I was nervous about staying here during the World Cup after reading some recent reviews, but we stayed for 4 days (saw the US-Portugal match), and our room was perfectly adequate. Cold A/C, clean bathroom/bed/sheets, and plenty of room/storage. Did not hear a peep through the walls or above us while we were there. There is a fair amount of road/street noise that comes through the A/C vent (we were on 9th floor) but it doesn't usually start until 7am or so. And, they were filling the roof top pool when we left (which would have been a good bonus while we were there). Views from roof top restaurant are great. Breakfast buffet (free) was adequate. Fantastic coffee. Location was excellent for walks to the Theatre, fish market, etc. The street that the entrance is on is quiet and it's on a busy-enough street that safety was not a concern for us. Compared to the other options out there and cost, I'd stay here again if I'm ever back in Manaus. Is the hotel dated and a bit worn out? yes. But I will take cool, clean and quiet any day in a city like this. We heard some horror stories while we were there about some other hotels in this same class. Hotel Monaco really did a good job. They may lose some ground after the World Cup, but they stepped it up this week, in my opinion.
