Novotel standard on acomodation. New hotel. Good maintenance. Good location for business if you need to go to city centre. Horrible restaurant : No wine available ! Some plates on the menu were not available !! Food was verry poorly cooked !!! What about the service ? Worst ever.

What to expect w this Novotel. Walkable to local airport. However, You will not hear any airport noise! Beautiful hotel. Great restaurant-atmosphere, quality of food and pricing. Clean and modern hotel rooms. The area aside from being close to the airport does not pack in any excitement. A little park, I believe an opera house which never appeared to be... More

It is a good option close to Santos Dumont airport and Rio de Janeiro downtown. New installation, clean, and a very honest price. There are only one issue and you must be pacient: breakfast! Dirty tables, lack of food and a big mess! Waiters are always trying to fix problems but it is a constant issue. Other than that it... More

Location is very good, close to downtown, business buildings and airport. The room was cozy, despite its size (not so huge). Bathroom clean and gadgets worked well (hair dryer and shower). Amenities ok. Although it's not included on the rate, there was a very good variety of items for breakfast. Hotel structure seems to be fine. Vallet parking service is... More

About 5 a 10 min from airport Santos Dumont, The Hotel is very clean, the lobby there is a pub, the service is nice, The park is about 35 reais and the breakfasts as well, the strong point about it is the room ,very sophisticate and the bathroom too relaxing, If I can I`d stay again there!

It is a very typical business hotel - close the curtains and you could be in any city on earth. The place could do with some redecoration, but overall no complaints. The breakfast was much better than I expected with a good range, and cooked to order eggs. Very convenient for the domestic airport. We walked it in the daytime... More

There are only a few good hotels in downtown Rio and this is among the better ones. Next to the airport and in a walking distance to the center you might consider this one if touristim around and beaches are not among your priorities.

Staying in Centro

Neighborhood Profile
Centro
Downtown Rio is the place where this city was born. With modern skyscrapers sharing space with historical buildings and landmarks, this neighbourhood is living proof that the old and the new can live together harmoniously. As you would expect, downtown is where all major companies house their offices. However, the region isn’t restricted to businesses. Gems such like the “Paço Imperial,” which is a cultural centre that used to serve as a residence for governors of Brazil, can be found here. Pedra do Sal, a Monday night street party, is also in this neighbourhood. This landmark is the birthplace of samba and is famous for its “roda de sambas” (“dance circles”). Stop in for one and get closer to discovering where Brazilian happiness comes from.
