    Fabulous

    All in, the best budget hotel I've stayed in in Rio. Decent breakfast, firm beds, quiet rooms and a quiet street. Good wifi throughout. Small rooms but immaculate and well renovated.

    Unresponsive staff. Ceiling fan in my room was not working. Reported it to staff three times. No one ever came to look at it and try to fix. Rooms windows open onto airshafts, not onto street or views.

    Superb

    The staff was extremely friendly, very helpful and genuine. The hotel is also only minutes away from Gloria subway station and buses that take you to the major tourist attractions.

    The bathroom sinks are very small and the breakfast selection could've been better. But all in all, fantastic hotel!

    The staff of the hotel is really good and client's satisfaction oriented. The location of this hotel is perfect, at 5 min walk from the "Gloria" metro station. Copacabana beach is only at 20 min door to door using the metro.

    Good

    Budget price, clean room and friendly staff.

    Smell of damp in the hotel room, is basic and small but clean. If all you need is a bed for a night or two the hotel serves its purpose at a reasonable price.

    Good

    It is just near to the Centre (walking distance) and going out places (lapa). I got very good attention and from the checkin desk. Almos all of them were very friendly and helping.

    There is no window towards outside (street side, or back side. All rooms are having windows to the ventilation hole inside of the hotel. The beds were not comfortable. The sheet were not really clean. My pillow was smelling and the sheets were dirty. I asked reception for a new set. He brought them just on my bed and took the former ones with him. So, I had to change the sheets. Breakfast is until 9am. In all other hotels it is until 10am, normaly. This is a budget hotel, for people who need a hotel for sleaping only.

    Superb

    The location: close to the city and public transportation. Security:very well policed. Neighborhood felt very secure. Very typical neighborhood. Nearby street markets for fruit and vegatables on the weekend. The bed was comfortable. For me personally, I was happy that there was no t.v. in the breakfast area., so breakfast was peaceful--and sufficient. (fruit juice, coffee...) Very helpful and friendly staff.

    Since our room was near the front desk, there were times when noise (in the form of conversation) was disturbing, but this was not a mjor problem.

    Close to subway and desk staff friendly

    Poor beds constantly shift while turning at night, meat and cheese not covered or refrigerated at breakfast which was very basic to say the least!

    Good

    Location, close to the metro and walking distance to downtown Rio. Helpfulness of the reception staff, Fabrittsio and Leo,and affordable. Good place to stay if visiting on a budget.

    Breakfast could be a bit more varied and the bathroom is a bit on the small size.

    Fabulous

    Very friendly staff who speak English and are helpful. Nice breakfast with a mix of fruits, bread, tea. Rooms are basic but comfortable and rather large. Towels and sheets changed daily. Location is amazing - near the Gloria subway station and a great lively neighbourhood. Very close to the historic downtown, the Samba district (Lapa), Flamingo Park, Santa Teresa neighbourhood (just behind the hotel), and 15 min from Ipanema and Copacabana. excellent location.

    The rooms are relatively clean but very basic. It can get muggy in the rooms.

    This hotel is fairly inexpensive, well located near a metro station and people are friendly.

    The decoration is not the asset of the hotel!

    Superb

    Despite my concerns on the location, the hotel occured to be a good deal for the money we paid. I did not have bad experience with budget hotels in Brazil, but this hotel in Rio was the best of all where I stayed in this price category. The room had modern ac, safe box, fast wifi, flat satellite tv with plenty of channels, hot water... The breakfast was basic, but ok. The staff was friendly, helpful, and multilingual. As to the location - Gloria is not Leblon sure enough, but the metro was just round the corner, and both St.Teresa and Lapa were within a walking distance. The hotel was clean and quite, and the area was very safe.

    We stayed in the hotel for 6 nights, and got the toiletries only on the first day. Actually, we did not need them and did not ask for, but this should be done automatically on daily basis in any case.

    Good

    This was my second stay at the hotel within two years; they have undergone some renovations (tv, security-box), the helpful and friendly reception staff spoke Spanish as well as English - big surprise! The location near Gloria Metro stop makes it easy to go everywhere in the city as well as to the beaches of Copacapana or Ipanema. Taxi stand right beside the hotels entrance Santos Dumont airport (where also start the shuttle bus to gig) is just a short cab ride away. There are many small and cheap supermarkets, bars and restaurants around the hotel, where you can by all your drinks and refreshments, or watch the lively street scene while enjoying your cool bottle of Brahma or Skol Beer - or even a simple, but tasty dinner. Nothing of luxury at all, but a polite, safe and genuine ambiente and athmosphere everywhere. I would definetly return.

    The breakfast is some kind of basic, but (for the price I paid) I think ok. The breakfast room itself is definetly to small, sometimes - when full - no space to enjoy your morning coffee. Advice: Go early! The Mini- bathroom´s sink is ridiculous small, but I knew from last time, and now I would not complain any more - there is no more space! One day (from 7) the maid did not make up my room (hat happend 2 years ago in the same way), and she never cleaned my ashetray. Generally those girls were not really friendly, so I did not tip.
