    The cleaning staff are helpful, friendly and good at their job, as are the porters.

    The food served as part of the breakfast is absolutely terrible. The bread was mouldy, the coffee sat for hours on end without being changed, the fruit was off, the eggs were off and there were usually no dishes on which to eat food on because there were not enough staff to wash the dishes on time! The selection was dismal and most people I met said they usually skipped it and went out to eat rather than experience it each morning. This is not only a health hazard but a complete rip-off considering the prices for the rooms. A health inspector should be sent to this hotel.

    The hotel is very close to airport and metro station, very close to downtown.

    Just the location. Downtown, in the heart of the business district

    I checked-in at about 18:00 and there was no towels and soap for a shower. I complain about that and they took 45 minutes to supply it. My fridge was empty and I asked them to provide me some water. They told me that it would take 10 to 15 minutes, but it never happened.

    Location

    High price considering the facilities. I just stayed there because there were no vacancy in others hotels. For the same price it is possible to stay in a better place. There were mosquitos in the room. Tv set was old, few channels. There were no rooms for no smokers. Staff seemed to be frustraded working there, so they were not very nice and polite.

    Everything. No room service, no cleaning tables at breakfast, no glass inside the room to drink water! The hotel is clearly taking advantage of the high demand of passengers, but I assure that a customer with a minimum of good taste will have only one experience at this hotel. Additionally, they charged one extra day, in spite I had informed two days before I will be leaving early. It´s the worst hotel I´ve ever stay in Rio.

    Absolutely nothing. Leaving !!

    The dreadful stench of stale cigarette smoke throughout the hotel including the bedroom even though I had requested a non- smoking room and Brazil has a "no smoking in public places law" as we do.

    the location

    i didn't like that, the hotel stuff didn't speak English, so we couldn't understand each other.

    Its downtown location: good for for business meetings within the downtown area in Rio de Janeiro. Although its facilities are not appropriate for business meetings .

    Lack of free internet access in the rooms.

    The only positive thing of this hotel is the location

    I didn't like the room, it is really bad. THey didn't even make the room...there isn't internet connection in the rooms (I was willing to pay for that service), the bathroom is awful. I never will come back to this hotel!!!!
