This hotel is value for money! I stayed for 3 nights with my son and we are pleased with our clean room with everything that we need except for coffee maker. The buffet breakfast is also nice. This hotel is walking distance to Theatro Municipal and other historical buildings. However, DO NOT make the mistake of booking your Corcovado and Sugar loaf trips with the front desk! They will book you with Rio Line Turismo, whose tour guide will cut your time in Corcovado and Sugar loaf to rush to a souvenir shop! We were not able to get good pictures with Christ the Redeemer because it was cloudy and the guide gave us only 45 minutes up there! The worst thing is she left me and my son in Sugar loaf because we failed to make it to the agreed meeting place on time! She didn't even bother to go back for us! The worst experience ever!
The hotel is located in Centro closed to the bay and only 20min away from GIG. Checking-in was smooth and pleasant, and one lady at the reception spoke good English and helped to purchase the tickets to Corcovado.
The problem is that almost all the staff at the reception do not speak any English. So even some of them are friendly and willing to help, they simply can't.
The room is comfortable and in good size.
I'm very impressed by this hotel. I booked a superior room and the room has high ceiling and is very spacious. The restaurant is quick with very well priced buffet dinner. Free wifi and breakfast. Will stay again if I ever visit Rio again.
The hotel is downtown I have stayed in this hotel before. The hotel is close to public transit and close to many places to eat. You are downtown so a little noise and lots of traffic. The weekend are pretty dead downtown not much going on. Lapa is not a far walk as a museum or two are also nearby.
"Nice Hotel Close to everything, Airport, USA Embas"

Clean rooms, friendly staff, English spoken, close to attractions via cheap taxis and buses. Safe neighbourhood, Great experience. Breakfast was ample and good restaurant on premises. I would recommend this hotel for a great visit to Rio,
Pocket Guide: Rio de Janeiro Downtown - Santos Dumont Airport Hotels
Glass-and-steel towers soar above domed colonial churches. Trade thrives here, especially along Avenida Rio Branco, a commercial street that resembles the Champs-Elysées. Rio’s French influence is also seen at Praça Floriano’s opera house and sidewalk cafés. The Sambódromo, at downtown’s edge, comes to life during Carnaval. Nearby, travelers fly to domestic cities from Santos Dumont Airport.
