I had already stayed at the Pestana once before and was happy enough with the hotel. But, after looking back at my previous review, I may have been a bit critical. Again, I found the hotel to be very clean and well furnished. However, on my last stay, I found the style to be a bit too "modern" and not very cozy/relaxing. On my second visit, I have to disagree. The style is still sort of modern and minimalist, but I found it to be very comfortable and welcoming this time around. Perhaps it may been influenced by the fact that I moved here after staying 2 nights in another Curitiba hotel that I really did not enjoy, but I felt quite at home in the room on this visit, so I felt the need to correct my previous feedback.
As for some of my other feedback from my last stay.
-No real change of opinion about the location. There is not a lot do do or see in Curitiba, but the Pestana is in a good location for the city with plenty of shops, restaurants and bars in the area. Felt fairly safe around the hotel too, even after dark.
-Still wasn't thrilled about the breakfast. Not the worst I have had and it was better than on my last visit, but it did not blow me away either. Pretty typical hotel buffet I guess.
-WiFi was included in the rate again and I was not limited in the number of devices I could connect like last time, so big improvement there.
-In my lats review, I said, "All in all, for the price (about 170 EUR per night), I imagine there are much better options in the area." For starters, I tried one of the other options (Mabu) and no, it was not better (and it was basically the same price at that). Second, the rate was much more reasonable this time around (~$110-120 per night and was booked last minute).
I can say for certain that if I come to Curitiba again, I will definitely book the Pestana. Quite enjoyed my last stay with them and have no interest in trying any of the other hotels in the area again.
