There are much better options
Posted Jun 23, 2014
I went into expecting very little. And I got even less than what was expected. The room was in the corner of the hotel, which made WiFi reception impossible in the room. During my stay, the window a/c / heat unit did not work, and they did not fix it during my stay. The room was damp...it's hard to describe but everything just seemed wet in the room. Pillows, sheets, towels, clothes, etc. Towels I hung to dry never actually dried. I had friends staying in Hotel Lancaster for a couple extra bucks a block or so away and the staff was amazing and the rooms were the nicest I had seen during my two weeks in Brazil for the world cup.
The staff at this place was also supposedly versed in English. This was definitely not the case. Every other hotel had English speaking staff. I also had a guest over in my room one night so the couple he traveled with could have a day to themselves...this place charged me 60 reais (~$27USD) for my guest for the night...I'm not even sure how they knew he was there. I complained about the Wifi and window ac unit...no avail. I'd stay away from this place, but hey what do I know. I only went during their busiest time when they were trying to do everything they could to provide a good service. And dear lord was it awful.
