The hotel is well located, 5 min walk from Santos Dumont airport, very handy for those who are arriving or departing from this airport. The hotel is in city center, so it is an advantage for business travelers.
It seems brand new but the poor quality of the materials chosen for bedroom's floor will pay its price in 2 or 3 years. I highly suggest the hotel manager to check carefully of a plan for it's maintenance. All other building materials are OK, adequated for the hotel standard.
Check-in and check-out were fast and professional, gentle but no smiles.
The room has a nice size with bed, open closet, safe, mini-bar, sofa, table, chair and HD TV.
The bathroom could be bigger and the sink faucet is a downside, no water pressure, it takes a long time to fill a cup. However, the shower is very nice. The bathroom amenities provided are just OK and there could be some skin lotion.
Bed and bathroom cleaning were nice.
The bed mattress is really good and the hotel provides two choice of pillows.
Wi-fi internet connection is free but very unstable. Some hours it's deadly slow.
I would recommend it just if you get an amazing rate as I did (about U$ 100 per night), as it is usually much more expensive (starting from U$ 220), otherwise I would think of staying in the Ibis Hotel next door from the same hotel chain (Accor Hotels).
