I chose “Barreto Apart Hotel” through a booking site. Well, I lived in Brasilia for 11 years and had never heard of it. Not even the taxi driver at the airport knew it. As we called, we were told it is the same Hotel Saint Paul. It sounded confusing and a not so regular practice.
It seems that the building has different hotels in it. Depending on the room you are, you are in a different hotel, though in the same building. Add to that the fact that, although you are using the St Paul’s facility, you have to pay for breakfast and internet access, which was supposed to be free. And this is not what the ad sells. If asked, the front desk will say it is a different hotel... confusing, deceiving, unreal.
The room is large and aired, with a nice view (Brasilia is pretty flat and the building is tall). There is a mini fridge (more of a mini freezer) and cable with multiple language channels. The AC works fine and housekeeping came on a daily basis. The staff was nice too. No complaints on that matter. There is a small cafeteria next to the front desk that works 24/7. For late snacks I’d suggest. No microwave, hair dryer or shampoo/ conditioner in the room.
I kept all my luggage locked for security reasons out of a review I had read. Nothing went missing though.More
