This was my third time to the hotel's bar. Seems to us, that the management team did not hire enough employees to work in 2022. My group and I waited one hour/half for the food and beverage service on the 1st of April. "April fool's day!" Vilson, Negueba and Chico were extremely nice, however with no success. Maintenance is clearly lacking all over the place. A nice bar and hotel, but you can find better options in Botafogo to have a bite.

Hotel's Favorite
We stayed in the Sugar and Bossa room and did not regret it at all. The view from this room was just breathtaking..it was good to see the 2 highlights of Rio at all times of the day from the room while in bed. The rooms are big and comfortable, very thoughtfully designed to feel like home. We were in room 1210, you have 180 view of both the sugar loaf and Christ the redeemer mountain, even the bathroom has the Christ the redeemer looking down on you! The staff at the front desk and the breakfast area are just the best! We had arrived in a red eye and were leaving late in the day, they were very accommodating and adjusted check in check out times accordingly. The location of the hotel makes it a quick ride to the Sugarloaf and Corcovado as well as a quick access to Botafogo neighborhood. The included breakfast is good. Highly recommend this hotel! They were very helpful in getting onsite RT PCR test for the flight home.

We had seen a travel video where the streamer had stayed in this hotel with a view of Sugar Loaf - we reserved a sugar loaf room immediately after! It cost a bit more than other rooms but it was our last night so we decided to go for it. WOWZA! I think we were upgraded to a corner view, as we had spectacular views on 2 sides. And the rooftop bar was amazing too, where you could also see Redeemer statue. We set the alarm to see sunrise and catch time lapse. And on top of the views, the staff were WONDERFUL and very, very helpful. Helped with a table for traditional Brazilian churrascaria, as well as with train tickets to Christ the Redeemer. We had struggled for days as we don't speak Portuguese, and there was always someone there who spoke English. Breakfast was included and very nice. Did I mention the views?

This hotel was a good choice for our first trip back to Rio after three years. The hotel is relatively small and has a boutique style to it. Our bedroom was a good size and nicely laid out with an attractive tiled floor and interesting ceiling design. We did not pay for a room facing the sugar loaf but even so, we could still see Rio’s other favourite monument - the statue of Christ the Redeemer. The hotel has a pleasant restaurant and bar. It is not big but is sufficient for the size of the venue. Part of the restaurant is a kind of sun room which was nice in the morning although I am not sure what it would be like in the full heat later in the day. Probably the best part of the hotel is the rooftop bar which has a fantastic view of Botatfogo beach and the Sugar Loaf. We had lunch and dinner here a number of times and you can also just relax with drinks if you prefer. There is a Small pool on the rooftop too, too with some loungers. It is not really suitable to swim a few lengths though. If you like to swim each morning this is not going to be for you. The staff were very helpful and attentive which is ultimately what makes a Good hotel. Deborah checked us in (early) and was very nice. The staff in the restaurant and bar were just as good - sadly I did not note their names apart from Renato. The hotel was clean and relatively quiet given the location. We experienced no noise at all from the road although the walls between rooms were a bit thin. Some facilities to make coffee in the room would have been welcome but overall this was a good hotel and excellent staff and I recommend it.

Superb hotel, with incredible views of Rio and Sugarloaf Mountain. The staff was very helpful, many spoke English and the food...oh my! I was in Rio for 5 days on business and tried the lunch and buffet, both excellent with plenty of selection, fresh and hot!! And the rooftop bar / resto was just amazing. Go for the grilled salmon salad, it was so good both times I had it I forgot to take a picture!

Breathtaking experience! Breathtaking view that is enhanced by the quality of the Bar. Renato was an incredible bartender, the best in Rio in my opinion! The variety, quality and his knowledge of cocktails is spectacular! I recommend the YOO2 bar and would gladly return!

When you think of Rio the first 2 spots that come to mind for a stay are Ipanema or Copacabana. Although Botafogo where this Hotel is located is not a walking distance to the 2 famous beaches it is a quick and cheap uber ride away. Me and my wife chose to stay here for the first leg of our Rio Trip and we were not disappointed. Yoo2 serves a delicious and plentiful breakfast included in the rate, staff are also cordial and helpful. However, the highlight of staying here was definitely the views. Our room had a view of both the sugarloaf mountain and the Corcovado. Waking up and opening your curtains to see all of that beauty was just mesmerizing. If you're not interested in paying for a room with a view don't worry, they have a rooftop where you can still experience all of it. The cost benefit ratio is excellent and the Hotel is super close to Santos Dumont airport (domestic flights)

Yoo2 Botafogo has one of the nicest rooftop bars in Rio. Fabulous drinks with great view to the SugarLoaf as well as to the Christ / Corcovado. Bartender Waguinho brought very creative choices to the drink menu. And the classic cocktails are also special. I tried Marcelus Negroni, a new version, this time with a special beer flavour. Good music makes the experience complete. Worth a visit when in Rio!

It is not a hotel it's a shame !! I needed a comfortable hotel close to work, but I preferred to change and drive for 30 minutes rather than stay there They don't even meet the standards of a 2-star hotel ! If we talk about the Manager we could write a book how incompetent is ? NO WORDS 😔
