One week stay

The hotel is perfectly located in a safe area, close to many places of interest. The staff was fantastically friendly, as everyone everywhere in the town! The room was smaller than expected, but well kept and with a great bathroom. I was supposed to have a view on the inner garden, but do not expect anything close to it. It seems the whole block is under renovation, so you suffer from the noise and the workers' direct view into your room. There was no balcony (which would have been useless in such conditions anyway) and the windows were locked. Available channels on the TV are scarce. Breakfast is not included. I would advise to cross the street and go to any of the close bars which serve excellent and cheap breakfasts and menus. The wellness center of the hotel is worth the visit, though. I have had a great time there, enjoying all kinds of care provided by nice and attentionate people.

Great 4-day getaway

Beautiful hotel in the city center. We had a very nice deluxe room overlooking the main square. The room was big and quiet and tastefully decorated. So was the bathroom. Everything functioned well. The food in the restaurant was very good but we were disappointed with the service at dinner as we waited more than an hour between the starter and the main course. One would expect a better restaurant service in such a category hotel.

Un Hotel bien situé

Pros: Central, personnel aimable et serviable, propreté des chambres
Cet hôtel mérite amplement les 5 étoiles de sa catégorie officielle. Très bien situé dans le haut du quartier historique, il est à portée de "foulée" de tous les sites les plus important de la ville ce qui est un avantage indéniable pour un piéton comme moi qui aime découvrir les villes à pied. La gare de São bento est également toute proche.
