SIA Park is a self-proclaimed "executive hotel", located at SIA Sul, Guará, a suburban industrial district far away from the heart of the city. Looks exactly like other many 1970’s tiny, shoebox shaped, two-story hotels of Brasilia.
The difference is: this hotel was refurbished in a fashionable way, converted to a modern-look motel.
From the flat-screen TV set to the electronic safe, everything just looks fine.
A new aircon set, a gorgeous bed, hot water at the sink, nice ambient lights...
Some things, however, were not enhanced - like soundproofing. A lot of unwanted noises from the hallway (a TV set at the reading room) and from the avenue just in front of the hotel (pull the curtains!).
At the front desk, in the check-in, a very taciturn old man (which later become a bavardage at phone with his family); in the check-out, a courteous lady, but she tried to charge me a couple of beers (it was already in the bill - oddly enough, it was a one night stay).
The breakfast, a ordinary buffet, was served at the basement level.
The hotel staff has absolutely no skills in any language except Portuguese.
Looks like the owners tried to imitate everything from the good hotels from the Plano Piloto – including the room rates, way too expensive except if you are in central Brasilia.
If you have businesses near to the hotel (for instance, at AEB - the Brazilian Space Agency), this is a convenient place to stay, because SIA Sul is in the city's periphery and there's no good hotels around there.
Otherwise, you'll lose a lot of time and/or money no matter what you will do. No marts, restaurants or good public transportation in the neighborhoods, except for a Subway restaurant (Eat Fresh!) inside the service station just beside the hotel. And all the prices at the hotel are pretty expensive.
If all the Brasilia's good hotels are full to capacity (it happened to me), this is almost an acceptable option, since old hotels in Brasilia are mostly awful, and hotels at satellite towns like Taguatinga are totally out of the way.
Unless you are going to work at SIA Sul or Guará, try to find a better hotel first at SHS, SHN or SHTN (the Brasilia's hotel sectors, close to the city's most important and interesting places).
