The experience that I had at the Novotel Santos Dumont was amazing. From the food, to the comfortable room and the incredible crew of people that work there. Joana was so kind, helpful and went beyond great service every time that I asked her for assistance with tour options and taxi cab. Mayion and Ana Cardina where very kind and... More

Very comfortable, quiet and clean hotel. It's from a big chain, so that's what you'd expect from it. Nice variety on the breakfast and amenities in the bathroom. It's closed to the SDU airport and I'd not recommend it if you going to Rio as a tourist because of the location, unless of course you are getting a great special... More

As a bussines hotel dont expect much more then a good place to sleep. This hotel is confortable and you will find all you need for a bussines trip. Not a problem to go with the family. Breakfast was good and staff was great. It gets cheaper on the weekends.

During Carnival one can get desperate for a good hotel at a good price....we found this hotel exceeded our needs and was just overall terrific. Located in the business district about 2 blocks from the Metro the hotel offered a great breakfast, a clean and comfortable room and the BEST front desk service. When I had difficulty getting Carnival tickets... More

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.

We had requested and were allocated a top floor room at the end of the corridor which faced the Airport Runway and the Water. It was thus quiet, as we... More

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...
