I stayed at this hotel soon after it opened in August 2011. Everything was brand new and very clean. It is a rather big hotel so your check-out procedure could take quite a while, as there are not many receptionists. Wi-fi internet was complimentary when I stayed at this hotel but I think that was only because of it´s recent opening (I think it is not free anymore). The bathrooms have very good showers with gas-heated water (be careful, it can literraly scald you!) Unlike other Ibis hotels I have stayed, this one has flat screen TVs. All rooms are air conditioned. Being a big hotel, tehere are not enough parking lots for everybody, but parking is free if you are lucky to find a parking space. I definitely recommend it for anyone looking for a budget no frills hotel that is clean, modern and comfortable.
This is the only NEW Ibis hotel in Curitiba, with flat screen TVs.
As it´s name suggets, it is within walking distance of a big mall called "Shopping Curitiba".
We've spent 2 very pleasant days at Hotel Exclusivo at Sao José dos Pinhais close to Curitiba. The rooms are huge and very clean, the food is excellent and the staff friendly and helpful. The hotel is situated in a pretty quiet area but still it's just a short distance to Curitiba. There are several restaurants and bars within walking distance
Close to Airport Afonso Pena
Non-smoking rooms and rooms for people suffering from allergies
Air condition, fridge, TV, phone
Restaurant and Bar
24 h room service
This is a hotel/flat.
There are 36 apartments. All with water-closet (wc), bath (hot & cold), wash-basin, air-conditioned (hot - for cool days and cold for hot days), telephone, TV cable, a litlle table,chairs,mobile, a litlle refrigerator, a litlle gas-stove, a sink, varanda, a sofa, and of course, a BED...
There are a 24hs-reception, garage, lift/elevator, a laundry, a breakfast-room with two water-closet, a internet room (US$ 2,00 each hour), room service everyday. Do not have a lunch/dinner room but there is a menu (hot and cold foods) to serve in the apartment, if you ask for.
At the last floor there are a litlle swimming-pool and a place to do a barbecue.
No problem to stay a car. The hotel/flat is located in a quiet street.
All services are good. The employees are gentle, nice.
This hotel/flat normally have executive-persons who come to Curitiba to work for two days a one week.(Congress, workshop, and so.) and they are not interesting in a luxurious hotel but in basic services and facilities with a low price.
So, this is a hotel/flat for basic-tourist like me. I will recommend this hotel.
Believe it or not, but this hotel/flat is the UNIQUE at 50 meters from the Pope Joao Paulo II Woods (Bosque Papa Joao Paulo II) a vip Curitiba tourist place !
It is a place for persons who like green, park, wood and jogging.
I do not know if the hotel is inside the park or the park is inside the hotel. A must !
There are less than 300 meters a supermarket, repair-shops, restaurants and so on.
The hotel is located at 1.500 m. downtown.(Praça Tiradentes-Tiradentes square).
25 minutes by foot.
The normal and tourist bus stopped in front at hotel.
This is one of the better hostels, at which I have stayed. It is about a half hour bus ride from downtown Curitiba, but in exchange, it is pretty quiet.

To begin our 6 month adventure in Brazil, my husband had to travel ahead to Brazil while I stayed behind wrapping up work in Canada. He left the first hotel he was recommended by locals-a LOVE HOTEL used for simply having sex -not for sleeping called the Hotel Nunes and went to the BARIGUI PARK HOTEL . The rooms at the Barigui Park Hotel smelled, dogs barked incessantly, they put him next to the maids storage room where they would yell and scream early in the morning...and the worst part-when I called there daily from Canada-they would put me on hold for ever....answer-laugh and hang up...put the phone down and talk in the background, or just say como...como and laugh before hanging up....and the worst part was the last day...sexual noises and heavy breathing....they cost me about 10.00 on my phone card with their stupidities-apparently they made my husband very uncomfortable when he walked in or out as well....so-when I finally reached him-he checked out at 3am and went to another hotel....DO NOT STAY HERE-even if it is only 42BRL....there are many options worth loking at-the Bristol Upper Residence and the Flat Petras...the first about 59BRL the second 75...but worth it
Many people like to spend the night near the train station. The train trip over the hill to the sea starts at 8 am for most passengers. (There is a local train sceduled to leave Curitiba at 9 am, but that is not as commonly used as the main departure at 8) Therefore, it is very convenient to be near the train station.
I have stayed in the Doral Torres, which is maybe 2 blocks from the tran/bus station. I have also stayed in the Victoria Villa, which is maybe twice that distance. Both were reasonably comfortable. The Victoria Villa is higher rated in the guide books because it has a few more extra facilities in the hotel. For my tastes, I am there to spend the night and ride the train in the morning. Why would I want all the added luxuries that I will not have a chance to use? It is up to you if you want to spend the extra money on such a place.
Doral Torres: Rua Mariano Torres 951, Centro, Phone (41) 362-2424, Fax (41) 264-7929. http://www.hoteldoral.com.br

In this section I will give some hints on places that I did not stay in, but might be better options if your goal is taking the train in the morning, or an early morning or late night bus trip from the train / bus station.
Hotels near the station but I have not stayed in, also include:
+ Vernon Palace, which is in the same block as the train and bus terminal. http://www.vernonhotel.com.br
+ Jaragua, which is slightly further away than the above, but closer than either of the two I have stayed in. Possibly with only one street to cross to get to the station. (41) 362-2022. It does not have a web site, so don't confuse it with the one in Santa Catarina that does have a web site and the same name.
Approximately Two Blocks Away:
+ Prominade, which is across the street from the Doral Torres, so you would have one extra street to cross. (41) 322-4341
+ Lizon, which is also across the street from the Doral Torres. [http://www.lizon.com.br]http://www.lizon.com.br
Around 5 blocks away there are:
+ San Juan Marcassa (slightly further than the Victoria Villa)
+ Centro Europeu (about 1/2 block further yet)
There are a lot of inns (pousadas) and one hotel on the island, principally localized at Brasília, at Praia do Farol, close to the old Fort and in Encantadas. The style of the pousadas is rustic, they are built of wood.
