Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I was marooned by my airline and didn't know where to go. I sought shelter at the Linx Galeão and was delighted with my choice. The layout of the property is generous and airy. It feels more like a posh college campus than a hotel. Free airport shuttle takes 5 minutes every 20 minutes.

The delightful team at Reception, Stella and Evelyn first and foremost, looked after my every want. When I ended up staying several days they suggested I might enjoy moving to a poolside room and I was very happy with the change. The highlight of the hotel for me is the magnificent vanishing pool. Sporting 40M of length it's like having an Olympic-size pool at your hotel and often you have it all to yourself with Fagner, the dutiful lifeguard! The adjacent gym is excellent. The restaurant is a fantastic resource, with wonderful soup, chicken, beef and delicious salmon filets plus traditional rice and feijoada. Wiljam and Sergio will look after your every need there.

On departure I needed a recommendation for a hotel at Guarulhos Airport in São Paulo and the General Manager Gulhelmo provided me with a very handy and practical suggestion. I thank him and his team for making my unexpected stay such a delight. I look forward to returning to this hotel anytime I am in Rio: Even with alluring Copacabana and Ipanema tempting me away the exceptional price/value combination make this marvelous property an enjoyable and competitive option. Thank you to the whole team at Linx Galeão!

You could not have a handier location than this for an early flight from the airport. The friendly staff will help arrange the shuttle for you. There is a little restaurant inside the hotel which has filling meals of adequate quality for your stay (overnight I presume). Overall, perfectly satisfactory. The rooms are small but cosy and you won't want too big a space if you stay the night before your departure. The silhouette painting of Christo Redentor on the wall is a nice touch.

We stayed here as a family twice due to international flights. Fist time it was great. Reception was superb and Gregorio was very helpful. There's a free transfer to the airport (5min away) every 20 min. Rooms were clean and basic, great for short stays. Water pressure in the shower was amazing.
Second stay was not so good. When we arrived for the transfer the motorist allowed a bunch of adults to get in front of us and left us behind with two small children (!!!). Granted, he didnt wait the full 20 min to come back for us. I dont know if reception was stressed but they were a bit moody that day. Next day breakfast was not good. There was no fresh water, milk, eggs, yogurt, plates, there were not being replaced and we had to ask many times for things to eat. I really don't know what could have happened in 2 weeks for the hotel to transform from super cool to not so much.
Hope the place can be like the first stay and check with the employees what happened.

Our stay at the Linx Galeão hotel was a very pleasant experience. The hotel is located right by the Rio GIG international airport.
The hospitality of the employees was on point, they are friendly and a few of them know a bit of English to give you information and answer questions. It is way out of the main downtown Rio so plan traveling out and back before rush hours, as traffic does build up on that highway. Rio is a dense city so it makes sense.
The amenities are all easily enjoyed at the entrance and the second floor for the pool and bar during the day. We enjoyed chillin' by the infinity pool.
The rooms are very spacious, and although not in any perfect viewing location, it makes up for in having a comfortable bed and seating and desk table space. They have a restaurant that stands in for the morning breakfast location (free if you're booked with the hotel), and it has lunch hours and dinner hours. We liked having dinner there and they have good local specialties or common US food for your preference.
Their breakfast options were simple and very tasty. Brazilian breakfast is not continental but a very consistent scrambled egg, hot-dog like sausage in a red sauce (not spicy), or a chopped kielbasa sausage… anyway discover it for yourself, the options are tasty and filling.
We ate at the restaurant in the Linx Galeão hotel for dinner twice. And the staff in the restaurant Andrea, Laysa, and Manuela. All phenomenal, pleasant people. All food is priced very well and the portions are way more than enough.
The location is the selling point, and the free shuttle to the GIG airport is a great perk. We were at ease that when our last day in Rio came, after we got to the hotel from our last excursion, could quickly grab our belongings and grab the shuttle to fly out and catch it. Definitely recommend the Linx Galeão hotel for your future stay in Rio!

I am not sure where all the amazing reviews came from. Guessing they were written by the staff :) . The place is as basic as a college dorm. The rooms are small, bare to the bone basic and uninviting. The location is isolated and will require having a car to go eat or sightseeing. The only reason to stay here is if you have an early flight the following morning since it is located 3 minutes away from the airport.

My son and I came to this Hotel after journeying in Sau Paulo and the Iguaza Falls. We were so tired when we finally arrived at this Hotel. The Staff was so kind and gentle with us. They offered us free bottled water and information about RIO and Sugar Loaf and Christ the Redeemer. We were strangers and the front desk staff truly made us feel safe and at home. Our room was lovely, the bathroom was clean, and we knew we hit the jackpot when even the flight crew of our plane came to this hotel. The Van that brought us to the hotel was large, new and the driver was friendly, despite our late arrival. YES! I highly recommend this hotel for your trip to RIO! You won't be disappointed.

We stayed here on our way home from a fun family holiday. It's a great location by the airport to unwind before our night flight home. We enjoyed our meal and after a quick trip to revisit Sugar Loaf were able to unwind by the pool.
Isabelle, Evelyn and Gregori on the desk were very helpful.

Stayed here 1 night before our long flight home the next day. Upon arrival at airport got free shuttle service to hotel which was very easy to find. Five minutes later we were at hotel and we were welcomed by 2 young men that actually spoke English. Rooms were big and most importantly clean. The only bad thing was the aircon was too loud. Service in the restaurant was great. The two young lads were corteous and polite. Lunch was good but a bit dissapointed in the evening as food was almost same as lunch with just few bits added. Pool area was a bonus. Very relaxing. Happy hour was good but i would rather do 2 for 1 drinks instead of doing double measure. Drink super strong this way. But this is only my opinio. All in all great hotel and would definately stay here again. Already reccomended it to friends which are coming to rio for Christmas next year. Thank you all for a great stay.

We stayed here for one night as we flew into Rio quite late. It’s perfect for one night stays if you have an early/late flight. The rooms are quite basic but clean and quiet, the bed was comfortable. Breakfast was ok and there are snacks and a few sandwiches for sale if you want something quick to eat. The infinity pool is lovely. The hotel is a few minutes walk from Terminal 2, but it’s easier to catch the free shuttle bus. It goes every 20 minutes from Porte D on the upper floor of Terminal 2. A taxi into the city costs about 30 US dollars and can take ages because the traffic is often very bad.

Located just three minutes away, it was a good choice we made when we had a 7 hour layover in GIG. Shuttle every twenty minutes was very comfortable and seemed regular. Pick up at airport is from the 2nd floor. Exit gate C and cross the road to the center. Hotel instructions were not very clear and we spent precious time to find pickup location. Buffet dinner was good value for money. Special mention of Lian of the front desk. Very friendly, helpful and a personality that reminded me of Richard Qwest of CNN!
