I traveled with my family, wife and child (5 years old), Mercure Botafogo is a suite style hotel with fridge, microwave.
Good room size with a living room (with optional bed) and room, so there´s accommodation for a family. Bathroom is no so large a little bit tight. Good cleanness.
Breakfast is overpriced (about USD 20) for options offered, every day same options and our last day on a Monday there´s no pastries options just 2 cakes.
In my opinion Botafogo is a good location for sightseeing in Rio, because close to several attractions specially if you are traveling with kids, ok for beach is not so close but not impossible to reach with a taxi (there´s a lot of in the region and prices are affordable), if you prefer there´s a bus stop in the corner (Voluntarios da Patria street) or Metro station 4 block walk to beach direction.
Good bars and restaurants options just 10 min. walking.
Service is pretty good, at check in Mr. Paulo Santos was very efficient and provide full information about hotel.
Don´t forget to ask a room with Cristo Redentor view, it´s amazing.
I do recommend this hotel, except if you prefer to stay in Copacabana or shopping in Barra da Tijuca.
