Better than you would expect

I have stayed in many hotels in Rio, and this one ranks as my second favorite. It is an older hotel, but what you get for the value is very good. You're located in Centro, in a safe and accessible part of the downtown area. The only negatives are that the elevator was not really working when I was there, and there are not many restaurants close by. But the rooms are clean, renovated, and the cable TV is better than most.

Don't stay in Zona Sul if you are visiting Rio. Prices are just way too overinflated.

Comfortable

Great location. Old fashioned hotel, but neat. One needs to be used to taking stairs. Hard beds. Wonderful stay. Nice breakfast. Awesome location. I would definitely stay here again as long as I'm not trying to impress anyone.

terrible mistake

Scary! This hotel has not been updated since it was built the electricity has those old outlets and you can not plugg in your computer or hair dryier the hotel does not provide with an adaptor, in order to use the elevator you have to call the reception so that an employee can run it or use the stairs, homeless sleeping around it, very unconfortalbe beds and the pillows are dirty and smely, the air conditioner is manual and the charges for internet usage are very high that is besides been a very expensive ONE STAR HOTEL the pictures shown in the web page belong to another hotel.

Horrible hotel do not bother

This hotel was really bad. Supposed a 3 star and I would rate it as -3. The elevator did not work and I had to walk down 7 flights of stairs. The room was so noisy I could not sleep at all. The food was horrible. Do not waste your time or money. Never again.

Brazil Aeroporto Othon Travel Hotel (Rio

The hotel is not worthy of the XX1/2 rating. It's like a prison room with black roaches crawling around in the bathroom. I never went back into the room daily until about 2:00 AM when we felt seriously sleepy. This was the worst vacation ever experienced in my life. It was so painful and degrading for me to leave my nice home and stay in the worst hotel. [...]

Rio trip

I was there on vaction doing the tourist things. It would have been nice if they had CNN in English. The best thing about this hotel was its location. I was very close to public transportation. There was also a gas station across the street to get food and drink. The price of the hotel was also fair and the staff was very helpful. There are plenty of places to eat nearby. The downtown are was very lively at night during the week however on weekends it's pretty dead.
