Rooms are a little run down and dated, noisy AC, room safe didn’t work. Only 2 English Channels on the TV, CNN and Bloomberg..!! Everything else is Portuguese. Good breakfast buffet. Location is central in the business district.

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!
