          To describe this hotel as 3 star is very deceiving. This is a 1 star facility. I struggle to call it a hotel. The rooms are awful. They are grubby, poorly furnished and the bathrooms are ancient. The "restaurant" is awful.

          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

          all major companies house their offices. However, the
