“Excellent hotel in a good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

We have been here just over a week and it is a lovely clean modern hotel with a few English speaking staff on the front desk and in the restaurant. There is plenty of food for breakfast (open until 10am) and only the hot food varies slightly from day to day. There is a fridge in the room (12th floor king size) bed which is very comfortable and there is also a safe. There are no drawers to put clothes away in and only 8 hangers in the wardrobe so you will be living out of your suitcase or displaying your clothes for all to see in the open bedside shelves. The air con is quiet and works well and has lot's of options. There is free wifi but it keeps connecting and disconnecting from my phone. You can hard wire your computer if you have a lead, it is not supplied. Usually one computer is fine on the wifi until it gets busy.....
There is a hairdryer and a 220v socket in the bathroom but no 110v socket and no coffee maker in the room. There is a walk in shower which we prefer to a shower over a bath and a curtain.
TV is satellite with lots of channels but there is only one English channel which is CNN. There is crisps, biscuits, chocolate in a basket and drinks in the fridge and prices in the booklet.
There is an excellent big shopping centre accessible from the hotel with a food hall in the middle and plenty of choice which is open until 10pm except Sun to 8pm.
On the upper floor there is a room full of atm's opposite the Burger restaurant.
The 'Local' supermarket is left out of the hotel front entrance and about a 20 min walk straight down the road or a 5 min car ride. It is a $10R taxi ride back and usually there is a taxi waiting.
There are lots of good restaurants all with big bars within walking distance. You maybe woken up at 4am with everyone leaving the bars on a Friday or Saturday night as the locals seem to carry on partying until dawn. All in I would recommend staying here and you won't need a car.

Room Tip: Make sure all electrical items can handle 220v and if you want tea or coffee in your room bring a 22...

I should preface this review with a disclaimer: I am told by locals it is the best place in Joinville. If that is true, someone should open a decent hotel in this city.
- the knucklehead at the reception desk, when I checked in spoke, no English, no French, no German - only Portuguese.
- the sheets were filthy, and I had to collect new one from the reception myself as no room attendants were on duty
- the hallway on the fifth floor stank of mildew

Next time I'll try the Mercure... Or sleep in my car.

I stayed at the Bourbon in September 2012 on business. It is in a nice safe location near a shopping center. The rooms are small but quite clean and good for my needs. WiFi was so/so. The restaurant was good for breakfast with a huge buffet. There are many places to eat in the neighborhood. The staff was very good natured about my poor attempts at speaking Portuguese.

Located in the city's heart, the hotel is a nice option either for leisure or business. No more than two blocks away from bars and restaurants and a shopping mall. Courteous, prompt service. Rooms are comfortable - air conditioner, free wi-fi, hair dryer, and mini bar - yet not veeeery spacious. Bathroom is impeccably clean and the shower is divine - will put you up and running in seconds, in the morning, or will reboot you after a hard day. Clean, soft towels and passion-fruit scented toiletry items and a very creamy soap bar complement the comfort. Breakfast is a show apart. Three large buffets offer a wide selection of fresh fruits, cold cuts, bakery items, jellies, butter, yogurt and more, much more. A fourth smaller buffet offer a nice selection of light items and gluten-free products.

I really liked this hotel and I wonder why it doesn't have more good reviews.
Breakfast is huge, with lots of muffins, palstry, loafs, pies, eggs, juices, fruits, I loved it. Its one of the best breakfasts I had in a hotel.
The rooms are comfortable, with clean beds, clean sheets, they have these bathroom products as well, LCD tv, minibar.
It is right next to this small mall in the city. I totally recommend this hotel if you are in a business trip, or even spending a weekend like I did.
You can leave the hotel and have a nice walk around downtown, which is one of the best parts of the cities.

Joinville is a lovely town and this hotel is in the heart of it. There is an attached mall for some diversion, but if you are there just for business its a great place. Internet access is not free which is poor for a hotel that caters to the business traveler. the room service menu is small and rarely do they have all the items listed in stock and available. The desert menu needs a lot of work. Luckily the hotel is located next to some great restaurants, so you may have to go out for some decent food.

the daily breakfast is very good.

The rooms are large,clean and comfortable.

Room Tip: Rooms on the side of the hotel that overlooks tha mall are subject to noise from a forklift that ope...
