Very nice hotel outside of the Copacabana and Ipanema strips. The decor gives off a trendy, urban feel, with a dope mural scaling the entire glass elevator’s walls! Great breakfast options and the roof top views of Christ de Redeemer and Pão de Acúcar are basically worth the entire stay! Only minus I’d add would be the rooms. They are a little on the smaller side but, I don’t think most will spend much time in them anyways! It’s a 5 for me!

This isnt any luxury hotel but the rooftop views are amazing. Dinner was pretty decent as well though a bit expensive. Several other restaurants in the area have better food. Overall no issues on my 4 day business trip.

Yoo 2 Rio De Janeiro is an amazing hotel with the most incredible view of the city. This hotel is filled with great amenities and atmosphere. Even, as an tourist this place made me feel extremely comfortable and welcomed. From the daily all you can eat breakfast Dinning, to the lively DJ party's weekend nights this place brings it. However, the best part about this hotel is the staff. All of the staff in this hotel is really helpful and friendly. Especial, Ricardo who helped me book a extra week in a fantastic room for a incredible price! Also, Deborah who made it easy for me to enjoy the area of Botafogo with great recommendations and easy directions. This hotel is a must if you plan on staying in Rio de Janeiro, 10 stars!! -Manuel

Loved this property! Young, hip, good service, amazing views, good spa services, perfect gym, excellent music and the list goes on and on. I stayed at the Bossa Nova room with Sugar Loaf and Corcovado... could not ask a more authentic Rio experience. The room had a bath tube with the view of the Corcovado (wow!). The hotel rooftop is awesome and it houses the pool, cabanas, a bar and killer views. Check out their Instagram and # tag to confirm. You will also get some good ideas of the best spots in the hotel to take pics from/of. I felt totally safe at YOO2 as the COVID safety protocols were observed. The hotel is located in the borough of Botafogo which is a very traditional section of Rio. Copacabana and Ipanema are about a 20 minute drive from the hotel. UBER seemed cheap so no issues on costs to go from one borough to another. It was safe as well to take UBER in Rio. There are plenty of great restaurants in the area for all levels of spending. The front desk was very helpful in recommending a few places for us. The music played throughout the hotel was the coolest. They had a DJ on Saturday and Sunday at the rooftop bar. The food at the bar was tapas style with typical Brazilian snacks. The restaurant was closed for sitting but you could order room service until 11pm which was very helpful. The staff was super nice and friendly. In summary, amazing stay and I will definitely be back at YOO2!
