Rooms were large and airy. However, service is absolutely subpar for an establishment in this price range. One of the front desk attendants flat out refused to order me a cab, lazily giving me a list of numbers and asking me to make the call myself. Another one simply said they don't give out "medicine" to patrons due to potential... More

Coming from Rio, with it's busy life and crowded streets, going to Barra, it is quite relaxed. It is walking distance to the beach. there is a sort of ferry taking you over a small canal, to reach the beach. Beaches where empty, but there are a few small local places where you can get a drink or beer. Friendly... More

It has a sort of infinity pool, which is not quite infinity but is a decent pool. The food is not quite up to the standard of the price asked. Honestly, if you travel business, is ok, but for relax and leisure I would search for something else.

The hotel, room, service and amenities were nice. Most of all I liked the region. In Barra da Tijuca there are no slums and the streets are very quiet. Two blocks from the hotel there is a supermarket. To get to the beach you need to walk a block, then cross a canal on a catamaran (free for Transamerica customers)... More

I agree with most of the reviews - if you are expecting an "American" mid-priced business hotel (I'm comparing to the Marriott Courtyard) you will be disappointed but it is competitive by Brazilian business hotel standards (e.g. HB Hotels). Safe, quiet neighborhood - I thought the views were actually quite nice (beach/ocean and mountains). Room was clean, bathroom small but... More

It appears to be great, I will say it's good enough but not excellent. I arrive early morning, and I was charged for one additional night because check-in starts after 1pm. I expend one week there, and I could say it is a common hotel, good but not extraordinary.
