“Good, Clean, No-Luxury, Expensive deals”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2012

Hotel is indeed a good one. A clean and well maintained hotel and friendly staffs. Breakfast was also good. However 4 star is over-reacting. There was nothing luxurious but well above-average. It is not really in Centro or at the airport either. You do need to take taxi or walk. Unlikely to other accor hotels, the prices fluctuate heavily and that made me early checked out. I would recommend others who don't mind money. For me a good deal counts also how much you pay for. If I had to pay so much then I would rather choose Hilton for the same price.

Room Tip: I choose Accor Group as internet booking is often nightmare when you arrive to some other hotels. An...

This is a great value business hotel with excellent service, good rooms, access to wi fi inside your room, nice breakfast and a practical location by Santos Dumont downtown airport. Location is good because it is close to the airport and if you have to take an early flight it's a great option. But it's located in an area that gets really desert at night, so it's not a good idea to walk after you get to the hotel at night. There are few good restaurants and grocery shops in walking distance. And if you want to visit Copacabana, Ipanema or Leblon, you have to get a cab. Hotel prices are excellent. And there is a decent room service.

I arrive to rio by plane from sao paulo, and this hotel is just 500 m away from the airport, well located if you want to visit rio downtown The staff is friendly, breakfast is ok, and the price is excellent,
I had several meeting in the center of rio, so i could even walk to some meetings, and enjoy the carioca ambience,

at night there are some restaurants not so close from the hotel but it is worth to visit the area rua dos mercaderes,

Room Tip: choose upper floors

I stayed at the Novotel after travelling in Minas Gerais. It was my fifth trip to Brazil and my fourth trip to Rio. I had stayed in Copacabana and Ipanema hotels on prior trips but wanted something different this time. The hotel is within easy walking distance of many interesting historical buildings and museums as well as the ferry terminal that can take you to Niteroi or several of the islands. The hotel was great. They checked me in early and gave me a late checkout. Breakfast was great as well. I have no complaints.
