Comfort Porto Alegre3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
A hotel according to its price. Simple, clean, good breakfast (nothing special), friendly staff. External room service (seems like they have a deal with a restaurant and it works), varied options for mini bar's snacks and some pillow options. Regular price for an ok hotel.
The hotel is located in a okay area for the day, however it is recommended not to go outside at night. The rooms were clean, the beds very comfortable, and the room was well lite. The bathrooms are small and clean, however there is little to no hot water when you shower. The gym has two treadmills and a weight machine, however one treadmill was broken. There is a AM/PM next door to the hotel so you can get water and snacks. Overall, for the price it was okay.
The Comfort Porto Alegre was the hotel we stayed at our first and last night while in Brazil. Nice room, helpful staff, great breakfast and central location in the city. There was a question on our bill regarding the online reservation price and what they wanted to charge when we showed up. Don't know if it was a mis-understanding with our host, being that we did not know Portuguese.
Your view on this hotel will depend entirely on your expectations. It provides the basics but little more. Do all you can to avoid rooms facing the main road as the relentless noise of the traffic and the poor sound insulation may make it hard to sleep. This was the major negative factor for me, since if you can't get a decent nights sleep, then that defeats the whole purpose. The air con was also noisy. The breakfast, which was included in our rate, wasn't very satisfying.
I stayed in this hotel in November 2014 and all I can say is that the staff are very nice especially Ricardo at the front desk. Guilherme, the maintenance guy was also very helpful and nice with my request about the internet connection. This is a very good value hotel! RA
Stayed here during the World Cup, where we attended the Argentina v Nigeria game. The standout of this hotel was the staff who bravely communicated with us in English, going out of their way to help. The location is right on a busy road that is very noisy during the night, albeit it is a consistent noise that you can tune out. The area immediately surrounding the hotel felt safe and it is just around the corner from a street populated with several restaurants, many carrying English menus. The rooms themselves are quite old / tired, but they were clean.
Staying in Comfort Inn for World Master Athletics. Really comfortable (pardon the pun) but not luxurious. Good value for what your paying. Clean room. Good extra length comfortable bed. Nice hot shower, good enough bathroom. Fridge, but no kettle or hair dryer. Breakfast was really good. Fast selection, even hot food and devine coffee. Hotel was full and no surprice, I can recommend. Friendly staff and reception.
Looking for some a stay in Porto Alegre ? That's an good option, affordable, clean, tidy, international breakfast nearby city center, city tour line "Linha turismo", good bars and nightlife at Lima e silva street. To mention an item to improve I should suggest more attention in reservation dept. once we've warned by email 1 week before that we'd should come before the midday and main desk when we arrived had no information about it.
The last time was my third in this hotel, and so far the best. I also came to appreciate it more after a subsequent stay in another city in a big "business hotel" which although more expensive was actually worse than Comfort. What I most appreciated was the layout of the room, and the comfortable long desk alongside the entire one wall of the room, electrical outlets everywhere within easy reach, and the fridge. In my view, any room that has me crawling under desks, moving beds, and unplugging lamps to make sure that 2 or three of my electronic gizmos are charging, is below standard. My room in Comfort had 2 outlets just above the desk, and two more free ones at either side of the bed. So I could have the clock radio AND my iPhone plugged in! As on most of my stays I spend a lot of time on my computer, the comfort of the chair and desk was much appreciated. The fridge kept my supply of water bottles, so I could work in the evenings getting ready for the next day without frustration. On one occasion I had room service dinner - food was mediocre, but service very nice and helpful. The check-in /out desk could use more staff, and more staff who speak English. This time my check-out was slow, and even though several staff were milling around, it was still handled just by one person. My previous time a year ago, I had a serious misunderstanding with a check-in clerk who did not speak any English, and it didn't help that I arrived late, and could not muster any Portuguese. However, this time it was more or less OK. On my last morning, the light went out in the bathroom, but as it had a window, and I was in a hurry, I did not complain. Being so central, it is a noisy place. The air conditioning unit is very noisy too - but big improvement on the one they had three years ago. Come prepared - bring ear plugs. I did this time, and slept very well. Also, I do not agree with another traveller who said that there were no restaurants around, the truth is quite the opposite! If you cross the big street, Loureiro da Silva, and turn left, there are plenty of restaurants and little shops in the neighbourhood. I found a supermarket within easy walking distance, where you can buy snacks, water, even small (or regular size!) bottles of excellent Brazilian wine. The internet is free, and wireless. Breakfast was fine - seemed pretty standard.
good breakfast, clean and friendly staff. If you want to stay for one or two days just for business it's ok otherwise ist's not confortable enough, specially the bed and some noisy that comes from the street. silvia brazil
