Golden Tulip Continental is a typical "what did you expect for that kind of money" place. I was in Rio for business and stayed for a week-end on my own dime to de-stress, so I moved from a 5* Copacabana Palace (which was hugely overrated btw) to the Golden Tulip. By the US sandards this could be a motel, definitely...

Shops , cafes, banks and supermarkets were all close, but be aware of Sunday closures. No problems with security and often walked down the streets at night, mingling with the local families who were also out...

According to US standards, this hotel can not be more than a 2-star. The hotel is old and recently changed to Golden Tulip (previously known as the Luxor Continental). I booked a standard room. The room was clean but not to my satisfaction. Perhaps due to the fact that the public areas of my floor were not clean and there...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Describing Golden Tulip Rio Leme as one of the most traditional hotels in Rio de Janeiro would be the least: the hotel occupies one of the most iconic buildings in the city, just one block from Leme beach. It´s a unique history: declared a historical heritage of the city, which today is represented by the architectural composition of the hotel, the reception is decorated with designs carved on the wall. By combining historical preservation with comfort, elegance and sophistication, the Golden Tulip Rio Leme is considered one of the most exclusive hotels in Rio de Janeiro. Staying here is a unique experience, because the excellent service and hotel structure; the rooms and social areas was recently reformed and now the Golden Tulip Rio Leme offers versatile options of lodging. The location is a strong point: the hotel occupies a prime space in the neighborhood of Leme, famous for quiet atmosphere of common neighborhood, but a few meters from Copacabana beach and the center of Rio de Janeiro. No doubt, a great option for the business audience that wants to be close to work and enjoy the atmosphere of Rio de Janeiro Rio de Janeiro. ... more   less
