The hotel in a general way is good. The location is great, close to bars and restaurants on Olegário Maciel Avenue in Barra da Tijuca. The staff are attentive. Unfortunately, during our stay we had problems in replacing the bathroom items. We could not get a simple bottle opener and we had to bring it from outside. The fridge was very small. The water in the shower and the taps were very weak. The pool is located at the back of the hotel, which means that it does not receive sun for much of the morning. All in all, the hotel is not bad, but for what we paid on a daily basis we expected better service.

First time staying in Barra da Tijuca as we normally stay in copa or Ipanema. The hotel lobby is very presentable and spacious. Almost too spread out if that’s possible. The rooms are a bit tight but very functional. Everything worked great. We had a terrace with ocean views once on the patio. The pátios are oddly huge but only 2 lounge chairs. They really should maximize it with patio table and chairs to enjoy the outdoors. We liked the nespresso makers in the room so we didn’t have to go and get coffee. The pool is nice but oddly placed in the back. To walk to restaurants/bars it was very limited since the hotel is at the beginning of Barra da Tijuca. So it’s handy to have car or take taxi. We really liked how the beach was never crowded but if you go further along the boardwalk it is busier. Seemed better for kids/families here. Overall if we stay in Barra we’d consider staying here again if the rooms were reasonably priced. Primeiro vez ficando em hotel na Barra. O localização está enfrente da praia e mais isolado porque essa lugar fica no início do calçadão / praia. Então bom pra trazer crianças. Usualmente nos ficamos em copa ou Ipanema mais a gente gostou essa lugar... Mais tranquilinho. O hotel tem um lobby grandão e os quartos são mais pequenos. Tivemos um terrazzo no quarto mais eles precisam ter mais imóveis de fora porque não teve uma mesa nem cadeiras. Um pouco estranho. Tem poucos restaurantes em pé (uma padaria bem próximo) então terá pegar táxi ou dirigir. A gente ficaria aqui novamente se os preços sejam razoáveis.

I’ve book it because of good quality of AccorHotels and service, but this time I was disappointed. I stayed in Mercure Arpoador at Rio 4 years ago and it was awesome. It was the first experience not so good. Cons: The cleaner lady show yourself lazy, she didn’t change the dirty glass, didn’t clean the shower box and floor. I needed to ask. Some days she didn’t take off the trash. The breakfast was the same day by day. If you start to take your breakfast and time is up they don’t ask you if you want to eat anything more. I thought impolite. One day(Sunday) they didn’t have towels to use on pool or beach. Pros: Bed size(king) Shower Courtesy Price reasonable(fair price)

Me and a friend stayed at Mercure for a Medical Conference in Rio. The hotel is located at the beginning of Barra da Tijuca where it’s called Quebra-Mar. It was 5 min by car from our conference and 5 min from a great street with tons of bars and restaurants called Olegario Maciel. Check-in was extremely easy as it was check-out. They provide late check out till 2pm for everyone. Perfect! Breakfast is very good, included in the rate, but I wish it was a little bit longer specially on weekdays (6AM-9AM). They offer a great variety of breads, coffee, milk, juices, cheese, but a few options of fresh fruit. They also make tapioca (Brazilian snack) on demand and omelets. We got a room with ocean view. The room was good, clean, good view of the beach, with a double bed and a big desk behind it. They offer free-wifi with good connection! They have a safe-box free of charge in the room as well. The hotel also offers a gym that is pretty good, steam room and a pool. They have a restaurant called Sambá with great dishes. Service is a little slow but it’s like that everywhere in Rio. But they are very polite and food is well served. I believe all the staff speak Portuguese and English. They also offer a service of bike rental for 15 reais an hour. It’s a good deal to ride by the beach. I stayed for 5 days and would definitely come back! From Galeao Airport takes 40-45 min (not on rush hours) and to Santos Dumont Airport takes 40 min.

Hello Silvia Leticia B! Thanks for the great review of our hotel. I will check who gave you the information about the breakfest time, because at weekends we serve the buffet from 07am untill 11am, and at the week days we finish it at 10am. I am sure that is a specific problem, but I will reinforce with the entire team so that type of information is not passed on wrongly. I put myself at your disposal.

Stayed here for 3 nights for a business meeting. Staff is friendly, drivers are super nice. Breakfast was included and it was good and plenty. I found it close to most things I needed to visit. The rooms were clean and big enough. Beds were comfortable and I even had a mini-fridge in the room. Overall, a pleasant experience in Rio.

The hotel has the predictable qualities of a Mercure (which I find a good thing). The breakfast was reasonably well stocked, with nespresso being a nice touch. The service for omelettes and fried eggs was hard to find.
