Originally built about 1995, the hotel was renovated about one year ago. The rooms are small but clean, the air conditioning is noisy, but the hotel area is fairly quiet. Close to the Metro, Flamingo Beach and some shops and restaurants, the hotel is less expensive than the hotels on the major beaches. The breakfast provided is outstanding with a... More

I booked this place a month in advance with a good discount (15%) through booking.com. It's on a quiet one way street (runs from the beach esplanade back to town) in the Catete neighborhood, part of Flamengo. We were well received by an enthusiastic concierge who spoke good English and made sure we were happily settled in. Only snag here... More

Hotel very very noisy. The AC : Can not use it at night because of the noise . Friendly staff but too old hotel ! 7 night in this hotel... it was hard. Poor breakfast, large rooms but you can not have a rest because of the noise of the street : windows are not isolated (acoustic)

We stayed there 3 nights in a family room. We had two twin beds and 1 double bed. Their twin beds are little bigger than the twin beds in the US. Double bed was more like a king size bed and it would even accommodate 2 adults and a small child. The location was ideal as there were 2 subway... More

The hotel felt modern and well maintained, the receptionist were always... More

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

It was an average hotel. The room was small the location not so sure if it was excellent. I guess on my next visit to Rio I must stay in a hotel on Copacabana so I will feel the rhythm of the city. I must ad though that the staff were nice and helpful but not all were speaking English.... 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
