I stayed in the Granada on a recent business trip. I've used other Hotels in the Lapa area before but this was by far the best. The Hotel is modern , the air conditioned rooms are clean ,spacious and quiet. The restaurant offers a good choice of buffet style lunch and a varied menu for dinner which is reasonably priced....

I stayed in the hotel in February. What a wonderful hotel and location. Very convenient to historic areas and shopping. Away from the beaches, which is what I wanted. Clean, comfortable, with friendly staff. Great food also. I ended up having dinner there twice. Breakfast was quite elaborate.

Good choice, minutes from domestic SDU airport and downtown, at the heart of bohemian Lapa surroundings. Convenient compact1q swimming pool and academy at the top floor with no one to bring you towels ot drinks. Noisy and ineffective air conditioning at the room.

There is a lot to like about the Hotel Granada, despite its location in an allegedly unsafe neighbourhood. Firstly, the hotel staff was helpful, friendly and spoke English. Secondly, our spacious superior room featured a separate lounge area, which allowed plenty of space to relax in. Thirdly, the luxurious bed was the most comfortable that I have ever slept in,...

The electronic key to our door didn't work. We checked in very late so thought we'd leave it till morning to sort it out . It wasn't ever fixed so each time we went out we had to wait at reception until they found the device and a spare person to open the door. Staff at front counter answer the... More

I stayed in Granada Hotel in Rio during the World Cup in June 2014. The hotel location is good as it's close to a number of historical sights, but not to the beach, it took me approximately 15-20 minutes to get to Copa Cabana by taxi. The room was ok, clean and comfortable, but still small. Everything in the room... More
