Clean, comfy beds, nice shower and great breakfast , in a safe and lively neighbourhood, very friendly staff. 20 minutes from the airport. Good base to explore beautiful Rio. We got Uber almost everywhere apart from the copacabana and ipanema beaches, because of the traffic we used the cheap and air con metro. Take you there in 10 mm from the hotel. I totally recommend this place and trust me, I am fussy.

Os funcionários do Royal Regency Palace Hotel no Rio de Janeiro (Catete) não são muito amigáveis. Tudo parecia um inconveniente para eles. Pedindo toalhas de piscina, eles disseram usar nossas próprias toalhas de banho. Os funcionários da recepção não foram úteis ou amigáveis; muitas vezes recebido com um suspiro ou recepção gelada. Especialmente do membro do pessoal feminino. (O concierge / bell boy foi muito bom). A equipe do café da manhã grunhiu para nós (mesmo quando nós gentilmente agradecemos e sorrimos e usamos nossas melhores maneiras). Rio, seu povo precisa ser mais gentil com os turistas, porque eu provavelmente não recomendaria aos meus amigos que eles visitassem sua cidade (uma cidade maravilhosa que tem muito a oferecer). Eu não recomendaria o Royal Regency Palace. The staff at the Royal Regency Palace Hotel in Rio De Janeiro (Catete) are not very friendly. Everything seemed an inconvenience to them. Asking for pool towels, they said to use our own shower towels. The staff at the reception desk were not helpful or friendly; often greeted with a sigh or frosty reception. Especially from the female staff member. (The concierge/bell boy was very nice). The breakfast staff grunted at us (even when we kindly thanked them and smiled and used our best manners). Rio, your people need to be kinder to tourists, because I probably wouldn't recommend to my friends that they visit your city (a wonderful city that has so much to offer). I would not recommend Royal Regency Palace at all.

Lovely hotel, very clean, not very close to the beach or the city centre but the metro station is 2 minutes away, 10-15 mins by metro to the beach. Nice breakfast, the staff are very friendly and helpful as well. Plenty of restaurants and supermarkets within 5 minutes and there is a cinema near by as well. I recommend it.

Arrived after a long flight from UK We were given our room and to be honest it was a little disappointing We said we wanted a large room big enough for 3 ( just to explain size of room required) The room was very average with a double and a single bed. ( obviously the language barrier had got in the way of what was required) View from the tiny balcony looked like we were in the bronx. No chairs etc on the said tiny balcony. Bathroom was very basic and the towels were which were meant to be white were more like a light grey. In the room was a small but ok fridge Water was replenished each day...... At No Point was there any indication that at the end of the week would we be charged for the water( no info leaflets, no indication from booking in) TV on the wall has wires hanging within the weird frame Breakfast was fine, a good choice of fruit and savoury’s Minus point was that the lights over the cooked food were just that “lights” no heat to keep the food warm so everything was Luke warm or cold. The thing that spoilt the holiday was that we returned much earlier that usual from being out for a meal to find our door open!! We hurried in the room to find a young housekeeper in the room. When I asked what she was doing at 8.30pm ( our room had been fully cleaned 11am that morning. She didn’t speak English and just left. I went to reception and they could not explain why the maid was in our room.... This unnerved me and I didn’t not feel comfortable leaving the room without double checking the safe etc I would not go back again mainly due to this as no one could explain this and there was NO REASON FOR ANYONE TO BE IN MY ROOM.

1200 EUR were missing from our cash envelope after we departed from the hotel. We stayed 5 nights - Dec 25-30. Here are the facts that make us believe we got robbed and that both service personnel and managing personnel are involved in a planned robbery: 1. We ended using our card and kept the cash money in the safe deposit box of the room the whole time, even recounted it last time 2 days before departure. 2. The bell boy and receptionist kept asking us where we are going and for how long, ordered Uber Taxi for us making sure they knew exactly where we are going. 3. One day the bellboy, not realizing that we had to return unexpectedly, walked into our room without us calling. 4. Only large banknotes (100 and 200 EUR) were taken, and smaller ones left in the envelope so the envelope feels 5. Other Booking.com users reported very similar cases in the last 24 months. Finally, we have called, emailed the hotel asking to watch the cameras and electronic key logs to our room, but there has been no written response or a single call back. Every time we called in the course of this month, they said they will get back to us. No remorse for ruining our vacation.

We stayed 6 days in this hotel and we really enjoyed our time. Personnel at the receptions were really service-minded and helpful. We could change our room, and even check out later with just 100 Reals. The hotel is 10-15 minutes by Uber to most tourist attractions. And there is a metro nearby which will take 8 minutes to Copocapana.

This hotel is ten minutes ( if that) away from the beach, five minutes from the subway, five minutes from the bus to Christ the Redeemer and handy for all other bus routes.The staff, particularly the front desk, are extremely helpful. The hotel is spotless as is the pool area, rooms are a little on the small side, but very clean and comfortable. As has already been stated, nothing negative to say. Would stay again very happily if lucky enough to o back to Rio
