It was a huge let down. The location held huge promise, being a beach-view hotel. Indeed the view from the sea-facing eight floor room was great. Unfortunately, that is also all the full extent of what good there is to speak about it. I stayed for a whole week, four nights, while attending a business fair in Rio. Every night,...

I've stayed there some years ago. My girlfriend went there also with her aunt and it still has a good price/benefit relation. It is well located in front of Praia do Pepê (at its very beginning, but you need to check if this is the beach you are looking for in other reviews about it). The breakfast is good, whith...

I stayed here over a week, I was taking part of a conference. One day I lost my wallet at the conference bus, I thought I did so at the hotel probably. The manager Julius* was incredibly helpful. He gave me the idea could've been doing the bus driver, he made several calls and contacted the bus coordinators. Thanks to...

Great spot across road from the beach. Rooms are functional and during my stay quiet. Breakfast is adequate. Hot scrambled egg and sausage. Fruits. Bread. Cheese. Food at hotel was edible but there's better round the corner up 'Happy Street', including some great salad bars and delis. Staff were all nice. This place is okay. I wouldn't warn you off...

Good hotel. The breakfast is excelent and the view is amazing at higher floors. I have to congratulate the crew, they are all very polite and gracious. The rooms are comfortable with good beds. I just have one complaint: analogic channels of cable TV.

I stayed several times in the Tropical Barra Hotel during business meetings in 2014. I can recommend the hotel with regard to the rooms, but especially because of the location. I always enjoyed a nice view of the beach from the rooms I have been assigned to. The breakfast was ok, but as I think that Germans have special expectations...

Stayed here with British diving team for a training camp. Rooms are good size, views from our room was excellent. We had both beach and mountain view. The hotel is right on the beach and Barra de Tijuca is a nice area. At no point I ever felt unsafe during the day or night. It has nice little restaurants around...

Good hotel, comfortable room, reasonably priced restaurant, free wifi and great location. It is right by the beach in one of the safest areas in Rio, I felt safe walking in the neighbourhood by day and night. Good for seafront walks on the long promenade, and convenient for local bars, restaurants and shops.

“The rear side has some noisy rooms (maybe due to central air-conditioning). Ask for room change immediately (it could take some time!).”

“Rooms ending 1and 2 seem to be the suites facing the sea directly, but the room numbers ending in lower numbers, 3,4 etc are the front ones along the side. I was in 404 and had a great view of the mountain and the sea.”
