Stayed here for over a week during the world cup. While not in the main tourist areas of Rio, Copacabana is an easy 10 minute bus ride away, and there is also a subway stop nearby. Lapa is also walking distance away. RIght outside the hotel there are several eating options, plenty of bbq'd meats, rice, bean stew, chips and... More

In town for the World Cup final. The staff was super friendly and more than willing to give advice and recommendations. The breakfast was wonderful. Near a subway stop and large bus depot. Downtown with plenty of eating options and walking distance to clubs and nightlife. The wifi was consistent enough to make me happy but it did go in... More

Arriving late at night, you walk down a lane way past homeless people sleeping on the pavement. When you get to the Hotel, the staff couldn't be bothered to acknowledge you. Once in your room, you realise the homeless moved out so the hotel can rip off World Cup visitors with dirty filly smelly rooms. Had to roll up my... More

Stayed here for the world cup, as this was one of the affordable left over hotels in town. Hotel is old and not renovated. Windows have an opening at the top which leaves the noise in from neighbourhood. Yes the breakfast is better than the room, but is it good? Don't think so. A lot of homeless sleep in the... More

We stayed here during world cup. Location is great as in centre of Rio so can get to brilliant nightlife area whilst having easy access to metro for beaches. The staff are so helpful. I can't praise them enough. They spoke a little English and couldn't do enough for you. Breakfast was plentiful with lots of fresh fruit

Good quality hotel with easy access to Metro. Staff are fantastic. Spacious room with very good air-con. Great breakfast with lost of variety to get the day started well. Very good WiFi. Can be a little noisy outside on a Friday night but this is Rio! Restaurants close by with lots of variety of food and walking distance to Lapa... More

I stayed here for five days - would have left early if not for the prepaid reservation over the World Cup period (red flag: they also make you sign a statement about not checking out early when you check in). Of all the various staff we encountered during our stay, about 10% could be bothered to acknowledge guests, maybe 5%... More

We were looking for a near-to-downtown hotel and that is what we found. If you need to be in downtown this is a very good option. It is right next to the Cinelandia Metro Station. What I liked the most was that the breakfast service was outstanding. The thing that I did not like at all was the surrounding street... More

Stayed at Itajuba for a week after moving from a very dodgy Hotel which was almost the same price wise but in rough neighborhod. 24 Hour door men and step out right into the heart of the city's Centro District in Rio De Jeneiro's Downtown. Walking distance to Many Consulates and only two minute walk to American Embassy. Loads of... More
