Majestic Palace Hotel Florianopolis
Ranked #8 of 97 Hotels in Florianopolis
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 22, 2011

If you're looking to stay in the city central, with a nice view of the Floripa, this is a good place to start off your vacation. From here you are at a good distance from downtown, where you can buy souvenirs and see the colonial Floripa. it is also not far away from here to tour the north of the Island and see the famous Laguna and some of the nice beaches up north. but, if you really want a beach vacation then I would probably look a little bit more up north to stay at one of the hotels that are beach front of the nice swimming/surfing/adventure beaches.
The breakfast is excellent, in a nice floor with great views of the city and the service is also attentive and good.

It was recommended for me by an executive who knows the city very well. And the hotel facilities as the staff are great. Unfortunately was a cold night and the hotel has no heating and no additonal blanket. So my suggestion is to avoid to go during winte time.

It is known and recommended by locals as one of the best hotels in all of Florianopolis but the only thing I could agree with was the view/location...everything else was average to below average. The room were nicely equipped with decent beds but the showers were dated and there's no HEAT!....was ther ein mid-winter and the room was 60 degrees at the warmest. The food in the main restaurant was below average and pricey and the breakfast was minimalistic compared to other hotels. I'd recommend the Sofitel a few doors down...similar pricing and a MUCH better experience.

I stayed in the hotel at least 5 times. The rooms are nice, most with a beautiful view. The bed and the linen could be better. Wifi internet free. The amenities are very simple, considering the fact that it's a five star hotel. Location is excelent. The breakfast is the major problem: the food is good, but the service is very poor, the worst i've seen in a hotel.

This hotel is not five-star. Do not be fooled by signs and the lobby.

We stayed there as a couple for two days and needed the most basic services to be good (such as food, internet, room service). However, these services were the most lacking.

There are no signs in english at all, so if you don't know portuguese you might be a little lost. The staff at the breakfast and room service are careless, lazy and do not pay attention to you and some are just plain rude.

Room Service food was expensive and not good at all. We ordered the fish and the caprese salad. Both just bland in taste and presentation was horrible.

The internet is horrible, we needed to stay in one afternoon and work, but couldn't really get anything accomplished. It seems that the hotel shares the internet with the whole block, it is not secure.

Overall, I would not stay there again if I wanted a five-star hotel.
The location is great and beautiful but that's all there is to it.

Room Tip: Buy and eat food at Beira-Mar Shopping across the street. More options and better price.

The hotel is well located, close to Floripa nightlife. The facilities are nice and should fit an European 4 star product. The breakfast is somewhat poor. The rooms are nice and big but hot water is sometimes a problem.

I went to Florianopolis for 5 days and chose the Majestic out of a list offered in a package of air+hotel. There were also options on the type of room to be chosen. I chose the "luxury room", the best of the choices above standard and superior. This meant I would get a room with a view of the city and ocean in the upper floors. I did get apartment 1112 and the view, although not frontal, but lateral. However, for a 5 star hotel I would have expected better cleanliness in the apartment. I have stayed in three star hotels with better and cleaner rooms than the one I got at the Majestic. I have added some pictures to prove my point. There were stains in the carpet, and in the bathroom, as well as the side panel of the glass desk was unclean and stayed so for the 5 days I was there. Moreover, I left a transparent piece of plastic fall on the carpeted floor in the morning and in the evening I step on it, which meant that although the cleaning staff made the bed, they did no vacuum the floor.
Another thing is that they charge an outrageous price for phone calls from the room. I know that hotels charge a premium for making phone calls from the room but I was aghast to find out that the 37 minutes and 41 seconds of calls made during the 5 days came out to be R$91.84 or US/CAN$61.23. I did ask at the desk when checking in the price of calls and they told me R$1.00 per minute (quite high) but it ended up being almost R$3.00 per minute!
