Lovely stay at this dreamy hotel
The hotel grounds and the palace interior were beautiful. Almost felt like royalty! Our garden view room (upgraded for free from city view) was beautiful. The included breakfast was lovely, with lots of choices, and the restaurant was gorgeous. Service was perfect. The location of the hotel was close to Belem, in a nice residential type area. Fun to walk around, lots of cafes and restaurants. A bit of a hike from the downtown core, but Ubers are very economical and efficient. If you have a car, I recommend not paying for hotel parking as there is an abundance of free street parking. During our stay the weather was gloomy, a bit cloudy and drizzly. We enjoyed the indoor pool, jacuzzi and turkish bath during this weather. Oh, and the best part was that we were allowed to keep our room until 3pm (our flight was at 6pm), so that was awesome. The only complaint I would have is that the outdoor pool's water was a disturbing shade of green. For such a beautiful property, they should really scrub the algae off the bottom and sides and try for some nice, clean-looking water! All in all, our stay was terrific and I would love to return one day.
