The hotel is simple and a bit dingy. The staff is nice but unhelpful. The problem is that an entire homeless family lives near the entrance of the hotel. They lie there,they urinate and defecate there and they are rather aggressive. I asked the hotel staff manager (Jose I think..) why they do not do something about it and I... More

The hotel is in the Flamengo area of Rio de Janeiro. The area is very pleasant and relatively safe. The room was OK. Nice lobby and very good breakfast. Staff helpful. Good communication by public transport. Metro station Largo do Chamado is a few minutes walk and the seaside road is even closer where buses can be found to all... More

Run away !!!! It is such a bad bad bad hotel and from the dinosaurs edge ! It is so old, the rooms have an horrible smell, and it is just impossible to sleep with the noise of the conditioning air. But worst, the breakfast is far from being good and the personals are not sympathetic at all. We also... More

I stayed here with a group tour. I thought that with a group tour and carnival on that the hotel would have planned for security. I ended up with a room mate that allowed two people that had purposefully not booked a hotel to sleep in the bathroom of the room. We woke up to surprise squatters in our bathroom... More

Hotel rooms a small,dark and the air conditioning is basic at best. The beds are incredibly small. Hotel staff are not very helpful and will give your room key to anyone who asks for it. Bathrooms are old and not very clean. Lobby area and lounge areas are not air conditioned. Wifi is really slow and hard to get onto... More

Needed a hotel well located and not expensive (difficult task in Rio) The room, towels, bathroom and bed linen were ok and clean. The best thing about my stay was the breakfast, many options (fruits, juices, breads, cakes, etc) and included in the rate. Though it's not a new building, it`s well preserved. Really nice experience if you don't enjoy... More

Had the misfortune of booking this place in a 'mystery' hotel deal. It was really dated and smelly, and the room was airless with a spongy bed and smelly bed cover that had obviously not been washed in a while. A mosquito had been squashed against a wall leaving a bloody smear. You had to pay extra for internet, the... More

We booked through hotels.com and were promised a 'balcony view' but instead our window faced a concrete wall, in a corridor of more concrete walls, barely 3 feet from our window. Having said that the staff are friendly, the lobby is a genuinely nice art deco lobby and the breakfast is good, together with the shower. And we paid appox.... More

The hotel nestles in possibly Flamengo's most pleasant street, well placed for the park and beach as well as getting around to all the major sites. It is undeniably in a bit of a time warp, but that is part of its charm. Some fellow tripadvisors' criticism of its charges seems not to appreciate that this modest hotel is situated... More
