Just enough for a night’s sleep… no thrills
Posted Jul 1, 2014 on Hotels
Chose it knowing exactly what to expect, having read all the other reviews and knowing a “4” was the maximum score I thought I was going to find. To be honest, I expected less. Found it interesting for basically one reason:LOCATION! It’s right in the middle of most highlights of Brasilia. Sightseeing is very comfortable and within reasonable walking distance to/from the vast majority of attractions. Since I was in town for a night and to see a Football match of the World Cup, it was the best option. The hotel itself is a worn down and far from its glory days. The rooms are big and the two double beds they put together made the bed an extra king size which was good for the sleeping possibility, though unfortunately they don’t have matching sheets, which turned out into a messy bed, sleeping on the mattress itself sometimes. I got a room which had its AC unit damaged which I was told was going to be repaired, therefore had to wait for a couple of hours for… no one to show up! After asking again, they said it was too late and I had to get a room change. The new room was in the basement level, without a window but it was better than staying in a room without AC. The staff was friendly and helped out. The bathroom was spacious and though old, it was good enough. Breakfast was OK. As I said, it was what I expected and it’s a great option for a night’s sleep and if you want to be right in the center of it all, for the right investment.
