Nothing works as should. Air conditioning noisy, not cooling... Few options in restaurant, front desk not receptive, takes too much time to attend requests Liners and maters seems old and dirty Good location in Barra only.

I stayed here for 2 weeks whilst working in Rio and it was ok. There were no problems and I'd stay here again. It is quite a basic hotel. The staff are very helpful but the restaurant was not brilliant for dinner but presented a decent choice at breakfast. Some of my colleagues had issues in being charged for minibar...

Stayed here during the Olympics. I found the staff warm and very helpful. The first day I noticed the bathroom window open and couldn't close it. They fixed the issue quickly. And even before I arrived, they made sure to give me a quiet room, which I had requested. Breakfast is good and plentiful. Desserts are tempting! The hotel was...

Stayed here during the Rio Olympics. Not too bad a location at anytime really. The Barra mall is just 400m along the street and offers a lot of good mid to high end shopping and food options. Hotel was clean and tidy and the staff were friendly and tired to speak english where they could. Breakfast and dining options were...

During the recent Olympics I stayed at this hotel with a large group of other people who were working at the Games. The staff were exceptionally helpful, the restaurant served excellent food and the room I stayed in was clean and comfortable- all that was required. For relaxation there was a gym and pool and the hotel offered transport to...

I spent two days in a business trip. The room was comfortable and clean. Room service and front desk are very good. The restaurant was under reform and was improvised in a big room, but not too fresh food. To pay attention to the mosquito in the room.

I have been at this hotel for approximately 3 weeks and the service in general is really bad. Out of 5 elevators 2 or 3 were always broken and the others not properly programed, had to consider extra 5 min every morning to wait for one. The trash is transported in the same elevators and they stink most of the...

I spent 2 weeks here while working in Barra. First up, this hotel is so much better than where I stayed previously, so my views may have a lower starting point than others! Reception staff were great - all spoke English to some extent, and some of them very well. My room was fine - good wifi, working air con...
