“Great location for Botofogo and Sugar Loaf”
Reviewed October 3, 2009

Nice modern central hotel for the area around Botafogo, if your looking for the beaches try its sister hotel In Ipanema which is also very good. Arrived early just after 6am following the flight from Paris and they offered me breakfast while they sorted out a room from an early departure guest. Staff was excellent and couldn't be more helpful.
Was given an upgrade to a suite room with plenty of space, very clean and modern with two Tv's and long bureau desk to work on. Bed was comfortable and the shower spotless and powerful. Has a long narrow swimming pool which is great for doing lengths and a limited gym. Breakfast buffet was included in the price and had plenty of choice. I only ate there one night over the weekend and it was empty, food was served piping hot and quickly. Not sure how they would get on if the place was busy but i guess they staff it according to the numbers staying. Would be happy to stay there again. internet is cabled. a few good places to eat around the hotel.

Great hotel in a good area if you need to come to Rio on business. I stayed in a junior suite, which had a great view. Breakfast is included in the package with expedia (maybe other sites too). I found the price to be a lot cheaper on expedia then with the hotel directly.

you can get away with not speaking Portuguese easily in Rio. I would be wary on the streets and keep alert. Leave your valuables locked up!

If you go to Rio de Janeiro for work and doesn’t have any time for going to the beach, then is fine, but please never stay in this hotel for your first time in Rio or vacation.
Stay in the hightes floor viewing the Christ, otherwise will be depressing.

Rio de Janeiro is a very nice city and an important business destination in Brazil. Unfortunately, this hotel will not be appreciated by leisure or working travellers. No attraction/bar/restaurant at walking distance. No city map available at the front desk (concierge? forget about). Two PCs at the 'business center', one out-of-order during my stay. Taxi service at the lobby, but be prepared to be overcharged. My room remind me some old Ho-Jo facilities in Florida, but it would be priced as a 4* hotel. Breakfast...I tasted better in 3* european hotels. Very limited availability of toillete goods (includding towels). Botton line: search options at Copacabana, Ipanema, or Leblon neighborhood.

Second visit in 5 weeks to this hotel. Restaurant has poor breakfast service. Exercise facility has broken treadmill. Got a Suite for about $124 USD. Staff is okay with English language. Area of city is somewhat strange. Go 2 blocks away to a churrascaria (our particular one was named "Estrela do Sul" - great food - Brazilian buffet).
