Just average

by Steve L on 01 Nov 2015 (Business Traveller)

Spacious room on sixth floor was comfortable enough but colleagues on level five stayed in what were old 'love hotel' rooms and were displeased. Bed was hard and door knob to bathroom fell off, which gives an indication that this is not an up-market and modern hotel. Street noise was a problem at night/early morning from the bar opposite. The restaurant food was below average at dinner, ok at breakfast. Was undergoing renovations when I stayed there and they are much-needed.

Dirty motel

by Giuseppe W on 09 Feb 2015 (Business Traveller)

What I can say? beside that, like in much of places in Rio, nobody speaks english or other languages so best for you if you know Portuguese or you are good in body language , the real problem is that the hotel is something coming directly from 70's without any change, old stuff that will make you do a memory trip.

Expensive but convenient

by Ivy24 on 30 Jun 2014 (Couple Traveller)

Stayed during the world cup period and it was the most expensive for our three weeks travel throughout Brazil. Best thing abt the hotel is that the room was spacious with big toilets, and the location was good, just two min away from Gloria metro station. Well located in a safe area. There are many food options and markets on sunday mornings. Breakfast was good too. Wifi was strong and service was good. Would probably recommend it if it was less expensive after the world cup period.

World Cup Weekend

by Jamie H on 27 Jun 2014 (Friends Traveller)

Stayed here during the 2014 World Cup. Waited a while to check in but reception were apologetic and offered us a drink. Rooms looked fantastic and both bedroom and bathroom clean on arrival. Breakfast was ok. Metro 2 minute walk away. Ideal.
