Licated next to Santos Dummont airport this hotel is very well located. From carioca hotel you can walk to Lapa and have a nice night of fun at this "boemio" place. Employees are very polite and ready to help. Breakfast could offer more options and services like ironing would very practical in they had it. But its a good option...

Clean and basic, no frills hotel. Good breakfast and good location (Centro). Decent prices (inflated due to Olympics when I was there), and I enjoyed my little balcony. I'd have liked another blanket for the bed and the WiFi is dodgy at best. Nice, helpful staff. Architecturally interesting building. Very basic - bed, TV, soap, towels, beer/soda vending machine, breakfast....

We stayed here during the Olympics so prices were vastly inflated, but for the regular rate this is a fair option for Rio. On the plus side the rooms are clean, the staff friendly, and the showers good. However it gets VERY noisy with the nightlife on a Fri/Sat night, such that all but the heaviest sleepers will struggle (ear...

Location: Hotel Carioca is in downtown Rio (Centro) which is their financial district. The hotel is right across a police station and is honestly a 2 minute walk to Rio's nightlife. When I say nightlife, I mean on Fridays and Saturdays the music and noise from the crowd below will go on till 5am. If you don't sleep well with...

The hotel was easy to find in a great location in Lapa. My wife and I felt very safe the whole time. Although you need to use common sense like you would in any other international city. The hotel was very clean, and had a great breakfast. The food was very fresh, and delicious. You can the 'statue of Christ...
