Location really is key here. The hotel is close to the beach and to the airport and has really competitive prices. However, the place could really use some renewals, which makes choosing a room there a real hit-or-miss. We were meant to stay at a bigger room that included access to a balcony. The problem was that the room smelled bad and was kind of depressing, so we asked to change. The new one was in a difference price range (it was a standard room, with no balcony), but we had no discount. It was marginally better than the other, but we decided to stay.

The staff was friendly and the pool and the bar are really cool, but the overall experience was really not the best.

All rooms are not created equal at the Hotel Aconchego. The bed and bathroom in the standard room are a disappointment. Although the room was very clean, it was shabby and depressing. Do not book a standard room! Otherwise this is a very pleasant hotel with a nice pool and bar - very close to the beach. Very accommodating staff. Decent breakfast included for all guests. Very happy we were able to switch to a better room.

This so called hotel looks like a local pousada indeed. The place was built up along the years so you will find very different rooms around the whole building. Unfortunately, some rooms are in bad shape while others are okay. Breakfast is good (if not too busy) and restaurant is also okay. Staff is attentive and very polite.

There are so many disappointing/awful things about this hotel that I am almost at a loss as to where I should start. I will try and give everyone a complete and precise list of the flaws:

The bed:
- Lumpy and Uneven, offering the unique experience of sleeping at an angle to the customer.
- The sheets and mattress contained several mysterious stains.
- The queen bed is actually two single beds pushed together with queen sized sheets fixed over them...a large, hard wooden division runs up the middle of the beds.

The room:
- The musty smell overwhelms you once you first enter the room. If you have allergies, this hotel is a death trap. If you don't have allergies, it just smells awful.
- As other have mentioned, it is, indeed, noisy because of the hotel's layout. Guests and staff can be easily heard all hours of the day and night.
- Dingy rooms. This part is a bit harder to explain. Although the maids do give a perfunctory pass through daily, the rooms have an engrained filth that will never come out. The best example I can give you is to imagine a used child's stroller. No matter what you do to the stroller (scrub it vigorously with a cleaning agent, etc.), after a few years of use, some stains and dirt will just never come out. These rooms are similar. Due to past neglect, they are permanently dingy.
- The A/C. The room does have A/C and it works well. The only problem is it is permanently pointed to the bed. I love A/C and it is absolutely essential in Recife, but, for anyone who is very familiar with A/C, they will know that having it blowing directly on you all night is not great. You may wake up with a stuffed nose, etc.

The restroom:
- The shower is one of the cheapest electric showers available in Brazil. Settings are summer, winter and off. The problem with this type of shower is that its' warm setting (winter) actually shoots out cold and warm water, rather than mixing them together beforehand. This results in an outer circle of lukewarm water with a cold water center. Some people who come from colder climates might not mind as much. For me, 70 degree weather (which is about avg in winter in Recife) is pleasant but not warm enough that I am willing to take a cold shower. It also has very weak water pressure.
- The shower head is disgusting. I would assume it has never been cleaned. Should you find yourself in this forsaken place, don't look to closely.
- The water is disgusting. The water has an off-color, smells bad and tastes awful. Again, I would assume that their water storage has never been cleaned. This also makes brushing your teeth an unpleasant chore.
- The bathroom is cramped, similar to a narrow corridor. How cramped? Well, I am 5'10" and when I sat on the toilet my knees would hit the opposite wall. Not comfortable.
- The purported amenities are small, cheap bars of generic hotel soap. No shampoo, so be prepared if you plan on washing your hair.

The insects:
- There are many mosquitoes in Recife. The bathroom window does not actually close, it only has wooden shutters which are permanently open to the outside. The result? Mosquitoes will enter your room all night. A/C and closing the bathroom door will help, but since nothing in the hotel really closes without leaving some gaps, you will still have to contend with mosquitoes in your room.
- Bed bugs...yes, they have those as well.
- Cockroaches. During the last night of my stay, 5 different cockroaches scuttled under my door and into my room while I was watching TV. I managed to smash them and get them all out with the aid of a sneaker, but, this was a disturbing trend. In the end, I stuffed a towel into the gap under the door, much like a college student trying to hide the smell of pot. The result? I awoke at 5am to the sound of cockroaches scuffling along just above my head on the headboard. This did not sit well with me. Oh yes, they are also the flying kind...and they are huge.

The "restaurant":
- Sun-cured beef is very popular in Recife. Because of the process, it has a flavor very similar to slightly rotting, salted beef. I personally find it to be disgusting, but other people love it. Why am I bringing this up? Virtually any protein you order seems to be made on the same grill/griddle as the "Carne de Sol" and they don't seem to clean it in between different proteins. So, get ready for everything tasting like Carne de Sol. If you like the stuff, perhaps you are thinking "great"! If you don't like it however...ugh. Other highlights: rotten lettuce in my sandwich, mystery mush under my fries, etc.
- Service is lazy, but friendly.

OK, that is everything I can think of at the moment. I am sure there is more, but this gives you a good idea. Safe travels!

As I mentioned before in other reviews .... You really do only get what you pay for most of the time but as we all do now and again we fall for the pictures that are shown believing we are going to get the deal of a lifetime !

This is definitely not one of these places , it's bad ... So bad that we booked 2 days and left after 1 day!

The rooms my friend and I had where tiny , the toilet doors wouldn't go all the way back as the bathroom was too small , cracked tiles everywhere , dead beetles behind the door and final straw the air con rattled all night !!

The only reason it gets 2 stars is that the main areas and pool where nice and the staff weren't bad !!

We booked this hotel for World Cup, which was booked at a 280% mark up (yes I did the math). I was expecting a mark up for the World Cup, so this I wasn't really surprised by. What I did realize though, is that this is the philosophy of management here. FIFA recommended that fans use the metro to get to the arena. There is a metro stop about a mile and a half from this hotel, so shouldn't be a problem getting to the metro on game day. The hotel reception worked a deal out with the taxis to only offer rides straight to the stadium, at a "good price" of 300 Reais round trip. The cabs have meters and this is clearly way more expensive than if the meter was on. Furthermore, the USA vs Germany game had 3" of rain and flooded much of Recife making the trip by cab, almost 2 hours, instead of the 1hr metro ride. The hotel was encouraging the cab ride all the way to the stadium (all the way is actually 3km from the stadium, where a bus takes you the rest of the way) by claiming the cabs wouldn't make the short and cheaper trip to the metro (only 1.5 miles away). By taking advantage of their guests in a such a way (my wife was pregnant (22 weeks)) and like I said it rained 3" in about 4 hours; I wouldn't recommend anyone stay here or trust the management to have your best interests on their mind.

Rude staff, no English speaking, we stay there one week for a friend's wedding and we where eleven people. Me and my boyfriend asked the first day to the hotel manager to delate the reservation for the last night. He told us no problem but at the check-out the guy at the reception didn't give us the receipt. When I asked it, we discover that we payd all and the give us a voucher to spend there in one year. Unfortunatly we live in the other side of the world and If we knew it before we could have spent it there at the restaurant...we already payd for restaurant and laundry because nobody told us about this voucher...we discussed for long time with the hotel manager but we lost our money. It was so uncorrect, considering that we stay there one week in eleven people.
Nice hotel, very basic and small rooms. International breakfast. Close to the beach.

I have been in Recife several times now and the city has clearly got a problem with its hotel capacity. It is very difficult to find a good hotel for an affordable price in this city. Keeping this in mind,t he Hotel Aconchego is a good option in Recife. It is relatively near the airport (taxi 12 reais) and near the beach. Staff is very friendly ans speaks English. The 10 Reais for a better room are worth it because the cheap rooms are in front of the bar/swimming pool area and there are very noisy people early in the morning and late at night.
There were several things I didn't like, but like I said, it's not like you have too many decent options in Recife under US$ 100, so I will probably go back:
Wifi only in swimming pool area. It is free, but forget privacy or silence around you.
Rooms are in need of refurbishment! Very noisy airco, poor bathroom.
Breakfast... could be better!! Not too many options.

We stayed at the Hotel Aconchego in Recife for one night with our children. We chose it because it seemed to be relatively close to the airport and not too expensive. Another plus for us was that they have rooms that fit in five beds (even though with not much space for anything else), so you can travel with up to three children. And because they (at least so we thought) included the transfer.

What upset us is that although we had asked them in our reservation for transfer airport – hotel – airport, they never pointed out clearly to us that only the transfer to the hotel was included in the price, not also the one from the hotel to the airport. So the relatively cheap hotel turned out to be quite expensive when we were asked to pay 50 Reais extra for the 10-minute-drive from the hotel to the airport, one way. We were told we had to pay when we were already back at the airport. We used for this drive the same company that had picked us up at the airport. I repeat, neither the hotel nor the transport company told us in advance that the transfer to the airport had to be paid for extra. We even mentioned to two employees of the transport company while they were picking us up that we would like to be driven back to the airport the next day and that this was included in the hotel price, and they did not correct us (I am sure they knew but were careful not to tell us so we would not go with any other – cheaper - company or driver).

The hotel did mention in one of their confirmation e-mails that our “transfer in” was scheduled, but never explained what exactly that meant, neither did they make clear to us that the transfer from the hotel to the airport had to be organized and paid for extra.

As for the hotel, it is as described in the other reviews: noisy as every room is close to the central patio, which has a pool in the middle and a 24h restaurant/ bar in the space surrounding the pool. Not really a pool to swim in, more to contemplate, as it is not very large and extremely close to the tables and chairs of the restaurant and to the rooms.

The rooms have no views to the street but to the patio or to narrow hallways and walls. We had an “apartamento tipo A” room, in theory the best they have. In the room illumination was dim. There was a TV set, air conditioning and a safe. The bath room was functional but we found a big cockroach in it.

The space between the street and the hotel entrance was packed with parked cars, not empty as in their web page photo. Traffic around the hotel was intense.

The beach Praia da Boa Viagem is about a ten minute walk away.

As for the quality of food, we only had dinner there (not breakfast) as we had to leave early. The dinner was ok, with nice presentation but it looked better than it tasted – it tasted a little ready-cooked (like the ready to use sauces you can buy in the supermarket), not really homemade and not as if it had top quality ingredients. It was not cheap either.

In general we think the hotels in Recife are overpriced. It is the same with this one: even though it is one of the cheaper ones, the price-quality-relationship is bad. Also make sure to organize your transfer back to the airport; the price of the company they work with might not be the best one.

Aconchego Hotel is located in a very pleasant area of Recife. It is in a short distance from the city airport and very close to the most famous local beach. The hotel however, needs some renewal. The hotel room I've been was quiet and small. Despite the fact that it had a window, no natural light or ventilation could reach the space. WIFI worked just fine.
