the receptionist didn't attend us very well. We traveled by bus and we were very tired, but the receptionist didn't give us any options to The room was large with king bed and big bathroom. the gym and spa is across the street (not in the hotel). In resume, I don't intend to return.

Barra da Tijuca is the place in Rio that grows the fastest. Not in terms of turisim - that is still Copacabana, Ipanema and Leblon - but in terms of business. Unfortunetely it’s a neighborhood that lacks hotel offers in the area of increasing demand. With this in mind, Bourbon Hotel is a fair option in Barra da Tijuca. The... More

Hello, BrazilAca. Know that it is a great pleasure to meet you. Appreciate the compliment by location, rooms clean and the infrastructure for business. On your next stay would recommend to ask for help to get our receptionists a taxi. Regards, Francisco Calvo, General Manager. More

Affordable for work or vacation (compared to other rio hotels). Walking distance to the mall. not walking distance to the beach but accessible by car/taxi. the building is a bit older and could use some upgrading. old carpet. no iron in room or the entire hotel. the gym is across the street (not in the hotel).

We had a room on the top floor, with an ocean view, and it was not outdated like some people write here. The room was large with twin beds, an armchair, cabinet, desk and chairs. Free wifi a plus when we stayed for 1 week. Bathroom was a bit small, but it was functional. The balcony is small, not sure... More

The whole hotel looks and smells worn out, despite being not that old. Stayed in one corner room. Good space, good bed. The bathroom was rather small, specially the shower booth - it is really uncomfortable to take a shower, even for a regular size person. Maybe central-front rooms are better. I will never know. It's a good location if... More

Spent eight days at this hotel. The problem is that very few people at the front desk speak English. But those who do are quite friendly. The elevators are tiny and a bit slow and the lobby is small but the rooms are big, especially the one where I stayed which had two beds and a large desk. Wifi is... More

We chose Barra da Tijuca to stay away from the crowded Copacabana and Ipanema area. The hotel is located in a residential "condominio" alongside the Avenida das Americas. It is a safe place with check points and security patrols in the night and it is very calm. The hotel is roughly 1 kilometer linear distance from the beach. However, there... More
