I was so happy with this hotel. Reasonably priced, the room was well appointed and very comfortable. The staff were friendly although not many spoke English. The breakfast was pretty standard for Brazil with no complaints. The hotel is very well located and in walking distance to the major bus stations with a supermarket at the end of the road. I'd definitely stay here again.

This hotel belongs to the best of my history of travel solely for the people that work there all the rest (location, rooms, amenities..) are very good but the people make to stay at the Blue Tree Florianopolis an exceptional experience.

An older building but with modern upgrades. The room itself (a single king size bed) was reasonably spacious. Some of the walls/paint could be cleaner but, hey for what I paid, I can't really complain.
Quiet and comfortable place to wind down a day out sightseeing - perfect for me (a sole traveler).
Right in central/downtown if that's an asset. Close walk (< 10 minutes) to the bus terminal for daytrips/excursions to the more interesting parts (to me) of the island.

12 day stay:
Internet was slow as F
Really bad Gym facilities
TV was local - not HD
No channels in English!!
Really bad smoke coming from outside - near factory??
Breakfest was OK
Room service was great (food) even tho they almost charged twice and no menu inside the room?!?
Good location - near the city and easy to get to all beaches
Very helpful concierge for directions
Door keys kept getting error needed to reset twice.
Much work to be done to make this a great hotel but it is fairly new and you can see they are learning from mistakes.
Shame there is no pool, there is a great balcony for it on the top floor :(
Near the favelas of Floranopolis so keep an eye out when traveling to the city.
It's got this "cheap" feeling with many things and shower having a simple look and nothing fancy.
It is hard to get a good quality hotel in the area for the same price so what you pay is what you get.
Florianopolis Brazil is a nice place to visit, the hotel by american standards is a cross between a Ridisson, and a Holiday Inn. and I will be the best you will find in the proximity of the city. The staff is helpful and have a positive attitude toward Americans, in many case they do have someone who speaks English at the front desk. The food is good, but there are many options around the hotel including a good food court in the Mall located just across the hotel.
The staff at the front desk were extremely helpful and all speak very good English. The highlight of this hotel for me, was the excellent breakfast at a very reasonable price. Great, safe location. Hope to be back.
With its large shopping malls, high-end restaurants, and glamorous nightclubs, downtown Florianopolis on the Island of Santa Catarina is a magnet for those seeking a party destination. This downtown destination is conveniently near the two highways that connect Florianopolis to Brazil's mainland.
