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.
