    Go somewhere else

    Misrepresentation of room reserved. Given handicap room instead of my choice when R$90 and very rude about the whole thing and borderline invasion of privacy. Will never stay here again.

    Excelente hotel.

    Excelente hotel. Colaboradores atenciosos e muito prestativos. Café da manhã excelente com a melhor vista do Rio de Janeiro. Quartos muito limpos e bem arrumado.

  • 6.0.Good

    Everything is quite good except the check out. It costed us more than 40 minutes to finish the check out. Probably the longest in my life! There was one guy working in the front table with a quite long of guests in line. Disaster!

  • 6.0.Good

    Very convenient to the Santos Dumont airport (a 2-minute walk). I had booked a Deluxe Oceanview room but there was no luxury although there was an obstructed bay view. Power outlets are 220v with the European 2-pin system (bring an adapter). The Expedia VIP Access means NOTHING at this property......buyer beware. Nevertheless because of the proximity to the airport, if ever on a tight connection again, I would stay here again. Otherwise I’d go to Copacabana or Botafogo.

    No hot water! Bad Service! Only positive, airport

    No hot water!!! Terrible service checking in. Obsessed with forms and numbers and ZERO care for the customer. I have stayed here 3 times before. They successfully managed to lose a customer!

    Amazing location with great amenities and one of the best panoramic views of Rio. Don’t be put off by it being the airport hotel - it’s my second stay and would go back in a heartbeat. Breakfast and dinner is great and the staff/hotel has effective cover measures.

    Muito deplorável conhecer o prodigy antes e agora! Chegamos as 23 horas com 3 malas via táxi. Tivemos que ir na recepção onde se encontravam dois moços, para pedir ajuda com a bagagem. Nenhum dos dois se ofereceu a ajudar-nos a mim e a minha filha, apenas nos entregaram o trolley do hotel para levar as bagagens que levamos nós mesmo para o quarto. No quarto não havia papel higiênico e mesmo depois de 3 chamadas a recepção, o papel só nos foi entregue as 10 da manhã do dia seguinte. O box do chuveiro estava imundo! O café da manhã ainda que bem abastecido com grande variedade não tinha espaço para sentar, as mesas estando quase todas ocupadas por o pessoal de Aerolinhas. Esperamos aprox 14 minutos e fomos levados a uma mesa suja com restos do café da manhã de outras pessoas que foram apenas tiradas, sem a mesa ser higienizada, fato que pedimos para ser corrigido imediatamente. O hotel virou um hotel para companhias aéreas mas não para hospedar hóspedes em geral pelo meu ver, muito diferente do prodigy que conheci um tempo atrás!

  • 6.0.Good

    I had two different experiences while checking in, with two different staff members. One was great, excellent at all levels. The other one was a nightmare with the free gift of disdain and some attitude. He really did not care at all. No compassion within that soul. I have no words to describe how professional and ethical Alex has been. His etiquette and politeness was second to none. He has been a white glove from the start to the end. Very polite and well mannered and efficient. He deserves a golden key. On my check out, two nice and polite ladies were also very friendly with nice warming smiles. On the contrary, I am really confused about this specific unfriendly, arrogant and petulant staff member can be working at any hotel or in Hospitality as a whole. I think he might have never gotten the essence of it. A total lack of luster and caliber. Maybe a sad person with a pitiful attitude, I may say. Treated me with scorn. I should wish him luck in his endeavors, may he find happiness one day.

    O café da manhã no roof top é sensacional! Dá vontade de ficar um tempão desgastando o excelente café da manhã, com muitas variedades.
