Rooms are plain, extremely plain, but very clean
The TV is hanging from the ceiling
Shower door wouldn't close
There are switches in the nightstand to turn off lights --- I really hate those :)
Check in Experience:
The reservation price included breakfast. I checked in at 9am and realized I was checking out very early at 4am, so as I was hungry I asked if I could have breakfast that day as I would miss breakfast on my checkout day.
I thought it was a fair request; I had flown since 3am and was hungry. The front desk attendant said no and that it wasn’t possible. I was like, OK and proceeded to ask where the closest bakery was. Another front desk attendant overheard this and went to the mager who approved my request as I wasn't asking for anything for free, basically replacing breakfast from one day to another.
My advice it to ask for a supervisor, be professional in how you ask your request, but don't take what the front desk attendant says as a final answer. Most of them are not trained in Customer Service.
Belem Hotel Advice:
Crowne Plaza is close by. I encourage anyone wanting to stay in this neighborhood to compare there two hotels. Then, make a decision on the best one for you.
Good luck in your hotel search in Belem do Para!

This is a reasonably priced small hotel in the old part of Belem. If you're looking for a luxurious stay, this is not the place. The hotel is in a large old building that has been restored. No elevators. Beds are OK. We stayed here twice in 2 different rooms, both of them large with high ceilings (nice in this heat!). There are some interesting wood artifacts placed in various spots. Hotel staff is wonderful and helpful and always pleasant, even when we had to leave at 2 a.m. to catch our plane. Breakfast is included, it's simple but adequate. Do try some of the exotic juices, usually served unsweetened. Sugar and sweetener are on the table.
