“Next door to a good, authentic grill restaurant”
Reviewed May 2, 2014

A good location close to the smarter, beach area of Fortaleza and not too far of a walk from the rather tatty downtown along Avenida Monsenhor Tabosa. There is a particularly good grill restaurant next door and the beach is a few blocks away. It does suffer, however, from that dilemma of all hoteliers in the tropics - air con is essential but is often cheaply installed and way too loud to allow one to sleep properly. Service is slick but perhaps lacking real personality but the room was generally good and the conference facilities are also prim.

I am in Brazil for the Confederations Cup and I hope to return next year for the World Cup in 2014. I found this hotel and I stayed here 3 days it is a very good hotel it is ranked as 3 stars but it has all the needs and the price was in our budget. It has a very good free breakfast of Tropical Fruits,eggs, yogurt, fruit juices and good strong Brazilian coffee. I rate their breakfast 5 stars. The restaurant, bar and pool are on the roof of hotel and although the pool is small it was never crowded. The view from the roof is really nice. There is wifi in the entire hotel including the lounge areas. The hotel is 5 minute walk or 3 blocks to the beach. There are some very nice medium priced restaurants near the hotel but you have to look for them because they are a bit hard to find. I really liked this hotel and I will stay in it again next year for the world cup.

This hotel has a very central location, close to shops, the beach etc.
We stayed in Fortaleza for 2 nights and the room was perfect for what we needed, very clean with comfy bed, we also requested a room on one of the higher levels and we ended up being able to see the ocean from our window which was great!
The reception staff were friendly and helpful, good breakfast with lots of options.
Rooftop pool has a good view and the bar staff are also very friendly.
Only downfall was our air con was freezing!! It didn't matter what setting or temperature we had it on, the air was still extremely cold!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on one of the higher levels for a good view!

I stayed 12 days at the Hotel Praia Centro in Fortaleza. The room I stayed at was comfortable enough and of good size. The wifi signal worked well. The cleanliness of the room was fine, although the bathroom showed some signs of mold in the ceiling. The best feature of Hotel Praia Centro is its location (easy access to public transport, taxis, beach, etc) and the breakfast. The variety of fruits, breads, cakes, cereals and hot foods was really great and it made the start of the day a joy. I would stay there again.

The hotel is placed in a very central area. Right on Monsenhor Tabosa Avenue and 10 minutes away from Mercado Central, so if you´re visiting Fortaleza for shopping reasons, it´s a good place to stay.
The room is large. Breakfast is great. The pool area isn´t so large but it works.
