I liked the fact that the staff where attentive and also considering the price of hotels in Rio this place came in pretty good value.
This Hotel is a little tired as its 80 years old and only has one lift - so you may find your self waiting for the lift quite frequently. However if you like art deco style buildings like I do its a nice place to stay.
Perfect location, near subway station. Simple facilities, very good cost/benefit ratio. Nice and friendly staff.
Bathroom facilities could be improved.
They had no idea about our bookings.com booking and were quite confused by it. They were very accomodating. The Hotel is a budget Hotel so we didnt expect much. The breakfast is good and the staff helpful. It is about 30 mins from airport (30 reais in Taxi). It was very noisy at night but overall it was a good value choice.
The noise at night! (The old fashioned lift constantly going up and down)
The staff are very friendly
Would really hope they can lower the price
