We stayed 2 nights here and were so impressed. The hotel has been beautifully maintained in the historic Art Deco style, yet the rooms are modern and comfortable. We paid a little extra to have a room at the front with small balcony and beautiful view. The staff here are wonderful - so friendly and helpful- great service. The breakfast is good and they are quick to replenish any items that run low. Highly recommend this hotel and would love to return
Built in 1930, the hotel was reopened in 2011 after a 45 year hiatus. It's like the golden age of glamour in the lobby. Checked in promptly despite turning up 2 hours before the 3pm check in, which was very much appreciated. We were a party of 4, 2 rooms. Both rooms identical….spacious, clean, quality linens, VERY comfy bed, effective A/C unit (saving grace since it was 34C outside being summertime). Fast WiFi though a little annoying to have to login every few hours (I thought hotels had abolished this way of logging in a decade ago). Shower had excellent pressure (there's a clasp to alter the angle of the showerhead). We came by car and there's free parking with valet service which is very helpful and also very cheerful valet man who helped us with our bags too. Nice touch! Breakfast was simple and not anything to write home about though that is typical in Brazil. We're not really breakfast folk but enjoyed the coffee as a pick-me-up with a slice of toast and jam. I'd recommend to couples, folk on business and families alike, whether for an overnight stay or longer - has everything you would want and need. The Hotel is situated in the heart of Petropolis' historic centre so can walk everywhere within the historic town. Overall can only but give the hotel 5* and would certainly stay again if ever in the lovely town that is Petropolis. To the staff at Grande Hotel, keep up the great work!…
We stayed here for a single night in mid-September 2019 and were not disappointed. We had two single rooms, one facing the street with a cute balcony, at R$450 each, with breakfast. The hotel is well-appointed and the rooms spacious and well laid out. It is not the height of luxuty but it is sufficient if you want to be in the centre of the town, a classic, rather old-fashioned hotel. Breakfast was very good, and valet parking easy and convenient at no extra charge. Petrropolis is not the most exciting city, but it has pretty streets and is of great historical interest - a good stop, about 90 minutes (depending on traffic and weather: the road gets very narrow, steep and windy in parts) out of Rio if you are travelling later into Minas Gerais as we were. The main reason we stopped here was to see Casa Zweig, which was, sadly, a disapointment as nothing of the interior of the house remains and no atmosphere of the post has been preserved in any way.…
Beautifully refurbished hotel of the beginning of the 20th century, the Grande Hotel Petrópolis offers comfortable accommodations, each with their own workstation. The hotel is environmentally-friendly and has received massive investment for that purpose. There are units adapted for the handicapped. The restaurant is very peaceful, has a very nice menu and reasonable prices. Service is impeccable.
Okay so it's not getting a 5 star rating but this is a very nice place to stay if you are visiting Petropolis. It is located right in the heart of this bustling town. My room was very comfortable. It was a bit cold, it being winter in Brazil, but there were additional bed covers available in the room to overcome this. There was no iron or ironing board in the room. I didn't check with reception but I'm sure they would have provided one if asked. Breakfast was adequate. A selection of breads, cakes, fruits and some hot products. The hotel staff were very friendly. I would stay here again if I am ever visiting Petropolis again. I would also recommend Casa D'Angelo just across the street from the hotel for a great place to get a drink and people watch.
Not as "sophisticated" and "design" as on their website description... still keep on falling for the marketing, damnit!! The keyword here should be "standard". Standard hotel. Standard staff. Standard rooms. Standard breakfast buffet. Nothing fancy. End of story. If you need to stay there, get the front rooms with the nicer view. Restaurant is a bit of a let down, don't eat there (we had to because it was pouring outside). It seemed they were surprised to have guests, and it tasted like that. Still, probably one of Petropolis' best hotels. Unfortunately. Petropolis is best done on a day trip from Rio.
Stayed here recently on a business trip, found the hotel really nice with friendly helpful staff, the rooms were spotless and air conditioned as it would've been too hot without it, breakfast was a bit limited but still of good quality. Would definitely use this hotel again as its in a good central location with bars and restaurants all within walking distance.
We spent a night at the Grande Hotel, while viewing the sights in Petropolis. For the average tourist, the sights consist of the Imperial Museum, some remodeled homes of former nobility, a wax museum and not much else... Petropolis is a very nice little town up in the mountains northeast of Rio de Janeiro for those who don't know it. Here the Portuguese Imperial family spent it's summers while in exile in Brazil, avoiding both the wrath of Napoleon and the sultry Rio summers. According to staff, the hotel was closed for many years, until it was renovated, starting in 2005 and re-opened in 2011. The hotel is relatively small (5 floors), about 60 rooms and suites, but very well renovated with modern rooms and modern bathrooms. We stayed in a Luxo room, which is the basic room, but in the front of the hotel with a view of the city's central plaza right outside our windows. There is a little less expensive room called Superior, which is essentially the same room on the back side of the hotel, with a less inspiring view from the windows. There were a couple of minor annoyances, which would not be found in most of the rooms, like the mis-aligned toilet seat and the partially shredded blackout curtain (see attached photos). Things that are easily fixed if management inspected the rooms, and did not expect the cleaning help to report these types of problems. But they seemed to miss these things. The hotel has it's own restaurant, where it serves it's breakfast buffet, and lunch and dinner, as well. The menu is upscale but limited. The food is well prepared and reasonably priced (this is a hotel restaurant, of course). There are other restaurants in the vicinity of the hotel, for those that want to get out and about.…
I spent two nights here during my inaugural visit to Petropolis and found it to be both a charming and practical choice. I flew into Rio and organized transportation with the hotel via a lovely driver for about $75 USD each way. The driver was perfect and couldn't have been more cautious and conscientious going up and down the steep mountain passes. I was able to walk everywhere and there were plenty of nearby sightseeing opportunities from the Imperial Palace to the Crystal Palace, Cathedral, and Boehemia Brewery. I was able to dine in the hotel one evening and found the food to be good, not great, but everyone was very attentive. The staff didn't speak much English, but the front desk always jumped in to help resolve any translation issues. I didn't much love Petropolis (day trip, not a multi-day trip at best), but if I had to go back, I'd stay here for sure!…
I could stay for a weekend at this excelent hotel with a careful service, breakfast with many tasty choices. It is exceptionally located near everywhere you should visit in Petrópolis. The building is a pearl! Clean and correct! I recomend enthusiastically!
