“Great pousada”
Reviewed 25 August 2014

Stayed for 3 nights in July/August 2014 with our two children aged 11 and 8. We loved Chez les Rois. The location is away from the city centre so is quite quiet but the area is very nice with some good little restaurants and shops locally (try Supreme Brigadeiros - absolutely delicious Brazilian sweets) and the Milleninnium Shopping centre is 10 mins walk away. The rooms were not luxury but fine. We loved the little swimming pool and there were interesting little seating areas hidden around so you felt really at home. The staff were charming and the breakfasts were good (particularly the cinnamon pancakes with bananas). Recommended.

Chez les Rois is an exceptionally friendly, well run pousada where the helpful staff can't do enough for you. Basic but clean and functional rooms, attractive communal areas, free wifi and a decent breakfast are all to be expected and the small but appealing pool is an added bonus. It's a little off the beaten track (make sure you get clear directions to give to taxis as mine got lost coming) but you can be in downtown Manaus (for what it's worth) in 10 mins and 20 real. A very warm recommendation for a friendly, low key place.

Room Tip: Larger rooms on the first floor - the triple with verandah that I stayed in was great although noise...

If you are truely looking for a home away from home, with the hosts Mauro & Ethel as your temporay family in Manaus, Brasil, this is the place to stay! The rooms, pool and food are excellent. Mauro is a very special person and his staff are an extention of him in the way he runs his Bed & Breakfast. English, not a problem. Staff quick to help and make your stay memorable. Mauro speaks excellent English. Value for what you get when you stay here is also a great deal. I would definitely stay here again and will pass his name on to others who plan to stay in Manaus.

Room Tip: Bed and breakfast but feels like home.

My wife and I stayed in Manaus for 4 days during the World Cup. Chez Les Rois was our choice based on price, and ratings. This little B&B is all you could ask for in manaus. The rooms are very clean, and very well air conditioned, which you want to make sure you have here.
The breakfast was fantastic each morning by the pool, with fresh juices, delicious coffee, and options for omelets made fresh for you. These are the reasons you will be happy here, the reasons you should stay here above all others is the friendlieness and helpfullness of the staff. They were very helpful in providing ideas for us to do while in Manaus on non match days, as well as, calling rides for us that were there in an instant. In a quiet part of Manaus you will need rides to most areas of town, but downtown, the stadium, and the river are all withing a 10 minute taxi ride for less than 20 dollars US. Also at the end of the day we found it nice to grab a cerveja out of the room fridge for only a dollar or two, and sit by the pool to relax.
Would definately recommend this hotel to anyone heading to Manaus, and also recommend the city itself as more than just an overnight before you head on your Amazon adventure. The people in this city are very friendly and warm. Definately a great location in the world!

Room Tip: Try and get a room on the second floor as there is a lovely balcony overlooking the pool area, and t...

This is a charming hotel in a residential area in Manaus. Jessica was so helpful to us. She spoke English and paid attention to many details that helped make our stay so much better. She was flexible and accommodating about our arrival/departure times. The hotel seemed understaffed during the World Cup. I think they are not use to that many visitors. Nice pool area. Very friendly staff.

Just returned from Brazil where I stayed at Chez Les Rois on a 2 night then 3 night trip (with a jungle stay inbetween) during the World Cup.

Firstly, I arranged the trip around 8 months in advance, price was agreed and card down to secure (not charged, just as a deposit). Around 2 weeks before check-in I received a mail suggesting they would now charge my card (which was fine) but the amount was the amount we agreed + an additional charge for 5 days x 2 people breakfast. I went back and highlighted a previous email (from the first communication) where they suggested breakfast is included to which they replied "Over the World Cup the manager now decided he wants to charge extra for breakfast" - only in Brazil!

Otherwise, apart from this I had an excellent stay at the hotel. The staff were very helpful and accommodating, a real credit to the place. They allowed us to leave our luggage at the hotel whilst we visited the jungle, they also had a service to clean our clothes at a very reasonable price.

The rooms were fairly spacious (we stayed upstairs, I do not remember the room number) a double bed and a single, air conditioned (which you need in Manaus). Good shower, they were also cleaned every day.

Ended up having breakfast in the end, it was very good with fresh juices, fruit and freshly cooked eggs which is ideal in the Sun when you wake up.

The pool was small but big enough to relax in to get out of the hot Manaus sun. Due to the place not having too many rooms it was always pretty quiet.

With me being at the hotel over the time of the World Cup, I did not walk too far from the hotel to see the area (tended to get a taxi to the center or the stadium), however I did once and found a really good Churrascaria called Buffalo, worth checking out and only a 5 minute walk away

All in all, other than their change of mind on the agreed pricing...I had a really good stay at Chez Les Rois and would definitely return.
