While visiting Brazil, I stayed a couple of nights in Belo Horizonte, one of the host city of the 2014 World Cup. Belo Horizonte means “Beautiful Horizon” in Portuguese and the city is the capital of the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais. The feel is very corporate in the city due to the industries and the businesses around; completely different to Sao Paulo or Rio.
I stayed at the Promenade BH Platinum a 4* luxury hotel…
Well, I do not know where they get the luxury from but I can assure you it is not a luxury hotel ! In BH it is one of the best hotel as I have been told.
The service was rather shaky for not saying the less…the worse experience I had during my time in Brazil that I would happily forget. However, my room was spacious, clean with enough storage and a working AC unit.
The breakfast is complimentary – which means included in your rate (between you and me 😉 ) a hot and cold buffet that was nicely presented and refilled constantly.
The hotel offers many facilities to its guests such as a gym, swimming pool, sauna and Jacuzzi. However, I did not try any of those facilities as I was busy going out for dinners !
Make sure you book via the website and it is extremely difficult to speak to anybody from reservation or even get a reply via email.
The hotel still has a lot of improvement to do before the arrivals of international guests for the Football World Cup especially in the staff.
Overall, it is a practical hotel that offer spacious rooms, WIFI and many facilities, a big mall is around the corner which I went to…obviously ! Ideal for visitors who are busy during the day and want to stay in for dinner too.
I paid about £190 for 2 nights.
