The hotel was in the middle of the center. Not far from town and not far from Copacobana beach. The rooms ware basis but ok. The reception staff was friendly. The internet was working from time to time. But I guess that's Brazil.

Hotel was decent, rooms were a bit small and cramped but the roof terrace had a small pool and we loved it. Breakfast was very good as well. Great location walking to either the sambadrome or the Lapa aqueduct. We stayed during carnival and felt very safe throughout our stay.

Good location, breakfast and shower! I didn't have any feelings about cleanliness which is just okay. But it is one of the budget hotels! We stayed only one night and moved to the hostel which is located near Copacabana. Anyways, from my point of view, if you are looking for a budget hotel, not a hostel, it is worth consideration.

This hotel is average. Clean enough. Rooms straight from a fifties detective movie. Beautiful parquet. The showers were very good with plenty of water and realy hot. The safe was in the closet, but it did not have a lock. I rather liked the neighborhood. I did not feel unsafe. The staff were a bit on the surly side of... More

Read a lot of bad reviews here...but I had no other option to stay. I was here for the last week of the World Cup...and yes, a lot of the comments here are true: old rooms and not your luxury hotel. But if you need just a place to rest in Rio, I would reccomend it. Do not expect the... More

We stayed here during the Football World Cup as we could not get in anywhere else. It was clean, the staff where helpfully and the breakfasts above average. Internet was useless at times, and security poor with no safes in the room we used. For those looking for a higher end experience stay away.

I would say it's located in a very bad part of town short of being a slum. Friends and I traveled in july, and what they call a "pool" is more like an over sized bath tub on an unkept rooftop that wasn't even clean during vacation season. Shower stalls are so small you can barely lift your arms to... More

As per the title really, this is an affordable decent hotel in Rio de Janeiro. Located about 10-mins in a taxi from copacabana beach (taxi about a tenner) 10 mins walk from Lapa. Lapa is a bit 'rough and ready', especially in the daytime! Beware walking around the streets of the hotel, you'll definitely encounter shed loads of homeless people... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for carneval. It is a good buget hotel, and we personally didn't experience anything of the negative reviews also on tripadvisor. Pros: good location, friendly helpful staff, great breakfast, clean rooms with wooden floorboards, flatscreen tv and fridge; on main rd with good bus connection, shops and restaurants close by. Cons: wifi intermittent, small... More

Basically you'll get a bed, a tv, a fridge with a mini bar and a bathroom. This is 'no frills'. On the other hand: you're in Rio so why bother doing something else in your room but sleeping. The hotel serves breakfast at the S/L level of the building, which is very decent. The corridors and the elevator are a... More
