we stayed at Promenade Visconti for 5 nights. We had the oportunity to find a great deal on booking.com.
The very first experience of the hotel,was when the taxi stopped outside and immediately the piccolo stepped out to help us with the luggage, That really made a good impression on us. We felt as well very welcomed by the guy working in the reception. Since our portuguese wasn´t that fluent we were happy that the staff have excellent knowledge in english.
I must say that the room looked better than on those photos we had seen when making the reservation. Later on I heard that the room have had som reforms including a new sofa. Normally I hate breakfast at hotels since it almost always means a lot of stress and chaos and therefore I was surpriced that the restaurant only had a few tables and a generous open hours. In weekends they serve breakfast until noon. Good choice of juices, bread and pastries and the coffee was better than average.
Good cleaning every morning and if you tip the girl whos making your bed, don´t be surpriced if you find new sheets the next day,.
All in all we loved the hotel and the hotelcrew so we can higly recommend it if you will stay some days in Rio. The area is safe and it takes not more than 4 minutes to get to the beach of Ipanema.More
