I stayed here for one night, initially, I was a bit disappointed, the curb appeal of the hotel really isn't anything to write home about, but once I got to my room, everything fell into place pretty nicely. Really nice balcony, amazing shower, clean and spacious rooms, good a/c, and pretty good free wifi. It's on an interesting street downtown,... More

Not a bad hotel in itself. Located near Lapa, but far from the Beaches of Copacabana, Ipanema etc. The staff are friendly, only some of them are English-speaking, the rest does not even understand English, which made Communication much harder.

This Hotel is located on Riachuelo street, a ugly, crowded and stinky street of downtown, but these adjectives are a common sense for Rio de Janeiro downtown. Meanwhile is very quiet after 20:00 and will provide a good night's sleep. The room has a good size and is simple but comfortable. The bathroom has a really good size, hair dryer... More

It starts at the front desk, the staff treats you like you're asking to stay there as a favor. The rooms are small and smell like mold, not very clean also. The quality of what is served on the breakfast buffet is very poor, specially the juices. It's located on a busy street and there isn't any kind of noise... More

It was a business trip. Hotel has small but clean rooms. I was not happy with the size of the rooms. Rooms have noise from the road. The only advantage was that it was closer to the city center and that the supermarkets were closer to this place. Other than that I could not find any thing good. TV was... More

Stay here for 5 days by travel agency when we first visited Rio. It is located in busy street, not very tourist friendly neighborhood and maybe kind of noisy in Centro. Easy access for daily needs, like market and restaurants with great price. Serve with great breakfast. Staffs speak little English but can communicate without problem. Don't book tour or... More

Stayed here for 5 nights as part of a carnival package. The hotel is pretty big, and consists of 2 different buildings and has a courtyard with a small pool. Our room was spacious, beds comfy and spotless clean (we were in the "back building"). The reception staff spoke only a little bit of English, but were helpful regarding busses.... More

Stayed here several times while in Rio as part of my job in tourism. Have to say that I find it very good with friendly staff (not many english speakers amongst them though), great breakfast, a small outdoor pool area and very close to the action if you are in Rio for Carnival. Also, for getting around the city, buses... More
