This hotel lacked style, class and cleanlyness. we were charged for everything, from someone coming to fix the airconditioning to the cleaning of the room, which I thought it would be included in the $699. per night we were charged. shower had mold.

Everything is from the 80's. - The decor the furnishings the elevator the doormen. Rooms smelled, not bad, but old. It's described as elegant meh. Maybe in the...you guessed it...the 80's. We overpaid soooo much for this place but it was for the WC so can't really harp on that too much. The staff was nice and helpful. Cleaning staff... More

Booked the hotel last minute as we decided to head to Rio for the end of our World Cup trip. Check in was easy and the front desk were helpful with getting us a room quickly in a full hotel. The rooms look like college dorms. Moderately clean. The bathroom was filthy. Sheets were like paper. The mattresses were as... More

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Premier for two nights during the world cup. I tend to agree with the other reviews that the hotel is very antiquated, however it was still clean - no frills but a decent hotel to stay at. Unlike the other reviews, I found the staff to be very helpful and kind - especially... More

To the owner: we really don't understand how can you keep the receptionist (old, white hair) in your staff... He is the most unwelcoming person to a very nice hotel... He completely ruined our stay with his attitude, we felt completely disrespected. He does not understand anything about online booking, very slow, aggressive and disrespectful.

Stayed here for two nights last week. Got to hotel around noon and was able to check in right away. The staff seemed nice and pleasant to deal with. The location is great, not on the beach, but only a few blocks away, never went to the water since I live on Miami Beach, so no need to. The metro... More
