Was thinking about the other Mercure (next block!) but chose this one based on reviews. Despite minor glitches, my friend and I were very happy with this choice. The restaurant closed early the one night we wanted to use it and the sister hotel's was also closed due to a plumbing problem! But the room was great - two rooms in a small suite actually - comfortable and totally clean and modern. By my British standards, it was nearly luxurious. My moan: WiFi should not cost 35 reais a day (so we didn't use it).
Note: ALL the hotels are in more or less the same location (north side or south side of the main road) so there is no point in making a choice based on location. They are all next to each other anyway.

After exchanging a lot of emails in which they told me I would have transportation from the airport and a good apartment, when I got to Brasilia at first they would not answer me. Then they told me we could not get transportation because they didn't have any in Brasilia.. And finally after waiting for about 5 hours at the airport the guy tells me that there no more apartments available. So I ended up with no transportation and no apartment. The only good thing they did was pay for another hotel which in my opinion they had to do it.. It is very unprofessional to sell something that you don't have and even worse during a World Cup.
One Staff member was our saving grace,speaking perfect English while no one else on staff spoke a word! One of the first hotels in Brasilia, a bit funkier than the surrounding hotels,but way less mola. Right in the heart of the hotel area,the main tower and water fountain close by. Mostly Brazilians at our Hotel, and a basic but good breakfast buffet.
I arrived early due to my airline and the staff was not only super helpful and welcoming but allowed me to check-in early due to availability. It has a nice breakfast buffet (which could be deadly if you're on a diet.) The staff is friendly and wonderful. They have both pools and lake access so you ant go wrong. Even off a dock you can see the JK bridge. And the room is something much like Top Gun in the sense that it will take your breathe away.
