The hotel staff is very friendly, and the breakfast foods are well made, however, despite what the website might show, the hotel is located in a not so great part of town. Surrounding the hotel are graffiti covered buildings, homeless, and an unfortunate view of an abandoned apartment building. Additionally, the entrance to the hotel is located in a not so flattering back alley. When we first arrived at the hotel, even our cab shared a small laugh with us as we exclaimed, "This is the hotel?". A better recommendation would be to stay in the Bairro Alto, a nicer, trendier, more tourist friendly part of town.
