Looking for a correctly priced hotel in this neighbourhood: ok. Looking for some extras? Not the best choice. We had to change rooms as we were put in room facing blind wall while the front rooms are much better and facing Corcovado. Rooms can use some refurbishing and the breakfast buffet was lacking some fresh vegetables. Extremely friendly staff.

Very much a good standard type Mercure type hotel. The staff are very friendly, location is ok (some nice places to eat and drink in the nearby square around the subway).

Got $300 stolen from my room. Hotel management's response - we cant do anything without evidence. Same happened to my friend staying in another room. Not what you expect from a hotel that is supposedly rated 4 star. Besides this, rooms are tiny & stinky. Bathroom is crappy and chairs and beds are full of stains. Stay away.

This is a nice located hotel, with big rooms, nice view and well maintained rooms. I used it many times during business trip in Rio de Janeiro and like it especially for the location. Very close to subway station.

Friendly staff. Room was nice. Breakfast was good. Other meals not quite as nice. I would recommend this hotel to others. A local map would have been nice (especially in English and other languages). There really was no bar, just a couple of chairs in front of some alcohol in the restaurant. Odd that the restaurant was closed between lunch...

Too bad I only read the reviews for this booking after getting to the "hotel". This is not a hotel, it is a cheap motel rather. 4.5 stars? I think not. As a business traveler I can safely tell other business people to stay away and book another place for their Río work travel in the city. Just like other...

Been to Rio like twice a year for many years and do not manage to find an affordable hotel that I can also recommend.
