Positive Reviews

Conveniently located for exploring Rio

Travellers looking to visit the city’s major attractions could do no wrong by staying at this hotel. Just a few minutes’ walk away from the metro station at Botafogo, guests reckon you can go anywhere in Rio, including Copacabana Beach and the Christ the Redeemer monument, without much difficulty. There are many bars, restaurants, supermarkets and shops in Botafago too, whilst the beach is also pretty close by.

Comfortable and clean accommodation

Stay at this hotel and you get what you pay for. That is the clear message coming from guests. They know exactly what to expect from this hotel. Yes, it is simple and economical, but it does provide all the bare essentials at an appropriate rate. Knowing that they get a clean, bright, modern and well-organised room, not to mention a comfortable bed, is reassuring to them – especially in a city with quite high room rates.

Negative Reviews

Breakfast is nothing special

Guests are not overly inspired by the hotel’s breakfast selection and not too happy to have to pay extra for it either. It seems to be a bit too banal for many of their tastes – just an elaborate “continental” offering without any hot options – and could be a great deal better.

Mixed opinions of the staff

Not all of the hotel’s personnel seem to be very friendly and accommodating, or at least not all of the time. Guests indicate that certain members could be a bit more professional and efficient, as well as making an effort to be more helpful towards them.
