The hotel is modern and clean, with good wi-fi, comfortable bed and bathroom. However, the breakfast is not what I expected: the water for tea is always just warm, and when I complained I got: once a disagreable answer, and afterwards someone who brought my tea to the microwave... The yogurt and cereals are just basic. Paes de queijo are bad.
A nice high quality modern room. 5* fixtures, fittings, panels and doors. Friendly staff with ok English language. Short walk from Rio 2016 Olympic park venues. Could improve the information booklet provided with room.
Overall we had a lovely stay in Rio de Janeiro at this hotel. We stayed 14 nights in the month of Feb here at this hotel Positives: Clean modern hotel with nice room, very friendly staff and always willing to help and support , quiet so there was no massive disturbances. Nice pool access and gym area. Easy usage of things around the place. Location can access grocery store near by and pharmacy. Bed very comfortable Housekeeping was excellent daily and appropriate times. Just across the road from the Olympic Park which u can acces the grounds but inactivity (waste of money) Shuttle bus given for local beach daily which was good. Negatives: Location not ideal as 45 min bus journey to main hear of Rio- although this is easy to navigate can be tiredsome repeated journeys. Breakfast was the same every day buffet but not many options. Shower occasionally ran out of hot water and maintenance came to fix several times unable to Difficult to organise transport and more expensive due to location for all excursions. Each of the excursions due to location we had to wake up and be ready from 6am meaning missed breakfast sometimes which was not good. Overall trip was pleasant hot and good time was had but wouldn't recommend the hotel to go to all the sightseeing tours and visiting Rio. But if you want a quiet restful break excellent hotel with little outside travel…
We stayed at the Venit Barra Hotel for a week in November 2016. The hotel is situated in a new part of Rio. The staff are pilot and helpful. The breakfast is awesome, a great spread, highly recommended. Although the hotel is situated quite a distance away from the touristy sites you can use an Uber to get around reasonably.There a a beautiful beach Praia da Barra Da Tijuca about 15 to 20 mins away. It is not as populated. There are new shopping malls in the area, close to the hotel,great place to purchase goods made in Brasil. Our stay was great, recommend this hotel for a stay.
Hotel situated opposite the Olympic Park so very convenient for visiting the games and good connections via BRT to other areas. Hotel very clean and staff very helpful, food always good and the wifi worked well and is free. Would use this hotel again if visiting the area.
Am here at the moment working at the parolympics .the hotel is situated across the road from many of the venues. It is a brand new hotel and spotless. The staff are friendly and helpful speaking different languages. The breakfast is really good plenty of variety. The room i have is magnificent and I don't say that lightly. Huge bed and magnificent shower really one of the best hotels in have stayed in for its category. I can highly recommend it
