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.

Nice hotel, new and comfortable. Located a walking distance from Santos Dumont Airport and very close to many downtown Rio business places. The one problem we found is that for dinnig out of the hotel you must take a taxi as the nice restaurants close to the hotel all close at night.

Nothing best in Rio for business trips, Nice and Clean, just a stone´s throw from the domestic airport, you dont need to get in the horrendous traffic downtown, just cross the bridge and there you are, with the advantage of keeping your luggage checked until returning to the airport. Good breakfast, nice spa.

Coming for the fist time to Rio was an challenge - if you don't know the city and really don't know what to expect - it is always quite difficult to find some perfect accommodation. We wanted to stay in good hotel but not in the centre of Copacabana or Ipanema, at least not for the all the time in... More

Awful! It is simply terrible when a hotel charges for the stay upfront, do not give you the invoice as well upfront and to worsen things offer a terrible stay.

We chose this hotel because we were part of a tour group. It is centrally located to all that Rio has to offer. It is a great alternative to the overpriced rooms of Copacabana Beach. Great breakfast buffet. The hotel also has a great priced dinner buffet. About $20 dollars USD. Good selection and variety. The hotel is located next... More
