“Very Good!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2011

This hotel is in front of the Boa Viagem Beach and have a beautiful view of beach. The breakfast is delicious. The hotel is old, but they were renovating the building.

The rooms are small, sparce, and lacking in personality. The is no hot water nor any tempature control in the room. I did not even have an emergency evacuation plan on the door. They claim to have a pool which is really a small pond and a business center which is really an oversized bathroom with a slow internet connection for which you pay by the minute. I should have spent a few dollars more and stayed at the Recife Palace Hotel three (3) blocks down the beach.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 October 2008

Had been to Rio and Iguassu and was looking forward to the spending the last 10days of the holiday on the beach - this hotel is right on the beach so it didnt disappoint with location. It is quite central to everything.
We were met at the reception by Gus who immediately made us feel welcome.
The hotel itself met all expectations - rooms were cleaned and towels provided daily, the pool area, although small, was clean. The restaurant and bar staff were helpful and efficient and there was access to the internet in the business centre.
The buffet style breakfast and evening meal were good with lots of choice.
All in all the hotel was good and we had a great stay, but a massive thanks to Gus and Hakel who made us feel like we belonged....

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2006

I have to take a somewhat contrary view from that of the previous reviewer (entry dated Aug. 2, 2005, from Atlanta). Yes, the International Palace is in bad need of a renovation, with our room (at least) appearing to date from the late 70's to early 80's. However, everything worked perfectly, and although place was not modern or terribly chic, it met our needs very adequately. As it happens, I was accompanying my wife on her business trip, so she had business needs while I had leisure interests. Both of us have been completely satisfied here. I speak Portuguese well enough that I can communicate with hotel staff in general, and those here (I write this from the hotel during our stay) have been excellent. When we couldn't figure out how to connect to the internet (the rooms have cable connections at no charge), the hotel's IT guy was at our door in 10 minutes. It turns out the problem was with our equipment, and he lent us what we needed (again, no charge) to get us online.

The front desk staff have answered all our questions, and the whole staff have been polite, accommodating and friendly.

As for the breakfast, we have travelled extensively in Brasil and find that this hotel's offering has been among the best we've had. In addition to the standard ham, cheese, breads, yogurt, fruit, cereal, cakes and coffee, the International Palace offers eggs, cooked meats, and a station where foods typical of the Northeast are prepared in front of you. All together, excellent fare, and the hotel employs an outstanding baker. I could live on their cornmeal cake.

As mentioned above, the hotel does need a multi-million dollar face lift, beginning with the elevators and continuing into the guest rooms. It's not that the facilities are inadequate or in bad repair, rather they just need updating and freshening. The hotel's prime location (no more than 100 feet to the beautiful Boa Viagem beach) makes it a natural draw for tourists. A substantial investment would make this a truly outstanding hotel, but the friendly staff, excellent breakfast, terrific location and value tariff (we're paying R$130 in the off season) make this worthy of consideration.

Advertised as a four star property on most websites. Three at best, some of the rooms that I saw were 2 star. Good location, right on beach, near large shopping mall. Hotel staff good, except front desk personnel..snooty, and WHY I can't imagine. Breakfast adequate. This establishment is mostly used by Brazilians on business and is sorely lacking in services for tourists.
