The area where it is located is undergoing a major revitalization since is placed in the area of the "Marvelous Port" project, which includes the museum MAR (Art Museum of Rio), the future Museum of Tomorrow (Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava), the Pier Maua, the new headquarters of the Bank of Brazil, Rio Trump Tower, the headquarters of Tishman Speyer (the British architect Norman Foster). These are some examples of projects that are under development in the region, and are all near the Pompeu Rio Hotel.

Buenas noches. El checkin se puede hacer a partir de las 14 horas del día de su llegada. Estamos abiertos 24 horas. Puede realizar su checkin a ese horario. De todos modos, fíjese, que si llega el viernes 27/04 a la 1:00h, dormirá la noche del 26/04 y por tanto necesitará tener su reserva para entrada el día 26/04. Si acaso no estuviera así, no se preocupe, pues en la propia recepción pueden hacer la modificación y puede realizar el pago adicional directamente en el hotel.

Bom dia, Como todo bairro do Rio, temos que ter certos cuidados para caminhar a noite. A recepção é 24 horas, e podem entrar e sair a qualquer horário. O checkin começa 14h, mas pode realizá-lo em qualquer horário depois. Atenciosamente.
