Unique location. Oasis in Olinda. Great Gardens. Great breakfast. wonderful and huge sparkling pool. Good and helpful Staff. To have to pay extra for the safe in the room. Bathroom and products in it ( shampoo, soap, etc. ) could have been better. Some problems with the Internet in the room.
Pool area was excellent room was a bit simple
Wonderful pool area. Only the bar desk, not nice sitting area nearby
1. sport center closed between 12 and 4pm. Absurd. I choose the hotel even for that reason, and if I wanted to jogg at 3pm I have to make a story at thereception. 2. I asked for a little iron for 1 hour. they do not have it for security reason
The hotel in conveniently located in Boa Viagem, close enough to the Ocean and at the same time far enough to avoid the noise and traffic of the oceanside. Hotel staff is very friendly and the breakfast buffet excellent. Like most of the buildings in Recife having a smell caused by the high humidity levels, this was not an exception, even though the staff made everything possible to help
Excellent staff, wonderful location, stayed there before and will do so in the future
I dont like nothing. There was dirty, broken lights, air-conditioner was very lauth and dont work very well in room was very hat.
no hassle for tips from any staff. quick and easy check in and out. baggage carried to room promptly and full intructions for use of TV rather faded decor for star rating,
It was low cost and a not bad location. The staff were pleasant The lobby was nice but the elevators, halls and rooms were very rundown and needed updating. The bed was a disaster!!
The pool looked beautiful although we did not take the time to enjoy it. I'd rate this hotel less than 1 star. The room was very old and run-down. In need of much repair. We reviewed two rooms before accepting one at 1am in the morning. Floor career stained badly, walls dirty. The bathroom in need of desperate repair and renovation. I would equate it to the worst motel 6 in California, but actually I have never stayed in such a rundown hotel ever. And for the price I expected much better. I had originally planned 3 nights but only stayed one. The pool was the only thing nice about the hotel. It really should be closed for repairs and renovation. If you want a nice clean and comfortable accommodation this would be far far from your expectations. And the staff told us they parked the car in the garage and charged us for it, but they parked on the street instead, so we had to demand our fee be returned. Lastly the free wifi/internet is very very slow in your room And dropped often as we were looking for another hotel.
The hotel was located near the airport and the beach. The hotel is in need of updating and a deep cleaning. The entire place smells of mold.
Spacious room, good breakfast Rather run down hotel
The staff were friendly at this hotel. It was closely situated to the beach and had a reasonable pool (though looking a little dated). They also provided free WiFi, however this did not work in our room and only in the pool area / lobby. Our room was very outdated (looked like the last fit out was in the 60´s). The ceiling in the bathroom was only partially covered, revealing a very old and very dusty air conditioning unit! This hotel would have been nice closer to when it was build, however they should renovate to be asking the prices they do.
Only location is good Hotel opend 1996 - since that time they updated only price. Rooms rum down and shaby, food: cantina, service: bad. Youthhostel might be better! Never again!
The room we were assigned to: Alto da Se, spacious, nicely decorated, great view. The location, at the center of historical Olinda allows for a walking tour. The restaurant and food. The location for the Olinda Carnival is the best in city. Cleanliness of the restaurant restroom. It would be great to have an elevator, but I understand this is an historical building.
We had several kinds of disturbances associated to noise. When arriving we asked kindly to change to another room because the one they gave us was on the top of the restaurant. They moved us to another house and did not tell us that the wall was to the garden of a huge restaurant. So, our kid could not sleep and we did not have any fun, because we could hear loud music and noises of mixer, dishwashes, and restaurant untill 4 AM.
the free wireless internet was great, the hotel was near the beach. the staff was attentive and helpful the breakfast was fantastic and tasty. not much choice when it came to food. the hotel was far from the center of town. the only English station was the Communist Network News (CNN) the beds were not very comfy. the view from the room was a roof of a building next door. The room had a broken a/c unit, which was replaced. the hot water was seldom hot. the safe never worked,
The front desk was very helpful to this non-Portuguese speaking customer. The room, while small, was all I needed and it did have a view of the ocean. The room and bathroom were clean and well maintained. The included breakfast had a good variety of fresh items. The hallways where hot and humid but who spends any time in a hallway anyway? The air conditioner was a bit noisy but did not really mess up my sleeping. The one item missing from the breakfast selection was bananas, which i found strange coming from a part of the world where bananas seem to be readily available.
I think tha localization was good, but the rooms and the bathrooms ware not confortables
The rooftop swimming pool was nice, though small. The breakfast was one of the better we found in Brazil although average by European standards. The 'sea view' was not worth paying extra for, as the hotel is situated some 100m or so from the sea.
Its good location and proximity to the beach. Breakfast was decent too. Hotel is situated in touristy neighborhood, I was robbed in the alley going to the beach just to the left of hotel in the broad daylight. Use the safe deposit box provided!
location, roof top facilities overpriced for its category, poor satellite choices, there are better options in the area.
staff are well trained, always ready to help a turist and very kind; very good breakfast site did not announce that the swimming pool was not available; need to review air conditioning
Excelent location, next to all nice clubs, night life but also beaches and the old town of Recife. Excelent for young couple but also for romantic vacation
Well located, friendly staff and very good breakfast.
The buffet breakfast was worth looking forward to, would like to there again just for the breakfast Workers doing construction every day I was there, right nnext to my room. Management had no explanation but sorry
The staff was trying to be helpful, but their lack of English skills makes it very difficult to converse. One young lady at the desk was proficient in English and was particularly helpful and knowledgeable. The restaurant is quite good. Every meal I had there was tasty and the daily breakfast was hard to beat. The view of the ocean over the palm trees is quite nice. No apparent ability to call taxis. The morning rush to the football match was a mess, they were completely unprepared. The rooms are old and dated, but comfortable enough. Without air conditioning, they would have been unbearable. The air conditioner window cut-out leaked due to the driving rains. Little bugs in the room on the desk, probably mites. Hopefully they are still in Recife and not in my home! This is a no frills place a bit further southeast than the nicer areas with perhaps more action in Recife.
