Set close to the city’s most bustling points, of hospitals and universities and providing easy access to Salgado Filho Airport, it is the Plaza Hotel Chain’s largest hotel, located in the Historical Center of Porto Alegre and constantly innovating to provide you with the very best welcome! Its renowned service quality captivates all who visit, whether for business or pleasure, in search of excellent cuisine and, most importantly, rest, in rooms and suites with exclusive features such as 24 hour room service and free Internet. The city offers a very comfortable transportation service, which passes through the Plaza Sao Rafael Hotel six times a day for guests arriving in Porto Alegre by Salgado Filho Airport. It is the POA Express Airport Bus, a bus line from the company TurisSilva whose vehicles are equipped with air conditioning, heating, luggage rack, wi-fi service and trackers. The Galpao Crioulo Churrascaria and Praia de Belas Shopping are also between the bus stops. The first exit from the Airport towards the downtown is at 6:00 a.m. and the last departure time from Salgado Filho is at 11:30 p.m. Your business hotel in Porto Alegre The Plaza Sao Rafael boasts the largest Events Center in a hotel in Rio Grande do Sul and is considered one of the most complete in the country for hosting congresses, conventions, fairs, seminars, product launches, and a range of other such business, cultural and scientific events. As it is located in front of the Hotel, the Plaza San Rafael Events Center is the best option for participants of events held there. A specialized team accompanies you and your company with all the competence that an executive hotel of an international level requires. Your corporate events, celebrations and parties will benefit from innumerous personalized services, including everything from budget negotiation, to the preparation of a menu suited to each occasion. For moments of relaxation and fun, besides the silence ensured by soundproofed windows, the hotel has a rooftop with a beautiful view of the state capital. In this, our guests have an outside deck, a 25-meter swimming lane with slightly warm mineral water (between 25°and 28°C) for swimming, sauna and a fitness center with cutting-edge equipment. Externally, in the roof deck, we have a hot tub with higher temperature mineral water for relaxing. Both pool and the hydro contain mineral water. The excellent properties of the Hotel’s mineral waters can also be enjoyed in certain suites. And, to completely unwind, how about a happy hour in the 514 Lobby Bar?

This is a very traditional hotel, that keeps it's high quality standards. Excellent choice if you have business to do downtown (Historic District). The service is very good and, despite its age, the hotel keeps everything shining new.
