I spent two days in a business trip. The room was comfortable and clean. Room service and front desk are very good. The restaurant was under reform and was improvised in a big room, but not too fresh food. To pay attention to the mosquito in the room.

I have been at this hotel for approximately 3 weeks and the service in general is really bad. Out of 5 elevators 2 or 3 were always broken and the others not properly programed, had to consider extra 5 min every morning to wait for one. The trash is transported in the same elevators and they stink most of the... More

I spent 2 weeks here while working in Barra. First up, this hotel is so much better than where I stayed previously, so my views may have a lower starting point than others! Reception staff were great - all spoke English to some extent, and some of them very well. My room was fine - good wifi, working air con... More

The hotel is near to Rio Centro Convention Center; is clean, the service is very good, located in area with international mall, and... More

My wife and I stayed at this hotel in June 2015 for 5 nights. We attended a conference at the central convention center. Just to preface, there is absolutely no worries about safety in this area. This is an area with lots of high end international shopping outlets and some nice restaurants. This is like a suburb of Rio. There... More

While this is my third stay at this hotel within the past year, I notice a slow but steady decline in the status of this property. All services--restaurant, front desk, etc. remain very good, but the property itself (rooms, pool area) are looking a bit worn.

Based on the reviews I read, and the price I paid, I expected a 4-star hotel and not a 3-star hotel. The hotel is OK, it's clean and it has an OK breakfast, it is adjacent to a great gym where you can work out, but somehow it felt a bit "cheap". I may have been influenced by the fact... More

Stayed here for my first few days in Rio. Did not care for the location too much since it was away from all the big spots. Staff was friendly, they were always there to help with the messed up door. If you are coming to Rio for the Olympics, I would recommend staying since some of the events are being... More
