This hotel has focus on business trip or short weekends trips. Its not a family resort. The hotel is clean and suits the needs of a business traveler but it doesn't has the newest facilities. The gym is not well equipped and the restaurant is not top of the line. The location is good, but you will need a taxi... More

The hotel is well positioned in Barra de Tijuca. Quite area and next to the main road driving to Rio de Janeiro city center. Nearby is having several shopping mall. Definitely suggested for business trip.

I used to stay quite often at Transamerica Prime in 2012-2013 for business purposes and in Jul-2016 I stayed once again. It has practically not changed.

The hotel location is relatively good for those ones that are not mainly looking for staying by the beach and need to be at Barra for a business reason. The room I stayed at (409.2) had an often bad smell and a noise everytime after you flush the toilet. Other than that everything else was alright, including the breakfast and... More

Rooms were large and airy. However, service is absolutely subpar for an establishment in this price range. One of the front desk attendants flat out refused to order me a cab, lazily giving me a list of numbers and asking me to make the call myself. Another one simply said they don't give out "medicine" to patrons due to potential... More

Coming from Rio, with it's busy life and crowded streets, going to Barra, it is quite relaxed. It is walking distance to the beach. there is a sort of ferry taking you over a small canal, to reach the beach. Beaches where empty, but there are a few small local places where you can get a drink or beer. Friendly... More

It has a sort of infinity pool, which is not quite infinity but is a decent pool. The food is not quite up to the standard of the price asked. Honestly, if you travel business, is ok, but for relax and leisure I would search for something else.

The hotel, room, service and amenities were nice. Most of all I liked the region. In Barra da Tijuca there are no slums and the streets are very quiet. Two blocks from the hotel there is a supermarket. To get to the beach you need to walk a block, then cross a canal on a catamaran (free for Transamerica customers)... More
