    About

    Situated in Fortaleza's popular Beira Mar neighborhood, the Carmel Express Hotel offers affordable rooms just steps from the beach. This cozy, 66-room hotel features dark wood and tropical decorations throughout the lobby, lounge areas, and guestrooms.

    Fortaleza is known for its spectacular urban beaches, year-round tropical climate, and relative safety for a Brazilian city of its size (more than 2 million people). So after checking in, your first stop will likely be Iracema Beach, located just 1 block away. Here you'll also find the Ponte dos Ingleses pier, a great place to watch the sunset with ocean and skyline views. Many of the city's most popular bars, dance clubs, and music venues can be found within a 10-minute walk in the Praia de Iracema neighborhood.

    Ready for breakfast? Head to the dining room overlooking the beach for a traditional northeast Brazilian breakfast buffet. The outdoor pool offers ocean views, perfect for a relaxing afternoon. In addition to the pool lounge, a separate patio is outfitted with comfortable chairs and tropical landscaping. The hotel has 2 TV lounges (including one with a tree growing through the ceiling!) where you can gather to watch a game or just hang out. Complimentary Wi-Fi Internet access throughout the property. If you want to book a tour of the city or an outdoor excursion, let the multi-lingual front desk staff arrange it for you.

    Rooms at the Carmel Express are designed with the hotel's rustic, tropical setting in mind: Dark wood furniture and accents tastefully contrast against off-white walls and flowing white curtains. All rooms have LCD televisions with cable channels, air-conditioners and small refrigerators.
