“Average Business Hotel”
Reviewed May 14, 2013 via mobile

I stayed with my husband for two nights in Carnival 2010 but this is essentially a business hotel. Rooms are spacious and comfortable, with nice views from the windows on the upper floors and Wi-Fi but no safe! The hotel is clean and the staff professional and attentive. Pool is small but adequate. Breakfast is poor and should be improved. This hotel is located in a business district, a quiet area at night, but only a short taxi journey from the beaches and tourist area. A few minutes away from the Botafogo sea front.

I use this hotel every now and then because it is close to my company office in Rio.
All the times I had at least one problem, air conditioning not working, room with mold, constant noise, but last time, a week ago, was the last time.
Air conditioning not working, 300 dollars for a room without brea

I stayed here with my partner for New Years in 2010. the hotel rates were a lot cheaper than those hotels closer to the beach. the rooms are really big - plenty of room for everything, and there are nice views from the rooms on the upper floors. the hotel is clean and the staff are professional and attentive. the pool is small but adequate. This hotel is located in the business district, but is only a short taxi journey from the beaches and tourist area. its a safe and central area.

We stayed 3 nights. The rooms are very spacious, clean and have got all you need, apart from a safe (there is one, but it is not fixed, so not very safe). Swimming pool ok, but you don't need it with all the beaches around. We did not use the breakfast, as nice restaurants nearby. Location is perfect. Strongly recommend.

We stayed two nights at this hotel located only a few minutes away from the Botafogo sea front. The staff was really helpful and nice. The room was big with two huge twin beds and a terrace with a view over The Sugar Loaf and. We did'nt use the big swimming pool that we could see from our room..
Close to the hotel is a bus stop where buses to Pão de Açúcar and Ipanema beach run frequently. Not far from there you can catch a bus to the Corcovado but you will have to be patient…we waited for almost an hour without seing one.

Room Tip: Ask for a room situated the back of the hotel and at least at the 6th floor or higher in order to en...

Hotel is nothing exiting. Large rooms, large desk, adequate AC, good lighting, but small beds and bathroom. Internet is thru free wifi but it is slow. Breakfast is adequate. The selling point is that hotel is close to downtown where most business is conducted. Prices are also much lower than on any of the hotels by the beaches.
