Positive Reviews

Well-situated for nightlife

Travellers specify that the hotel is easily accessible to most parts of Rio de Janeiro, as it is located in the vibrant downtown area and less than a kilometre from Brazil Central Station. Bars, restaurants, and nightclubs are scattered around the immediate neighbourhood, giving them lots of choices for nightlife activities.

Commendable staff service

The staff members receive ample positive reviews from guests. Reviewers acknowledge their helpful assistance and round-the-clock availability, as well as their generally friendly and accommodating attitude.

Negative Reviews

Second-rate cleanliness

Guests speak lowly about the quality of the accommodations. All of the rooms are described as unclean and overall uncomfortable, including the en-suite bathrooms. They say the floors and the in-room amenities are dusty, while the room itself reeks of cigarette smoke.

Poor sound insulation

Visitors complain about the ineffective soundproofing of the rooms. They explain that noises from nearby nightclubs and establishments can easily penetrate into the rooms, especially at night. They further illustrate that the sounds of vehicles passing by and revving on the street outside are irritatingly audible.

Disappointing Wi-Fi access

The Internet service within the hotel is heavily criticised by guests. According to reviews, the Wi-Fi connection runs at slow speeds and unstable connectivity at its best. Guests even mention that sometimes, the Wi-Fi is almost non-existent.
