It is a very typical business hotel - close the curtains and you could be in any city on earth. The place could do with some redecoration, but overall no complaints. The breakfast was much better than I expected with a good range, and cooked to order eggs. Very convenient for the domestic airport. We walked it in the daytime... More

I use to stay at this Hotel in most of my business trips to Rio and it is very conveniently located for this purpose, close to the domestic airport and within walking distance to the financial center.

There are only a few good hotels in downtown Rio and this is among the better ones. Next to the airport and in a walking distance to the center you might consider this one if touristim around and beaches are not among your priorities.

Very near to the Santos airport, not more than 15-20 minutes by taxi. Near to the main beaches, its a walkable distance, near to multiple clubs and restro bars with people singing and enjoying on weekends (weekend here starts from Friday 04:00 PM)..:) Great and vibrant city with many things to do..!!

Quiet and within a block from public transportation (metro and bus) making it very convenient. Staff was friendly and helpful. The room was modern and clean. Fast room service. Only critique was that the restaurant food was too salty.

This is my third time at this Novotel Santos Dumont hotel, and I must state that I absolutely enjoyed my stay. They provided excellent service, and certainly value for money. Given another chance to visit Brazil and Rio de Janeiro, I will stay here again.

This review is for the stay during Carnival and Post-Carnival. I honestly feel like the hotel serves very different review & rating depending on when you go, and after much thought, I decided to give 4 stars but not for the reasons I expected going in. This may be a rather long review... Carnival Period- My expectation was that this... More

Came back to Novotel Rio St Dumont and don't regret it. The staff is superb, giving very good tips on the city and also on the transport system. The fitness room could have better machines (more weights).

Good thing for those who need to work in the surrounding area. The rooms are clean, smell ok, polite staff, but..... The shower was cold like north pole! The hotel was recently rebuilt and the demand for hot water is above their capacity to warm it up. The high price doesn't justify it! I would recommend IBIS wall to wall... More

Staying in Centro

Neighbourhood Profile
Centro
Downtown Rio is the place where this city was born. With modern skyscrapers sharing space with historical buildings and landmarks, this neighbourhood is living proof that the old and the new can live together harmoniously. As you would expect, downtown is where all major companies house their offices. However, the region isn’t restricted to businesses. Gems such like the “Paço Imperial,” which is a cultural centre that used to serve as a residence for governors of Brazil, can be found here. Pedra do Sal, a Monday night street party, is also in this neighbourhood. This landmark is the birthplace of samba and is famous for its “roda de sambas” (“dance circles”). Stop in for one and get closer to discovering where Brazilian happiness comes from.
