Clean and basic, no frills hotel. Good breakfast and good location (Centro). Decent prices (inflated due to Olympics when I was there), and I enjoyed my little balcony. I'd have liked another blanket for the bed and the WiFi is dodgy at best. Nice, helpful staff. Architecturally interesting building. Very basic - bed, TV, soap, towels, beer/soda vending machine, breakfast.... More

We stayed here during the Olympics so prices were vastly inflated, but for the regular rate this is a fair option for Rio. On the plus side the rooms are clean, the staff friendly, and the showers good. However it gets VERY noisy with the nightlife on a Fri/Sat night, such that all but the heaviest sleepers will struggle (ear... More

The Hotel Carioca is a no frills hotel right in the Centro region of downtown Rio. First to deal with safety - it's in a big intersection right across from the police station so you feel safe and I was completely fine walking around during the day time. It's about a ten minute walk to the Carioca Metro Station, the... More

Friday and sathurday night you hear a lot of music because there are some clubs in the neighbourhood, but for us it wasnt a big problem. The breakfast was good. Bread, egg, ham , cheese , coffee and some juices. We really enjoyed having our own bathroom... More

Location: Hotel Carioca is in downtown Rio (Centro) which is their financial district. The hotel is right across a police station and is honestly a 2 minute walk to Rio's nightlife. When I say nightlife, I mean on Fridays and Saturdays the music and noise from the crowd below will go on till 5am. If you don't sleep well with... More

The hotel was easy to find in a great location in Lapa. My wife and I felt very safe the whole time. Although you need to use common sense like you would in any other international city. The hotel was very clean, and had a great breakfast. The food was very fresh, and delicious. You can the 'statue of Christ... More
