    Superb

    Staff very very friendly- I had so much trouble with flight bookings and they were very helpful. Location- very good!

    Internet use very expensive. I need to go to different hotel in order to use internet as it was 3 times cheaper.

    Very good

    The location is excellent in Centro - Downtown Rio. The hotel staff are friendly and helpful.

    The breakfast is really limited and doesn't cater to Muslim/Kosher requirements (so for example, they display plain omelet and omelet with ham in adjacent trays where guests keep using the same spoons to serve themselves, thus eventually the ham reaches the plain omelet). Also, there are no labels next to the trays, and most cold cuts are pork. It's also the same breakfast everyday so it gets boring after 2-3 days. There are limited toiletries (soap, shampoo, & conditioner) but you have to pay for extras like cotton buds!!

    central location for business purposes

    front desk staff might just try to be a bit happier, they gave me a correct service but the level of friendliness could be higher

    Location was good. Localização boa.

    They charge you for internet. They add comission for taxi services. Hotel cost is very expensive.

    Very good

    Very good hotel which I have stayed in many times on business, this was the first time I stayed in the hotel paying for myself.

    I asked to have a late check out, at 6.00 PM as I had a late flight, this cost half the day rate, but not at the rate I booked at but half the normal rate. This I did not know until I checked out and got the bill.

    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

  • 7.4
    Very good

    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.

    I found a cockroach in the room, walking on my suitcase!

    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...
