The good: the hotel is new. Suites are nice new one-bedroom apts, with a strict minimum of utensils (it would be hard to do much cooking), and with a comfortable bed. The staff I saw were pleasant and efficient, and maybe half the front desk staff spoke English. The breakfast on the top floor was fine but the usual buffet. Wifi functions but is sometimes slow (but it is free). And there is an easy to program safe in the room and a good deal of closet space.
The bad. Single pane windows and being near a major road means alot of noise - I woke up early every day because of that. The neighborhood seems uninteresting but ok during the day; others (below) say it is somewhat dangerous at night. The Minas Shopping center (large, middle class - not the best stores) is a 10 minute walk away (with a cinema for those interested). The ATM machines mostly refused my US card - only the Banco do Brasil ATM one worked. It is a 32 Real taxi ride to the start of Savassi (the interesting part of town) - the hotel seems far from everything you might want to see. The university was about the same distance and cost, in another direction (more northern).
For about the same price, next time I really hope they put me up in an IBIS in Savassi - also real clean and modern, just a small functional room, but in a part of town fun to walk around, not isolated. But for families who want an apartment that is not too expensive, Impar Suites is probably a good option.
