I booked this place a month in advance with a good discount (15%) through booking.com. It's on a quiet one way street (runs from the beach esplanade back to town) in the Catete neighborhood, part of Flamengo. We were well received by an enthusiastic concierge who spoke good English and made sure we were happily settled in. Only snag here was that I had requested a twin room and on opening the door encountered a double bed. Quickly fixed with another room on the same floor. Spacious, modern, TV, mini-fridge, lots of lighting options, electrical outlets, good shower, clean sheets, quiet air conditioning, closet with clothes hangers and a safe. Standard breakfast included in daily rate, fresh juices, scrambled eggs, sliced sausage, ham, cheese, various breads both rolls and sliced, toaster, fresh fruit like pineapple and papaya, usual coffee and milk, yoghurt. Pretty good in all. Computer access in the lobby. Hotel has its own garage parking although it's a bit tight for a pickup through the narrow entrance. The hotel is close to a busy commercial street (Catete, first intersection, 150 m away), which also has a good restaurant (Catete Grill, see separate review). Room service and hotel restaurant provide good options too. Check out was easy, paid on a credit card when you check in. Good stay, helpful staff all round who spoke English and Portuguese.
