The staff were nice is about it. The pics of the hotel online must of been from years ago. The room and hallway on the 12th floor smelled bad and mildewy. The room was dirty and looked like a hostel. Our towels were dirty, bedsheets dirty and old. Housekeeping had an old shopping cart they just left out in the...

Loved staying at this hotel. It's located in Lapa, which is close to the Selaron Stairs and Lapas Arches, in a very vibrant part of town. While it is further from main attractions like the Christ statue and Copacabana beach, it's a super easy commute via bus and metro. It's a basic hotel, nothing fancy, but the staff is super...

this hotel was ok really just too far from the metro to be convenient - about a 20-30 minute walk away and at night the metro station feels a lot further than it really is For £20 + a night it was as expected though. The room was basic but clean with a fridge and a tv in it. The...

First the location is at the heart of Lapa which is very ideal if you like to go out and get drunk, unfortunately not me. The hotel: nah! Its a very old and the elevator is also a bit scary, food is so so. But the staff are very friendly and helpful..

The lokacion is excellent. Near Arcos the Lapa and Sambadrome since we were there at the time od Rio's karneval. Good connection with metro and buses. It is located in the town centre but 10 monutes drive by metro to the Copacabana. The breakfast and the service in hotel were OK. On the top flour there is a swiming pool...

The hotel was in the middle of the center. Not far from town and not far from Copacobana beach. The rooms ware basis but ok. The reception staff was friendly. The internet was working from time to time. But I guess that's Brazil.

Hotel was decent, rooms were a bit small and cramped but the roof terrace had a small pool and we loved it. Breakfast was very good as well. Great location walking to either the sambadrome or the Lapa aqueduct. We stayed during carnival and felt very safe throughout our stay.

Good location, breakfast and shower! I didn't have any feelings about cleanliness which is just okay. But it is one of the budget hotels! We stayed only one night and moved to the hostel which is located near Copacabana. Anyways, from my point of view, if you are looking for a budget hotel, not a hostel, it is worth consideration.

This hotel is average. Clean enough. Rooms straight from a fifties detective movie. Beautiful parquet. The showers were very good with plenty of water and realy hot. The safe was in the closet, but it did not have a lock. I rather liked the neighborhood. I did not feel unsafe. The staff were a bit on the surly side of...

Read a lot of bad reviews here...but I had no other option to stay. I was here for the last week of the World Cup...and yes, a lot of the comments here are true: old rooms and not your luxury hotel. But if you need just a place to rest in Rio, I would reccomend it. Do not expect the...
