Hotel Araucaria Plaza
Ranked #2 of 31 Hotels in Ribeirao Preto
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 April 2014

Araucaria Plaza is the best business hotel in Ribeirão Preto. Located in a nice neighborhood - not far from Downtown but in a newer and nicer part of Ribeirão, this hotel offers good rooms (new furniture, spacious, nice bed) + an enourmous and good breakfast buffet (in fact the best breakfast buffet in the region).

The propriety is extremely well kept, with everything new or in good order. Leizure area is not big but works for a Business Hotel: the best part is a well equipped gym (most of the times gyms in other than five starts hotels in Brazil is constituted only by an old treadmill) and a large sauna area, but the swimming pool is also interesting albeit a bit small.

Staff is competent and helpful, with quick and efficient service to guests.

The only downsizes are some details: rooms facing the Avenue located in the side of the hotel building can have some noise during the night (nothing great as the hotel is located in a mainly residential area but this can be a problem in the future if someone decides to open a nightclub or bar in the area), plumbing is also a bit noisy (at least in the floor where I stayed - 14th floor) and the rooms could have a bit of more light spots (lighting is done by lampshades and a lonely light bulb in a corner of the room).

As said, the downsizes are just details and Araucaria is the best option if you plan to visit Ribeirão for business or for a quick weekend.

Room Tip: Rooms to the "left" of the builiding (facing the neighborhood) are quieter than those ones...

It was the best Hotel in Ribeirao Preto five years ago. I think is still one of the best, but the City deserves a real top five stars hotel or should reforbish Araucaria Hotel and improve their facilities. In other hand the service is perfect. I"ll be there many times more because there are no competitors for now.

Nice big rooms, every taxi knew the place so it was easy to get to. Helpful staff with fairly limited command of english. The breakfast buffet is enormous but the rest of the food is rather average. Get out to one of the many delicious eateries instead. Room has wifi, and is a mini suite with a sofa, desk as partition and generous "bedroom" space. A mini kitchen (fridge, sink and plug) enabled me to plug in my travel kettle (yes, I'm that old). No iron "just use the washing service". Good cleaning from the maids, a nice yet small pool and a gym if you fancy these things.nd facing the other side if you like quiet. All rooms with A/C.

Room Tip: Ask for a room high up and facing the back, away from busy avenues and power lines.

Araucaria is a quite comfortable hotel with the usual facilities, nice rooms, attentive and cooperative staff, acceptable decor, quality toiletry, etc. Internet as in many Brazilian hotels is still considered to be something exceptional and so it is charged apart. Room price in the range of US$ 130. A good hotel to consider and definitely my option in Ribeirao Preto when I have a word in the decision. Everything is nice until you get down for breakfast. Hotel breakfast buffets in Brazil are notorious for their abundance and variety, but this one is a case apart. 7 sorts of juices, 10 options of fruits, eight different cereals, 20 different cakes and 24 different breads, all of them made at their cuisine, egg options, sausages, cheeses, hams, etc, etc, etc and with the staff asking if they can prepare something special for you. An unique experience.

Room Tip: Higher floors to avoid noises.

The hotel has a great location and is very well maintained. The rooms are clean and well taken care of very well. The fact that I stayed for business reasons (Facilitated a Quality Service Seminar) led me to be a little more critical. The only thing I found lacking were incidentals in the room. Pen no note paper, inconvenient location of the phone in the toilet area. That may sound picky but it made the room a little less suitable for in-room work. The staff were helpful, if not a little too serious. Very difficult to find many smiling faces. The quality of the meeting was good enough to stand with any I have presented in Brasil.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the city.

Spacious room, quiet, clean, great wifi, comfortable bed, good AC, cable TV with many channels, including some major international ones. Nice size bathroom, good shower but amenities were poor, no tissue available. Mini bar had the minimum needs. Nice staff. Breakfast was the highlight - one of the best I've had anywhere in the world, not to be missed!

Even though you can find better deals in the city in terms of cost, if you want the best hotel in Ribeirão Preto, this is the one. Spacious Rooms, modern, comfortable. Breakfast is one of the best I ever had in the country, lots of options and good quality. Staff could be a little more helpful.
