Good, nice for a quick stay

by Rogério R on 30 Aug 2016

Licated next to Santos Dummont airport this hotel is very well located. From carioca hotel you can walk to Lapa and have a nice night of fun at this "boemio" place. Employees are very polite and ready to help. Breakfast could offer more options and services like ironing would very practical in they had it. But its a good option to stay for a weekend. I would go back easily.

Basic Hotel

by R M on 23 Aug 2016 (Solo Traveller)

Clean and basic, no frills hotel. Good breakfast and good location (Centro). Decent prices (inflated due to Olympics when I was there), and I enjoyed my little balcony. I'd have liked another blanket for the bed and the WiFi is dodgy at best. Nice, helpful staff. Architecturally interesting building. Very basic - bed, TV, soap, towels, beer/soda vending machine, breakfast. Nice to visit a hotel with real keys!

Fair budget Rio hotel

We stayed here during the Olympics so prices were vastly inflated, but for the regular rate this is a fair option for Rio.

Breakfast is ok but a little disappointing, and the beds were nothing special. The location is reasonable but the metro is a fair walk. Overall it's o...

A good simple budget hotel, pretty safe for downtown Rio, but WiFi is a problem!

The Hotel Carioca is a no frills hotel right in the Centro region of downtown Rio. First to deal with safety - it's in a big intersection right across from the police station so you feel safe and I was completely fine walking around during the day time. It's about a ten minute walk to the Carioca Metro Station, the Metropolitan Cathedral, Central do Brazil (the major train station), the Aqueduto de Carioca and the charming Park Campo de Santana (the large central park) - all which I walked to ve...

Great place to stay!

by S V on 16 Mar 2016 (Couple Traveller)

We stayed at Hotel Carioca for 5 nights and really enjoyed our stay. Friday and sathurday night you hear a lot of music because there are some clubs in the neighbourhood, but for us it wasnt a big problem. The breakfast was good. Bread, egg, ham , cheese , coffee and some juices. We really enjoyed having our own bathroom (we sleep most of the time in hostels so this was great) and having (great working!) Aircoditioning!! :) The owner/manager speaks English and is really really friendly and lov...
