Upon arrival they told us that it was a double friend and our female friend had to leave. Into rio centro at 1am in the morning, with all of her... More

I stayed at Rio's Presidente Hotel from 16 to 21 June 2013. My main reason for going to Rio was the Confederations Cup, the football tournament of Confederation winners. I was forced to find a hotel in the Centro area because the hotels on the popular beach areas of Copacabana and Ipanema were fully booked. I was also on a... More

Mortified on arrival when shown to my room. Very small with dirty grey blinds at the windows. Couldn't open them because the neighbouring building was so close I was overlooked by about 10 dwellings. The bedding was clean and the bed comfortable, unfortunately there was no hot water in the bathroom so had a cold shower. The following morning I... More

I spent a whole week at Rios President for business and this was the worst hotel that I have stayed. The room was dirty and dusty. The room is noisy, I could heard every single person that took the elevator. The breakfast has several options, but all has poor quality and the service is bad. Actually I'm at Rio de... More

If you´ve been to 3-4 star hotels in Rio you already know that they don´t come close to first world standards. Rios Presidente is an average Rio hotel located away from the beaches in a not so nice area but it´s very close (200m) to Lapa, the party area of Rio. The nightlife and restaurants are unmatched anywhere else in... More

I was at this hotel for maybe 15 minutes in total and and it was 15 minutes far too long. I made the mistake of going for a walk around the hotel area and did not feel comfortable at all. Homeless, shifty looking people wandering about everywhere and a strong stench of urine on the streets. I didn't feel safe... More

The first night we arrived at the hotel (me and my wife) very tired and there was this gentleman at the reception who had some troubles speaking English, however he and the bellboy managed to change our room with a less noisy one (in the first one there was powerful humming of the nearby AC chillers even with the windows...

I want to write a review of this hotel because it stuck in mind as one of the worst hotel experiences even if it happened long ago. We found the room quite dirty, smelly, almost every detail was broken or in a poor state. Windows and blinds were a joke, looked like they have been roughly re-painted decades before without... More

Ok rooms, except no fire alarms nor emergency exits. Unfriendly staff (except the reception). Unsafe area (got robbed at noon close to the hotel). Pricey compared to what you get.
