It was horrible. Very old rooms. Bad clean service. Breakfast not variated. The wifi just work in the lobby. The center it's creepy by night and weekends. It's just good for a business trip, near the center.

Rooms are old and not very clean, aircon was filthy. Power point hanging loose in bathroom. Breakfast was terrible, (good old grey scrambled eggs) at least the fruit was fresh. Staff cant speak english (only...

Arriving tired from a business trip the first thing that comes to your mind is a good bath and a comfortable bed... right ? WRONG That´s all you won't find in this hotel, as well as smelling of mold in the room. Wi-fi also doesn´t work, only at reception.

Stayed there for one night and I was glad it was just the night - Its a budget hotel and I understand that and I'm not too fussy but I wasn't happy with the place. Air Con was like a plane taking off and was right beside the bed plus it looked like it was 50 years old and unsafe....

This is a very basic hotel with absolute no frills. The location, however, is excellent for exploring the city center rooms are clean, and the included breakfast buffet is excellent. Pasquito's the cafe on the corner is a great place for an inexpensive snack or quick meal. Free wi-fi is available in the lobby and the restaurant, and I was...

We stayed here as it was the cheapest option we could find around carnival time. Have stayed in better hostels - bathroom had plain concrete floor, horrible but working shower and toilet. Room v small and beds v basic, but as we weren't planning to spend much time there (just out at carnival etc) it wasn't too bad. However, buffet...

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.
