“Boring but pleasant, clean and convenient”
Reviewed 12 May 2012

Good location (3 mins to the Municipal Theatre and National Library and Cinelandia tube station). Dated (90s) deco. Pleasant rooms, with great bathrooms (marble etc.). Gym pool and rooftop bar are available but all are small/not particularly appealing. Agree with recent review that location next to Lapa (night life district for samba etc.) is fantastic. Away from beaches. Expensive. Breakfast offers wide chioce but not quality is not excpetional. Reception staff were helpful but unfortunately sometimes with rather limtied knoweledge (e.g. couldn't find the airport on the map!).

Thought the price of the room was a little high for what was offered. The rooftop view was nice, but the workout center was small and unappealing. The room was clean, but nothing too exciting. Location to Lapa is the best part and its nightlife close within walking distance. Helpful staff and speaks English. Breakfast buffet simple. You'll have to take approximately a R25 cab ride to get to Ipanema beach. WiFi is an extra charge.

Great room, service, rooftop pool and bar with views, security. Good location with easy metro/bus access to everything if you are ok with being away from beaches. Decent breakfast.

We stayed here only a couple of months ago, and found the hotel to be good value for the money. We came back for Carnival 2012 and chose this hotel for its central location. This proved to be a very good choice, as Centro and Cinelandia are party central for Carnival. Massive gatherings happen just around the corner from the hotel - either in the square in front of the Teatro Municipal or a block away in the shadows of the Arcos de Lapa. Loud music, cold beer and street stalls serving all kinds of food make for a very festive atmosphere. The hotel provides armbands as an added security measure indicating that you are in fact guests of the hotel. The sambadrome is only a short Metro ride away for whichever night you choose to attend the incredible "desfiles das escolas de samba". The rooftop bar and swimming pool are a great place to relax in the afternoon while preparing for another evening of celebration in the cidade maravilhosa. And bartender Leandro does make the finest caipirinhas. Through it all the hotel remains cool, comfortable, quiet and a safe oasis from the noise on the street outside.

Room Tip: Try for a room a couple of doors down from the rumbling elevators.

Great location for carnivale if you like to party (near where many of the parties are but with good sound insulation) and the desk staff speak good English and are very helpful.

Can't recommend this hotel enough - and can't understand why it's so cheap. The rooms were clean, spacious and comfortable. Other facilities were fine - breakfast was fine but it's south America - so if you expect much more than cheese and meat, you're on the wrong continent however there was still bacon, cereal and eggs.
