Its location, in the 'Centro/Lapa border' area of Rio, places it within a comfortable walk (or ride) to many restaurants, Park Campo se Santana (one block), Central train station, the National Library, the Escadaria Selarón (famous mosaic steps), Santos Dumont Airport (2.5 miles), downtown shopping and transportation.

I presume that the hotel management likes to get rid of his former reputation of a motel or hotel for passing by's . I was very well surprised of the cleanness of the room.

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
