Well, I loved the location. Right next to beachfront with numerous eating and drinking places just steps away.
Personnel is helpful, although with little english knowledge.
There is a pool on the roof and breakfast is ok.
So far the positive points. The rest of the place is very old and urgently needs a brush up. Rooms are noisy and kept in seventies style with everything falling apart. Toilet and shower do work but look like public places. Wifi is a bit slow. There is, beside a fridge a noisy aircon and a TV, no further equipment in the room.
Generally I had the impression of a very cheap family hotel.

The location is excellent, and the restaurant inside is very good (and expensive). However, do not be fooled by the clean lobby and restaurant. The rooms need renovating, and smell like cigarette smoke. Though it is against the rules, guests smoke in their rooms, and unfortunately my temporary neighbor chain-smoked all night. The management did nothing to stop this. Nevertheless, I thought the hotel staff and restaurant staff were courteous and efficient. My room was next to the elevator, but it did not disturb me. The air conditioner was weak, but the Internet worked ok most of the time. This could be a great hotel again if they did a comprehensive renovation, but that would likely require outside investment. I spent a week there during a business trip (the convention center is far away from the Xenius and all other hotels, thus allowing taxi drivers to gouge everyone). I would stay there again. The beach is literally across the street and is very clean compared to cities like Recife, Salvador, and Fortaleza. I think the Xenius is a good deal overall, and better than many alternatives for those on a tight budget. Though the choices were slim compared to my previous experiences, the breakfast was good, and had a decent choice of juices. Hotels in the USA charge 4 to 6 times the price of hotels like the Xenius, and are NOT located adjacent to nice beaches (which would cost more than 10x), and NEVER have good breakfasts with fresh fruits, juices, and excellent coffee. Eu amo Brasil!!!

This hotel is in a great location, within steps of the beach. The hotel is trying to be nice (nice looking lobby, restaurant adjacent to lobby, nicely dressed staff, bellhop to carry bags to your room), but the facilities do not catch up to the service.

My third-floor room was nice in that it has windows on two sides (including one looking out at the beach), but the street noise was pretty loud, there was a window with no glass pane in the bathroom, the bathroom door was really beat up, the air conditioning did not do much so the room was pretty warm, and there were some other beat up parts of the room. I was glad upon checking in that my stay was only for one night. But on the positive side, it was clean and felt safe. My double room was reasonable size for one person, but would have been rather small for two (even a couple).

Additionally, no one at check-in or check out spoke any English, which made things difficult. I certainly do not recommend staying here if you do not speak Portuguese, as the people I dealt with did not try very hard to understand me. There also seemed to be cheaper places to stay that seemed fine (I paid R$177 for one night at Xenius), so if I visited Joao Pessoa again I would try a different hotel.

This hotel is well located on the sea front, cheap given local prices and serves a reasonable breakfast, but it is very poorly maintained. Our room had no bathroom lock and was infested with ants. One of the bedside lights did not work, even after a visit by hotel maintenance. We then moved to the room next door, but the shower hot water did not work. Hotel maintenance then fixed this by replacing a worn rubber washer. In both rooms, the bed mattress easily shifted so that my wife fell off one night. The air conditioning in both rooms was weak and noisy, with an open gap above the AC unit in the first room whihc we had to stuff with towels. The hotel parking lot is only accessible by small cars. The nice staff are helpful, but we will never stay here again.
