irst time @ the hotel
old hotel in a very nice neighbourhood of Rio rooms very big but a bit dated wifi was decent cable tv adequate with plenty of english channels very safe area walking distance ( 5 minutes) to Flamengo beach which is not touristy one bit
Stayed 3 nights in Sep 2019

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Conveniently located and safe
Safe and very centrally located hotel. Close to metro, beaches, downtown Rio, and Santos Dumont Airport. It also provides free access to an excellent gym across the street. Very reliable WIFI. The only drawback was the lack of natural light in the room.

4/5 Good

Front Desk Manager Great!
The hotel is In the Catete district. two blocks to a metro but, with. 4 of us, it was easier to take a cab. Breakfast is okay. You won't starve but, the selection is small. I had a problem with my room and the front desk manager, I've forgotten his name was very professional, spoke English well and changed my room. He was helpful for this situation and any questions I had about Rio. There is a small fridge in a receiving area in your room and there are plenty of markets on Catate St. Would I stay here again. Yes It is not the Marriott but, it worked well for my budget.

4/5 Good

Great location/good deal!
Not crowded in hotel. Breakfast with real eggs and good coffee. Staff helpful. Lots of marble tiles and small fridge which can help with stuff.

3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness
British 3 star standard. Friendly staff. Very good breakfast. Charged us for 4 beers despite only drinking 3 from the mini bar. Had to leave so didn't argue the point. Safe area close to centre and beach. Get a yellow cab to local attractions as the hotel organised cab to sugar loaf, which was more expensive than the return in a yellow cab.
