Considering the excellent location (less than 2 blocks from Icaraí Beach) and the value of the day-rate, this is a good option if you just need a place to sleep. Breakfast is very simple. The room is clean and everything was working (TV, air conditioning, etc).

This was a very nice, small, functional hotel in Niteroi, a 20 minute ferry ride across the bay from Rio de Janeiro. Our room was clean and neat. A complimentary buffet breakfast is included in price of the room (the restaurant only serves breakfast). Hotel Village Icarai is centrally located in Niteroi, close to stores, bars, and restaurants. It is not a "fancy" hotel; but, it is a very nice hotel at an affordable price. It was the perfect location for our visit, during the Rio 2016 Olympics. We would gladly stay there again. Ours was a family of three Americans, traveling from the United States. What we liked most about this hotel was the staff. The personal touch provided by the hotel staff was "A+"! It was top notch! Specifically, I'd like to note the excellent service of Carlos, Diana, and Leon! They were very good at providing us with information about Niteroi, which casual first-time visitors might not know: where to find taxis, good restaurants in the neighborhood, convenient shopping, etc. We had the sense that they were concerned about our overall welfare while in the Rio area. Example: we arrived at the hotel well ahead of the normal check-in time, early in the morning, and we were very tired. "Nao ha problema!" ("No problem!") We were allowed to check-in early, at no additional charge, and go up into our room. That set the tone for our entire stay. My one small critique: by late morning, most mornings, the hot water in the shower was gone (until later in the day). That's it. Having lived elsewhere (in Africa and the Middle East) that's not such a big deal for me, personally. Some Americans might consider that a problem, in some cases. For my wife and I, that minor criticism with hot water was more than offset by a staff that had superior hospitality skills. Diana was the one person on staff who had advanced English skills; but, using Google Translate at the front desk computer facilitated translating all basic questions and answers. For those from the US seeking a small, well-run, friendly hotel, in a very convenient location (across the bay from the actual city of Rio de Janeiro), I would recommend Hotel Village Icarai very highly.

I liked the hotel, I would stay again. The service is friendly, the rooms are clean, although the bed was noisy and the air conditioner old, the tv was flat and new, cable tv, wireless for free, decent, not spectacular breakfast. The location is very good, in the richer part of Niterói, I felt always safe walking around at all times of day. The bus lines are close, and there is a convenient sort of restaurant in front of the hotel, with crepes, sandwiches, salads, ice creams and açaí.

When the hotel is not good, sometimes the staff can make a diference. It is not the case. A have never seen a staff so rude. The recepcionists, Aldo and Antonio, treat you like you are not paying for you stay. They make you feel like you are not welcome. When you meet the manager Sheila you understand why the recepcionists are so bad, she is worse. The rooms are not very good, the bed is not queen size nor king size, it is dwarf size or hobbit size. I not recommend it at all.
