Mercure RJ Botafogo is ideal for families with children. The apartments are new and well equipped: safe, sink, microwave, minibar, and a service area. The hotel also have pool, playground and a small indoor pool you can use for kids. Hotel is near a shopping, Leme/Copacabana beach (5 minutes in taxi) and public transport (bus/metro). Recommended.

We spent two nights there. Breakfast is ok, but room service cannot be recommended. At 10p.m. we (family with two girls in the age of 9 and 14) only got a lasagne and two beers. We liked the two room appartment, but bathrooms would need a refurbish. Employees at the reception are very kind.

Stayed here for 2 days on our visit to Rio. Its a nice place for a short stay. They do have the facilities needed. Breakfast is nice and crisp with coffee and juice options. Rooms are nice with a small kitchenette. However, the bathrooms are really small. The shower cubicle is tiny. It is easy to get to metro stations... More

I like this hotel, it's location is close to the metro and a number of decent restaurants. The rooms are comfortable, have new beds and have desks to work at. All the amenities you would expect are in the room. The breakfast is passable but the coffee is very South American. Taxis arrive very fast. Worth the money

We stayed at this hotel for four nights during vacation in Brazil. Location is ok, a five minute walk to the nearest metro station and a two minute walk to a supermarket. Nice and quiet. Our room was great, good size and good quality, nothing to complain about. The wi-fi was great aswell. The pool area was not so inviting,... More

As everything in Rio de Janeiro, compared with other Brazilian cities, at same price I receive less quality or same quality at higher price. Positive: breakfast, entrance at 2nd level, big room. Negative: bathroom is old and not so clean, slow service.

Hotel is very well located, close to restaurants, near by the Lagoa. It has a good gym that I used, and the room is very spacious,, kind of a flat, small kitchen, living room and Queen bed. No tube in the bath, but generally good.
