Stayed 1 night here in March 2013. We took the REAL Bus number/service 2145 (R$10.00 per person) from GIG airport. Alight at Av. Rio Branco. Note that the hotel is located towards the end of the avenue. The bus driver dropped us off at the start of Av. Rio Branco and we walked some distance to the hotel. There is actually a stop closeby to the hotel. Reasonably priced hotel as compared to those at the Copacabana area. We arrived on Friday (Good Friday) late afternoon and most (if not all) shops near by were closed. Hotel is near to the Metro (we did not take the metro due to time constrain). Great and delicious breakfast (included with room rate). Pool at the top of the hotel is tiny - more for soaking than doing laps. Great views from the roof top. Only downside is that the walls are really thin. We could hear doors opening/closing and also the sound of water/plumbing from the adjacent room! (A minor issue for us - we slept well).
