We liked the experience at the grand hotel, the service is good and the location is great, just aside the imperial museum. I have found it a bit pricy considering the room quality. They merged the two single beds to make a standard double bed, which was not confortable and the quality of the bed sheet were was really poor,... More

For us (as tourists) the location of this hotel was very good, opposite the royal palace, and within walking distance to most other tourist attractions and to various restaurants. We stayed here 2 nights in a quiet period (end of January 2014). Although we just walked into the hotel without having made a prior online reservation, we received the internet-rate... More

We stayed here for three nights over New Years, and really enjoyed our stay. The staff is extremely nice and helpful, and the manager Bianca was wonderful. The room was very nice, modern and clean. Free Wi-Fi. Casual local pub across the street, and walking distance to most attractions. Unfortunately they are missing balconies or any outside patio area, so... More

We stayed for one night in December 2013. The hotel is centrally located close to shopping, restaurants and attractions - walking distance. We rented a car and drove from Rio. The hotel provided valet parking for a nominal cost - it was efficient. The hotel is on a busy street and very limited space to park to check in -... More

Very classy! We loved this hotel and will return from Rio to stay here again. The women working at the reception desk are very helpful and speak English. They helped us with every aspect of our stay.

This hotel dates from 1930 but it has been totally refurbished. It is very modern inside and kept the old fancy facade. It is very close to the main touristic place of Petropolis- Museum Imperial. It has a valet service at the door. The rooms have a good size and are very cosy, with a comfy bed and a marble... More
