The hotel staff were very helpful from the moment we walked in to the moment we left. Their directions on where to go for restaurants and to find things locally were very helpful. This helped make a short stay very comfortable.
Well located south of Rio's busy centre with a short walk to Largo da Marchado station, shopping centre, Metro/underground and buses to Christ the Redeemer statue. Generally quiet but old aircons noisy. Excellent shower with good pressure. Hotel generally tired and in need of refurbishment/painting. Good breakfast included but we only got offer of eggs to be cooked second to last day of our stay!
Staff were very friendly, helpful and polite and made our stay very enjoyable.
During its heyday this hotel was really nice. Now expect one of the four elevators to be out of service most of your stay. It is fine, not in bad shape, and for the amount of time you will likely be in the hotel, perfect. Our room was updated and comfy, bathroom looked great, shower pressure was awesome, and view was great. There are soccer courts right in front with big lights shining on them and probably into your room until the AM so definitely draw the curtains.
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.
