Botafogo is not the most visited area in Rio de Janeiro, yet is very enjoyable and safe. I used many times this hotel, mainly for business trip, its location is very strategic, close to good restaurants, markets and to the subway. If you have a car it is a very good choice because they don't charge you any extra for... More

Similar level of service, quality of rooms and facilities you would expect in any Mercure. The hotel is well located in central Botafogo close to the Santa Marta favela, many good restaurants and within a short drive of the Rio beaches.

The hotel is that know quality of Mercure Hotels. But the breakfast was a disappoint. Low variety of fruits and juices for the price. A good point was the staff (very friendly), the clearness, the price, and the location.

I have stayed in many Accor hotels across the world, but staying in this Mercure Botafogo hotel was the worst one.

Very small room, but clean and everything worked. I liked the balcony, though no special view. Botafogo is a great area, and hotel is close to metro. Might stay here again. Staff varied: one charming young man who spoke good English; others diffident. No welcome drink. Good WiFi.

I use to be in Mercure hotel all the year for business travel, and I was disappointed by this Mercure hotel, which was not at the level I use to have : rooms not really clean, breakfast very "poor", air conditioner very noisy, no welcome drink knowing that I am Platinum LeClub Accor. So, I don't recommend this hotel.
