“Lovely pousada in an unremarkable city”
Reviewed 16 April 2013

My first experience at a Brazilian pousada was excellent. Very subtle entry, look for a pagoda-type roof over the entry at the street. Frankly, my first morning I went out into the hood and nearly got lost coming home. The delightful front dest staff saw me wandering and shouted out to me! Thank you! The lovely front staff speak 2 languages (this should be a MUST for hoteliers around the world!). The breakfast is located in a lovely & covered patio. Eggs are also on the menu with the typical lovely Brazilian breakfast of baked goods, fresh fruit and juices and plenty of excellent coffee,
Our room was clean and large. Plenty of covered outdoor patio space for reading during one of Manaus's famous monsoons! Also, foreign travelers to Brazil beware: the demand-style showerheads throughout most of the country are a bit tricky in creating hot water. Get schooled how to operate them, or suffer cold showers like I did.
Chez le Rois is well located on a quiet street fairly close (10 min. taxi or 30min bus) to the waterfront or Theatre.

Reception staff are very friendly and there are a number of outdoor areas; balcony, lounge, breakfast room, pool to relax after a long day sightseeing. A cab in to town is about USD 7 which isn't too bad and the breakfast is good quality, bread, eggs, cereal and some cheese, juice and fruits.
The rooms are very comfortable nice fridge, showers, lots of storage space and good air-con. Helpful hotel staff and nice area with a few fancy restaurants and bakeries within walking distance

This small hotel is not what it might seem to be. Agreeabley some staff are willing. There was a major & simple error with my bill which defied any understanding/correction by the owner altho an honest staff member later emailed an apology and fixed it.
The hotel is patronized by a motorcycle gang who seem to be known by some staff.

Stayed here for a night before going for Amazon trip. Enjoyed our stay in a place with typical Brazilian charm. Kids (9 & 6 yrs) enjoyed the little pool. Staff was very helpful and had decent English. They let me use their office computer and printer as I had to print important document. Breakfast was ok. Will love to stay here again.

A few things to consider: its in a quiter neighbourhood away from Opera House (R15 cab ride in late evening) and the location is confusing. Make sure to take their card which explains the location. It may get a bit noisy due to wooden flooring.

My husband and I still talk about this hotel as being one of our all-time favourites! The staff are amazingly helpful and attentive, despite us not speaking any common language. The rooms are nice and clean, there are lots of TV channels to choose from and the wifi is very strong. The breakfast was delicious and every morning we were excited to go and eat! The location is good. Its not in the downtown area of Manaus but in the more upscale suburban area. We felt very safe walking to the malls and restaurants around the area, even at night. I would recommend anyone to stay at Chez les Rois.

Do not beleive the reviews. This is a cheap alternative but not a nice nor well run property. Hard to find. Slow check in. Smelly and sparse rooms. Internet is weak and spotty. Pool is dirty and so small and uncomfortable if anyone else is there. Staff tries hard but are not knowledgable about manaus attractions or restaurants. There are many other much better options for accomodations in manaus! Qualquer outro hotel em Manaus vai ficar melhor pra casal ou familia.

Staying at this B&B is more like living in the real Manaus than in the cocooned environment of a city centre hotel. It is a large old style family house converted for guests and there were about 7 ensuite rooms with air conditioning offering basic accommodation that was clean and comfortable. There is also a small plunge pool. It was a good base for the jungle trip we had booked and we were glad of the next day laundry facility when we got back.

Breakfast is the standard Brazillian meal, fresh juice, fruit, ham, cheese, breads and they will either fry or scramble eggs for you. An evening meal can be provided on request, but there are a number of places to eat locally.

The house is in a quiet suburb that still has much evidence of the faded splendour of the city. Manaus can be easily reached by taxi or a local bus and is about 20 min taxi ride from the airport. The apparent chaos for the taxis at the airport was actually quite straight forward, men in brown shirts asked where you were going and summoned a car which charged a fixed price to the city.

Any very minor grumbles about the accommodation were far outweighed by the genuine warmth of the staff who went out of their way to make us welcome and comfortable, and then helped us with finding our way round. The owner even gave us a lift to an ATM one evening then dropped us off at The Buffalo resturant where he eats with his family. This is a fixed price, all you can eat resturant offering a wide range of excellent quality food (see separate reviews)

We would certainly stay there again, and not just because they have the best Internet connection we have come across in Brazil !
