This hotel does not approach the basic service levels of up decent global hotel chain like Radisson. 1) do you want or need to use the internet for any reason whatsoever? Do not stay at the Radisson! I checked my download speed: 12.6 Kbps!!! Anyone old enough to remember dial-up phone modems remember the slowest speed in 1995 was 14.4... More

From start to finish you become very aware of the moral of the staff,it seems to be incredibly low. A smile or attempt at a hello is a rare sight. The staff on all levels struggle with basic English words(understandable perhaps for complex issues). The chamber maids are undertrained,understaffed and mediocre. The famous Smell is indeed awful, the entire hotel... More

I recently stayed in this hotel for two nights while attending a conference in another facility nearby. I was very disappointed for a hotel of this category. Several problems: - WiFi not working properly in the room. You could tell this was not just a problem of one room considering the number of people sitting in the lounge with their... More

I was apprehensive about this hotel having read several of the reviews and I am pleased to say that the overall experience exceeded my expectations. Our room was clean and while not overly spacious it was perfect for my niece and me. Yes there is a musty smell in the hallways but it seemed no different than some of the... More

I had a look at some of the reviews about this hotel as I consider the Radisson Blu to be a quality hotel where you are looked after very well, at least this is what my experience has been with Radisson Blu. I was surprised to see some of the reviews where hotel guests complained about the odor in hotel... More

I have stayed in this hotel a few times in the last four years and even if it's not the best hotel I always went back It went from being a Sheraton to being a Radisson and to be honest the only difference I noticed is the name. I enjoyed this hotel when it was a Sheraton and enjoyed it... More

The hotel is a quite large apartment hotel with 16 stories. Along with dozens of other similar hotels it sits along the several miles long beach in Barra, about 10 km south-east from Central Rio de Janeiro. All the apartments have a veranda that is cleverly angled so that all rooms have a view towards the sea. My room had... More

I'm here on a business trip and writing while I am still here. The rooms are well furnished, clean and modern. As other reviewers have said, the in-room wi-fi service is spotty. I have to fiddle with doing different things before I get connected almost every time. The swimming pool area is nice and a good place to sit and... More

Very good hotel. Certainly minor problems like accessing wifi but fast computers in lobby. Room was great. Clean and had everything. Service was excellent throughout the hotel. Breakfast very good particularly if you like bread and pastries. Overall would stay again.

Overpriced for the quality of rooms. The front desk staff and concierge were very helpful and pleasant and I would rate them highly. Our room was dated, the ceiling leaked leaving a slippery puddle on the tile by the minibar, which is disgusting and caused me to twist my ankle twice. The coffee wasn't replaced daily for the in room... More
