Lapa is an old and happening place with a pretty exciting night life; so the locality tends to be noisy and not very modern.
The hotel is very well maintained, the staff are friendly and prompt in service. I stayed for 3 weeks while working in Av. Presidente Vargas, and didn't face any problems in the hotel. There's a small pool and gym on the top floor, which is not very well advertised. The breakfast spread is nice.
The hotel is close to the Arcos da Lapa, Escadaria Selarón and the many bars in this area. I also had a nice view of the Rio de Janeiro Cathedral from my room.
