Simple, but very comfortable rooms. Very helpful staff during our whole stay. Breakfast with a good variety of choices. Great location in Cabo Frio and an excellent base to explore the Lake District of Rio de Janeiro state. I would definitely stay at Hotel Marlen again.

3 stars. Nice service. Plain breakfast. Not so good coffee. Nice terrace. Good location. An average 3 stars hotel. But it's ok. Not so much to say about it. I will recommend for 3 or 4 nights. Not for a long stay.

The hotel is very simple, the building is old and so are the rooms. The bathroom is small. The parking is very small, so you have to order your car some time before you want it, so that they can manage to take it of the garage. The employees are sympatic. The breakfast is also simple, but the food is... More
