This hotel is a good choice, great value for the price. The staff is friendly. The hotel feel a little bit dated and a few things must have broken with time, The rooftop bar is no more. I think that hotels should be required to update their photos and amenity list every 5 years, just to make sure the customer know what they are getting. I would stay here again, I know what to expect now. My room took very long to be ready but it was ok.

This hotel is in Lapa! So you are close to many pubs, clubs, tours, and sites. You are minutes from 2 subway stations and if you want a late-night drink the area is open till very late (5 am, just be careful from the drunk people ) I recall the room was fine from memory, the staff was very helpful and the breakfast was fantastic! Every morning I would use the gym and go for a quick swim at 7 am in the 30-degree heat! The view is nothing special, but it was great value for money and I would highly recommend it! If I visited Rio again, I would want a more beach-based holiday, and I'm certain I could find a similar quality hotel on Leblon with views of the beach, and higher quality nighlife

Thanks for the great experience at Granada hotel. I really enjoyed myself and was touched by the special attention Bruno (front desk) gave to me. I had a LOT of questions and he patiently answered them and made some good recommendations. Also, this was one of my first times to Brazil and to Rio. I was quite nervous and he made me feel very safe and comfortable. His suggestions for restaurants, activities, and safety were particularly helpful. To my surprise he spoke perfect English without an accent! I don't normally speak about individuals in these reviews, but he really stood out and wanted me to have the best time possible. You are lucky to have him! The rooms was good (bigger than I expected) and the bed was very comfortable. Very clean and the room smelled divine!

The hotel is situated in Lapa, when you enter the area first it looks quite dilapidated and unsafe. There are lots of bars and restaurants in the vicinity but they are all very basic, so if you are looking for something better this one is not for you. The room was ok, basic and our room looked out on flats and their backyards. The staff is very helpful. The pool on the rooftop is small but a nice feature. Breakfast was good with lots of fresh fruit, joghurts, cereals, chees and a hot buffet. This hotel was included in our package deal, should we ever go back to Rio we would choose another hotel to stay.

Wow, what a great hotel. Located near the lapa arches, this hotel is convenient to many famous locations. Minutes away from Copacabana beach, Sugarloaf mountain and many other attractions. There is plenty to do near here. Friday and Saturday nights expect the streets to be lined with people, music, vendors all partying until the crack of dawn. This hotel stays quiet unless you opt to open your window at night. Free breakfast included, a vast variety of breads, fruits, and hot dishes, you surely won’t go out hungry. The beds were comfortable and bathroom clean, however you may need to request housekeeping and replacement towels. The front desk speaks some English but preferably use Português.

The hotel can best be described as dated, with shabby furniture, stained sheets and curtains. The bathroom seemed liked a bad Do it yourself job the sealant , tiling etc. We asked for a double bed but were given two singles with no mattress topper so the middle ditched and separated whenever you moved. We found throughout our stay in South America the the cleaning ,and mini bar staff enter the room without knocking, even when the room has been cleaned and the do not disturb is on the door so always lock your door and put the latch on. On the upside the staff were good -looking friendly, and the breakfast excellent.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 6 nights on our trip. It was very different environment when we arrived at 9 pm on the Friday night. Lots of bars and clubs in the area so there was loud music but it didn't bother us. We headed to the rooftop and seen a bit of the city lit up as well as Christ the Redeemer in the distance.The breakfast buffet in the morning was delicious, lots of fresh fruit and breads, pancakes, waffles and amazing coffee. Also, the restaurant is not prepared to cook dinner in the evening- when you order, the workers order the food online and an Uber eats driver will deliver it to the restaurant for you. (This happened because I had asked if we could charge the dinner bill to our room-you cannot as it is through Uber eats). Most days we took the towels from our room to the beach and the housekeeping was amazing about replacing them while we were out during the days. The rooftop bar is not accompanied by a worker however, so you have to use the phone to call the lobby and someone will come up and serve you. The rooms are large, you need your room key to turn the lights on (put it in the fob holder on the wall), large shower with good water pressure, fully air conditioned, rooms with a safe and mini fridge. Most days, we walked to the stores to get snacks, beer and cases of water (they charge what you drink from the mini fridge) and it was cheaper then buying them elsewhere. Theres a pizzeria down the street that has an AMAZING lunch buffet for $25R per person. Flamengo Beach is about a 30-40 minute walk past the Lapa Arches, but you get to see a lot of very old, historical looking buildings and you past the Monument or the Dead of WWII so that's pretty cool. Great location for lots of excitement. Also, UberX was awesome at picking us up every time we used it (2-5 minutes average). All in all, it was a great place to stay, very clean, staff were really good about helping us (as we speak English, there was a language barrier) and great location. Would definitely recommend to younger couples or solo travellers for a great trip!

A week before I was scheduled to arrive in Brazil, and check in at Hotel Granada, 'Maiara' from the hotel emailed to say that there was a problem with my reservation. It turned out that because my reservation spanned new year's eve (13 nights in total), they wanted me to pay the full amount upfront. I was more than happy to - except they wouldn't accept anything but a copy of the back and front of my credit card and driver's license via email. I was unwilling to provide that information over email, and asked that they charge the card on file - the one used to make the reservation. They claimed that they couldn't see all the numbers (the reservation was made through hotels.com), and gave me 72 hours to provide the images via email before the cancelled my reservation. Since I was not going to provide that kind of detail in an unsecured email, I did not respond, effectively canceling my reservation, and I booked with another hotel. Now that I'm back from vacation, I'm reviewing my credit card charges and note that Hotel Granada has charged me for the entire booking [yes, the same hotel from which their employees claimed they did not have my credit card information, and who wanted me to send images of my credit card and driver's license to them via email so that they could process the payment]. I'm baffled. A colleague of mine stayed with them, but not through new year's eve, and didn't have this issue. I can understand that if I were to cancel last minute, you could charge me. But how is it that a hotel can concoct a story to force someone to provide the credit card and personal identification via email and then turn around and charge that person for the entire booking when the information requested isn't provided? This wreaks of extortion. I have initiated a challenge to that charge, and am happy that I didn't provide my driver's license - who knows what would have happened if they got my date of birth and address?

An economic choice with very helpful reception staffs. However, what bothered me the most were the cleaners, who tended no to replace the towels and replenish the toiletry unless I left a tip. Even if I did, the cleaner would still only make the bed at times. I came back at least two days without toilet paper. The breakfast was just okay. They offered lots of fruits but generally, the options of food were 90% the same every day. All the bread tasted no difference either. The jam and butter were very bad. The facilities need to be refurbished as well. Some of the doors and the wallpaper of the elevators were rotten. I would rather stay in Botafogo or Copacabana if I come next time. The city center was too crowded and more dangerous.
