Stayed here during the Rio Olympics. Not too bad a location at anytime really. The Barra mall is just 400m along the street and offers a lot of good mid to high end shopping and food options. Hotel was clean and tidy and the staff were friendly and tired to speak english where they could. Breakfast and dining options were... More

During the recent Olympics I stayed at this hotel with a large group of other people who were working at the Games. The staff were exceptionally helpful, the restaurant served excellent food and the room I stayed in was clean and comfortable- all that was required. For relaxation there was a gym and pool and the hotel offered transport to... More

I spent two days in a business trip. The room was comfortable and clean. Room service and front desk are very good. The restaurant was under reform and was improvised in a big room, but not too fresh food. To pay attention to the mosquito in the room.

I have been at this hotel for approximately 3 weeks and the service in general is really bad. Out of 5 elevators 2 or 3 were always broken and the others not properly programed, had to consider extra 5 min every morning to wait for one. The trash is transported in the same elevators and they stink most of the... More

I spent 2 weeks here while working in Barra. First up, this hotel is so much better than where I stayed previously, so my views may have a lower starting point than others!

My wife and I stayed at this hotel in June 2015 for 5 nights. We attended a conference at the central convention center. Just to preface, there is absolutely no worries about safety in this area. This is an area with lots of high end international shopping outlets and some nice restaurants. This is like a suburb of Rio. There... More

While this is my third stay at this hotel within the past year, I notice a slow but steady decline in the status of this property. All services--restaurant, front desk, etc. remain very good, but the property itself (rooms, pool area) are looking a bit worn.
