Neighbourhood
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.

Dear Mrs Sonia, Our hotel is located at central Rio in a neighborhood called Lapa, that includes many points of interest as Arcos da Lapa, Escadaria Selaron, Metropolitan Cathedral (and many others) and it's globally famous for their samba houses and bars. We are very disappointed for your review and in our opinion is not quite fair at all. When you arrived, you just ask us for sea view rooms. The sea is about 2 km from the hotel. We understand that you did want to stay in front of the beach, but it was not our fault that you had booked this hotel. The pool is exactly the same pool you'd seen in our photos as we explained here at the hotel. The location is also informed when you book our hotel. When you booked our hotel, you had all the informations and photos to decide wether to come to our hotel or not. You get a great promotion in our hotel, and the conditions were clearly exposed. As you can see in many sites, we have good ranking and reviews in the majority of travel site. I hope you had a great experience in Rio. Sincerely, Ronnie Arosa

Arrived after a 20-30 min taxi ride from the airport. Staff at the front desk spoke English and were super friendly and helpful. Since I arrived early they allowed me to hold onto my luggage whilst my room was being prepared. The room was big and spacious just the way I like it.

Dear Sir/Mrs Olympics will be a different time in all senses. But I suposse you will be able to get a taxi easily near the metro/train station. Other option is coming directly by taxi from the stadiums. They're not very far away from the hotel. Best regards,

The Arosa Rede is a good choice for lodging, but their breakfast buffet was uninspired--best stick to the fresh fruit--and I refrained from eating there. The surrounding neighborhood is not known for dining (fine or otherwise), but there are a few local eateries. One popular spot is right at the corner of Henrique Valadares and Rua Riachuelo. However, it's a buffet and I'm leery of buffet food in Asia and Latin America, unless I am very confident that it's been freshly-cooked. A better option might be the Cafe Rio Barcio, which I've reviewed in TripAdvisor--a very filling dinner of freshly grilled beef or chicken with white rice, frites, feijoada, farofa, and a litre of ice-cold Antarctica, costs US $10. And the owner, Souza, will be happy to translate the menu into English if you don't speak Portuguese. From the Arosa Rede, turn right, and right again, and it's half a block down the rua--you don't even need to cross a street. For other dining options, you might be better off heading down to Carioca or Cinelandia: there are a number of restaurants between these two Metro stations. Or, from either Metro station, go down the Orange line to the Cardeal Arcoverde station in Copacabana, where you can find dozens of lively neighborhood bars and restaurants between the station and Av Atlantica (some are on Av Ronald de Carcalho) and lots of options along Atlantica itself, including the kiosks along the boardwalk: many kiosks serve inexpensive food and some have live music at night, though all close no later than 2200 when the beach lights are turned off. Atlantica, and the beach, is four blocks south of the Cardeal Arcoverde station. I've reviewed the Portuguese restaurant Alfaia near Cardeal Arcoverde, which is excellent, but is priced accordingly. If you go two more stops down the orange line, you wind up at the Ipanema station, one block from either Banana Jack's hamburger joint or the Shenanigan's Irish pub, with lots of other dining options close at hand. Because Copacabana and Ipanema are upscale neighborhoods, the food is considerably more likely to be hygienic than in Centro, and both areas have health food restaurants, serving up heaping bowls of acai, etc. On average Ipanema is more expensive than Copa, but it all depends on which restaurant you choose. One final note: Carioca and even Cinelandia is walkable from the Arosa Rede, and it's a safe and scenic walk in the daytime However, I do not recommend attempting to walk back from either metro station late at night; for 15 reals or so (US$5) a taxi is a much safer option.

I doubt it. It's an older hotel, and my room, one of the larger ones, certainly did not. Best to contact the hotel direct.

"Higher rooms have better views... It is all city and in the middle of the city..."
"horrible views, terrible customer service"
"Ask for a room that has been renovated, they look beautiful! New paint, linens, and granite counters and new fixtures in the bathrooms. The older rooms are very dark and dated."
"Don't go to the 6th floor, as lift goes only to 5th floor and choose a back room."
