I like this hotel because it is right on the beach meaning that you just have to cross the road and you are right at the Praia de Tijuca. Our double room had a lovely view of the beach and even an extra bed thrown in at no extra cost. The restaurant served good food (very nice breakfast) and the... More

We stayed in the hotel for 5 nights while attending a conference in a so called 5 start hotel 1km down the coast. The Praia Linda was superb value- ideal location - almost on the beach with fabulous views but more importantly a really charming hotel with the most friendly, polite and helpful staff I have ever come across. Not... More

The outside of this hotel looks old and not very fancy but everything inside is clean and modern. My spacious room facing the beach was excellent with a king sized bed on the second (US) floor. The staff was courteous and the breakfast was one of the best I have seen. I had one other meal in the restaurant which... More

I stayed in this hotel because of a nearby conference and otherwise would not have discovered it. The district, Barra de Tijuca, is way in the outskirts of Rio and due to serious traffic problems, getting there (or away) can take hours. This is the main drawback of its location. On the good side, Barra is an affluent and safe... More

The side rooms can take two extra kids beds and have good views of beach (over a v busy road) and the mountains. Pluses were breakfast which had loads of great, fresh fruit, and some of the staff who were v friendly and helpful. However some of the reception staff were grumpy and unhelpful.This is not a place to get... More

Pros: Friendly staff, great choice of fruits in breakfast (but if you prefer beef etc., very few choices looking poor - but, not my taste anyway). Location: right on beach. Great beach view from room, too (but had to pay some extra for this). Cons:Very noisy a/c (which was not repaired), very noisy street (windows not very insulating; with open... More

I read the reviews and booked this hotel because of good rating... but was disappointed. The smell in the room is horrible, the same is in the wardrobe. The air conditioner is old and works too much noisy - impossible to sleep. If you open the window, the noise from the road and the ocean will not let you have... More

The hotel is in a great location, the beach is just over the road, especially the allowed location for children to swim. The scenary from room's window is remarkably good, we can enjoy beach scenary from it. The food from their restaurant is very delicious and the price is reasonable (cheap). It's also comfortable for late check-out, you can get... More

I come to this Hotel every month, not by choice. The beds are hard and short. They do have some things on the food menu that is good, for the most part i am sure you can find somewhere better to stay in Rio.
