Do not make the same mistake that I did by booking a room in this hotel. There are many good hotels in Rio. Look in the Santa Teresa area instead, you will love it there. This area is bad and not advisable to go out in at night.

Dear Sir, Thank you for your evaluation. I agree that Santa Teresa is a lovely neighborhood, but as safe as the central area at night. As far as I know, the only hotel in Santa Teresa, is the five stars hotel called Santa Teresa. So just be sure where you will book your room. It will be probably a guest... More

This place is in a horrible location, Its not near the International airport but rather the local airport. It is dirty, the rooms are dank and filthy, the air conditioning doesn't work and people leave there doors open because its so small and hot. It is in desperate need of paint and I wouldn't be surprise if there is danger... More

Tiny rooms, dull breakfast and dull area, but relatively close to metro so it's easy to get to other locations. Hotel slightly dated but still in Ok condition. If you need silence in the morning you should ask for a room away from the street.

Booked two double rooms 2 months in advance but they did not have them when we arrived. Assigned a 3 person and 1 person rooms for the night. The 3 persons room was 5 feet from the busiest city street, door does not even close fully and has shutters with gaps; so it was literally like sleeping on the footpath... More

We were misled by the website and were forced to stay at this place because there was nowhere else to go. The neighbourhood is very scary, but the 'hotel' tops it up with some of the people who stayed. The stink and the noise was horrible, and we couldn't sleep at night with people coming in and out. My room... More

Dear Mr. T P, Our hotel is located in downtown, just 2 quarters from President Vargas Avenue, the most important avenue of Rio de Janeiro. Our neighborhood is included in the project "Porto Maravilha", and workers of Council of Rio de Janeiro are working in the streets near the hotel, so in this times, streets are dirtier than usual The...
