                      Great stay, highly recommend 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.

                      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.

                      The hotel staff were lovely and extremely useful, with both english and non-english speaking staff. The room was clean and tidy with adequate facilities including a fridge. The breakfast was substantial. Would definately recommend this, the local nightlife was good fun, with lots to see and do in the local area and access to a metro just down the road.

                      The bathroom was a bit small and there was a bit of noise as people closed doors in adjacent rooms.

                      The checkin procedure was quick and easy and the reception staff spoke english.I liked the room that i was in with a large and comfortable bed but as mentiond the bathroom was a bit small. I had just arrived by bus and was a bit tired so the hotel suited me for the night.The area is known as Gloria and there are a couple of small juice bars on the corner but there is not a lot to do otherwise.

                      El hotel no parece realmente un hotel, parece un motel. Esta ubicado en una zona que no la recomiendo para estar en Rio de Janeiro, aunque tenia reserva para 4 noches solo use una y cambié de hotel. La habitación es muy pequeña, huele a cigarillo y creo que algunas personas la utilizan como motel.

                      Hotelito ”

                      situado muy cerca del metro y equipo fantastico

                      El hotel es muy pequeño, lo llamaría Posada, pero con mucho encanto. Esta situado al lado de la estación de metro Gloria por lo que hace muy fácil el acceso a cualquier parte de la ciudad. Habitaciones muy sencillas con banios muy pequeños pero suficientemente confortables. El personal muy joven y muy atento, hablan español. El precio es asequible comparado con los hoteles de alrededor.

                      Удобное расположение”

                      Бюджетный отель.Удобное расположение.Бесплатный сейф в каждом номере.

                      Отель располагается в полнее безопасном районе в нескольких минутах ходьбы от метро, автобусных остановок, продуктовых магазинов, аптек, банков и банкоматов. Достопримечательности Рио, тоже находятся в шаговой доступности. До остановки, откуда следуют автобусы до статуи Хреста Спасителя можно дойти пешком, любуясь старинными улицами Рио, (15-20 мин), либо доехать на метро (1 станция). Бюджетный отель. Персонал на ресепшене хорошо говорит на английском. Готов помочь в решении любых вопросов. Номера очень маленькие. А таких крохотных туалетов и ванных комнат я еще не видела ни в одном отеле. Дверь в ванную комнату открывается не до конца, т.к. мешает унитаз. Человеку миниатюрному никаких трудов не заставит туда пролезть. А вот человеку с лишним весом следует постараться. В комнатах есть холодильник (маленький), шкафчик с вешалками, но без дверок. Бесплатный сейф в номере с электронным кодом. Есть кондиционер (ноне во всех комнатах) и потолочный вентилятор. Окна в номерах выходят в коридор. В отеле вообще нет комнат с окнами выходящим на улицу. Все номера в отеле располагаются на нижних ярусах. Самый верхний ярус –ресепшн. Завтраки в отеле в полнее приемлемые, я бы даже сказала хорошие. Шведский стол, включающий – чай, кофе, прохладительные напитки, несколько сортов хлеба, сыра, колбасы фруктов и т.д.Я осталась вполне довольна данным отелем. Изначально настораживала низкая цена. По близости есть ресторанчики и кафешки, рассчитанные на местное население и туристов. Мы пару раз обедали и ужинали на Капакабане в Шускарии, у них есть большое преимущество – ты можешь выбирать все что понравилось и есть сколько душе угодно, либо по весу набранной тарелки. В полнее бюджетно. Не во всех ресторанах и кафе Рио есть меню на английском языке. Обязательно возьмите Русско-португальский разговорник. Пригодится, т.к.в Бразилии практически никто не говорит на английском. Приятных путешествий!
