Hotel Pousada Sao Francisco

Reviewed April 7, 2011

Good mattress and pillows; nice pool; ok breakfast; great location on parade route for Carnaval and short walk to Historic Area. Also close to good restauants.

Moldy bathroom, dripping shower tap, shower drain partially plugged so you stand in a pool of water, no place to hang wet towels, tiny area for hanging clothes - a 16" space and 4 hangers for two adults. Worst of all are the very dirty walls in bedroom and bathroom. Wi-fi worked only in lobby and pool area and never in the room.

While our Booking.com reservation was registered - reservation being a troughout Brazil problem - and we were kindly welcomed, we have some mixed feelings about this hotel.

The standard rooms in the back, behind the pool, are grotty and not worth the price. The famous window with broken glass at the poolside is still broken. Maintanance and daily upkeeping is certainly a problem here. We were offered a deluxe room at the front which was better. The bathrooms there, also, are pokey though. The aircon is fine.

On the other hand, the pool is nice, the restaurant and bar at the poolside great, the breakfast fine, the location can not be better. Easy to walk to the center, taxi's can reach the hotel in a second.

Our biggest problem were bugs, which we suspected were biting us at poolside. Untill, just after having checked out, another guest came complaing about bedbugs. Then we knew!

we stayed there 3 nights with my 4 year old and 14 year old. Very noisy, depressing rooms. The pool area was ok and the staff in reception were friendly. Not very well maintained, a window smashed in a room overlooking the pool on our first day, 3 nights later is was still broken.

Room Tip: Prefira quartos próximos à recepção, pois quanto mais pra cima, pior o acesso.
