                  Nothing much. It was clean hotel, but not worth the price. Its centrally located to many places in Rio where you can catch a bus and go

                  Not worth the 200 dollar a night we spent

                • Older travelers
                  7.4

                  Room was large, bed was huge. We only stayed for one night and the hotel was fine for that but more of a business hotel than a holiday hotel I think.

                  Bed was on the hard side.

                  It´s very closed to Santo Dumond´s Airport

                  I did´nt like the room. Small. The hotel is expensive e the service e the hotel doesn´t correspond the value (what I´ve paid for it) The corridor smells cigarette.

                  Close to the International airport.

                  Overprized, certainly not 4*. Staff at reception and at breakfast not friendly at all at the least. A/c in the room not working, had to call twice before they send technician. Business center : the internet was slow, not working properly, printer out of order and very expensive, however they did not charge after my 2nd complaint. We booked an executive room which includes an jacuzzi but I am pretty sure we were given a standard, again after complaining they reduced the price a bit, this without asking as they insist only a deluxe has an jacuzzi. Worst hotel we had in Brazil, pousada's are far better in service and comfort. We booked it because it was the only one left.

                  When I made my reservation through Booked.net I get executive room - more spacious with jacuzzi. In fact executive room at this hotel is superior and no jacuzzi. But the did upgraded me foc. The staff is really helpful.

                  This hotel by europeanean standard is not a 4* hotel, I'll consider him as a 3*. The location is poor, downtown, but at time of my reservation this was best available,

                  The buffet!! It was outstanding!!

                  The room was very warm - it was difficult to cool down even though we were blasting the a/C.

                  The hotel staff didnt speak much english and was not very helpful with any questions about tours or how to go around. Irons are not available in the hotel?!? Breakfast was ok but not really good.... All in. all I would have expected much more for this price and this kind of hotel...

                  One of the young staff members was very helpful

                  Very over priced and the rest of the staff were not helpful. Poor quality.

                  The room was fine and the view pretty good. Restaurant average. Maintenence staff (plumber, electrician, IT specialist) were responsive and tried hard.

                  The plumbing, television channels (lack of), lack of wireless connectivity in the bedroom and cables that worked only intermittantly, Only a couple of staff who spoke any English whatsoever. The area was busy on work days but like a ghost town with most shops and eating places shut on public holidays and weekends.
