“Best hotel in the city”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 March 2012

I stayed only one night in the hotel while on business in Belo. The service was nice and my room was comfortable. The breakfast was quite good. I enjoyed the location because it is close to the supermarket across the street, but the area is not very good. It is on a very busy road, far from the Confins airport and far from UFMG. The fitness center was compact but excellent and included lots of modern equipment, steam room, and pool. I did not notice any water provided. I did have a few small itchy spots the next day. I'm not sure if they were from bug bites or the detergent used on the sheets. Everything in my room was clean and quiet. The view from the 18th floor was impressive.

Room Tip: 1836 is a corner room. The elevators are slow, but there are many of them.

The Hotel which claims to be a 5 Star is anything but. My room which overlooked the highway, was dark despite the 2 windows. The closets were old, misty and the hangers were those you cannot take off the rack. The safe was the size of a small box and was broken.
The bathroom lights were awful and the amenities, hotel brand, simply atrocious.

The only positive comment I have is about the staff who is delightful, courteous and very helpful. The gym is decent- not great but open 24hrs.

Room Tip: The higher floor the better.

Maybe a 3.5 or 4 star premise, nice hotel but just the wrong location. The shopping across the street is quite ok though, that's a plus.

Dear Guest,

First, we appreciate your comment and your considerations. They help us improve our services and products continuously.

We've just passed a major revitalization: the hotel has gained a new facade and new spaces for events. The rooms are more comfortable and modern as well and our health center is shiny new!

In Belo Horizonte, we are the closest to the Confins Airport, 7 km from the center of BH and 9 km from Savassi region. In addition, we are strategically located on the way to the historic cities of Minas Gerais, Inhotim museum, and to natural attractions such as caves and the Serra do Cipo.

We look forward to welcome you again soon so you can check the changes we made from comments like yours.


Kind regards,
Rebecca Freitas.

Rooms with filthy and stinking pilllows and noisy air conditioning. For breakfast on the Mezzanine floor, there is so little space between tables that you may wonder how you can go from the buffet back to your table. Room service is of low quality and bathroom amenities very poor. As for the bar I have seen better ones on the street.

First, by EU and North American standards its not a five star hotel. None the less what is most important is the staff believes it is and largely strives to live up to it. Upon arriving the bell staff was immediately available and the check in was quick. The young man behind the counter spoke English, and was professional. The room, a lower class of room had an LCD television, and a comfortable bed with nice linnens. The furnishing was older, but clean. The shower was large, with great pressure and plenty of hot water. Perhaps in more deluxe rooms there is more chic furnishings but that was not important to me. The breakfast was great. Period. The lobby bar needs updating. Just a part of the Resturaunt with darker tables. What this hotel is known for is events, and has a good reputation locally for that. The room rate was approx. $150US, which was ok for a reasonable guarantee of quality after a long two weeks in rural Minas.

I stayed at this Hotel for 4 days while I was on Business in Belo. I choose the this hotel because of the location close to the airport and close to Centro. Also there is a mall across the the street from this Hotel, so I would have different food options.

The Receptionist and most of the staff spoke English

I dont have anything bad to say about the hotel it is just a little dated and for the room rate there are better options in Savassi.

Room Tip: the internet can be paid for by the hour or by the day. I chose the daily option. The wireless por...
