We stayed in this hotel 2 nights for our RJ trip. Oh it was very lovely. We were amazed by the room view (the room with Pan de Azucar&Cristo monument view). It was big enough and bathroom was good! The staff were very helpful and kind, with a good attention. Breakfast was good enough. The location is very cool, you can also go for a walk at night around. If you’re tired you can also try room service to eat, because the kitchen is good! The terrace was great, the pool is very tiny but works. We definitely recommend this place to stay in!

The stay in the hotel itself was good. The location of the hotel, the view and the rooftop bar are definitely pretty nice. But they booked more money than confirmed during the booking process from my credit card account. Being intrusive by complaining at the check-in, again complaining at the check-out and again complaining by Email afterwards only led to the promise that they are willing to pay me back the money by two different staff persons. After 6 months now, still nothing happened, I got no response to my last Emails asking for the status. So the service seems to be pretty good at doing shiny stuff, but not at doing basic work. Maybe an important information for german guests, all my Email sent from gmx.de were filtered out by their mail server. Gmail worked well.

This is a wonderful hotel, we couldn't have been happier with our stay there. It has beautiful views, especially from the roof terrace, a nice pool, clean and well-designed rooms, excellent breakfast, friendly staff and it's in a great location.

Great location, clean/comfortable room. The pool/rooftop area is cool and good breakfast. Thatiana (Receptionist) was so helpful to both me and my friend. The fact that we both checked in separately and both mentioned how amazing Thatiana was says it all. Thatiana arrange carnvial tickets and bus transfers for me with such ease. Every single time we walked past reception we were greeted with a warm smile and there was always such a keenness to help throughout our whole stay. Our expectations were exceeded for sure. If ever in Rio again, I would not stay anywhere else! :-)

I regularly come to Rio de Janeiro for business purposes, and have chosen the YOO2 as best hotel to stay at during these visits. Rooms are spacious, practical and always maintained clean. The hotel rooftop is such a relaxing area where the view is incredible and the cocktail quite tasty. The interior design with its modern street paint gives the hotel some personality; different from a dull looking, plain and impersonal hotel. But to me, what really made a difference is the quality of the services and the welcoming staff. Here are a few names that I remember (Ricardo, Déborah, Daniel, Tati, Jade, Rafael).
