A Great Walker's Hotel

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 10 Sept 2012
From this hotel you can walk to everywhere in Recife Antigua, the Casa da Cultura, the 13 de Mayo Park and a great mall in Boa Vista. The hotel staff is friendly, as is everyone in Brazil. The rooms are comfortable. The AC and WiFi worked perfectly. I could not figure out the hot water even after it was explained to me at check-in. Make sure you get the staff to demonstrate the hot water with proof that it is working ( it comes out of the shower). I am sure they would be happy to do so. The breakfast is pretty typical cafe da manana (spelling) for Brazil. I had no trouble getting a taxi to the airport at 4AM. If you are staying here to visit Recife Antigua, go during the middle of the week, lots of things are closed on Sunday and Monday. I would definitely stay here again instead of Boa Viagem or some tourist beach area of Recife. The hotel and the area have a lot more character, Boa Viagem could be any beach city in the world. Recife Plaza Hotel is a view of the real Recife.

Reviewed 11 September 2011

I don't quite agree with the very negative reviews on this hotel. Everything in this old and shabby hotel is cranky, but a few things compensate: it is very clean, located near city centre (in a city with terrible traffic this can save you a hour in the peak hour), It has a good wifi system, an excellent breakfast, and a small swimming poor with a fantastic view in the top floor. It may have been a good hotel in the past. Today it badly needs maintenance... And they are doing it, but starting by the most urgent. Shower didn't work one day, I reported it and was fixed that same day. I've stayed in better hotels where things simply don't get fixed. Location: near city centre but not a place to walk at night and very few restaurants in the area. Conclusion: this is definitely not a hotel to stay for tourism, but if you only go to sleep and do business, I would recommend it and I would go back. Recife doesn't have too many good options in hotels, unless you go to Olinda or Boa Viagem, so all things considered this is probably a good choice. Value for money.

Room tip: See room and check everything before you settle down in a room!!

My partner and I stayed at this hotel for two nigths at 145 Reias per night (regular double bed room) - booked on internet via booking.com and much fairer price than the prices anounced in the reception of the hotel

Recife Plaza Hotel must once have been a hotel with real grandeur. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. There is a restaurant, polyvalent rooms and a tennis court and swimming pool on the roof. But like most buildings in the old center of recife the hotel sadly lost its grandeur. The outside of the building as well as the swimming and tennis faciities suffer from old age and are not inviting at all, the rooms begging for restauration.

Nevertheless, the hotel and its rooms were very clean and the staff very friendly and helpfull. In addition the hotel has a unique location: it is one of the only hotels (we could find) near the old city center. Therefore we found this hotel charming and a good value for money.

Other positive points: good view over old recife from the rooftop, non-noisy air-conditioning, free car-parking.
Negative: very few restaurants in the direct neighbourhood, located in a poorer (although not threathening) neighbourhood
