Max Savassi Apart Service
Ranked #18 of 118 Hotels in Belo Horizonte
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 June 2014

Stayed here during the World Cup and first off have to say the location is great if you want to be in the centre by all the bars, clubs and restaurants. However, that brings a downside as it is also very noisy and with Brazilians knowing to party don't expect a quiet nights sleep. Then in the morning you'll have to contend with the very noisy main road nearby.

The hotel and it's rooms are very dated and in need of a decor but the biggest downside are the 2 solitary lifts for the 20-odd rooms. This can make it very time consuming getting up and down between your room/ reception etc. staff also use these lifts and don't seem to know they should be using the service lift.

If you get a triple room, make sure there is one person under 6ft tall otherwise you may find your feet dqngling off the end of the sofa bed.

Wifi here is also very tempermental.

The buffet breakfast is ok as Brazilian breakfasts go, however, if there is high occupancy then it can be organised chaos.

Also, when checking out speaking to another visitor they had big problems with their laundry, of which half came back still dirty.

So overall if you're staying in BH I'm sure there will be better choices

Room Tip: The lower the floor the better!!

Booked a suite in this hotel last may 2014 with my 3 friends, was quite surprised that the room was so tiny since this hotel is an apartment type hotel. The bathroom was so mall that we had a hard time trying to shower. The free wifi was great though since it was fast, the breakfast served was also good, especially the coffee! The location was great, it was smack dab in the middle of savassi where the bars are located and near shopping malls. Patio Savassi Mall was a quick 10min walk. There is also a lot of small restaurants scattered around savassi. The room we booked is also quite cheap considering the location.

Would recommend this hotel for those travelling in pairs only. If you are more than 2 people, i would suggest getting 2 rooms since 3 people in a room was a tight fit.

This is like two hotels in one.

It's true that the reception is tiny, but all the other common areas are very nicely done, updated really a nice place to be. The apartments on the other hand seem to belong to a different property. They are relatively spacious but need serious updating and the lighting (with lots of those awful white fluorescent bulbs) is not pleasing at all.

The worst about the rooms, however are the couches to watch TV, they are quite shabby and very uncomfortable to sit in, especially for two.

On the positive side, the breakfast is plentiful, varied and quite tasty. And it does seem to be cheaper than similarly located properties. Oh, the location, BTW, is one of the best possible in Belo Horizonte.

Stayed for 4 nights including a weekend. The hotel is ideally situated for business in the Sevassi area and close to dozens of restaurants & bars, shopping. A very safe area of Belo Horizonte. The room itself was fairly typical for an apartment style room, high ceilings but missing any character. The internet connection was average, maybe a little slow by today's standards. Some but not all staff speak English. The included breakfast is decent but average.

Room Tip: Rooms to the rear should be quieter...the bars go quite late.

This place is really well located close to bars and restaurants, and the price is also really decent. The room itself needs renovation and a nicer decoration - but everything worked fine while I was there: TV, Air Con, Shower.
The breakfast was very rich and well served.

Room Tip: some rooms face the street and there's a loud bar nearby - try and ask for one not facing that.

I stayed at Max Savassi for a day while on a business trip to BH on my way back from Concelheiro Lafayiete / Congonhas. Considering its location, proximity to Patio Savassi, etc., the hotel is well maintained, offers excellent service, and the restaurant is especially great for such a welcoming price. I'll return to Max Savassi on my next trip to BH.

Room Tip: Try Max Savassi during your next trip to Belo Horizonte. You won't regret your decision.

The hotel is very well situated with a lots of places to eat around it. So if you really need the silence, ask for a back room and on a high floor. The 12th floor corridor was not so clean and the room could be repainted: it was quite beaten. The gas heater is one of the best features: the shower was PERFECT!

Room Tip: Quieter rooms are higher and not facing the street
