I have been staying at this hotel for over a month now. What can I say?
Good points :
- fantastic location, close to the beach, shopping mall, restaurants, bus stop etc
- decent coffee in the lobby
-nice view from my balcony
- nice wooden floors in the apartment
-good quality furniture in the living room. Extra sofas for guests were handy for visitors
Good water pressure in the shower
- slow, noisy and overcrowded elevators
-Very old and noisy A/C
-leaking taps in the kitchen and bathroom
- poor equippment in the kitchen(literally 2 forks, 2 spoons, 1 knife. The plates are chipped and half broken)
-bed is in a sorry state. Linen ditto.
- staff members speak very little English
-interior is the lobby is old, the lobby is quiet small, one has to manouvre to get in or out of hotel while the guests are checking in / out
- the rooms are sort of cleaned every day( that means the rubbish is taken out and the floor is swept but not much else). The dust is thick enough to write my name on the table and the toothpaste remains are on the mirror for 3 weeks now. You get the picture...
Overall it's ok but the price is not reflecting the service you get at this hotel and standard is poor. Having said that do not expect european standard in Brazil.
