We recently spent three days in Brasilia to get to know the city and its architecture. We decided to stay at the Royal Palace in order to have real experience of a Niemeyer building. There is something extremely special about staying here - it is an absolutely stunning modernist building and its location and the grounds are also beautiful. The pool looks out onto the lake and the restaurant, Oscar's, too provides views of a wonderful outdoor space. It really is very special. The rooms however are small and quite non descript, especially when compared to the actual building itself. The furniture is quite cheap and our room was also a bit jaded with peeling paint and the taps in the shower were broken, which made regulating the hot and cold water difficult. We notified reception three times but they never came to fix it at all and didn;t really seem to care that we were having difficulties showering. All of this is in keeping with the service which overall was not great. On our first day there was a wedding. we were not notified and the music went on until 3am. Waiters in the restaurant were slow and at times not present and room service too was slow and there was also very little on offer. That said, I am glad we stayed here for the experience of living in an Oscar Niemeyer building. I would recommend it for this.

I absolutely wanted to experience this Niemeyer hotel and I was not disappointed by the hotel itself, the very intestering building, the beautiful and peaceful location on the lake.
Now, yes it is a bit far from the city but if you want a quiet and nice location, you should chose this hotel.
The main critics I would have would be on one side the service which is friendly but not numerous enough (had to wait by check-in and check-out 20 mn as only one person was at the front desk) and on the other side the restaurant Oscar. While the restaurant room is very beautiful, the food is not really great. The menu has high ambition but the quality of the meal is not up to it. My appetizer, some stir-fried octopus were quite bland and my main course was a very strange combition of fish skewer with canded ginger...
Never seen that before and hope to never see it again :)

Room Tip: On the 3rd floor as you have the best view of the lake.

Nice "historic" hotel far outside Brasilia with a lot of charme and well renovated. Buy water and food items before you go there. No supermarket or alike nearby.
Clean and relatively new.
Room service very slow. Staff helpful.

We chose the Brasilia Palace in order to experience living in a Niemeyer building. On that level, it did not disappoint. It's a well-maintained modernist hotel. The rooms are small, clean, and efficient. Each room has a nice balcony. The service is friendly and attentive, though few staff speak English, as was our experience throughout Brasilia. The breakfasts were very good - a wide array of hot and cold items, fresh fruits, juices, and baked goods. There is a nice, large pool area. In all, a really good value. We had a very disappointing experience in the hotel's restaurant, Oscar. They were clearly understaffed and overwhelmed the night we dined there - we only saw four waiters for the entire, completely full restaurant. No busboys, no hostess. Our waiter appeared never to have eaten in a restaurant, let alone work in one - he seemed flummoxed by how to place silverware on the table and went in search of a corkscrew for a screwtop bottle of wine. The food, once it finally came, was fine. Some downsides to know about - the fitness center is small and the universal machine was broken when we were there. The location is isolated and cabs need to be called specially to the hotel, which adds a surcharge to your fare. (It's about R$20 from the hotel to the major landmarks.) Even though the hotel is right on the lake, there are no recreational opportunities right there - not even a path near the water - because you are in a secure zone near the presidential palace (which you can walk to). We were happy we stayed here, but you need to weigh your desire for modernist authenticity with your need for convenience.

Room Tip: All rooms are on the same side of the hotel.

And just wanted to always stay in something designed by a master-it is a little way out of the Centro area but to me it was well worth staying even if slightly isolated. The restaurant located within the grounds is well worth a visit. The design lines are very clean and the long flowing corridors just mirror the outside design lines. All of the fittings are also in keeping with the style
