“Not a big deal, but could be much worse”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

... despite the very nice (and some of them best German and well English speaking) an avarage hotel where we found some better cost efficiency in Brazil - but if no time or guts to search too long, a save and sufficient deal indeed.

one of the tradition hotels in Blumenau on the main street. Close to the shops on Rua XV and the Neumarkt shopping center, both in walking distance. Firendly staff, good service, nice breakfast but a bit old-fashioned. Heavy wooden doors and massive dark wooden furniture in the rooms. Ols fashioned TV. Important to say that everything is in very good condition and maintenance is held high.

I have stayed in this hotel 5-6 times and it only keeps getting better each time. The service and location are great here. Especially the customised service and attention by Mr.Julio everytime for which I d like to thank him and its never enough. Id defenitely stay here again and suggest everyone who is going to Blumenau , its the best hotel, period.

Room Tip: Top floors and try to book it before otherwise they sometime have good deals on their websites.

I stood at the hotel for 12 nights. The hotel is centrally located in Blumenau city with a shopping centre in walking distance, several restaurants and the main shopping street are close by. Breakfast is ok, but nothing special. The hotel restaurant is ok, but expensive. Try to get rooms on the lower floors (refurbished and better than the ones on the upper floors). Blumenau itself is somehow odd; Little Germany in Brazil.... Interesting experience. Safe place!

I grew up near Blumenau and everybody knew that the Plaza Hering (the former name of this hotel, when it was still owned by the Hering group) was the most exclusive in the region.
When I finally stayed there, I was really disappointed. Let me explain point by point.
The carpet in corridors and rooms looks dirty and is stained after decades of use. The fridges in the room are oooold, rusty and noisy. The bathroom is miserable. The faucets are worn out and don't work properly after 35 years of use.
Beware of taking a room facing 7 de Setembro Street, because the traffic noise comes into your room unfiltered.
The overall decor in the lobby might have been fancy when the hotel was new, but now it shows how bad the taste for decor was in the seventies. I mean, really bad taste. The color matching. Unbelievable! My eyes hurt just by recalling the scenes. Breakfast is quite good, as the service. Unfortunately, it doesn't help me to get a better overall opinion about the hotel.
By the way, I had the impression they are not spending much on maintenance. It seems my impression was confirmed by an accident that happened in April 2011: a boiler exploded, destroying a part of the facilities building. Luckily, nobody got hurt.
So it's not just a bad experience because of being ugly and outdated: it can become dangerous as well.
Actually, I'm very sad to say this, but Plaza Blumenau embodies perfectly the term "decadence".

Tip: Ibis Hotel is one block away, it's much cheaper and doesn't pretend to be something it isn't.

Room Tip: Avoid the rooms facing 7 de Setembro Street - they are very loud due to the near trafic.

Stayed at this hotel to attend the annual Octoberfest that is held in Blumenau. Blumenau has one of the world's largest Octoberfest held outside Germany, or actually the largest in all of the America's (from what I read). The party is indeed huge, with three very large halls playing a mix of Octoberfest music (i.e. German Polka), mixed with Rock, Pop, and Brazilian music. There must have been at least 30K+ people there during any given night. Starts late - after 11:00pm, with the largest crowds gathering by midnight

It takes a short taxi ride from the hotel to get the festivities. I stayed two nights in the standard room on a high floor...unfortunately with the windows open there was alot of street noise, but with the windows closed and AC running it was quiet and comfortable. The rooms are a little dated, but comfortable. One my last night I stayed in a superior room, which was a small suite. Again a little dated - but rooms had comfortable king size beds and both types of rooms were good sized

Since I stayed at the Octoberfest until 5:00am in the morning, I missed the included breakfast so can't report on that.

The hotel has a restaurant, but otherwise dining options seem very limited in general in Blumenau. There is a mall within walking distance with a decent food court, where I ate each day.

Overall a decent 3 star hotel (by Brazilian standards a 4 star). Comfortable, free WIFI, and an attentive staff. Again, a good choice even just from the perspective that lodging options are limited....especially during Octoberfest.
