“Beautiful - Would stay again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2011

This hotel was chosen for guest of the bride and groom- wedding I attended, and by far this was the best hotel that I experience during my trip to Brazil.

The first 3 hotels I stayed in was recommended by the travel company SouthAmerica.travel and was part of a tour. This hotel was not part of that arrangement, and was an upscale from the ones I stayed in during my visit to Rio, Iguacu and Salvador.

First the decor and size is beautiful, and aesthetically pleasing to the eyes. Standard room with 2 twin beds. Note breakfast was not included and was a cost of 20 reals per person. The staff were well versed in english, had no problem communicating with any of them, even the man that carried our luggage to our room spoke some english, which I was not expecting him to do so.

The area where the hotel is located is close to restaurants, and a nice size supermarket is in walking distance. The supermarket had a lot of gourmet food, a nice variety of fruits, and hot prepared food too - great to get breakfast or lunch and stay on a budget.

The hotel is approximately 1 1/2 hour or so from the airport, and shopping mall is approximately 15 mins via taxi. There are no activity for teens or younger children except for the mall. Transport to and from the airport was arranged by the family of the bride.

On the CO floor you will find an indoor pool - which is small, a gym and sauna. This area that is not spread out, therefore it appears compact.

Regarding the internet. There is an option of 512mbps, 1 mbps or 2 mbps for a cost of 10 reals, 12 reals or 15 reals per 24 hour, and the beauty of this is that you can attach multiple devices unlike any other hotel I stayed during my stay. So thank goodness, my son was able to log on to the wifi with his iphone and converse very skype and text to his friend. I purchased the 1 mbps which when watching videos had some lag time. Internet speed in Brazil is not that great, in comparison, my internet speed at home ranges from 10 - 30 depending how far I am away from the moden, You can check you speed at www.Speedtest.net

Overall, pleasant stay. Only down side is that you have to pay for internet service and breakfast was not included.

There are many hotels in Brazil, but few are really over a 3 star when compared to USA/Canada standards. The Palm Towers is actually very nice. The rooms are reasonable and clean. The breakfast is quick and adequate for business needs. I always stay at this hotel when I stay in Campinas. Suggest it over the others in town.

Room Tip: If you can get someone local to book the room you will get better rates and rooms when they appear f...

My stay at this place for 2 weeks just flew by. The hotel is centrally clocated, very close to down town and the central square. The hotel has got a good view of the park located next door.

The hotel staff were very friendly and the breakfast was excellent.

Park de portugal, one of the main attraction in Campinas is located closeby,in taxi it would cost you 18 reas.

Room Tip: Take a room on the western part of the hotel
