Sheraton and Holiday Inn: International chain hotels

Sheraton Porto Alegre Hotel and Holiday Inn are two great hotels to stay in Porto Alegre.
They are both located in very pleasant neighborhoods and close to restaurantes and shopping malls (Sheraton is connected to a shopping mall).
The distance from the city airport is about 10 to 15 minutes driving.

Partheneon Apartment hotels: A taste of upper middle class and excellent value

There are two of them, I stayed at the Manhattan Apartment Hotels, the other one which is also nearby is the Beverly Hills.. i wonder why they take on north american names rather than their own indigenous names.
This is an excellent value .. very pleasantly situated near the parque and many lovely restaurants and a place to walk around, no sense of poverty here.
sitting room, kitchenette, large bedroom and a marble tiled bathroom. reminded me very much of the quality offered in melbourne, australia. i had a room in the 11th floor with a good view of the town and the hills beyond

helpful staff. internet in house. gym. pool and many other amenities.
i highly recommend this. and it would be to this place that i return if i come back to porto alegre.

Hotel Plaza Porto Alegre: If you have to stay Downtown

They gave me a room on the 12th floor with excellent views over the river, the bay. We are not looking for excellence in accomodations here, adequate, convenient and safe. 150 R about 45 usd including breakfast. The dinner on your first night is on the house, which was nothing more than mediocre. like food cooked in a hurry by a person not so interested whether or not you liked it. The hotel itself is nondescriptive except for its cavernous entrance room, felt like a chain hotel from the midwest of the united states, not much charm. If the people at the desk were not speaking portuguese it would have been difficult for you to know which country you were in just by the hotel.

security boxes at the front office, where it is recommended that you leave your valuables.
The downtown location, which i recommend for just one night to feel the town.
just outside the hotel there is a small park with attractive palm trees. but i dont advise you to walk along it, for the stench of the urine and the smell of the homeless people who sleep the nights there.
Take them some food or drinks and wish them a good day. that is all you can do as a visitor to this fair city.

Porto Alegre has many hotels...

Porto Alegre has many hotels what i never used of course,but in the center we have two plazas(Porto Alegre Plaza and Porto Alegre New Plaza Sao Raphael)and some more examples of regular hotels,nothing special(plaza is 5 stars..).
But,in the montain areas,we have hotels that make you feel in a tale,they are so special you don't want to make your check out..this is an example,in GRAMADO..

MAKES YOU FEEL IN A FAIRY TALE OR IN A TYPICAL GERMAN HOUSE,AT LEAST..

Novotel (Accor hotels): Novotel (Accor hotels)

R135.00/night

Set in the heart of an upscale residential nieghborhood high on a hill overlooking the city. Has breakfast, lunch and dinner buffets which were sparce but pretty good non the less. The entire hotel just completed a renovation so all the rooms were like brand new and very comfortable. Nice bar area with lounge, decent exercise room and a pool w/cabana bar that was closed due to it being winter. Also has conference facilities and internet access was a breeze from the room.

not a Hotel

this is neither a Hotel nor a Lodging place, although some people do stay over night even for weeks and month.
It's a Hospital where I worked and taught young nurses. Not all the time, mostly as Guest Tutor once a week,lodging and food was provided.
I worked in Boa Vista do Herval, ca 100km from Porto Alegre as a Community Nurse. the nearest Practioner was 30km away and when push came to shuff, I was on me own.
I had signed up with an german Volunteer Service, trying to breach some gaps, where the so called 3th world countries struggle to make ends meet.
Many of my collegues worked in the Field, meaning Countryside. So did I and with 3 others, we surveyed an area of about 3000sq km..that's right..social worker, technichan of agriculture, nurse.
the first tried to identify the problems..the sec.surveyed the mono culture in the area..and I tried to fix what ever there was broken :-))
our Counterparts always close at our side, learning the trade and leading it when we where gone. I grew up very fast..no time for 'the wild'sixties and early seventies, but sure we also had our fun
