1 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Got $300 stolen from my room. Hotel management's response - we cant do anything without evidence. Same happened to my friend staying in another room. Not what you expect from a hotel that is supposedly rated 4 star. Besides this, rooms are tiny & stinky. Bathroom is crappy and chairs and beds are full of stains. Stay away.

This is a nice located hotel, with big rooms, nice view and well maintained rooms. I used it many times during business trip in Rio de Janeiro and like it especially for the location. Very close to subway station.

Friendly staff. Room was nice. Breakfast was good. Other meals not quite as nice. I would recommend this hotel to others. A local map would have been nice (especially in English and other languages). There really was no bar, just a couple of chairs in front of some alcohol in the restaurant. Odd that the restaurant was closed between lunch... More

The hotel is dated and need a refurb but the room I had a suite was ok, a little small but the balcony was a great. I was able to sit out there a night with a glass of wine looking directly onto Christ the Redeemer. The staff were really friendly and the room although dated was spotlessly clean. The... More

Too bad I only read the reviews for this booking after getting to the "hotel". This is not a hotel, it is a cheap motel rather. 4.5 stars? I think not. As a business traveler I can safely tell other business people to stay away and book another place for their Río work travel in the city. Just like other... More

Been to Rio like twice a year for many years and do not manage to find an affordable hotel that I can also recommend. Those that cost up to EUR 200 or equivalent per night are the ones I can choose from and each I tried so far is outdated, in more or less desperate need of upgrading/renovation, very noisy... More

The room located on 2nd floor was comfortable and clean. However the presence of a Gas Station just next door to hotel, can sometimes means some noises should be expected even at late night.

Nothing wrong with the hotel itself. It's VERY old but ok if you are expecting a low 3 star category. The staff is very friendly, but that's all. Food in the minibar was expired, try to catch the toilet paper when you are actually using the toilet and you will get hurt, the cleaning service is horrendous - they didn't... More

A bit dated hotel but with spacious rooms, good beds, great wifi, good breakfast, great air conditioning. The view from the balcony is great towards Christ the redeemer. Bathroom may be a bit on the small side, swimming pool rather narrow. The staff is really kind and speak decent English.

As a business traveller, I have stayed at this hotel several times over the past 8 years and like its location away from all the expensive and hectic touristic attractions. Good breakfast buffet with a nice view to the Corcovado hill, very friendly staff and acceptable rates. I therefore recommend the Mercure Mourisco to folks visiting Rio.
