I only spent one night during a transit while travelling in Brazil, but the experience was very positive. The hotel is well located, near Santos Dumont Airport and walking distance from the city center. Room is confortable, breakfast very good and staff friendly.

Hotel is very well-located (5 minutes walk from local airport - Santos Dumont) and close to the city center, very neat and clean, staff is helpful and overall quality of stay was high. Definitely a place to stay when in Rio de Janeiro.

Because we liked the Novotel Santos Dumont on our last trip two years ago (see previous review), we decided to stay at this hotel again on our trip to Rio this year. We arrived on the international airport and last time there was a ticketbooth to buy fixe price tickets for regular taxi's. We couldn't find this booth, so we... More

We stayed here for one night before flying out of Rio. The hotel really modern and everything is clean and well maintained. We ate at restaurant which was fairly good, although service could have been more attentive. We arrived fairly late on a Sunday night and I didn't feel that I would want to walk around outside the hotel after... More

When travelling on business I often fly in and out of Rio to save money and use it as a base to fly to other cities. The Novotel at Santos Dumont is perfect for this especially for UK flyers. The BA flight arrives light in the evening to the international airport. Quick cab to Novotel, settle down for the night... More

The hotel was of an excellent standard and very clean. We were welcomed very warmly and professionally. Although we arrived at midnight when most of the rooms were taken, we were accommodated as best we could be when we asked for a high floor with a room facing the airport (we'd read on tripadvisor this was the best position in...
