We stayed at Castelmar Hotel in early January 2015 and had a lovely time there. Our room had an amazing view of Hercilio Luz bridge. The hotel is well located, within walking distance from the high street shops - we wanted to stay in the city centre and not near the beaches as we stayed for only 1 night. The room was very spacious, had been recently redecorated, and our 4-year old had a comfy sofa bed all for himself, which was great. Breakfast was also very good. Thumbs up to the hotel staff!

This hotel is very basic. It seems to be an option if you are looking for a sleep-only hotel. Cost is very low and the quality you get is somewhat questionable.
We stayed here for 4 nights during an extended holiday where the hotel was fully booked.
Staff was gentle and happy to help but they were clearly understaffed (eg.: There is no room service and the kitchen/lounge staff is composed of only 1 waiter. The poor guy could not keep up with the demand of 8 people for example. Our room was not cleaned during 3 days out of 4. Used food trays were left for a couple days on the door entrance. There are more examples)
Some people in our group had problems in their rooms: mold and termites. In our case the room was ok. Stained furniture, a bathroom with no ventilation and a few other aspects that make this hotel a “sleep only” option.

Pros:
Price
Staff willingness to help

Cons:
Understaffed
Rooms have a few problems like termites and mold that should be solved

Room tip: Ask for one with no Termites on it and you should be fine.

The site of the hotel shows many nice photos of good accomodations and premises. However, when I got to the hotel, first of all, I received very bad treatment from the recepctionists, who were all rude and totally lost. The elevator is really old and kind of scary.
Still, my biggest disappointment was when I got to the bedroom. It lacked safety, it had very old furniture, it was not perfectly clean and not comfortable at all. The bathroom was filthy and there was a very old shower.
There were some stains on the bed blankets (don't know if it was blood or wine), the curtains were dirty and didn't open properly and I could not leave the hotel because I was afraid someone would break into the room as anyone could enter just by kicking the door. Fortunately I only stayed there for one night. I have taken many pictures to confirm what I am writing here. Please, don't stay at Castelmar in Florianópolis.

Room tip: don't stay here!

I and a job mate stayed there during 3 nights. The room was old fashion and dark. The furniture old and the toilet didn´t present a very good appearance…the courtains could not be opened properly, 3 lamps were broken and the mini hygienic shower didn´t run. The key electric system was supposed to turn the devices off, but didn´t work as well.
The cable TV broke on the second night and I couldn´t access the Wi-Fi net, which we considered very complicated to understand. It had too many login pages and passwords to deal with. By the way, the TV was standard, not LCD, what was not a big issue.
The gym room was equipped with 3 treadmills and some weights. There were no equipments to work muscles.
We learned that this hotel had been originally a normal residential building and has been switched to a hotel afterwards. We also learned that Tower 1 (or A) was refurbished and looks nice, but Tower 2 (or B) is still looking like the 80´s (or 70´s…). Our room (515) was located in Tower 2.
There was a kind of living room with absolutely no utility at all.
By the way, 515 had 2 bedrooms and this huge (for Brazilian standards) living room. No decoration was a feature that really impressed us (not in a good way…).
The breakfast was reasonable, in the last day its air conditioner was not working properly. The staff was friendly. During the check out I reported these issues to the front desk and one lady simply give me a form to fill in…

Room tip: Tower A is newer than Tower A.
