We have just stayed at the Granada for 3 days as part of a south american tour. This hotel was fine for what we needed. It was modern, clean, decent showers, good breakfasts and friendly staff. It was noisy (but that's Rio for you) and it could do with better air con in the rooms.nice rooftop bar; small (very) pool... More

Stayed for a couple of days.was a big mistake. Lots of prostitutes and drugs outside.almost no police presence, they were possibly scared. Internet hardly working, so the staff and the waiters.... Much too expensive for what it (not) offers. Very decrepit,seedy and shabby area. I thought it was closer to avenida rio brnco but no....only the lapa arches with notorious... More

The staff at this hotel simply do not care at all about their guests. Not at all. It is also getting quite worn and tatty at the edges with need for a face-lift. It seems to sell it itself as a trendy city centre hotel but it really doesn't make the grade. Plus points are: New roof top area with... More

The hotel itself is ok, the rooms are clean and mine had a view of the "Christ the Redeemer" statue. However, the attitude of the check in clerk, Ivan, was obnoxious to say the least in spite of my family and I taking three rooms on the world cup final night (almost ten times the normal rate!). On the plus... More

This is a nice hotel, recently renovated, with a modern appeal. Rooms are quite big, clean, and comfortable. Bathroom is also really nice (no bathtub), spacious, and clean. Hotel staff is helpful, friendly, and professional. There's not many restaurant options around the hotel, but there's one good almost in front of it. Hotel also has restaurant for a reasonable price.... More

Very close to Lapa De Arch in Rio. Just 50m from happening night life in lapa. Rooms are clean and service is good. Break fast selection is incredible especially the range of fruits. Was expensive to stay probably because of FIFA world cup at the moment.

Checked In with a couple friends. Only stayed one night. I'm not sure where to begin to keep this review short. So my strong suggestion is to simply find and stay someplace else.

Nicely located in Lapa within walking distance of bars and restaurants. Bus to beaches goes from outside. The staff were helpful and efficient in organising taxis and recommending travel/trips. A standard hotel room that was very clean. The rooftop pool was nice for cocktails and a good view. Would recommend
