Check in process was poor and very disorganise. Given me the wrong room twice and I had run down to the reception twice. Wifi was not consistent. At times it was good and during the day and night was quite poor. Breakfast and location was very good. Nightlife area and close to santa Teresa. Room was spacious and nice

I always stay in Lapa when I have a short stopover in Rio because from there you get to Galeao quicker and better than from copacabana . If you just want it simple and efficient and low price , this hotel is it. You fall out of the hotel into lapa nightlife and gastronomy, with restaurants like Belmonte and mestre...

On arrival in Rio, my taxi driver expressed surprise that my business had booked me the Arcos Rio Palace, mainly because of the area it's located in, Lapa. I read many reviews on here that described it as "bohemian". I'm sure it's interesting, but the advice was not to walk around alone after dark. Anyway, on to the hotel itself....

Nice clean room, poor breakfast, friendly people, poor english speakers like the most of brazilians. Very nice neighborhood for nightlife with bars with live music and great food and drinks but also weird people.

Arcos is, as expected an old hotel located in the bohemian streets of Lapa. The locations is full of bars, dance clubs and restaurants. Lapa is an awesome place to visit in Rio, specially considering nightlife. It is rather distant from the top beaches, though. Since it is a bohemian venue, expect to find some prostitution happening around the hotel....
