Neighbourhood
Centro
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.

This hotel is within a few minutes walk of the museum square including the museum of the future and the harbour. The rooms are clean and have en suite facilities. However the decor is 1970s, and the furnishings are basic. The air conditioning struggles even on maximum to cool

I stayed in a day room after cruise until time to go to the airport. The lobby area was nicely done, but the rooms are definitely dated ... maybe the 50s era. The shower head could not have been smaller! The hotel was clean, but the room was uncomfortably hot even after cranking

Teh rooms are ok, clean and neat. The major down side is that the aircons only come on when you put your room card into a slot, and they take hours to cool down the room. Won;t stay here again, painful waiting for teh room to cool down before you can go to sleep.

Taxi fares in Brazil are cheap by our standards so the cost should not be a problem. This is a very comfortable hotel for a short stay. I have cruised from Rio and found the cruise terminal to be quick and efficient. Enjoy!

"Stay somewhere else"
"higher floors are probably a little quieter."
"My room was for the back of the hotel in the 19th floor. I could hear the bel of the church, but not the traffic."
"Rooms on higher floors insulate you somewhat from the intense street noise."
"Try to get a corner room, they are larger, and higher is better"
