I really value hotels which are trying to do their bit to save the planet and the Eko Residence is. They are details but make a difference. The staff were also very welcoming and pleasant. My room was perfectly adequate although the lighting over the working area could be better and the handle and lock on the door were rather hit and miss. The bathroom was fine and the wifi worked well. Breakfast was good with plenty of fruit, bread and cakes. I had a meeting at the University so it was very convenient. I would return there.

Hotel room was comfortable but the low power lights and poor internet throughout the hotel was poor. Situated in a rough part of town I would generally avoid the area. The hotel staff were helpful and breakfast was ok

We hope that you can stay with us again. Kind regards, Diogo A Customer relationship manager.

A lot of details make the experience just average. The staff is polite but there are things that are just not right. For instance, I wanted to take notes in my room and asked for a piece of paper. After the hotel staff asked me how may papers I want, they said they would charge me R$0,50 per sheet. It's not about the money, but about a service... besides that, Internet was not working properly in the room, shower needed maintenance...
