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 the hotel for only 3 nights and I can say that everything was ok. Yes, the rooms and furniture are outdated, but for the money we didn't expect much anyway. THE GOOD: the rooms are big enough, no triping on the luggage or stuff like that; the air conditioning, althoug really noisy, is a MUST in Rio if you wanna have a nice sleep; the location is great, only 3 blocks away from the Copacabana beach and near lots of restaurants, markets and bus stops; water pressure was great, the bathroom was clean and towels wee changed everyday. THE BAD: the walls are paper thin, you can hear EVERYTHING from the other rooms. From the bathroom you can even hear the person next door taking a shower; the "buffet" breakfaste us REALLY scarce, the coffee is bad, and the juices seem from last week; the elevator takes ages to arrive, and most of the time is packed with peapole so we ended up using the stairs most of the time, and we were in the eight floor !! THE UGLY: not much really, no coacroaches, no bugs, no hairs in the shower or anything like that, I guess we were lucky.
CONCLUSION: if you are in a tight budget and are only looking for a place to sleepd, definitely give this hotel a shot, but do not expect any type of luxury or comfort at all.
