This hotel is near the Metro Gloria and, though somewhat dated, has very comfortable rooms with queen sized beds and an extra twin bed and large bathroom with an awesome large shower. The water pressure in the large shower was very good. Having traveled extensively in Brazil, I would say the hot water and water pressure was about as good... More

We were in Rio for the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race and this hotel was closest to the Marina. The views were fabulous. The room was basic with a huge bed (and a spare single in every room), had a seating area and the most amazing shower - huge with plenty of hot water. Breakfast was good with a... More

Finally - easily the best hotel i've seen in its range across Brazil. A hotel worth it's name and a joy to come to after the Grecian tragedy that the budget scene here.

I'm rating this property as "very good" based on what I could see about rio hotels in general. This property was relatively quite, clean, roomy, and we had a good view out of the sitting room. The electricity only went out occasionally, and it was never really a problem for us. The elevator occasionally didn't work, but the stairs work... More

Stayed there for 4 nights during the WC. It was by far the most expensive hotel out of 6 in 6 different cities I stayed in during the World Cup and in the same time Diamond hotel was also the worst. The location was what brought me there, as it is located right next to a street with many bars... More

When I booked this hotel I was expecting an average 3 stars hotel, however, this seems more like a 2 stars. When I stayed (March 2013) the hotel staff was very rude and unhelpful. This used to be a "motel", not those in the US but the ones people go to have romantic encounters. And it still remains as such...... More

I have stayed in this hotel on numerous occassions due to its handy access to the centre of Rio. There are always taxis available and buses and the metro are also close as is Santos Dumont airport.

“Only one round two pin socket available for charging phones and laptop that didn't need the 'local' adaptor which was required for the other sockets. The 'good' socket was located by the main door, next to the power socket that needs your door key to provide power supply to the room.”
