We have stayed at this property several times over the years. From the very beginning when it was a Sheraton and a few times since it became a Radisson. The highlight in terms of service is definitely the reception, and this has been the case from the start. The breakfast buffet is slightly better now but service is somewhat spottier.... More

Stayed at the Radisson Hotel which is situated in affluent Barra. The hotel is located on the road that runs parallel to the beach but it is about half an hour away from the main tourist places (Christ the Reedemer, Sugar Loaf Mountain, Botanical Gardens etc) The rooms are comfortable if a little dated, all have a kitchenette with microwave,...

I have stayed at this hotel for the past five years, but this was my first stay since it changed from Sheraton to Radisson. The hotel looked the same, great pool location, rooms nice small apartments with large balconies, still in need of a bit of TLC as the rooms are a bit worn. However, what struck me was after...

Formerly a Sheraton property, the Radisson Hotel Barra Rio has a nice initial presentation. The lobby is well appointed and uncluttered. The reason for the less-than-stellar review is the guest rooms, which are overly humid - in spite of the air conditioner and in room dehumidifiers. Upon entering, the room has a definitive "damp and musty" odor. (Our party was... More

I just wrapped up a three night stay here, and I was overall pleased with the Radisson. There a few areas that need addressing, but in general I had a pleasant stay. The positives: - Beach is great, and even though location isn't directly on the sand (it's across a fairly busy street) you don't lose much of an oceanfront... More

So, I booked this hotel based on my Club Carlson points and not really taking into account that I would be spending most of my time in the tourist areas or doing touristy stuff. This hotel is very far from Ipanema Beach or Copacabana. The hotel is in a more 'locals' area with not the best access to restaurants or... More

I don't know why people write some negative comments about this place but I found it to be a nice 3 day stay. Staff were pleasant enough and know the area & Rio. They are not overly friendly like the Philippines, Bali or Thailand but still they provide a warm, friendly, Brazilian style hospitality. It's a long taxi ride to... More
