My wife and I stayed here for 5 days in early March and we enjoyed our time there. This is a small "boutique" hotel, with additional rooms in an adjacent hotel (Hotel Village Icarai). The rooms are small but totally adequate for folks planning to spend their days out of the room site seeing.
The room was very clean, with a TV, DVD player, air conditioner, and refrigerator. The furnishings are basic, but they met our needs. The bathroom was modern, with a roomy shower (no tub). Hand and body soap are the only supplies provided by the hotel. A hair dryer is in the bathroom.
The staff at the front desk was very nice and accommodating to tourists with no Portuguese language skills. They made us feel welcome and comfortable. WiFi is provided at no cost.
Breakfast was modest but good. It generally included meat and cheese trays, breads with jam, fruit, and a cake of some sort. The kitchen staff was attentive and always kept the buffet full. Self serve coffee was available 24x7.
The location is excellent. It's located on a nice shaded street that is just a 5 minute walk from the beach. Lots of restaurants, markets, pharmacies, banks, and clothing stores are within a 10 minute walk. The big park, Prefeito Ferraz, is just a 10 minute walk away. On Saturday’s it’s loaded with vendors selling anything from food to clothes to puppies. BiBi’s is just across the street from the hotel and is a good place to eat. A bank is just a few doors down from BiBi’s. The Yogaberry shop is diagonal from BiBi’s and the young ladies there had a good time helping the language impaired Americans order what we wanted.
We would stay here again without reservation.
