you are into it. Otherwise, I am sure there is always a Marriot or Sheraton around for an "Americana" experience. Boooo!
