Positive Reviews

Artsy neighbourhood on a hill

Travellers looking for a quieter alternative to hotels in the city centre appreciate that the hotel is located in a fairly peaceful neighbourhood with a few nice bars, restaurants, and parks within walking distance. Though the hotel is located atop a very steep hill, travellers note that taxis are plentiful and also the free bonde tram is close by for a lift to the Lapa steps or over the beautiful Carioca Aqueduct to the city centre. The Gloria metro station is about 15 minutes downhill as well, and offers speedy transport to hot spots such as Copacabana and Ipanema.

A lovely property

Most guests appreciate the property's considerable old world charm, and often comment on the building's fine original features. The guest rooms are generally described as spacious, attractive, and tidy, and the common areas are inviting as well. Guests particularly enjoy listening to the birds in the gardens around the pool, with its hospitable self-serve minibar.

Excellent staff throughout

The owners and managers are widely praised for their kind and attentive service. Guests also appreciate the courteous security personnel and talented breakfast chef, noting the food is well cooked to order and there is plenty of fresh tropical fruit as well.

Negative Reviews

A hot night in Rio

Travellers note that some of the rooms are equipped with ceiling fans and large windows but lack air conditioning, which can be a problem on particularly hot summer nights.
