I am returning to the Champagnat Hot in one month - this will be me third stay at this hotel in the past 5-years.

The Champagnat was recommended to me by friends and acquaintances from Switzerland. They traveled to Vila Vehla for a wedding - the groom is from Switzerland, the bride from Vila Velha. The Swiss in the wedding party had never been to Brazil and wanted to stay in a 'Brazilian' hotel and not at an 'international' hotel, of which they were all to familiar. The bride's father made the reservations at the Champagnat since it was owned and operated by a Brazilian family and within walking distance to his families' beach-front condo, restaurants, Banco do Brasil and shopping.

My Swiss friends told me their stay at the Champagnat was "perfect." Clean, comfortable, quiet rooms; a friendly, helpful and accommodating staff, plus a wonderful Brazilian breakfast every morning - "The staff made us feel so welcome in their country!

So I took their advise when my schedule brought me to Vila Velha, and I am so happy I did.

The roof-top pool is never crowded and is a perfect place to work on my tan, although the beach is only a short 2-block (7-minute) walk from the hotel. Directly across Champagnat Avenue are very good restaurants (Italian), an ice-cream shop (French), barber/beauty salons, a grocery store, pharmacies, gift shops and clothing stores - all within 5-minutes of the Champagnat's front entrance. Banco do Brasil is across Hugo Muso Avenue, a very short walk, for any currency conversions that are necessary.

When I checked in the last time, I was happy to see the same people working at the desk from my first visit - and they recognized me! I'm sure the same will be true this time, and for all my future stays at the Champagnat Hotel.

Room Tip: Request two key-cards when you check-in, in case you want to recharge a phone or computer when you leave the hotel .

Very helpful hotel staff. The location is great. No view. Breakfast was good, many choices.
What I didn't like was the fact that I left the hotel with bug bites on my legs. I feel sad that I have to say this about the hotel. But I believe that if the manager and owners read reviews posted, they will see and try to change.
The bathroom wasn't clean, the pillows need to be changed, they are too thin, I couldn't sleep well. The blankets are old.
I would recommend changes in the room. For the price charged, I expected something better.

Room Tip: Either ask for extra pillows, or bring your own. Bring spray for bed bugs.

The staff is really friendly and the breakfast was good. Even though the hotel is a block from the beach, I don't recommend for more than a couple of days, since the rooms are way too small and for the same price you might get a good deal at a chain hotel. The rooms need some extra lighting and new blankets.

This is a family-owned hotel used by business people throughout the year, and often the choice for families and couples visiting friends during holidays and vacations. I have stayed here 3 times during the past 4 years, this is genuinely a happy place. There are 3 residential floors, with no elevator, which is no concern to me thanks to the ever-present staff. The roof-top pool is immaculate, never crowded and offers a wonderful view of Vila Vehla and the historic Convento de Penda. The Bank of Brazil is across the street, next to it is a small grocery store, 2 blocks further east is the beach. A pharmacy is across the street. Within 2 blocks north on Hugo Muso Ave. are very good restaurants (terrific Brazilian pizza), LaBasque ice cream shop and gift shops. The free breakfast at the Champagnat is so Brazilian, so wonderful, so well cared for that I weep
when I think about it. I am a retired business man myself, who values the hotel essentials more than pretentious amenities as seen on TV - The Champagnat is a terrific value and a wonderful place for me.

Room Tip: Ask the desk for two keys if you are planning on recharging a cell phone, iPad etc when you leave the room unoccupied. When you remove the credit-card-like key from the wall slot, all power to the room is disconnected
