The hotel is well located, a 5 minutes walk away from Metro station. Copacabana is only 10 minutes metro ride away. Good connections for the rest of the city also (Corcovado, Pao de Acucar, center, etc). The rooms are not fancy, but decent , clean and cover all needs of a good stay. The air conditioning can be a little... More

With my wife we spent 4 nights in this hotel. In my opinion the hotel is really worth its price. Below list of advantages (IMHO): - very good location: easily you can reach this hotel from both International and Santos Dumont airports. Santos Dumont is just 2 km away from the hotel and from International airport you have direct bus... More

Pro: We traveled with a group of friends (50-60 years old) and everybody liked the location, the modern rooms, good breakfast, nice friendly staff, and at least one person with good English. The manager was very eager to resolve the problem with one of the receptionist. Cons: No AC on any floors, no AC in elevators, some rooms have no... More

The staff at this hotel is amazing! They all speak English and are super helpful! They make sure you have what you need. The hotel itself is nice and clean. Breakfast is provided every morning and is good. Would definitely recommend staying here.

Pluses:sleek,modern room;close to metro;friendly staff;tasty breakfast;a short metro ride to the must-visit area of Lapa. Minus:no windows in either the room or the dining room so feels somewhat claustrophobic.
