After renting an apartment in the same street, I decided to stay one more week in Rio, so I booked this hotel, because it was next door of my rental, and I loved the neighborhood.
The apt. was nice, 2 rooms, a kitchenette with a strict minimum of kitchen utensils (but I was told that I could ask for whatever I needed), and I chose a view on a garden.They were having builders in the hotel, so I didn't take the Ocean view because it was too noisy. I asked to visit the penthouse and the deluxe rooms for next time, and they are very well decorated for an hotel of this class, and the view is amazing. I think it is a very good deal. Everything in Rio is very expensive, and if you are looking for a long stay, or are with family (I was alone), this is very convenient. I have been trying a few Mercure, lately, and I have, for the moment, never been disappointed.
The pool is very long but narrow and doesn't get the sun. But if you like swimming, the lengh is ideal and then you can have a sauna!
The wifi connection is acceptable, not very powerful depending on the time of the day, like everywhere in Rio.
So you can try this hotel, the staff is very nice!
