We stayed at Hotel Monte Castelo for a few days while exploring Rio. The hotel is in a quiet, safe area and about 5 min walk to the next metro station. The room was clean, a bit small but still okay. The windows went from the bedroom and from the bathroom out into a shaft but it wasn't too bad... More

I wanted to stay in the heart of a residential area to live and learn another culture. I was unsure of my choice here at first, windows wide open, no screens, a bit plain, dark hallways. Coming from the US we are spoiled and picky. As the day and week went on I fell in love with this hotel, the... More

Stayed here for two nights. The rooms are very small, the door hits the bed as you walk in. Ditto the bathroom, the basin almost hangs over the w.c. and you need to negotiate around the w.c. to reach the shower. The bathroom door is a sliding affair as there is no room for a proper door. There was a... More

This is a plain hotel suited for those who are not interested in Rio's beach-life culture but, most of all, want to pay less for accommodations in one of Brazil's most expensive cities. The hotel is within walking distance from Gloria subway station making it easy to go to major attractions in town. It's also safe to walk around and... More

Our whole family stayed in Rio for 7 nights and Hotel Monte Castelo was a really good value for a good area in Rio. The staff was very nice and tried to speak english (or even showed us a bit around, which was really nice!) The rooms were quite good, even if it wasnt the cleanest. For the money you... More

The room is really tiny with an even smaller shower room. Ground floor room was a little noisy but still ok. Breakfast was okish, nothing special. Diner is also very small. Access to main road and public transport was good but street was a little dodgy, didn't really feel safe walking home at night.

We went there for one night during our transfer to Ilha grande. The price is pretty high considering the room that we got ( small, underground with a window that you can not really open as it is in the corridor). When it is hot, you can get any fresh air in. The shower space is small and you can... More

Good hotel, clean, close to a subway station and also to the Lapa neighborhood. The rooms are simple, the bed is just ok. The breakfast doesn't have many options but is enough. The price is the most attractive characteristic.

It was a great location, right downtown, only minutes from Lapa and the Saleron Stairs. Excellent if your trip to Rio revolves around downtown. It's also close to the metro station, so it shouldn't be difficult to get to the beaches (the metro is very efficient and fast). The staff was super friendly and nice, and eager to help us... More
