          I was here just for one night before another booking but I would have loved to stay longer. Great staff and nice breakfast. Beds and bathrooms were in good condition. My WiFi cut out quite a bit which was annoying.

          Hello, I'm arriving to Rio on September 18th 10:00 am, wanted to know if it is possible to book without a credit card since my credit card will be "activated" just for the period of my trip (Venezuela access to foreign currency), and I also wanted to know if I can do check in at that time, I will arrive to Santos Dumont airport. Thanks in advance for your support.
