Spent 6 nights here in March. First time in Rio so can't compare with other hotels but I was completely satisfied with my stay. I was working in Barra so the Transamerica was perfectly situated, just a 15' taxi ride away from the office. The recently reconditioned room was spacious, light and comfortable, with an excellent shower. Air con was... More

I stayed in this hotel a several times for business. It was the hotel that the company had some agreements so I was not too bad. Sometimes I had some good rooms sometimes bad ones. But there was one time that the room had some mold and the smell was terrible and for the price this is unacceptable. I went... More

Tive 2 experiências nesse hotel, uma nos quartos maiores dos andares mais altos e outra no quarto comum do sexto andar com vista para as lixeiras. Em ambas, móveis, pinturas e áreas comuns já passam ideia de cansaço com o pesar do tempo; limpeza e esmero na arrumação do quarto e da área do restaurante e café entre as piores... More

I stayed here for a week during a conference. it's about a 15 minute taxi ride to the city centre. The staff was nice, lunch and dinner were decent, the complimentary breakfast left a lot to be desired. The rooms were clean a little dated in some areas. The bathroom is tiny tiny tiny.

Rooms are not clean and they are incredibly noisy. When you give feedback you are told that the reason the converter was not working was because you dropped the converter. If all you want is a place to put your stuff this is a place for you. If you are looking for cleanliness and comfort go elsewhere. Also the food... More

We have arrived after midnight in the hotel, being a couple and not the announced single guest. No fuss was being made, we were simply upgraded into a room with a king sized bed (having a balcony with a great view to the beach). Nice thing, we only paid for the single room we have booked. The shower was great,... More

This is my second review of Transamerica on trip advisor. I changed my review by the way. The main two reasons are the fact the internet is faster on my mobile than in the room, to open my email takes 10 minutes, and this has been like this for a while already but I've never cared.

I stayed at the Transamerica for 6 days while on a business trip. The hotel itself is nice but it suffers from being in a less than ideal location.
