Guanabara Palace Hotel

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 28, 2005

A new and well-maintained hotel in the downtown area. Offers discounts for holidays/ weekends. Value is great, but location is not - close by lives an army of homeless people, and further down Ave Vargas is desolate. However, hotel is close to the sights in the Centro, offers great service and accomodations for about US$50 per night on weekends. Taxi to Ipanema is about R$20, Copacabana R$15.

Unique Quality: Outstanding accomodations and service for the price. Buffet is OK for breakfast (included in the price) - sausage, eggs, cold cuts. Buffet for dinner is not a great value, and towards the nights its items are not entirely fresh. However, if you order a la carte, food quality (and prices) are great.

Wireless internet is NOT included. You have to buy a card to use it (R$10 for 1 hr). On Friday when I checked in it did not work.

Uruguayana metro station is two blocks away along Ave Vargas - not a great walk, but felt safe during the day.

Directions: Centro,
