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.

Stayed in February 2017. First, my husband booked this hotel using his miles so it was free for us for 4-nights. However, we only checked the website and not Tripadvisor anymore. From their website it really looks fabulous, in reality it's just average, perhaps like a 3-star

We stayed for a night prior to our taking a cruise. It is fairly close to cruise to the terminal (not a walking distance). One can take a metro or bus from here. This is an older hotel but still well maintained. The elevators are old and restaurant areas show age. The air

Dear, Avtar The Rio´s Presidente team thanks your comments. As mentioned, our hotel is from the 50's, we are going through a period of modernization of the entire hotel. And will include new restaurant, reception and metting rooms. Regarding the elevators, we report that we currently have 3 new elevators with less than 2 years of use and we will install another elevator that will accommodate up to 11 people.

I stayed here for nearly two weeks, late June / Early July 2016 in room 1303. The refurbishment of the hotel seems to be nearly complete, it looked as if floor 5 and below were still unchanged. My room was absolutely fine. The bed was firm (how I like it) and the small wardrobe

The Rio's President team appreciates your attention and comment! We are a hotel from the 50's and we are undergoing renovations to better serve our clients. As you said, our terrace is completely new, as well as the gym, sauna and bar. And the Centro of Rio, where we are located, is part of the cultural center of our city. Rio de Janeiro was capital of the Brazilian Empire and after of Brazil Goverment and in 1960 that´s became Brasilia. The theater that is located at the left of our hotel was built by Emperor Pedro the Second. The Rio's Presidente Hotel, awaits you in a new visit to the city of Rio de Janeiro!

Very Old Hotel! Actually looks like a brazilian motel! The bedroom is very old! Bathroom is ok. They're reformulating it so there's material construction everywhere! Wifi is ok and reachs the room. Breakfast is really poor! 10 minutes walk from the next subway station!

Não é muito próximo das praias, você pode pegar o metro no largo da carioca bem pertinho do hotel ou pegar ônibus na lapa Av. Rio Branco e ir para as praias. Atentar para o perigo ao redor do hotel a noite, muitos assaltos o índice é alto e muitos moradores de rua e drogados.

"Good service, Nice team"
"We were on a higher floor and it was quiet."
"The front rooms face a moderately busy road, the rear ones a quiet-ish back area. You'll still hear the clubs come the weekend though."
"far from this hotel"
"We were on a high floor but it seemed to be only closer to the construction going on outside!"
