Very nice hotel with very helpful and courteous staff. Definitely geared for business guests with large areas provided for them.
Room was large and very inviting. Nice view of parts of the mall and neighbouring hotels in the district. WiFi was provided with a decent selection of channels on the TV. Bed was very comfortable, with back support but enough give to make you slip away into a wonderful sleep.
Free breakfast was provided with an assortment of Brazilian morning dishes in a buffet style with plenty of food, juices and a selection of teas or coffees. Dining area was very large, noting overly fancy as it was just a very functional dining area with tables, chairs and some decorations to make you feel relaxed and comfortable.
Bathroom was very spacious and very clean. Shower was fantastic.

Resort feel, huge complex of swimming pools. Room, staff, breakfast all spectacular. Very helpful staff,fantastic location and facilities, lovely bar and the most fantastic sunsets over the lake.
Very clean with a hot tub and strong water pressure. There should be be list of things to do for guests. Kayaking, tennis lessons, boat rides and golf courses.
Beautiful Hotel directly on the Lake. Huge pool with brick walkway on the property and lake. Suite was very nice with comfortable bed. Clean inside and out.
The room was well-apportioned and had all the amenities that you would expect, the only downside in our opinion was the lack of English-speaking TV channels. The facilities are good here, in particular the swimming pools which in my opinion are the best in Brasilia. Gets very busy at weekends but is peaceful and quiet during the week. In the evenings if you are very lucky the pool area is visited by Capybaras which are big rat-like animals and very friendly.
The bar and food service at the pool is good and the staff are friendly (although struggle with speaking any English so make sure you take your phrase book if you are not Brazilian!). The prices are very reasonable and the quality of food and drink is very good.
The Old Bar where we ate in the evening is very popular both with hotel guests and visitors and serves very good quality food and some lovely wines.
All in all a great base and good value for money if you are in Brasilia for business or pleasure and despite what previous reviews said, we found the wi-fi exceptionally good.
Located on a clear, calm lake, this location has all the amenities of a 5-star hotel. Buffet breakfast (included) is sumptuous. No complaints about the two restaurants on site. Decor is modernistic.
This is a gated resort with a fairly small grounds so don’t expect to do much walking within the compound. This hotel is just around the corner from the President’s house so a walk down the street is pretty safe and nice. Amenities were good, breakfast was vast and well stocked. I got a second key card for the room and kept the
AC running all day so it was cool when I got back to the room. It is the European style power where the power in the room goes off when you take the key out … but there is a cure for that.The lobby was designed with geometric shapes and the breakfast was quite varied. There were tables and chairs by the pool where you could relax and forget about the day’s hectic schedule. Surprisingly, I came across a peacock and some strange local pigs called Capybara in the yard. These pigs would come out only at night.
It’s located in a resort and was not crowded. I would describe the hotel as luxurious with splendid service. The prices were also reasonable.

When you look up, you realize that’s the internal courtyard for this tower. Looks awesome. I loved the modern colourful chairs and palm Christmas Trees, haha. Great fusion. Glass window lifts are just on the back.
ROOM *** This was so called “The Level Premier – Block D” room. Room was stunning! Really impressed with it. Spacious, fresh, modern, spotless clean & shiny and during 3 days I was definitely able to say it was extremely comfortable. There was super-comfy king sized bed (with selection of pillows), some kind of sitting bench (which I always hit or kick), a lounger, working desk with an office (and normal as well) chair, another table (with glass chess board!) and of course mini-bar (well stocked, prices very decent) and plenty of storage spaces. Things like safety deposit box and iron board were there as well. I like the Nespresso machine and this was replenished daily.
Room had good lightning and all switches were comfortably situated. There were plenty of electrical sockets as well.
Air-condition was really effective and quiet.
BATHROOM *** Also spotless clean and spacious. Loved the huge shower, however I found bathroom in the “green level” rooms far nicer. I really enjoyed the line of toiletries they were providing – nice, high quality cosmetics.
BREAKFAST *** As the Level Lounge was closed, I was having my breakfast in the main restaurant. No complaint, as selection there is amazing. Name it – have it. Very tasty, great choice of cold and hot meals, fresh fruit, cakes, cereals etc. It can be busy at certain time, but always all items well stocked. You just don’t know what to have.
EXECUTIVE LOUNGE *** The Level Club room was very nice. In the afternoon they were serving some small food items (which you can select from the menu and it’s complimentary), drinks, snacks (like cheese board, fruit, small desserts). Staff was absolutely amazing every single moment. I really regret it was only open 1 out of 3 days when I was there. Definitely worth it as room price wasn’t that different. Just make sure, it’s not closed…
INTERNET ACCESS *** Complimentary, easy to access and connection was always stable. No need to re-log-in or worry during my entire stay.
PARKING *** As I mentioned above, there are spaces (marked) in front of the hotel (after security gate) and also in the building nearby (valet). As I was going in and out, I preferred to park my car myself. It was simply easier. I decided to pre-pay at check-in, so I will not have to worry about it… At least that’s what I thought.
STAFF *** Staff at Meliá Brasil 21 is amazing. Reception very helpful (even if very busy) and lounge staff totally amazing. The most helpful people you could have in the hotel and welcoming you always with a genuine smile and true care. Really loved that.
