Mercure Botafogo Mourisco

Reviewed June 20, 2013

This hotel is now called Mercure Botafogo Mourisco.

I've stayed there for one night, and it was quite nice, almost nothing to complain. The only issue was that there were some small ants in the bathroom; nothing dramatic, but a bit annoying. It is conveniently located: there is a subway station nearby. One must notice, though, that the surrounding area is a bit scary at night.

I had a standard type of room. The room was clean and rather new, with adequate but simple facilities. The bathroom is very small considering the size of the bedroom, and there are only showers. Everything is clean and well maintained, but without any feeling of luxury in your room. The facilities of the hotel are rather simple, with a small open air pool and a tiny gym. There are some meeting rooms and a small business room. Location is convenient if you have business in the area or in downtown Rio, because there is a metros tation and bus stops very close to the hotel. You can take a bus or a taxi to Copacabana, The hotel rates are horribly high, considering the quality. This is a common problem with hotels in Rio.

Room Tip: Ask for room with aview on Pao d?açucar on a high floor

It's now Mercure brand property with quite good and central location to the city but far from the beach. Some restaurants and shops in the nearby. The staff were generally friendly and helpful. The roooms are spacious like aparataments with seperated living room and bedroom. Everything was clean and quite modern. Nice view overll city and Corcovado. Good breakfast included in the rate.

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.
