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 conditioning was good and so was the breakfast buffet. The TV was good and it is close to a plaza and a pedestrian drag with good restaurants. We were cautioned but nothing untowards happened to us. We walked around with restaurant patios extending on to streets. It was quiet on Sunday morning we walked to some churches and older buildings and construction/renovations going on.
In Rio, people over 65 can use the local transportation for free. The modern train to the port area was great with a lot of security.More
