So far not impressed...looks more like a Days Inn style type hotel. Small rooms, poor bed sheets. Let's see by day 10 of our stay how it goes. No front door Usher. However, if you plan to stay in Centro of Rio, may not be...More
I stayed there for a few days. The food was average. The wifi was bad both at 6th and 10th floor. The rooms were ok. One of the rooms didn't have a chair for the desk.
The personnel were great! Very nice and polite. The...More
Service was excellent! Roberto at the front desk speaks English and he was very willing to help us with getting around Rio. Some of the other staff also spoke English. One gentleman actually ran out into the street in the rain to hail us a...More

Downtown Rio is the place where this city was born. With modern skyscrapers sharing space with historical buildings and landmarks, this neighbourhood is living proof that the old and the new can live together harmoniously. As you would expect, downtown is where all major companies house their offices. However, the region isn’t restricted to businesses. Gems such like the “Paço Imperial,” which is a cultural centre that
used to serve as a residence for governors of Brazil, can be found here. Pedra do Sal, a Monday night street party, is also in this neighbourhood. This landmark is the birthplace of samba and is famous for its “roda de sambas” (“dance circles”). Stop in for one and get closer to discovering where Brazilian happiness comes from.
