First I want to say that someone broke into our room while we were out sightseeing. This happened after two nights of us being there and we booked a total of 7 nights. This totally ruined everything for us. I found the front of my luggage bag opened and the lining was cut into so the can get access to the inside of the bag. I am not sure if anything was taken but our valuables were in the safe. I felt sick that this had happened. I took my bag to the reception to show them and the man in the reception called the manager who just stared blankly without saying a word. Staff couldn't speak much English but in this case they just didn't speak any, clearly didn't care in investigating, almost like this type of things are normal. We refused housekeeping for the rest of the stay and had to beg for towels, sheets and toilet paper. Breakfastwas basic, lots of files in the breakfast room. Pool was tiny. Last day on checkout we wanted to get a taxi but the woman in the reception kept saying that the road is shut, I kept seeing cars going up and down and the hotel opposite us had taxis picking people up. Really horrible experience!…
Stayed here in July for 6 nights, the hotel was very clean and the rooms were reasonably sized. There were just a few things that let this hotel down, number one was the fact that breakfast wasn't included (even though the receptionist told us it was, so we was footed with a hefty bill). Secondly the location is central for the business district and Lapa, but you must take a taxi or the metro to beaches and tourist locations. The staff were friendly however, there was a language barrier, on one occasion the receptionist rang our room and woke us up, demanding we went to reception immediately to pay our hotel bill... we still had another 2 nights booked. I would stay here again for one or two nights max due to the handy location for some places in Rio.
This place was great: Really clean, lovely breakfast, helpful staff and it has a nice roof terrace and pool. It's also excellent value for money. The only down side was the noise on a weekend. There's a street party that takes place on the street to the side of the building on Fri and Sat nights. The music does stop at midnight but it's not great if your wanting an early night. Not really the hotels fault but worth bearing in mind. Overall a very pleasant stay.
Stayed here for one week before moving out to the Olympic Park. The reception staff, especially Fernando, were always welcoming & friendly & helpful. The hotel is situated in business district & is handy for Metro, cathedral tram o Santa Teresa& other local sites. The room itself was very small, only one chair and a view into a neighboring apartment! Bathroom was good and the shower was excellent with always plenty of hot water. Breakfast was excellent-plenty of choice-hot& cold and good service. Our main issue was that the hotel has a roof bar & a lobby bar but neither were open the whole of our stay. With the room being small it would have been more enjoyable to relax with a drink in either of the bars. Travellers tip- as this is the business district, the area is very quiet at weekends and many of the local shops & restaurants close. There is an excellent Italian restaurant opposite the hotel…
It's a very good hotel, and also has a good location. I liked it pretty much. My time there was ok, and I could go back there, I had good services at my room, so that was good. This hotel also close to some places that we can go to visite, and walk around too.
The best of this hotel is it's location. Metro station, downtown, restaurants are all just steps away. Rooms are fine and have wifi, though most do not have the best views. Breakfast is great. The only downsides are the teeny tiny swimming pool on the roof and no hotel bars open for a night cap when we were there.
This hotel has clearly gone through the list of stuff need to be a 4* hotel and implemented them all paying no attention to the quality of its infrastructure or the training of its staff. Lets start with the positives: The location was within a stone throw of a tube station and the municipal theatre. In addition there is a street food hotspot just down towards the main road (turn left when you walk out the door). Also a VERY powerful shower which i like. This was where it ended. The powerful shower although powerful was hard to get to the correct temp and you have this trouble every time you go in. The air con was also erratic and either too hot or too cold in the room. In addition a cleaning lady mistakenly took my PJs, which is annoying especially when reception admitted that this happened however did nothing about it or try to compensate me in anyway. They said they would look for them but never got back to me. Also charging for water in a 4* hotel is a little cheeky since you have no choice but to drink bottled water over here. Overall this place needs to focus a little more on training of its people and a little less on how many starts it has. Wifi was average and a little unreliable at peek times but not too bad.…
The "Very Good" rating for this review is for the location, service, and the exceptional breakfast buffet. The room itself merits the "Average" rating. We arrived around 11:00 am and were promptly checked in. I asked for a room overlooking the street and we got it. While the room was clean, the bed appeared broken on the side. So, without unpacking, I went down and requested another room. Again, promptly they gave us another room. This one too overlooked the street and had a balcony. We heard no street noise from our room, especially when the windows and doors were closed. There was an air conditioner too, but it was quite noisy. The room was very clean, but very plain. It was rather small too, so was the bathroom - clean, but small. Most importantly, the room had a safe, which is a requisite element for Rio. Though our room was small, it was functional, we also had a small hallway. The beds were very average, rather hard, not the best ones in the world, for sure. The Wi-Fi was dependable and worked well. There is a cute little pool on the rooftop, but we did not get to use it, went up there for the views, though. The front desk people were consistently helpful and responsive. We wanted to go to a football game at Maracanã Stadium, and the lady at reception did everything she could to help. She was even willing to buy the tickets over the phone, but the hold time was too long, so we chose to buy the tickets directly at the stadium, and she provided helpful directions. The location of Hotel OK for seeing the historical sights in Rio is phenomenally convenient. It's near Cinelândia Square, which has many beautiful historical buildings, including the stunning Teatro Municipal and the magnificent Rio City Hall, which was formerly a palace. The hotel is within walking distance of Lapa, Catedral Metropolitana, Praça XV, even Mosteiro de São Bento, among many others. Also, the subway stop called Cinelândia is very near the hotel. By the way, subway in Rio is very safe, efficient, and inexpensive, buy fare for the plastic subway card for several trips, if you have a need. Taxis too are quite inexpensive by North American standards. There are also quite a few restaurants and cafes near Hotel OK. One evening we discovered that there was no hot water in our room. We called the reception desk, and they quickly sent up a mechanic, who assessed the situation and determined that it was not an easy fix, and the earliest we could get hot water would be in the morning. It's an old and historic building, and the setup appeared to be such that this malfunction affected only our room. I told the front desk that we really needed to take a shower, and they offered to move us to another room. Tired from a full day of sightseeing, we did not wish to move rooms, so they offered us keys to another available room where we could just take a shower, and return to ours. We took them up on it, and had the memorable experience of trekking to another room for the shower, and trekking back to our original room. Unorthodox, a bit inconvenient, but they were responsive, in the end all was good, and we got a story to remember. To our relief, we had hot water in the morning. The breakfast buffet could safely belong in any 5-star hotel. In fact, it was better than those I have encountered in quite a few 5-star hotels. They had varied selections of hot meals, breads, pastries, and other baked goods, cereals, cheese wheels of different types, many cut fruits, and great coffee, of course, which is quite common in Brazil. Overall, this hotel was great for visiting the historical sights of Rio. For hanging out on the beaches, I would select a hotel near those, as it's about a half-hour taxi ride from this hotel to Copacabana or Ipanema Beaches. I can definitely recommend this hotel for Rio's city center and historical areas.…
Very good location; close to downtown, metro, bus station, restaurant, supermarket & domestic airport. Looks old fashioned building, rooms are comfortable. Wifi is good. Hot shower available. Good breakfast. Staffs are nice, they are patience to let you know how to get to the major sightseeing; especially thanks to helpful 'Fabiano' & good speaking English 'Thiago'.
This was very nice place to stay. Hotel is positioned in center of Rio and metro is just behind. Lapa is 5 min. away by walk. Food in hotel was great and stuff is nice, kind and helpful. Do not expect beautiful views from rooms as hotel is surrounded by other buildings. Hotels is in old style but everything is clean.
