The hotel looks splendid from the outside, and offered really excellent customer services/very friendly staff. The room was, however, a bit dissapointing. The furniture was old, and the room was not very cozy. Not too impressed by the cleaning either.
Breakfast was good, but the eggs, sausages etc were only luke warm. Could have wished for some bigger variation of food stuffs.
The location of the hotel, is excellent. A short walk to the Rio Sul shopping mall, which is massive. Several good restaurants. Close to the metro. Close to Cobacabana beach, beautifull Urca and the Sugarloaf mountain.
I recommend the hotel due to the good prices, breakfast, location and friendly staff. They should, however, spend some money to shine up the rooms.
