I stayed at the Brasilia Palace hotel for one night on a Sunday, a few weeks ago,
Having arrived in Brasilia to hunt for a car, I stayed in a souless hotel which i cannot remember the name of and paid RS 136 for the night, it had a tiny window overlooking the air conditioning.
I had been to the Brasilia Palace Hotel back in April, for drinks and to admire the architecture, so decided to call and see if they had a room and the price, Luckily the hotel was well priced at RS176, so I went to stay the night.
When we arrived Sunday the restaurant I checked in and went for lunch before the restaurant closed at 3. lunch was buffet with a choice or 3 set meals, it was a reasonable lunch, with choice of many salads and deserts.
My room on the second floor was comfortable and i was able to keep the balcony door open all night without worry of intruders.
The bed was comfortable.
Internet was a pain as you had to sign in each time and cost RS15 extra per 24 hours. TV was mostly in Brasilian. There was not a turn down service, neither was there a porter to take luggage to my room, although my case was small, nobody took me to my room, so i had to figure out how things like air con worked and oriente my way around the Hotel. there were not many guests staying, I figure that this hotel is used mainly during the week, as therefore quieter and perhaps cheaper at the weekend.
Over all i liked it as it was very peaceful, and away from the bustle of the city. you will need a car or at least arranged transport to and from the hotel to the city.
Breakfast was very nice and included in the price and the restarant was stunning. with a black grand piano, and a huge variety.
