Profile: Centro Historico

Downtown Porto Alegre is the home of many of the city’s most beautiful historical buildings. This is the Gaucho capital of the country, and a wander around its downtown provides a fascinating view of the city’s past. Stop by the Praça da Matriz, or “Matrix Square”, which dates from the 18th century, and then stroll on to the modern palace and the beautiful Metropolitan Cathedral.

The Central Market is housed in an impressive 19th-century neoclassical building, and is a great spot to shop for a one-of-a-kind souvenir and sample some of its renowned tropical ice cream.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Portaria fechada. Um absurdo.

    Vou querer reembolso se debitar meu cartão. Minha filha chegou à meia noite devido a atrasos em voos e o hotel estava fechado. Teve de sair procurando hotel na madrugada para poder dormir. Um absurdo. Portaria 24 horas, está escrito na reserva. NÃO podiam fechar sem avisar.

    Sem frigobar e sem estacionamento grátis

    O hotel é razoável, mas no Google dizia que tinha frigobar e estacionamento grátis. Quando cheguei lá além de o quarto não ter frigobar, não possuia estacionamento grátis, ele precisa ser pago separadamente, então era um custo que eu não estava planejando.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Recepção do Hotel tem cheiro de mofo. Para quem é alérgico, um grande perigo. Achei teia de aranha no lustre do quarto. Banheiro apertado, quase não coube nele.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Tem que ser muito barato pra valer a pena

    Hotel muito simples, baixo conforto, banheiro horrível, limpeza abaixo, não tem serviço de quarto, wi-fi muito ruim, os pontos fortes são café da manhã e preço

    Algo caro para lo que ofrece

    La calidad de la habitación es muy poca. No tuvimos señal wi-fi en ningún momento. No arreglaron las camas, ni limpiaron la habitación. La atención fue amable.

    Buena Estadia

    El hotel tiene muy buena ubicación, para poder movilizarse tanto para el terminal rodoviario y aeropuerto. El desayuno es tipo buffet, muy completo.
