Restaurant service is definitely the worst there. Breakfast has a lot of items, but not that good quality, the whole bread is no 100% whole, cheese aren't brand new, there is no sandwich toaster. I have bought a wine bottle in the supermarket to drink at my room. As I ordered in the room service a sandwich (that came to...

This hotel is partelly owned by private owners (appartments) and part is hotel. The staff on the reception are pure, they dont know what they are doing, not helpful, not smile. They are absolutelly chaotic, changing reservation and room numbers by them self. Not professional!

Stayed there for the Olympics. All was great until I got short-changed at the restaurant. In the UK the customer is right but here the staff gathered and all took the side of the cashier. It was quite an upsetting moment but I caved in because I was so busy and tired. Now I wish I'd complained to reception.

This is a great giant hotel in a peaceful community in Barra de Tijuca-Rio de Janiero. Walking distance to local café, market, and other condominiums. Giant Supermarket is about 7minute walk away and gas station in the corner with hot food and groceries as well. Few minute drive to major malls and shopping centers in the area. About 1hour and...

It is a fine hotel in Rio with a good price/quality relationship bu far away from the beach so I would recommend it for business but not for vacations. The pool, spa and sauna are nice. The breakfast is great too.

The hotel has a good location in Barra de Tijuca and is slightly away from the main road. Mostly suitable for business trips as it has small but clean rooms. The best part of the hotel are the staff members who are friendly, cooperative and try to guide you, when asked.

This hotel looks like it would be a 4 star from the outside. The website makes the rooms look huge. We found our room to be very small and did not even have room for a small sofa.
