The hotel is in Catete next to Flamengo, about five minutes walk from the subway station Catete. The rooms are huge, the street is a bit noisy (as well as the air condition), the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. But the best is the breakfast: a lot of fresh fruit, juices, some Brazilian specialities, this is just gorgeous -... More

The breakfast is fine, the Hotel is very close to a subway station, there is a car park with no extra costs. The room is large, with a small room before the bedroom. Simple but comfortable. The air conditioner is not a split, it did a bit of noise during the night.

This a good hotel to stay in room with 2-3 beds per room. The place is well located and the price is relatively good. You can use the subway to go to several places and avoid delays by car. It is close to the airport, etc.

The staff at the door and in the restaurant were lovely, as was breakfast, the room and proximity to beach and shops. I'd read bad reviews about the reception staff before going and didn't think it would be much of a problem, but they really are terrible.

Poor quality rooms with unpolite staff made our trio a very unpleasant experience. No hot water in the shower and no effort to solve the problem, the elevators do not reach 9th floor. So, do yourself a favor, go to another place.

Stayed here in June 2014 during the World Cup. I won't ever be coming back, although it was ok enough given teh high prices during the tournament. Is situated on a nice street in Flamengo, close to the metro and domestic airport. Hotel is pretty basic and 3* at best...decor in the rooms came straght from the 1970s, although it... More

Hotel is located a block from the beach. Flamengo Beach isn't Copa to Ipanema, but a great place for sunning and walking. Hotel is close to shopping. Superior rooms are sizable with big screen TV, safe, king sized beds, refrigerator. There are more modest rooms without windows for less money. Hotel is pricey but still less than ones in Copa...

POSITIVE: Staff helpful and courteous. Breakfast good, with fruit and fresh juices. NEGATIVE: The hotel is old and expensive for what it offers (European price, but a 3rd world hotel). Rooms with little comfort. Old and uncomfortable beds and furnitures. Some rooms are not accessible by elevator. CONCLUSION: AVOID.

Lousy hotel, horrible rooms and unpleasant staff. And rooms over 90 euros per night. This is how ridiculous the hotel prices are in Rio.
