Front desk staff were very helpful, calls to reception were answered promptly. Cigarette smoke flooded the room one morning through the ventilation system which was unwelcome. Food is...

The hotel is located in the Centre area, very close to Metro and Tram. During the day the area is ok but at night you have to be careful. Room are small but clean and with all what you need. The terrace at 22nd floor has a small swimming pool and the view is spectacular. Price in the average.

Very good hotel indeed! Nice building, right in the middle of the city, with a subway station 200m away and lots of restaurants and pubs nearby. The room is very comfortable and the breakfast is quite good. Prices of drinks and food are a little high though.

Central location with metro station just round the corner. Lapa and the metropolitan cathedral is just round the corner and if you keep walking you could also reach Santa Teresa. Good breakfast and comfy room. Good wifi. They have a rooftop where you can relax or have a dip in a small swimming pool.

Neighbourhood Profile
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.

“Top floors should be less noisy (we stayed in the 20th floor), although the windows provide good insulation. Our room was very quiet. A couple of rooms in each floor are smaller than the others - room numbers ending 3 and 4, if I am not mistaken.”
