This hotel is in a great location. The rooms are really large and the staff are really friendly (even though we struggled to communicate a little). The food is good too. For the price it is definitely value for money.

I used many times this hotel, mainly for business trip, its location is very strategic, close to good restaurants, markets and to the subway.

Similar level of service, quality of rooms and facilities you would expect in any Mercure. The hotel is well located in central Botafogo close to the Santa Marta favela, many good restaurants and within a short drive of the Rio beaches.

The hotel is that know quality of Mercure Hotels. But the breakfast was a disappoint. Low variety of fruits and juices for the price. A good point was the staff (very friendly), the clearness, the price, and the location.

Very small room, but clean and everything worked. I liked the balcony, though no special view. Botafogo is a great area, and hotel is close to metro. Might stay here again. Staff varied: one charming young man who spoke good English; others diffident. No welcome drink. Good WiFi.
