Hotel is in a safe area of Rio, with a supermarket next door and a number of restaurants on the same street, with shops and cafes on a parallel street. Disagree with a previous review saying the beach is too far away, it's less than 10 minutes walk away and well worth it once there. Friendly staff, not great at English, but willing to try and better than they think they are as everything worked in the end. Rooms have an old feeling and need some attention. I stayed in two different rooms as my work trip had a stay in Sao Paulo in the middle of it. Luckily both rooms were at the back of the hotel, so noise from the front was limited. Despite that, the walls are quite thin, so noise is never far away, and the air conditioning is probably even noisier than the bar across the road. Breakfast was a nice buffet, plenty of options including some nice fresh fruit. Can also order scrambled and fried eggs (in English seemed to work). Wifi worked fine and was free.
As others have said, this is not the cheapest hotel in the word, and particularly in relation to the quality of the rooms. Yes, you can even stay in a modern Ibis in central Sao Paulo for 100Reals less per night (as I did), but the cost of staying in Barra is generally very high compared to most places that I've visited.
