We did not like this stay. The worst item for sure was the air-conditioner, you have a silent air-conditioner, but you don't have control of it. The only control you have is to turn it on or off, but you cannot control the temperature, it is controlled by the hotel. The receptionist told us, if it was cold outside, the air-conditioner would warm up, and if it was hot, the air-conditioner would cool off. But it wasn't working like this, because it was very cold outside, and the air-conditioner was cooling off anyway. The receptionist told us he could give us a blanket, but he could not do anything else. In my opinion, the hotel wants to save money with this kind of "system". This is miserable.
Another point is the TV: the TV DOES have HDMI, but the Hotel blocks this function in the TV system, to do not be used by the guests. You can plug in your HDMI cable, but when you go to activate it, the option is grayed out. The receptionist told us, it was blocked by the hotel. Another thing, they don't have Nat Geo.
The window of our room, had a sort of a mass, probably to fix some damage, but the thing is, we was not able to close the window completely because of this mass. It was preventing the lock from closing. We saw a piece of string holding the lamp in the bathroom to prevent it to fall down and also an insulating tape holding the air conditioner, so that, the lid would not open.
With all these things, it feels like the hotel needs some help regarding money, this is the image was passed to me. If I'm not wrong, this is the most expensive ibis in Curitiba.
Good things regarding this hotel? The location, it is right in front Shopping Crystal. The security: to use the elevator, you must have the key to open your room, otherwise, the elevator will not go up. They have breakfast out of hours. The restaurant is good.
My advice: The good things does not outweigh the bad things, go to the Ibis Curitiba Shopping, four blocks away, and far more better. Better, newer and cheaper.
