Basic hotel, basic rooms, basic service, basic location, basic food. Here you don't ask for more than a bed to sleep in. Total noise coming from every inch in the room even in the bathroom where you feel cars are moving above your head "not exaggerating, I swear", I heard the car moving above my head, and no explanation offered....

I chose this hotel as it was close to the bus station and I was just using it as an overnight stop. I knew it was not going to be brilliant but it was very disappointing. The reception staff were welcoming and spoke English but the hotel is next to a freeway and in Rio the traffic keeps going all... More

We stayed there for 4 nights. The room was clean, the beds comfortable, AC bearably loud, Wi-fi free of charge and mostly functioning. It says that hotel is "adult only", but we saw children there, could be due to hot season (FIFA World Cup). We did not notice any " adult activities", could be for the same reason. Breakfast buffet... More

A nice hotel in middle of nowhere...(-: Actually it's in a 10 - 15 minutes walking distance from the Sambodromo, and that's why we have chose it to stay an o/n... Rooms are nice (good a/c, bed as well). Breakfast was ok as well. It's a good hotel in the wrong place... but still not that far from the Metro... More

This hotel has been renovated and the rooms are good. Unfortunately, the management is not up to the mark and messes up very badly. We made reservations at this hotel as early as May 2013 and informed them that our group would arrive on a certain date and time in October 2014 and advised them that we would need dinner... More

Good hotel, would recommend if you don't want to stay and pay the airport hotel fee. Clean rooms and good hotel restaurant. Not a place to wander the streets or sightsee. Metro is pretty close. The receptionists do not speak English.

This is an excellent hotel in the wrong area! If you just need a very comfortable place to lay your head, and are happy to take a 5 minute walk to and from the Metro in daylight, and a taxi at night, then this hotel is ideal. If you want to stroll around at night and find pleasant bars and... More

We stayed at the Gallant during Carnival and enjoyed our stay. It is close to Estacio metro and actually walkable from the Sambodromo. Admittedly it is a love hotel, but the rooms are large, very clean, with air-con, we had a balcony, bathroom was a good size with hot water and I loved the big shower. Breakfast was yummy and...
