12:27 hotel das nacoes
Price: 85R + 10% (weekend special)
Facing the shopping mall Patio Brasil
A budget mid range hotel in Brasilia
Air con (very loud), TV, fridge, hot water, telephone

So it is not a 4 star hotel, and rooms are "a bit" dated, but in a cheap convenient location, this seems to be an excellent choice.

Wait for bus near Patio Brasil, but the bus number in Lonely Planet is probably wrong or outdated.

It?s a tacky new age temple. It has the world?s ?largest? crystal on the top of the pyramid (I bracket the word ?largest? because I vaguely remember reading somewhere about a larger crystal).
