Reviewed 24 August 2016 via mobile

We were here During Olympic Games. Rooms in design were Not cozy. Elevators worked somehow strange. Breakfast unhealthy with lots of carbohydrates, white wheat And sweets And no HOT watet for Tea- just warm... And at Check out they put on most Room bills some consumptions of minibar we Never had. So we had troubles. Area is nice. Good infrastructure.

Located on a very little street at Flamengo, this hotel appeared to be a good choice in such big city. It was far from the southern part of the city but the metro and plenty of taxis became the distance easy to deal. At first sight no big deals but when we get in the experience begun to be better. The staff are very friendly and helpful. We arrived earlier but there was no problem in letting our luggage meanwhile we went to have lunch.
The room was big, very comfortable and with a very large tub. Exceptional bathroom with delicious shower.
The WiFi worked with no problems.
The breakfast was one of two things that disappointed me. Cold and poor.
The other was the noise early in the morning in the room. It was one floor bellow the kitchen and this was very disturbing. Do not accept the room 215!

Room Tip: Higher floors must be less noisy. Do not get rooms near the kitchen, above or bellow.

All staff members were very friendly and helpful.
We stayed in suite - big space. Unfortunately air condition was very noisy and there was no window with daylight inside.
From our experience the hotel is in safe neighborhood. Very close to the metro station.
I think it is better to stay here than in typical touristic places (Copacabana).

Location near metro and Flamingo Beach. They have an arrangement with a good Gym free to use in front the Hotel. The breakfast was really good. Big plus that they have free parking, because we rented scouter in Rio, it's more easy then with metro or bus.

Our room was without natural light. The air-conditioner in the room was very noisy. The design of the building is not ideal. Windows open into chimney-like spaces within the building structure. While this gives every room a window to the "outside" (aka to nearby concrete wall), it also acts as a noise shunt so you can hear everything from every other room sharing that window space (even with your window closed). If you are a light sleeper, I do not recommend.

Room Tip: Try to not take room near elevator, because it's too many noise! And don't take room of leve...

The rooms are well conserved and neatly keep! New equipments and comfortable and bedding!
Our room and bathroom were a bit dark with an inside view window.

Originally built about 1995, the hotel was renovated about one year ago. The rooms are small but clean, the air conditioning is noisy, but the hotel area is fairly quiet. Close to the Metro, Flamingo Beach and some shops and restaurants, the hotel is less expensive than the hotels on the major beaches. The breakfast provided is outstanding with a nice variety of fruit, meats, cheeses, hot entrees and deserts. Generally, the staff was very helpful, but our room was cleaned only once in five days, and we had to ask for fresh towels twice. After the first two days, we discovered there is a switch near the entry door that signals the housekeeper that you either do, or do not want the room cleaned and serviced. We changed the switch to desire room service but the room was only cleaned on one day.

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.

Room Tip: Fifth floor is the top floor, nice and quiet.
