“The Lobby is nice, but the rooms and service...........”
Reviewed 16 July 2008

My wife and I had planned to stay there for four nights but we escaped after the second one. The place was already advertising as a Best Western hotel. The rooms had cracks, the shower was awful, as you can see on the pictures above. You could hear construction noise starting at 8am. Althogh advertised, they did not have hair dryers in the rooms - you had to ask at the from desk- they only had ONE for the ENTIRE hotel and please see the picture of the almost broken hair dryer - we got after waiting 40 minutes on the line?!?! The breakfast had no orange juice, a regular item in Brazil - you had to ask for it, which took 20 minutes to arrive on a half filled glass.
I filed a complain with the Hotel and Best Western and all they offered was a 10 bucks discount on my next visit to a BW hotel - I don`t think so!!!!

It is a pity this hotel is located in such a rundown area.

This part of town has certainly seen better days, and the hotel is surrounded by silent witnesses to those days (ruins of other hotels and hostels).

The hotel itself is comfortable and good value. To Brazilian standards it is actually very high quality. Although breakfast was varied, we didn't really enjoy any of it. Although staff is a bit clumsy, they try their best. Room service is quick and cheap.

We stayed here for three days at a modest rate, and then went to Rio for a week. When we came back from Rio, our connecting flight to Amsterdam was cancelled. The Yak Hotel was willing to offer us the same rate as before (which wasn't officially available). As we didn't know when we could get on another flight, the hotel offered us an extra extra late check-out (10 pm!) at no charge. It turned out this was just what we needed. We were very pleased with this service, especially since the airline company (ArkeFly) hadn't undertaken anything to relieve our huge inconvenience.

So, again, thank you Yak hotel!
