Not bad rooms, but bad location

Almost the ONLY place in Brazil - staff speaks english.
Not the best location, sometimes we were really scared and uncomfortable comming home, especially in the evening, but not far - just 5-7 mins walk to metro. An average 3 stars hotel.

A bit pricy but has everything

The breakfast
Great breakfast and convenient facilities. It is located downtown a few hundred meters from a big and beautiful old church/temple which I got to see only because I stayed here.

Poor facility located in bad neighborhood

The hotel had minimum facility, whose quality was terrible: windows did not fully closed (since it was cold at night, I put used bathtowels over the gap and wore thick fleece), toilet cover was tilted, TV was broken (or batteries on remote have died) etc. The hotel staff spoke minimum English, however they gave me such poor direction regarding how to get to a metro station. You never feel safe in the neigborhood near Carioca, which is filled with run-down houses and shabby shops.

Great and good Value for money

Very close to major tourist destinations
i had an amazing holiday in rio de janeiro and this couldn't be any better without this hotel. rio presidente hotel is very close to mam de sa ave,
Travel tip: ipanema is the best for shopping, which is 10 minutes metro journey from carioca station, which is in the heart of the rio de janeiro.

A delight to come "home" to.

Customer service excellent
We were very grateful for the staff behind the counter for speaking English. They were very helpful in finding our way about the centre of Rio de Janerio. Only a short walk from subway, buses, shops, and THE CARNIVAL if you happened to be there at that time. Rooms were clean and comfortable and maid service ample. Breakfast restaurant was satisfactory. We would definitely stay there again.
Hotel Feature Tip: This is "centro" .. make yourself aware of where you are quickly, so that you can make the most of your stay in Rio (streets, maps, sight-seeing, local music, etc.

Good value for money

Located in historical center, clean, good service
This hotel is best for sightseeing and for business travelling as it's cheap and located in historical center - Carioca metro station. For beach rest it's not recommended - 10 stations to beaches. There is a swimming pool 2 x 3 meters, small gym and sauna. The start point of Santa Teresa tram is located quite close to this hotel. Breakfast and cleaning were good.

Ok hotel if youre staying for a few days

Its in city center and close to the cathedral and atractions near by
I though the room was ok for the price i payed but the staff did only speak portugese and myself had to ask for a safe in the room. I think this should come from them since they dont take any responsibility if something gets lost from your room. They had a small pool in the roof witch was ok,but the sauna and the training room was locked and out og function..
Shopping Tip: There a big shopping area just a few blocks away and carioca street that has alot of brasilian instruments if you have interest for this things

Service was good b

Service was good and price was worth it
The hotel did not have very many sit down restaurants nearby could be reached by foot but there were a lot of whole in the wall food vendors which I found very pleasant. There was a very large amount of shopping and the Cathedral Museum was within walking distance. The price made it well worth the stay and the room service was very good.
