Reviewed 19 July 2012

This is not a good hotel. Staff don't care about you, bedrooms are poor, bathroom small, beds unconfortable, breakfast is a joke. The location is not for a family. Across the street you find a bar that is a prostitution point. You can find things better in Fortaleza. Don't stay in this hotel.

Fortaleza is generally I found run down. So the hotels follow. And so you can't really expect too much there generally.
The room is adequate and the hotel is adequate. The internet worked fantastically in the room.
Room is quite small and so is tv. View not very pleasant.
As I said Fortaleza is run down and lacking in hotels and so in tourist season,they can shoot up the price. Supply and demand. Unfortunately they don't have the standard to charge those sort of prices.
If you wanted to bring a lady friend back to your room,you will be charged 250 brazilian reals.

location is good. breakfast good. rooms clean but not perfect. staff is not really helpful. they are understaffed and always busy. room was small. mine was 3.6 by 3 meters. first surprise - in my reservation i asked a queen bed and i got... 3 twin bed! i mean 3 in a small room. i went downstairs the staff listened but did nothing to help. 2nd surprise - wifi (5 reais) doesnt work for my bb but also for other customers with netbook who were complaining. im not sure if they cancel the charge - i have to check. 3rd surprise - when my friend came with me to stay up for a few hours they asked me to pay for her 250 reais! incredible! i wouldnt recommend it.

We stayed here for one night while work was being done on our nearby condo. While the exact surrounding streets are not the nicest in the world (e.g., street kids, some beggars, maybe a druggie or prostitute passing by), and in general I might think twice before walking round really late at night, people certainly do, especially as the nightclubs a few blocks away let out, plus you are within a short walk of an okay beach and a few okay restaurants. I felt quite safe in the room and during the day wouldn't hesitate at all to walk anywhere. There are usually many taxis directly across the street by the church.

The rooms are small, but the beds quite adequate. Rooms facing towards the ocean (overlooking a small praça and church and small supermarket) cost more, but also put you away from a busy street in back. Rooftop pool area is quite small,but is a good place from which to watch sunset over the nearby Ponde de Metalica. The buffet brakfast, included in the price, is okay.

Hotel advertises that rooms have Wi-Fi or cable (you get the cable at the front desk). When I checked out I noticed a 5 Reais phone charge and they said it was for the Internet connection. I said nothing about this had been said to me and they took off the charge. Note that all hotels that I know of add a small (1-3 Reais) tourism authority charge, which you can have deleted if you say so (but you need to ask).

This hotel is nothing fancy, but I think it's probably nicer than the small pousadas in the area. There is one newer hotel, Sonata Iracema, down the street, at a slightly higher cost, with somewhat larger rooms but, curiously, smaller beds.

Room Tip: If you want one bed or two, specify in advance.

The hotel was very clean. There was a nice breakfast each morining. The staff was friendly and quick to help with a road trip we had planned to Jeri. There are good restaurants and shops within walking distance. The beach and market are about 10-15 minute walk but there are plenty cabs if you want to ride.
