The hotel is good overall. Room size is excellent and the furniture comprises a working table and balcony. Internet is good and free to access in rooms. Bed is large and confortable, shower is nice. The location, inside a condominium, makes it quiet. Breakfast is good (fruits, eggs, juices, milk, coffee, cakes, cereals, breads, cheese, etc). Staff is attentive. However, Barra is completly far from the city center and getting to it is very expensive by taxi. There´s no metro nearby. It took me more than a 1 1/2 hour to get to Botafogo Beach (rainy day) and 50 minutes to Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon (rush hour). Consider renting a car if your purpose is to visit turistic places (in my case, I went to a Congress in Barra da Tijuca). Be careful with taxi fees, mainly when you arrive at the airport.
Hotel prices in Rio are usually higher than other cities and by the price you pay at Bourbon you could receive more value from other hotel. But considering the alternatives available in Rio, I would recommend Bourbon.
