“World Cup Stay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2014

We stayed here on 2 occasions each for 5 nights as part of a holiday booked by Imagine Latin America. The hotel is located in downtown and is a short walk from the Opera house, market and floating dock. The area is a hive of activity during the day with lots of shops and market stalls nearby. We stayed during the world cup and every stall and shop was selling Brazil shirts and Merchandise and added to the amazing world cup atmosphere in the city. I am not sure what they will sell at other times. On Sundays and in the evening the streets are completely empty and nothing is open. We saw homeless people sleeping on the street next to the hotel and a man with a t-shirt labelled vigil anti sat on the next block down during the evenings but we did not see any trouble at all. There is an Italian and a fast food restaurant at the end of the street but no other restaurants in the near vicinity. There are some maybe 5 10 mins walk away but as we were there for the world cup we just ate around football games and did not really have an evening meal as such. It maybe a good idea to take a taxi (they are really cheap) to go to anywhere more than a few minutes away after dark. Manaus however does not appear to have a centre with lots of bars and restaurants as in other cities.

Our first room in the hotel was quite big with an eating area up some steps. The bathroom had a huge shower however as mentioned in other posts it was not very powerful. The room was clean but as with most hotels in Brazil it was a little dated. Our second room was a little smaller without the eating area. The shower was powerful and the water hot. This room did not have a safe and air conditioning unit was located at the side of the bed so blew a draft onto you while you were sleeping. There was no remote control to turn it down so we had to keep turning it off and on. Wifi was good in both rooms.

Breakfast was good there was a selection of freshly squeezed juice, eggs, bacon, pastries, cereals, ham and cheese. There was one day when the hotel was really busy that the food ran out but it was quickly replenished. We did have room service a couple of times, it was reasonable priced and tasty but nothing spectacular.

The staff are friendly however only a couple of the receptionists speak English. The ones that don't try their best to communicate by Google Translate. The batteries ran out in the safe in our first room and the porter resolved it straight away. We left some of our luggage when we went on a 3 night stay in the Amazon and it was kept in a secure location. When we arrived back the porter saw us arrive and went and retrieved it for us straight away. The hotel handled being fully occupied well. As we were there so long we saw different football supporters come and go. They had a days before games where lots of people checked in and days where lots checked out and although reception was busy there were no real queues and staff remained friendly and cleanliness didn't suffer.

We understand that during the world cup we were not going to get an amazing hotel without spending a lot money and this one did the job of providing us with a clean place to stay where we could walk to thing to see. I would not say that this hotel carried the 4 star rating shown in reception but as far as Brazil hotels go it is fine and if you are just looking for a stop over on the way to or from the Amazon it is ok. I would however probably stay in one nearer the opera house where there are some restaurants nearby.

The hotel is located in the middle of a busy market selling illegal, counterfeit goods. At night when the market closes people sleep in the streets. Not safe at all. Inside the place seems to have been decorated decades ago. The aircon is terrible and very noisy. The staff are rude and unhelpful. Do not stay here.

This hotel was grossly overpriced.Its basic , claustrophobic and the best thing about it is When you leave.The aircon hardly worked and the room was always hot and stuffy.The room was not overly clean , the sheets had holes .I wouldnt recommend this hotel even to an enemy. The hotel is more alike a Bangkok hotel which caters for one hour visits. Avoid it !

Good:
Location - walking distance to the Teatro Amazonia and a bustling market
Staff - though extremely busy, made time to answer our questions and resolve an issue we had with booking

Average/Bad:
Surroundings - this May be a comment on the level of poverty that exists, but the hotel is situated in a "back alley". We flew in late in the evening, and as we pulled up around 12am, there were lines of homeless people sleeping in the hotels alley. Though we experienced zero issues, it was shock.

Overall:
On our next stay in Manaus, I'll pay for a nicer hotel.

Good location in Centro district.
Pros - very friendly and pleasant service, breakfast included, good air conditioning in our room.
Cons - lighting in our room could have been a bit more relaxed... no lamp shades!
Other - good value for money, could be considered a bit noisy at times, but overall a very good stay.

Everything was great. Room was nice looking, clean and cool. Shower was perfect. Television great. Lobby was beautiful, front desk very helpful, owner gave me a great rate. Was able to use the lobby computer whenever I needed it. It is right in the middle of a busy area, but the sound did not go into the building since it was so well built. Great place and breakfast was very good. pt

Lord Manaus Hotel Review
I checked in on 8/2/2013 and left on 8/5/2013. My stay in the hotel was very pleasant and I would return under similar circumstances. The room was clean and of course had air conditioning. The bathroom and shower were perfect. Located in the center of town on Rua Marcilio Dias 217, the hotel was within walking distance to some major attractions, (Port of Manaus, Municipal Market, Amazon Theater, etc.).
Hotel personnel were very good with service and helpful with questions regarding the city of Manaus. The hotel is just two blocks from Restorante Fiorentina where you can get a good meal at a reasonable price. It’s located on Rua José Paranaguá 44, in the center district of Manaus.
