Great spot across road from the beach. Rooms are functional and during my stay quiet. Breakfast is adequate. Hot scrambled egg and sausage. Fruits. Bread. Cheese. Food at hotel was edible but there's better round the corner up 'Happy Street', including some great salad bars and delis. Staff were all nice. This place is okay. I wouldn't warn you off...

Good hotel. The breakfast is excelent and the view is amazing at higher floors. I have to congratulate the crew, they are all very polite and gracious. The rooms are comfortable with good beds. I just have one complaint: analogic channels of cable TV.

I stayed several times in the Tropical Barra Hotel during business meetings in 2014. I can recommend the hotel with regard to the rooms, but especially because of the location. I always enjoyed a nice view of the beach from the rooms I have been assigned to. The breakfast was ok, but as I think that Germans have special expectations...

Stayed here with British diving team for a training camp. Rooms are good size, views from our room was excellent. We had both beach and mountain view.

Good hotel, comfortable room, reasonably priced restaurant, free wifi and great location. It is right by the beach in one of the safest areas in Rio, I felt safe walking in the neighbourhood by day and night. Good for seafront walks on the long promenade, and convenient for local bars, restaurants and shops.
