We stayed for two nights with our children aged 11 and 8 in July 2014. The staff were charming, helped us with an early check in and always friendly and helpful. The room was good, with a view over the airport (but not noisy). The breakfasts were excellent, children ate free and there was always a great selection of delicious... More

Excellent, good smell, friendly attention, good environment, perfect location for business, near to domestic airport. Recommnedation for arrival is thru Santos Dumont Airport instead of Galeao International Airport.

I took my wife to a holiday to Brazil which involved going to Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo and Foz du Igauçu. And this hotel was the place we booked to stay while we were in Rio. The hotel itself is clean and the staff are very helpful - although most seemed to struggle with English which was slightly surprising... More

The hotel has a good location (right close to Santos Dumont Airport) and near to the city center. Very comfortable and clean. In my opinion is a little expensive, but all hotels in RIo de Janeiro are expensive too.

This is a good hotel for those looking to stay close to Santos Dumont airport. Not recommended for those looking to enjoy nightlife or beach in Rio. The hotel is nothing luxurious, but rather basic though hits all the important marks for a decent stay. Room is clean, no carpet but rather laminate floors which I prefer. Small but functional...

Travelling on business during the World Cup will probably never be "cost effective". I struggled to find a good option and the Novotel seemed like a reliable option, even though it was more expensive than what I had expected. The hotel was fine - good sized rooms with everything you would expect (except an iron, which is also not available... More

Booked this hotel during the world cup. The location in the financial district so there aren't any restaurants or bars in close vicinity. The room rate was highly overpriced even tough the world cup was going on. The personal were very friendly and helpful. We went to the hotel restaurant the first night and the food was really poor quality... More

Nice place, nice rooms, not all the people inside the hotel speak english, I think this is a minus talking about this place, the food is pretty good and the places you have near the hotel are good too, you can find some restaurants walking 5 or 6 blocks from there and they are cheaper than the hotel food.
