It was just the right kind of place to stay for a conference and for a two week long visit to Rio. The hotel was centrally located, next to the palace and city Metro. Great breakfast each morning with some of the best waiters and hosts. We highly recommend this place for the money and comfort. Loved it and will repeat it in the future.
"nice hotel, great staff, central location to rio"
This is a great hotel if you are on a budget in Rio. The staff are very welcoming and speaking English and are very helpful for the surrounding area. The location is very good for exploring Rio as it is central to many of the hotspots and you'll be 1-2 blocks from 2 metro stations. I'd highly recommend staying here if you are on a budget and want to to more sightseeing without compromising quality.
Whatever you do, don't mess with the knobs outside of the shower, they are the supply valves and I accidentally turned off the hot water (oops!). Other than that, the location is amazing (10 minute walk to the beach or Metro) and our room overlooked a mini-forest of palm trees. And we were only on the 3rd floor :)
Not near Copacabana or Ipanema beaches, but was easy to get to beaches by metro which was close to hotel. The hotel staff spoke good English , organised excellent tours for me , and suggested good places to eat.
Great value for money. I preferred a great hotel away from tourist strip to a terrible hotel for same money at Copacabana .
Flamengo is a quiet residential area within easy reach of downtown and Copacabana. Here, foreign embassies stand alongside restored art-deco homes. The 300-acre Parque do Flamengo park complex dominates the neighborhood’s shore. Nearby, the hilly artist commune of Santa Teresa—accessible by a trolley atop a Roman-style aqueduct—is renowened for its bars, restaurants, museums, and ateliers.
