The hotel Praia Linda is the perfect accommodation for a long weekend on the beach. You are just few meters away form the beach and surrounded by different facility . The room are simple and comfortable no extra deluxe, but who need that when you have such a beachfront and the sea!!! Value for money, delicious breakfast and the staff... More

A no frills, value for money hotel at the best location in Barra beach. Clean rooms but musty smell, good bed, lots of chairs, clean spacious bathroom with faucet and best beach views. Excellent free wifi and decent breakfast. Staff friendly and can manage some English which is a big thing in Rio. Could do with some makeover, better TV,... More

I chose this hotel for a three-day stay in Rio as I wanted to stay close to my friends in Barra da Tijuca. The location is indeed very good, as the hotel is just across the street from the beach and within a walking distance to dozens of restaurants and bars. It is a great place to stay if you... More

Stayed here while attending a conference at the Windsor Barra (about 15 mins walk away). Much cheaper than the other beachfront options and perfectly adequate. Friendly staff, reasonable breakfast, room was fine, internet worked. Wouldn't rave about it, but no complaints. We found a bunch of cheapish/nice places to eat 3 blocks further east on Av Olegario Maciel.

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.

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

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
