Excellent moderately priced hotel for Rio de Janeiro. The hotel is modern. Very pleasant and comfortable rooms. I found my room to be very comfortable, modern, and very clean. The WiFi is free and coverage in the room was strong and fairly fast (I could stream Netflix). My booking included breakfast and the breakfast buffet was quite good with a... More

Comfortable room, nice breakfast, good service from front desk staff. Location is convenient if you need to be at downtown Rio or close to the Santos Dumond Airport. Good for business. Far from the beaches. Not very safe to walk around at night.

For a short stay, this was a good experience. We were particularly impressed by all of the staff but one of the check-in staff called Veronica was especially helpful. There is very good taxi advice (and other advice) on the My Rio Travel Guide. We used the yellow taxis called Aerocoop and Aerotaxi from the airport as they were half... More

The hotel is ten minutes' walk from the downtown area around the Municipal Theatre and five minutes' walk from the Santos Dumont (domestic) airport. Unfortunately the area between the hotel and the airport is not a good place to walk at night, although between downtown and the front of the hotel it should be OK. The rooms facing the airport...

This hotel is a good option for a one or two nights business trip. Rooms are nice and quiet; breakfast is more than enough for starting a day full of energy. My only complaint is related to Room Service: portions are very small and prices high.

We stayed here for 3 nights and bought the dinner and breakfast package at the time of booking. This meal package was excellent value as both lunch and dinner provided by the hotel were excellent. The breakfast consisted of almost everything you might expect at a breakfast and in attendance was a chef who made fresh omelettes to order. The... More

Stayed for a night on way back to curitiba. Rooms were new and clean and at a decent price. Hotel restaurant was good and enjoyed a lunch and breakfast. For main beaches etc you are a bit isolated though.

Had a wonderful stay in this hotel, room nice and dark with the black out curtains. The reception staff where very helpful, with directions and help getting about Rio. The hotel is in a quiet area next to the domestic airport, NOT the international airport as we found out which is 20k's away.
