We travelled to Rio to attend my son's wedding and needed lodging. We had 10 people in our group. Others had booked their rooms either directly or through other web sites.

Guests who stay at hotels in Rio de Janeiro will experience an adventure, because the city is surrounded by lush forests, white beaches, and beautiful blue seas. Rio de Janeiro is best known for its festivals, like Carnaval and the Samba School Parade, both of which are thrilling experiences for guests staying in Rio de Janeiro hotels. Rooms are inexpensive and put you right in the middle of all the fun.
Visitors are sure to enjoy the live music at Centro Cultural Telemar, with its six-story ultra-modern exhibition space and multimedia architecture built for film and theater performances.
Guests will love all of the various culinary influences of the eclectic Gourmet Praia on Av. Viera Souto, or the authentic Portuguese style of Antiquarius on Rua Aristides Espinola.
From anywhere in the city, guests will be able to spot the Cristo Redentor, a 38 meter-tall statue atop the corcovado. The statue is lit up at night and is visible from nearly anywhere in Rio de Janeiro.
Found right on the beach are many shops and department stores where you can find anything from swimwear at Draco Store, to a digital camera at Casa & Video.
Rio de Janeiro prides itself on being a population of die-hard soccer fans who religiously watch games at Maracana Football Stadium. Guests at Rio de Janeiro hotels will get a real kick out of cheering along with the roaring fans.
Excellent hotel!!!!, near to the beach, very good staff, excellent restaurant and breakfast!!!!!
The hotel is new so the rooms are still fresh. The wifi works great and the restaurant had great options kudos to the chef! The hotel is close to the beaches both Copocabana and Ipanema, walking distance. I loved the price point of this hotel because you are close to premium places without paying a premium. There are great restaurants near so stay here!!! My only caveat is that we had to stay on the first floor and we felt like we were in a dungeon, nothing wrong with the room but we couldn't open the windows l. It's not really a complaint just an observation. Stay here!
Great location and staff. Highly Recommended. The front desk was really special and the breakfast was amazing.
Excellent experience. Valet parking only ($6/day). Currency exchange at competitive rate. Unbeatable location in Barra Da Tijuca. Great view from top floor pool. Friendly and helpful staff, nearby restaurants, safe neighborhood. Rooms are spacious and look renovated. Breakfast is hearty and delicious. Would definitely recommend.
