We arrived by Autobus from Rio Negro airport in the late afternoon, about USD 5.00, only to find a VERY crowded neighborhood teeming with street vendors of cheap imports, dodgy looking characters, many downtrodden homeless, and minimally attired prostitutes (During The Afternoon!). The Autobus dropped us about 50 feet from the entrance of the hotel and we walked inside to be greeted by the nicest staff. Other reviewers are quite correct in that the hotel IS in need of an overall renovation although they are doing it piecemeal as they can. The room was clean and air conditioned (a blessing), but when we went out to walk around, we definitely got the idea that we were on observation. As a retired LEO, my Spidey-sense was tingling, and we spent what was left of daylight trying to look unobtrusive. Upon our return, we made plans to move to a less "crowded" location (more about that later). This hotel was about USD 50.00 per day, very fair except for the location. Breakfast was modest, but tasty and we set out just afterwards to another location. Again, great staff, but better for a younger crowd.
