Stayed at this hotel for 6 nights, starting on March 29th. I prepaid - the only reason I didn't move on.
Excellent breakfast, good location and fast wifi. And that's all.
As shown in the attached pics, extremely small and badly furnished room. Where are you supposed to keep your clothes? Certainly not in such a huge closet!
Our room faced the street: till midnight there is (every night!) a bunch of men drinking, yelling, sometimes arguing - you won't sleep.
At 6 am a truck loads tand empties the garbage receptacles located in front of the hotel. Unless you are on pills or passed out, prepare for an early awakening!
The coffemaker was delivered on request - as advertised. And had to be changed because it wasn't working. The cups weren't cleaned - maybe I should request that to! Cable TV: some channels weren't working - problem solved after our annoying insistence to call the cable company.
Last not least: our prepaid receipt said all taxes included" (impostos e taxas). The tried to charge me with something like city tax (4 E/person/night). "It's the law - (sic).
A german couple, ckecking out before us, was also almost charged for wifi access - their receipt stated free wifi.
So, should you choose to stay there, keep and reed carefully your receipt and terms of reservation. And travel lightly and with earplugs!
