Excellent location and service

Comfortable rooms, great location, good breakfast and afternoon tea with soups, etc (it can substitute dinner for some). I stayed at this hotel for a week during a conference in Curitiba, and was very pleased. Internet worked fine as well.
Great location, but don't expect too much

The hotel was okay. When we arrived there was a minor issue with our reservation. I had pre-paid but they asked for a payment. We had to wait for the Receptionist to confirm the payment with the manager. That should be done before the guest arrives. They offer a night time coffee/snack in their restaurant for free. This was a nice option after spending lots of money over the week eating out. It was our last night in Curitiba so we were able to eat for free. They had soup and some other hot snacks as well as breads, cakes, ham and cheese, fruits and coffee. The next morning they offered pretty much the same for breakfast except without the soup. The room was the problem. The bed was comfortable and big for two people. But the room was really dirty. The floor was dirty, The shower had mold growing in the grout. But the biggest problem was the shower. The water was barely warm. It is winter in Curitiba. Nobody wants to take a cold shower. It was extremely uncomfortable. What is more bothersome about the water being cold is the fact that after reading comments on other sites and on this site, the cold water problem has been going on at this hotel for a while. Yet, the hotel has done nothing to correct the problem. Which tells me that they either don't care or are trying to save money by not keeping the water adequately hot.
Extremely helpful staff and great location

This hotel is perfect to see the centre of Curitiba.
Alvario was wonderful - I'd just lost my passport just before I arrived, and speaking no Portuguese, I wasn't sure what to do. He spent hours with me, on the phone to the airports, airlines, local and federal police. He even refused a tip, despite making a huge difference to my holiday and spending heaps of time with me. The rest of the staff were also really helpful, and most of them speak fluent English.
In terms of the food, there was a standard Brazilian hotel breakfast - buffet style, lots of variation. And if you're money conscious, they have a free 'supper' as well - usually soup, very nice and easily enough for dinner.
The rooms are nice but basic, though being in such a beautiful city you spend most of your time outside anyway. If I make it back to Curitiba, I'll definitely be staying here again.
Great value for money

Very professional and friendly staff lead by Mr Álvaro whose social skills are second to none.
The hotel is centrally located and in close proximity to a number of shopping centres.
I will return no doubt!

This is my favourite hotel in the Brazilian culture capital, Curitiba.
The hotel is centrally located and a throw-stone away from various department stores and several restaurants.
Most of the staff at Hotel Centro Europeu make an effort to communicate with overseas guests. Dieter from reception speaks perfect English. He is a great asset to this gem of a hotel.
