I spent a weekend at this hotel before going to Canada.
Actually there is no negative point that can be found about this hotel.
THE STAFF: was really really awesome. They were very friendly and helped us with anything we needed. We were even given a card of the hotel so in case we get lost we could phone them and they would send us a taxi to pick us up. Actually, we didnt need it..but it was a very kind idea from them. If you read the rest of comments, you will check that everyone is completely happy with the staff.
THE ROOM: I booked a room with two separated beds (twin one). I just have to say that the room was big enough. I didnt need more space. Heating, I have read in another comment that its central and you cant turn if off. Well, I confirm that you CAN turn it off. It worked. I was keeping it on while I was out of the room and turning it off while I was in the room. I cant tell you if you can regulate the temperature because I really didnt care about that. The temperature was good with the heating off. the TV was flat, so nice. The volume was limitated in order to avoid that you set it very loud and annoy others, but it was high enough for people who like high volumes. Everything was new: beds very new and big ones, sheets..TV.. I used the paper of "please clean" in the morning and the room was cleaned, so I can just say that cleaning is also very good. The bathroom was very new, as the rest of the room, good design and no problem with the bath. The pressure of the water was good (some comment thinks is quite strong...anyway..i guess everyone has different likes). There was no noise, so no problem about sleeping well.
MEALS: I didnt eat at the hotel, so i cant say anything about it, but I can tell you that there are a lot of places near where you can eat (breakfast, lunch...). I only had breakfast near the hotel, lunch and dinner in downtown and belem since I was visiting that places and didnt want to go back to the hotel to eat.
THE PRICE: I booked the hotel using booking.com. In that moment it was cheaper than from the website of the hotel or other websites. It cost me exactly 50€ per night. A veryyy good price for this experience.
LOCATION: perfect. Its very close to the metro (Saldanha). Just 5 minutes walking. I have read in other comments that there are very good connections with the buses. I just used metro, anyway...now I know that there are also good connection with buses to downtown, belem or the airport (i would have liked to know about the bus to belem when I went)
PICTURES: no pictures are needed since you can visit the website of the hotel and rooms are exactly like pictures (they havent try to cheat showing the best rooms) or at least in my case.
CONCLUSIONS: no doubt. When you travel abroad you are always worry about getting a confortable accomodation. This is a perfect place to stay in.
