This hotel offers the best price-performance ratio and a stunning view - it was recommended to us by several Brazilians.
The interior is out and out 60ies style, it will fit perfectly into your Brasilia experience and make the impression complete :-).
General Tip: Go to Brasilia on weekends! Hotel prizes will drop then by up to 40%! Reservations can be easily made from the Tourist Information at the airport.
A taxi ride from the airport to the Hotel will be about 25-30 R$. Be sure to ask the taxi driver for the direct route (taxi-meters - and the use of them (!) - are quite common) or fix the price ahead - otherwise you'll get the indirect "tourist route" and pay about 50 R$!
There are some good options for the budget traveller: the guesthouses in W3-Sul avenue. They are cheap (about R$ 28,00 ~ US$15.00 a day). They are very simple places, generally homes that were turned into guesthouses and that are runned by a family (don't expect to have someone fluent in English to host you over there - in any case, if you need, I'll get in touch with them for you and arrange it). I'll later post some addresses of some of them.
They are a good alternative to the hostel of Brasilia, which is located in the most isolated area of the city, where few buses go in the weekends.
They don't have much to offer, but are very well located, in downtown Brasília, near bus stops, shopping centers, stores, restaurants and supermarkets and even some attractions are reachable by a few minutes walking.
If you are arriving in Brasilia without a hotel reservation, go to the Brasilia information center before you leave the airport. It opens at 8am.
I paid 100 reais for a hotel room which would have cost me 176 reais if I had just turned up at the front desk.
The office has a list of all the hotels who have unsold rooms which they are offering at reduced prices on a last minute basis.
