Breakfast was good. The hotel is well located, close to many nightclubs, bars and metro station. It's a 5 minute walk to the metro station ( Carioca). My room was spacious, the shower was working well. Don't flush the toilet paper down the toilet because the sewage system doesn't cope with the amount of paper, so put the paper in the garbage can. The downside of staying in this hotel is that it's noisy at night because there's music on the streets...

very correct, large rooms, well furnished, but a bit outdated, sixties style. breakfast is a basic buffet with the same processed food as usual, it 's very noisy at weekends but it's a good location if you enjoy live music, bars, and nightlife, near Santa Teresa and Santos Dumont airport.

I loved this accommodation. It was clean and spacious and the air-conditioning worked well which is essential in Rio. I requested a view of the Metropolitan church and they obliged. It was spectacular! Then we could walk outside our room into the hallway and (depending on the weather) actually see Christ the Redeemer from one of the hallways windows! Bonus! One issue was that the Wifi didn’t work in the rooms but near the breakfast room there were two computers with internet available. As advertised on booking.com, staff do not speak any English, so be prepared for that. The taxi from GIG airport to Hotel Carioca was 70 Real. The taxi from Hotel Carioca to SDU airport was under 12 Real. The walk to Carioca Station (nearest metro station) from the hotel is 900m and you pass the Metropolitan church. It is an easy walk from this accommodation to the Lapa district, keep in mind that Friday and Saturday nights are noisy due to the music in Lapa but the other nights are fine. Enjoy!

We had a short stay in Rio,'cause it was our second time there. We choose this hotel, because it was in lapa. The room was big and clean, even we had an economy room. Shower was hot and there was also a TV and fridge in the room. Choose a room at a higher floor, cause at the weekends you will probably hear people and music from the nearby club. WiFi worked ok, but was better downstairs. The staff was helpful and could also speak spanish (what helped us lot :)) Breakfast was good (with bread,eggs,yam,creamcheese &butter, fresh fruits and cake). A lot of buses pass near by and the metro is just 10min away. We liked our stay there and would definitely recommend the hotel if you like to stay close to downtown and lapa.
