The title says a lot, and so do the reviews of previous guests that I wish I had checked before hand. The room looked old and it was so small that it didn't have a place to set a hand carry bag to open it and get stuff out of it, the only option was the bed, so you would... More

I had a terrible experience in Mercure Botafogo when i was said by someone at the reception that i had to leave the room at 12hr and it was not possible to stay even if i had paid an extra charge. I have a loyalty card Silver and it means nothing for them. I will not stay there again and... More

After being in Manaus for 6 days we decided to fly to Rio for the weekend before our flight back to the states. The reviews about this hotel have been mixed so what I did was send an email directly to the manager (based on his responses here on trip advisor) and requested a renovated room and mentioned my concerns...

We went to the World Cup and were booked at this hotel with a group. Having read some of the previous reviews, we were prepared and hired a guide/translator. This helped with check-in, etc because there is definitely a language barrier. No one at the hotel speaks English. Upon check-in the staff was very friendly, but our room was not... More

Booked apartment for 3 nights to rest up and recover from jetlag before the world cup started. Room was tiny and did not have kitchenette as advertised. The room did not have towels and glasses for 2 people and we had to basically fetch them ourselves as there were no responses to our requests. We decided to do a day... More

Some rooms are double and huge, with two bathrooms and a living room connecting both bedrooms, excellent option for large families or groups. Even the smaller rooms are still big. Excellent location, but you may find some traffic jam on rush hours. Excellent breakfast with many options and nice gym. Very nice and courteous staff.

Upon arrival they did as if they knew nothing and gave us the worst room i have ever seen in my whole life. Room was dirty, molded, outdated, aircon not working properply and of course nothing like the pictures they put on their website.... More

After reading some of these experiences, I decided to call the hotel in advance, to ask if I was going to have any surprise charges. They said they would charge me again for the taxes that I had ALREADY paid for, and were included in my package. After many calls, they decided these were "different" taxes. Thank god I had... More

Booked 6 nights via lastminute.com. Arrived on Sat 15th Feb for late checkin. Arrived at desk and there was no one there. Security guard could not speak English and we don't speak Portugese or Spanish but somehow realised there was a separate reception on the 2nd floor. Receptionists are very friendly and helpful but a major language barrier. Breakfast was... More
