Fodor's Expert Review Naoum Plaza Hotel

SHS, Q. 05, Bl. H/I, Brasília, Federal District, 70322-914, Brazil Fodor's Choice

Editor's Note: This property is currently undergoing renovations.

One of Brasília's most sophisticated hotels, this longtime favorite has a faithful clientele that includes heads of state. (Prince Charles, Nelson Mandela, and Fidel Castro have all stayed in the Royal Suite.) The rooms are elegant, done up in soothing pastels. Little extras such as fresh flowers and desserts in every room let you know the high level of service you can expect. The Falls restaurant provides a dazzling array of Brazilian fruits and juices for breakfast, and serves up international cuisine at other times.
