The hotel is close to the Lapa arches and everything you'd like to see in Lapa are within walking distance. The rooms were clean and comfortable with a hot shower and large tv. The staff didn't speak much English and looked unhappy everytime I passed by. My biggest complaint is I woke up to small ants everywhere on the bed...

Read some of the reviews and was a bit wary and didn't know what to expect of this hotel...we had no reason for concern! First of all, the area - I can understand why at first it may seem a bit dodgy, but you have nothing to fear! You can walk round freely, drink with the locals, Centro, Sant Teresa...

The attention of the staff was excellent. The breakfast is abundant and varied. While the windows of the hotel is not very big, as it is not very crowded you can enjoy perfectly. Everything was very clean. The room that we had was more beautiful from what you could see in the pages of the internet.

There area is very dangerous, drunken, druggies, hookers (I...

Good location close to LAPA. Close to the airport and public transport, very small rooms, breakfast served in the room but there is no favorable conditions for a meal. Poor maintenance but clean, most staff do not speak English.

The hotel is very simple. The room have a table, a small fridge, cable TV and good internet conection. The breakfast was really good, and served in the room. The staff were amazing, unfortunetly I didn't get their names, but they were all very nice and helpful. The prices, for Rio, are also good. There's a lot of bars, restaurants,...
