I had stayed at the Hotel Pestana Curitiba Brazil, on a business visit for 3 weeks, on being recommended as the best Hotel in Curitiba; Unfortunately, the experience was very far from being any where close to the best!! Even basic stuff like replacing the laundry lists and laundry bags or replacing hand towels in the wash room were not done or were done very inconsistently!! One of the bulbs had blown its fuse in the wash room during the 2nd week of my stay and had not been replaced till I left. They might have replaced it if I had informed them, but that is what this hotel is all about... Nothing is done pro-actively; The hotel was also lacking in some very basic amenities like providing a clock/Time piece in the room or a hot water kettle/Jug for a cup of tea. The Breakfast spread was a very mediocre fare and was essentially the same stuff on all three weeks, with no variations!! At times, a couple of items went missing from the spread. I was located on the 9th floor and could constantly hear the noise of the traffic or the chatter of the people from the road side bar below, particularly on the nights of the weekends. The Gym was also mediocre, with only 1 out of the 3 treadmills working on the days that I had visited. I had seriously contemplated shifting to another hotel at the end of the 1st week itself, but the only reason I stayed on was because of its proximity to my office vehicle pick up location.

Room Tip: Higher floors will hopefully be free from the noise of the traffic and the road side bar below.

Quick and efficient check in. Staff at reception speak excellent English the 3-4 times that I have visited this property. Internet is free and fast at this hotel. They are also great about giving you multiple passwords so that you can connect multiple devices to the Internet at this hotel. Room is standard for a business hotel - as you can see from the pictures, but it is clean and functional. Breakfast is served on the second floor and is a nice spread. The gym and pool at the top floor of the hotel are the highlight here. Large gym with 5-6 pieces of cardio equipment(usually 1-2 are under repair). There is a multi-station gym machine, a station for leg presses and a nice range of functional equipment. The pool is also excellent and they have a steam room as well. Location of the hotel is good and you are minutes away from many excellent restaurants. Please acknowledge this review as helpful if you have found it so.

Nice location in the heart of Curitiba. I was impressed by the size of the room, which was also very clean and confy. Not a spectacular hotel, but perfect for business travellers. Walking distance from many good restaurants. Good breakfast, free wifi.

I travelled to Curitiba for work for 3 months . Out of all the options chose pestana only because of it's location . It was right next to my office .
But I stayed there I realised it could not be better in terms of comfort also. The service in pestana is spotless. There was almost nothing that I needed and they denied for it . I did try moving to a different hotel for 2 weeks just to make my stay more cost effective but I had to run back to pestana because they had spoilt me with there great service.
Along with great and comfortable rooms , pestana has a gym , heated pool, sauna, spa , lounge and restaurant. I did not eat much in pestana, because the food in pestana was just average as compared to the price that we pay. Also the free wi-fi was just ok, but good enough to browse Internet and check and send mails.
The best place in pestana was it's heated pool and gym, it had amazing view .
Will definitely stay in pestana , wheneverI am in Curitiba again. I can rate pestana as excellent for the great service , it's pool and it's location !!

The Pestana Curitiba is an efficient hotel--standard rooms and bath like any hotel anywhere in the world. The restaurant serves average food, mostly Western with few Brazilian choices and high prices for the quality. Service is attentive--just don't ask for hot water for tea as it takes forever if they remember hehe. The front desk and porters are always accommodating and efficient. In terms of dining, check out online recommendations. Finally, the location is downtown which may be efficient for working but is not the nicest area of Curitiba. Be sure to take a local tour and see the Botanical Gardens, parks, Opera House in the Quarry, the historical district and more. It will give you a totally different perception of Curitiba.

Room Tip: Higher floors are better but not too close to the top as you will smell the chlorine from the pool.

A hotel of reasonable size, with a convenient location. Front desk people were reasonably cooperating (could be more). The hotel lobby has a Bar/Brewery near the reception (sharing the same space) which is noisy and not very pleasant. I was on the 15th floor with a great view. The room was spacious with a large bed; the decor could be cozier. The bathroom could be bigger and have a tube. The swimming pool at the roof is a must. The breakfast room was reasonable and the choices were excellent, with a very good selection of fruit and bread.
Despite some flaws, I recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: choose a room in a high floor (great views)
