Great stay, highly recommend

Great staff, location, breakfast
The staff here are just wonderful.. So friendly and helpful. Positives were: location was in a safe neighbourhood and 5 minutes walk to metro; hotel was clean with great air con, wi-fi was usually fine, breakfast was continental, fresh and always quickly replenished by the ladies who worked in the kitchen... The hotel manager ate breakfast there each day so that's a sign of a decent breakfast!; we had a nice room which was at the end of the corridor on the first basement level - size was perfect, good storage, & cleaned everyday by housekeeping. This place is a bargain for Rio if you get a good deal.

Friendly, professional staff and clean rooms!

Very friendly and English speaking staff always willing to go the extra mile to please the customer. Good location away from overrated Copacabana but close to Lapa with it's vibrant music scene.
Our stay was veryu pleasant and we felt that we could ask any question and the staff will deal with it as best as they could. The rooms are superu clean ( nice change after some accommodations in South America). Breakfast was tasty and fresh. Definitely recommend it whether you are solo traveler or looking for a cosy place to stay with your partner.

Free internet, close to subway, near restaurants
Was an average hotel. Free wifi and close walk to subway. Bathroom way too small.

Poor room arrangement

Clean,location,good breakfast
I had booked two classic double rooms, but they give me one triple room. I could not sit on the lower deck bed. My friend had booked one room for two nights. She was not given any room for her. The room arrangement is poor.

You'll be surprised by the rooms @ basement level

Location, Functionality, Affordability
Just the way you want it, no excessive provision yet not at all shortchanged. It fits to every seasoned adventure traveler's criteria.

lovely fresh compact hotel

Hotel always smelt fresh and clean
The hotel was very nice, but very small, the rooms were spotless, always clean sheets and towels. The bathroom was extremely small, it was very difficult to get in and out of the shower, also the sliding door leading to the bedroom. The stay would be fine upto, a 3 day stay, but it had really got to me by the end of 7 days. There was absolutely nowhere to put toothbrush shampoos , bathroom stuff, we ended up putting tooth brushes on top of the toilet system, which is just not good enough, no cups for cleaning teeth, or for a drink of water supplied.
