I was very apprehensive about staying at this hotel after reading some of the reports but was relieved to find that it was OK. Room OK, great breakfast, beach easy to walk to.and the staff were helpful when needed. My only real complaint was that the air conditioner was very noisy. Absolutely fine for a short stay.

The rooms are good, spacious and clean for a budget hotel. The location is great for shopping and the beach. We didn't have too much noise even though we had a room on the front but there is construction going on both sides of the hotel. The roof had a nice little pool with a good view of Christ the...

My friend insisted on staying at this hotel because the price was reasonable but anyone a bit smart knows that you get what you pay for! The hotel has a poor quality in all aspects: 1. Location: although just 3 blocks from Copacabana beach, the street in which the hotel is located is really noisy and has a lot of... More

Pleasantly surprised by this hotel - huge room, clean and equipped. Great breakfast, friendly staff. It was a little noisy, but we didn't experience the level of disruption as some other reviewers - slept through the night. Location is good for copacabana beach and the metro. It's not the copacabana palace, but it's convenient. Good for the price considering how... More

The hotel has a good accommodation, breakfast and location however the employees don't help the tourist to find a best deal to visit the city. They offer services with prices over the average and if you don't agree they treat you bad. The employees take advantage from tourist. Also they charge for wifi. As a Brazilian I am shame to... More

Your average 3 star hotel, it was clean and comfortable. No wifi, but great location near shops, cafes and restaurants and within walking distance of the beach. You can easily get to Ipanema for nights out or a quieter beach day. Breakfast was fine and we had no security problems. We stayed for 6 nights and were able to get... More

The Bandeirantes is a truly terrible hotel. I stayed there for two nights in May 2013. On both of those nights I hardly slept due to the deafening street noise coming into the room from the paper-thin windows. The air conditioning drowned it out, but was so loud itself that sleep was difficult anyway. The elevators are painfully slow, and... More

This place is poor. There are much, much better options in Copacabana. A good hostel would be much better than this hotel. The staff are very unfriendly and check out took forever thought the staff at breakfast were friendly They have no secure baggage storage they just tie up the bags in the lobby. Anyone could walk in so don't... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Bandeirantes on February 2013. We booked the hotel through a travel agency so we didn't have much of a choice, but were aware of the bad reviews the Bandeirantes has in tripadvisor. Most of all, we were afraid of having some of our things stolen, as some people have mentioned. We stayed at... More

I read the reviews about this hotel before my stay so I was prepared for the negatives given by the others, which i appreciated. The hotel itself is average, clean but outdated, the noise from the street sounds like you are sleeping on the curb and depending on which room you are in the AC can be noisy (it was... More
