I liked old-fashioned hotels. This one was built in the 50's during a time of happiness for Brazil. My room was on the 11th floor facing the small courtyard, so that it was very silent even during Carnival. Buy some drinks in a supermarket because those in the room's fridge are quite expensive (one beer 8 reais). The staff is... More

I was last at this hotel two years ago when they had begun renovations, so I expected a much better product this time. But I was very disappointed. I took two US friends to Rio for Carnaval and a place I had thought ok they were not pleased with, noting "it really needs some updating" (I took them there because... More

Definitely get an upper floor, Sugar Loaf View Room. Those seem to be a little newer. My room also had a few of The Cristo. Wonderful staff. Clean rooms. Nice bar with live music pretty much every night. Slow elevator. Slow wi-fi. Not the closest hotel to walk to other bars and restaurants, but easy cab ride; and close proximity... More

The hotel is located close to the subway, airport, Lapa, Copacabana, it is the perfect location to stay close and away from Copa during the holidays. The staff is very kind and they were very nice to me and to my friends. The breakfast is not the best, but it is not bad either. The only thing they need to... More

This is a budget option for stay. If you coming for vacation and won't bother with the hotel, it is fine. It is clean (no carpets, so good for allergic people), convenient location - although a bit scary at night, close to subway. No restaurants or entertainment around. Rooms are noisy, room service is 24hs but pretty much limited to... More

Very bad service and the food is average at best and overpriced. When checking out, had long line at front desk and was late for a flight. Tried to ask for a quick check-out or if I could be seen by someone else. Attitude of front desk hostile would not even acknowledge presence at first. Only response was I had... More

Rooms are large, but are quite noisy, you can actually hear what's going on in other rooms. Breakfast is just ok. The hotel is near a subway station and not far from downtown, but not recommended for wandering around at night, specially if you are a foreigner tourist. Few nice restaurant options nearby.

This is possibly overall the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. The lobby is marble and quite luxurious leading you to believe the same quality applies to the rooms... nothing can prepare you for the shock of stepping out of the elevator in to corridors with stained nylon carpets and black refuse sacks taped to door frames. We were... More

Absolutely disgusting staff attitude, paid the mini bar bill the night before check out and then charged almost double on check out of room which they wouldn't admit was there mistake. Dated rooms, building work all hours in the corridors and a buffet that serves off food. Do not stay here it's foul!!!!!
