“Great hotel but not close to airport”
Reviewed 6 March 2012

Just back from trip ti this hotel. Rooms are great, nicely decorated, comfortable and big. The only issue with this hotel is that it's outside of rio so if you get a taxi, your fare is double as they charge a return automatically which we didn't know when we booked. Nice area and good hotel though if this isn't an issue. It's also around 20 mins in a cab from the airport so not really an airport hotel.

Stayed here for one night in order to be near the airport. The rooms are actually really nice and much better than shown on websites. Clean, comfortable and modern with a fridge, microwave and a few little extras. Nice bathroom too.
The lobby is clean and modern and the breakfast was good - plenty of it and it started early which was good as I had to leave at 7am.
It did take a long time to check in though as the receptionists struggled a bit with the language but we got there in the end.
I asked for a taxi in the morning and there was one outside. The price on the meter upon arrival at the airport was RS$44 and the driver asked for RS$80 as he said we had to pay his return fare back. I refused and stood my ground and paid RS$50 in the end which was actually more than I really should have paid. I'd advise you ask the hotel to order you a taxi and get a price beforehand.
I would recommend this if you need to stay for a night near the airport. There are bars and restuarants nearby - they are not fantastic but are a good price and plenty of them.

Stayed here for one night before heading to the airport. There were taxis available right outside the front door so no problem getting to/from the airport. Not much to do in the area but a few shops and a grocery store close by. Clean and nice. Friendly staff. A great breakfast included in the price. Mini fridge, microwave, internet.

Room Tip: Could see Sugar Loaf and Christ Statue way off in the distance in room 810.

Great new affordable hotel. Great value, modern and friendly and helpful staff. If it were any closer to the beaches of Rio it would cost a lot more. Recommend a car if you stay here, or knowledge of area. Would have been helpful if some information on how to get around was available.
Spent time in local neighborhood and loved getting sense of life here.

Reviewed 10 November 2011

I only needed a place for one night, not too far from the airport (GIG). The room included a mini fridge, microwave, breakfast bar with seating, and other handy amenities. The neighborhood was ok, some shopping within walking distance, but as is common in Rio, not recommend for excursions after dark.
But there is a restaurant, bar and snack bar. The breakfast buffet was ample and tasty.
