No English is spoken by anyone at this htel, the staff were GRUMPY and unhelpful, and mature gentleman was present most of the time in the reception area and it seems like his only purpose was to glare at everyone and give dirty looks!
Still after making it up THREE flights of steep, narrow staircases with a heavy suitcase ( no offer of help)... I made it to my matchbox sized room which was clean and quiet but no room to lay down my suitcase and only a very narrow bed to sleep on, I was not happy at all. The bathroom was nice but that didn't help because I don't live in a bathroom!
The internet was sometimes OK, sometimes not. The room had a 12 inch TV with cable included, with just one channel in English. The air conditioning was adequate.
Breakfast was included and actually very good....but the server was incredibly hostile, even though I left a tip, the next morning she still scowled as she slammed the tray down on the table (no more tips!)
After the third day, I asked a Portuguese speaking friend to talk to them, they said if I did not like it there, I was happy to find another hotel....so I did!
I moved to another hotel that was only marginally better! I just could not get past the unhelpful staff and the dirty glares from the mature (official grump) that was ever present in the reception!
I don't really recommend unless you can cope with life in a matchbox, speak some Portuguese and can put up with limited internet service! The glares and grumpiness is another story!
