Spent six nights there, beginning of 2014. The facilities are old and not well maintained, but the staff is friendly and tries to help you whenever possible. Ask for the locks if you need to use the "safe" in the room. We did see some insects but the streets in front are what they are. The AC in the room... More

Rio's Nice Hotel was a 3 star hotel but there is nothing 3 stars about it. It is in a very unsafe part of town. The rooms were not nice or clean. The safe in the room looked like it had been broken open and was unusable. The staff were very friendly but the sign at registration said no prostitution... More

I work for a travel agency, and we had six clients at this hotel in January 2013. They were not satisfied with the hotel, unfriendly staff and dirty rooms in a dodgy neighboorhood. Rio's "Not Nice" Hotel unfortunately...

Our family stayed there from Jan 17 to 21, 2012. The room is worse than a typical motel, small (extremely), old, noisy and many devices were not functioning. It was in summer but the AC did not work. The AC upstairs was leaking and the water drops made big noise on our window. Their solution was having our window open... More

My husband and I stayed here during 6/27-7/1/11 during our travel in Rio de Janeiro. Overall, it's a decent low-budget hotel if you are looking to save money and stay close by the trains/attractions- approx. 10 min. to Rue de Gloria or a further walk to Rue de Lapa. The pics on the website totally misrepresents what the actual rooms/bar/pool... More

I stayed at this hotel for 3 days in November 2010. I picked the hotel because it was in the type of neighborhood that i wanted to be in. I really liked the fact that there was everything that i could ever want in a square mile of the hotel. I really enjoyed being able to interact with tons of... More

All in all, this is a kind of Brazilian standard hotel. Reception: some could speak English. Whenever they could (once they have understood what one wanted) they tried to help and give advice. Room: very old, but with TV (local programs only) and fridge and a/c which could be used as cooler or heater. However, room is clean. Breakfast: might... More
