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!
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
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
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,
Well located, friendly staff and very good breakfast.
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
location, roof top facilities overpriced for its category, poor satellite choices, there are better options in the area.
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.
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
Location was really good, 2 block from the beach, plenty of restaurants in the area This hotel is a dump, there were very limited options to stay in Recife during the world cup so ownership took advantage of this. The rooms were small, old beds with just one linen and one cover, shower was disgusting and no hot water. Breakfast was decent, but bistro was smelly and dark, it was depressing, the whole property was like that Most of the staff was friendly, none of the them speak english, some spoke a little spanish but they tried to communicate with a great attitude, with the exception of a dark haired lady, I asked her a couple of very simple questions and she snapped back with a resounding, " nao sei",she seemed to be very upset to have a hotel full of real tourists, maybe she missed all the prostitutes that work in the corner and that must be the regular clientele of this establishment It is a shame the owners of this place did not spend a little money to clean it up for an event like the world cup. I'd would be ashamed to have guests from all over the world in a place like this
Not many things, breakfast maybe the smell, the state of conservation
the hotel was dirty very dirty the airco was making a lot of noice and there was the smell of urine
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
Wonderful pool area. Only the bar desk, not nice sitting area nearby
Pool area was excellent room was a bit simple
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
i stayed for 4 days and it was what i expected. so far so good staff
It's close to the airport and offers free internet access and air conditioning in the room. Big room. Dirty room, hairs and band aid in the shower. Breakfast was very minimal. Towels had been washed but still had stains on them.
It was convenient to the airport and not too expensive. The staff was very nice... very helpful. I was surprised to find what appeared to be the remnants of the maintenance staff have earlier worked on the bathroom. There was a dirty towel on the floor and work boot footprints in both the bathroom and from the bathroom to the front door. But, at midnight... I was very tired and just accepted the room. The included continental breakfast was not as plentiful as I have seen with most hotels in Brazil. The WiFi did not work in my room, even though the router was just down the hall.
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.
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.
I dont like nothing. There was dirty, broken lights, air-conditioner was very lauth and dont work very well in room was very hat.
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.
Spacious room, good breakfast Rather run down hotel
Excellent staff, wonderful location, stayed there before and will do so in the future
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,
My stay at the Plaza Hotel was great. The hotel has the views of Recife downtown and even the ocean. The staff was very friendly and accomodating to all my needs. I loved the free wireless internet in my room and throughout all restaurant/bar/lobby and even in pool area and game room. The Plaza hotel is near everything. The new remodeling looks nice, with a new sports court, pool, bar. The restaurant on 13th floor is beatiful. Their breakfast is superb with lots of variety, made to order omelets, smoothies, juices, etc. I will stay there again ! Potugues: Eu gostei muito do Plaza Hotel. o hotel e bem localizado e o servico foi muito bom. Gostei muito de ter free interent no meu quarto e em todo o hotel. Eu recomendo este hotel. There was some remodeling on the apts, and I heard that they will be updating the outside of the building next, but it wasn't a problem. Portugues: Eu notei que eles ainda estao aprimorando os quartos (apt) e outras areas como a parte externas do predio, mas nao foi problema para mim.
Only the location. The elevator was broken, internet was too expensive, there were cockroaches in my room. My laundry disappeared for two days.
It was the only hotel available at this time. I have never stayed at a hotel like this. The rooms looked like a small dirty apartment. Also they pushed two beds together to make a king bed and the sheets didnt fit the matress. The matress was exposed because the sheet was for a small bed. The air condition was an old box conditioner that was super loud! The toilet seat was a cushion plastic seat yuk!!! I have never written a bad comment because I too am a hotel owner but this was beyond gross!!!!
Location and breakfast no safe in room (we were given a key to the safe) - Ants in the room and on bed - Pool had no staff or towels, had to go to front desk and get towels. Lobby bar closed early 9:30pm, front desk spoke no english (very difficult to ask for things) Pool is not handicap accessible, we had to climb stairs to get to pool
