Slaviero Executive Pinhais offers a variety of amenities for a price that won't break the bank. Located in Pinhais (a city within the Curitiba metropolitan area), the Slaviero Executive is just 15 km (9.5 mi) from Aeroporto Afonso Pena, and a 20-minute drive to Curitiba's city center.
Curitiba is internationally renowned for its rapid bus system. Based on a metro yet entirely above ground, this transportation solution has inspired innovative urban planners since it was first built. A 5-minute walk will take you to a stop where you can hop a bus to the Botanical Garden of Curitiba (the capital city of Parana, one of Brazil's southernmost states). There's even a bus line designed just for tourists. Pay once, and the Linha Turismo will take you to more than 20 attractions. You can get off and reboard at four of the sights. (The bus leaves every 30 minutes. Ask the Slaviero concierge for details.)
There's a pizza place 1 block away, but if don't feel like going out, step into the hotel's Espaco Gourmet restaurant. This eatery dishes up gourmet Brazilian contemporary cuisine for dinner, and serves a buffet-style lunch during the week. Mornings, you can fill your plate from the daily complimentary breakfast buffet. Not on holiday from your workout schedule? Burn off those breakfast bolos (cakes) in the fitness room, stocked with free weights, cardio equipment, and a strength-training machine. (When you're done, you can reward yourself with time in the sauna.)
Sip a cocktail in the lounge area, where cushy chairs await. You can bring your laptop into the bar, and log onto the complimentary wireless (available throughout the property) to research attractions. Valet parking is available on-site (surcharge).
You can admire the city views from your air-conditioned room in this 10-story hotel, or catch the news on TV. Have a seat at the desk and connect your laptop to the complimentary wired or wireless Internet access. If you're hungry, order a snack from the round-the-clock room service or enjoy a treat from the minibar.
