Chose to stay here for 3 nights during the world cup and arrived with a certain amount of trepidation after reading mostly poor comments on here and several other sites.
Yes the hotel is worn, dated and rough and around the edges but our 12th floor room was clean, safe, had working air-con and was cleaned everyday (which was more than other hotels in the city according to other travellers whom we met.) The view of the Rio Negro was also unforgettable.
On the downside, it was a shame that the rooftop pool was empty in a city so hot and humid.
Some traffic noise from the busy streets below. Would I start here if returning to Manaus? Not for a romantic weekend away no, but for a clean, safe, adequate roof over my head for a reasonable price? Yes.
