for 250 US dollars per night you might expect a view of something other than a concrete wall. You might expect a shower with a shower head. You might expect the bathroom ceiling not to leak water all over you from the bathroom in the room above. you might expect a free bottle of water. you might expect not to be in a dark dank basement. You might expect free internet. But sadly not.
If you have no other option but to stay here, you will probably get an OK nights sleep. breakfast is fine. staff are OK. But don't expect anything more than that.
When i complained about the leak in my room they did at least move me to a room above ground which was a bit better.
I stayed there for 3 days, and my experience was terrible. I found several cockroachs, really big ones, the ones that can fly in the shower. I complained to the lobby, but they didnt care and sent someone several hours after I talked to them. The towels I received contained really long curly hair which was definitely not mine.
The TV was 14' inches , which was ridiculous. Power output was really low also. For the price I paid, I totally do not recommend it.
The hotel is not bed, but surely the publicity did its job.
It is actually a two stars hotel, more like a hostel.
If you are used to this kind of structure you will have no problem staying in there.
However, by the advertisement i expected a little bit more.
The rooms are ok, they have large bathroom and hot water. There is air conditioner and a frigo, a small TV as well. I stayed in a three bed dorm and it was ok, not delightful, but ok.
There were some inconvenients like infiltrations, poor cleaning and the place would be better if they runned a refurniture.
The wifi was charged R$12 each day and simply didnt work. I was requested the login and password everytime i tried to load anything - i gues it was a software problem.
The breakfast was poor, not worth at all.
Maybe it is possible to find other hotel more convenient. If you are in trouble to find any place else, this one would suit you in this case without great worries,
My husband and me went to Brasília (May 2010) and decided stay at Monumental Bittar. The room was old, the paper wall was falling and the safe was broken. I called to front desk and asked for help but, nobody came. We tried to use internet but it didn't work. Finaly, I found lots of holes in my sheet...
