The bald-head man at the hotel reception is not polite enough. He is rude. Otherwise we would have had a great stay in Rio de Janeiro. I will never go back there at Botafogo Novotel. On the other hand the room attendant and the restaurant staff were very pleasant, excellent.

on Arrival Room Key not working, down again with luggage and up again to the Room after a 20hours trip. The Stuff very unfriendly - I am a platinum Member - but not even a Please or Thank you ... it was just like ... Credit Card ... Passport etc.

In the Room still dirty Kleenex next to the bed ... believe it or not they stayed there for 3 days I Need go to the reception frequently because the Key is not working and other guest I met in the Elevator has the same Problems but the stuff and reception explained that it is my fault... - I showed them the pictured of the Kleenex and ask them friendly to clean the room well. ... next day no shampoo in the room ... they forgott to pick up the laundy ... sorry to say but this is one of the worst Hotels according to the Service I ever been. The Stuff is more than unfriendly in the end of the day i am sure this was my last stay in this Hotel

This quite new 4-star Novotel of Acor brand is well designed. The best thing is the localization, just close of south area, airport and main touristic attractions. The rooms are all very spacious and clean. Unfortunately, you don't have a view to the Sugar loaf from the windows in every room, because most of rooms make side with buildings. There is a fitness center, with sauna and jacuzzi in the first floor. Charging aditional R$44 for the breakfast is optional for those who want to have the comfort of having the meal. The staff is kind and discret, just OK for the Brazilian standard. The main lounge has modern computers of easy access and a central bar service. Meeting rooms are available in the ground floor. This is a very comfortable hotel. You can easily reach the shopping mall Praia Botafogo and the Botafogo subway by a walking distance. There is some company's building nearby, the itaú cinema, the Church of Our Lady of Conceição and the Yoo2 hotel. Otherwise, the sidewalk is invaded by people selling books or small souvenirs. Crossing the avenue you can reach the Botafogo beach, that is inadequate for bathing due to pollution. Despite of this, I had an excellent stay with my partner and we both enjoyed all attractions nearby. Certainly, the hotel is convenient and cost-benefit recommendable.

Room Tip: Front rooms (few) have a view to Sugar Loaf, but the side rooms are less noisy.

The room was comfortable but small. You need to ask for a room with a view of the ocean or you will face a wall. It was a typical modern hotel room with lack of light and the doors opening into each other however the location was central to many places I wanted to go for my first time in Rio. I could walk to Sugarloaf mountain (20 min) and if you are a runner you can walk across the street to the beach, take a left and you are on an amazing bikepath around the coast. The bed was comfortable and the staff great. I hit my leg into the stairs on the way up for coffee and even before I sat down the person in the food reception area had a bag of ice for me. And when my fuse blew out in my room they fixed it promptly. Breakfast was ok.

Very good hotel in an underrated area of Rio. You'll be close to a beautiful beach, the bars and the metro station of Botafogo, and also to Fogo de Chao, a very very good Brazilian steakhouse.

The hotel is brand new and the rooms are very impressive for the price. We got a deal on TripAdvisor but breakfast wasn't included. It was pretty expensive for what it was but not bad. Super fast wifi!

If you have some time to explore something else than the usual Leblon/Ipanema/Copa areas, I highly recommend this hotel and the area.
