My wife and I stayed at this hotel in June 2015 for 5 nights. We attended a conference at the central convention center. Just to preface, there is absolutely no worries about safety in this area. This is an area with lots of high end international shopping outlets and some nice restaurants. This is like a suburb of Rio. There... More

While this is my third stay at this hotel within the past year, I notice a slow but steady decline in the status of this property. All services--restaurant, front desk, etc. remain very good, but the property itself (rooms, pool area) are looking a bit worn.

Based on the reviews I read, and the price I paid, I expected a 4-star hotel and not a 3-star hotel. The hotel is OK, it's clean and it has an OK breakfast, it is adjacent to a great gym where you can work out, but somehow it felt a bit "cheap". I may have been influenced by the fact... More

Stayed here for my first few days in Rio. Did not care for the location too much since it was away from all the big spots. Staff was friendly, they were always there to help with the messed up door. If you are coming to Rio for the Olympics, I would recommend staying since some of the events are being... More

I stayed at this hotel for nine weeks prior to and during the 2014 World Cup. The room was large and clean and suitably comfortable. At times it could be quite noisy with the major road just outside, but many colleagues found by getting a room at the back it helped this situation. I didn't find it too much of... More

Promenade Barra First is a good choice for short trips when your business brings you to Barra da Tijuca – west area of Rio de Janeiro – with nice and clean rooms /bathrooms and friendly staff. The breakfast and Wi-Fi are fair and complementary. Best off all, a reasonable price.

The free breakfast was good and the room was ok. Wifi barely reached my room. To get good wifi I had to go near the hallway. Nothing really close and many of the taxi's couldn't find this hotel. The pool wasn't very clean and the gym was cramped and dirty. Next time in in the area for business, I will... More

Last July, I stayed on this hotel as I had a weeding in Recreio. It was a pleasant experience. The room was very clean, the staff team was great. I got a great deal through booking.com site; so I recommend checking the hotel price through this site also, as you may find a better deal.

Pros: The hotel itself is honestly the nicest hotel I have EVER stayed at in Brazil. It was incredibly Americanized; possibly not a coincidence given its location on Avenue of the Americas. The hotel is spotless, new and part of an upscale condominium complex featuring gorgeous views of the beach, rainforest and mountains from each room's balcony. There are beautiful... More
