“Just terrible”
Reviewed 3 June 2010

Brasilia was designed in the 1960s. I think nothing in the San Marco has been updated since then.

The street noise is horrendous. This is all due to the completely antiquated windows in the hotel that really keep out zero sound. I felt like I was trying to sleep in the median strip of the highway next to the hotel. And I am a heavy sleeper.

The light switch in the bathroom worked 1 time out of 10. There was no hot water one of the two mornings I stayed there.

The staff are nice enough, they do a decent breakfast, and the roof deck is actually very nice. But its all overshadowed by how run down the rooms are and how hard it is to get a decent night's sleep with the traffic noise.

Stay somewhere else.

Reviewed 18 March 2010

It is in very poor condition. The doors and windows do not close all the way in several of the rooms that I saw. The outside noise is incredible. There is no sound proofing or dampering in the rooms. The rooms are also dirty, stains on sheets, dirty toilet, filth on sliding glass door. The location was good as was breakfast. Unless the rooms are totally free I would recommend that you look elsewhere.
