Brasilia, DF
Reviewed 4 weeks ago via mobile

I'll be very straight: this is NOT a four star hotel. It's a three star pretending to be four (or even five?!!). Nothing here (location, facilities) justifies a four star classification, which means that the room rates are not reasonable either. In fact, if you are not enjoying some kind of promotion, it can be very pricey. I was very...

I enjoyed 3 nights stay there on the 17th floor. Clean new facility with separate sit out and state of the art bath room. Microwave oven and induction cooker are added advantage. Utensils are available on request. Staff speak English and very helpful. I would go back there again. Krish Pillai USA

Check in was quick and efficient and the staff spoke good English. The room was spacious and clean. No utensils provided with the kitchenette but the mini-fridge was handy. Breakfast was good, but evening dinner was extremely poor. No vegetarian options at all (don't eat fish.....). We had a particularly bad storm and heavy rain one evening and the receptionist...

A very quiet and peacefull place, have a great service and attendance, the rooms are very comfortable and clean, the breakfast is good but the meals are somewhat expensive, not worth the money but, despite of this, you have many great restaurants nearby.

The units have a kitchenette (no dishes), living area and bedroom. Nice and quiet area close to Paulista Ave. Good free wifi. Friendly reception staff. Good breakfast, mediocre dinner. 5 minutes walk from metro.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel and they were amazing. We knew very little Portuguese, but they made our stay very pleasant. We picked this area because it was close to Paulista Avenue and we were more than happy with their accommodations. We really enjoyed the beautiful, quiet, and comfortable rooms. The free breakfast in the mornings was...

My girlfriend and I recently completed a stay at this hotel for four nights. Sleep quality was good and the room was very quiet. But, the only reason to stay at this hotel is if you want to be in a residential area within walking distance of Paulista Avenue. Although this a relatively new building, it is not being well...

We stayed here for 3 nights and I have to say that I was incredibly impressed. It's not a luxury hotel, but it's definitely great. The rooms are large and extremely clean, the staff are very helpful and speak excellent English (a bonus as we don't speak Portuguese and it's not a given in Brazil), and the bed and shower...

Staying in Bela Vista

Neighborhood Profile
Bela Vista
Known for its Italian cantinas, Bela Vista is the place to go for great pasta. Also called “Bixiga”, the area is an important cultural part of the city, with the bohemian and the religious costumes of its inhabitants on full display. In August, the large Nossa Senhora Achiropita party fills the streets with a variety of Italian food and music. You can experience the liveliness of the neighborhood walking through the antiquities fair at Dom Orione Square or visiting the “Brazilian Caminito”, a version of the Argentinian street complete with colorful buildings. Bela Vista is also home to the traditional samba school “Vai-Vai”. Buy a ticket to a rehearsal and get a taste of what Carnival is like.
