My honest opinion about Hotel Intercity. First, the Front desk staff, room service and cleaning staff were excellent and very helpful. The hotel is very nice, modern and the room was very spacious- larger than it appeared in the photos. Rooftop lounge and pool are excellent with a great 360 degree view. Fitness center has everything you need. Overall I was pleased with these aspects of the hotel. Now for the negatives. The hotel is located in a distressed area of the city with abandoned buildings surrounding it. They probably built the hotel here thinking that the redevelopment that was happening about a mile away near the Port would make its way to the hotel, but with the financial crisis in Brazil, development has stopped. In short, it’s an oasis in the middle of an undeveloped part of town. There is absolutely nothing to do or see in th area, not even a store or pharmacy. I was here during Carnaval, and with the VLT train virtually shut down, it was very difficult to get a Taxi or rideshare car to and from the area. The electricity is 220 volts only and somewhat unreliable. I had problems charging some of my gear. Would I stay here again, probably not, but that has more to with the location and access than the hotel itself. Oh, I can’t leave out about the food. - mostly inedible, overcooked and chewy. I did not enjoy the room service menu at all - but if you need an inexpensive place to stay that is modern and well staffed this may work for you
