Not a nice area to be, but seems that Fortaleza needs a lot of improvement for tourist and safe areas. The hotel is a 2 area, with one across the street. The room is very small with a small Tv and mini bar. The bathroom is super small, hard to close the door without getting into the shower. The AC worked great but the linens are cheap and the towels which you can not get more than 2 are thin and very used. The breakfast is average and if late be ready to wait for 20 min for more food. It seems the hotel is not ready to accommodate a full occupancy. No one speaks Spanish or English and the costumer service is poor. There were always 3 policeman outside the hotel. I did not like fortaleza at all, is dirty, no trash garbage can on the streets, there cars don't care about the pedestrians and not much security at all. Not sure how the Brasilian tourist association allows to be posted with 3 starts, in my country this is a 1 start or better say a Motel for backpacking trips.

The hotel is in two buildings. Breakfast is in one of the them (not the main reception building). We started in a room right on the road, which is never quiet and aircon not working and no wifi. We asked for a change and got a great room in the main building with aircon, wifi and away from the road....made our stay so much better and was no hassle sorting this. Breakfast was great with a lady cooking crepes and eggs. Two streets away "ladies of the night" patrol the street corners so not the most pleasant of neighbourhoods after dark. 3minutes to beach and numerous restaurants. didn't test pool but looked inviting. I would stay here again but only for a good room.

Cool place - nice staff which some of it do know english. Great location and breakfast. However...the wifi didn't work so good all the time and the rooms was a little small. The toilets worked bad, but...maybe it was only the specific room's problem.

Booked this place for the World Cup December last year for 17 nights. Not much around and what was available they wanted crazy prices. We knew it was going to be not what we are used to but really the choice was not there at the time. Seems like when you arrive everyone is put in the smallest room imaginable. We asked to be moved straight away as we are spending so many nights there and that is not suitable, which they did. The accommodation is very standard although clean. More like a good 2 star. The Position good with Restaurants and beach all around the corner. All rooms have a small fridge and air conditioning, which was needed. Only Wilton and the manager Bianca ( both are very helpful staff) speak English so if they are not working be prepared for a struggle. Breakfast was every day was hit or miss. Most mornings out of fruit or milk, ham or cheese. If you wait long enough they do top it up, so if you have the time, it can be OK. They do cook eggs & on letters so another plus. Wouldn't stay there again but would be OK for people on a budget.

Hello David. How are you and your wife doing? I feel very sorry we couldn't please you more than that. I'm working on hiring more bilingual staff. I'm working here since january of this year, after a 20 years manager that went working in another hotel. I've made a lot of changes beginning with the building structure that was left aside those past years, when i arrived actually they didn't even have bilingual staff. that was my priority since then and now we have Wilton and i during the day, and Israel at night but I still working on that. About the room sizes, I decided to publish the sizes at the web sites and agencies so the guests don't be surprised when they arrive. We have a DBL 13m², a TPL 16m² and a QPL 20m². The pictures of the rooms are updated ate the web sites so people can have an idea of what they can wait for. I'm also working on the breakfast team and making the necessary changes to make the breakfast replacement work well. As i told you, the basic wage in brazil is not enough for people to get qualified, most people don't have enought education and the turnover is pretty high, so when i think i almost have my team complete, somenoe is offered 50 reais more and they leave the hotel not thinking about getting qualified, getting experience and making a carrer here. I'm trying to change this culture at the hotel, but i need time for that. I hope you understand, is not only here, is general. We have this great triumph to be in a nice place at this historic neighbourhood, and we started this new kind of breakfast variation. Now i'm trying to change all the rest, but i can assure you the next time, even if you don't stay with us, come visit us and see the changes we're making. It was a pleasure to have you both here and we are glad for your feedback. Thank you very much and hope to hear from you soon. Regards, Bianca Bento General Manager

Pros: price (good value for money), location (one block from the beach), an amazing local food restaurant Brazão just round the corner Cons: worn-off room equipment and facilities, reception area can get rather busy in the morning as there is only one staff. Overall it´s a solid 2-star hotel. Definitely do not expect any thrills.
