New hotel finally opens at GIG (international airport)

Hey guys,

Good news: now we don't have to worry about one of the most asked questions on our forum. A new hotel has just opened at the International Airport. It's called Linx: tripadvisor.com.br/Hotel_Review-g303506-d499…

Finally!

All the best,

Jgsodre

Might be interesting.. Perhaps not cheap cheap (yes define cheap) however a cheaper hotel may cost you more when you pay for the taxis and perhaps have problems with the traffic.

Any reviews?

From panrotas.com.br/noticia-turismo/… it appears the hotel (6 stories high) "at most" a 15-minute drive from the airport. Yet it's an airport hotel, on Ilha de Governador. Maybe enough security to be fine. The "promotional rate" of R$380 (about $172 at today's exchange rate), or R$350 for day rate (8h to 20h) is good through December.

p.s. Expedia's map shows it being right at the airport terminal. expedia.ca/… whereas a hotel rep is quoted in panrotas.com.br/noticia-turismo/hotelaria/re… as saying it would take at most 15 minutes to get from the hotel to their hotel.

Looks like the hotel hasn't been open much more than a month, so reviews may not yet be available.

They have a permanent shuttle service from the terminals to hotel and vice-versa, according to an article published on a local newspaper.

Gee for 380 reais?I would just take any hotel in Bananal for 80 reais like Mar a Vista,Guanabara Hotel and in case of emergency Hotel Flexeiro for 60 reais.All these hotels is 10 minutes from GiG with a taxi and have oceanview.

I wonder how much the fee is for the shuttle.. a bit odd as in other airports the shuttles are free.

I've heard it's a free shuttle, Curtraveller. That's what a newspaper published here...

A roundtrip airport shuttle is provided for a surcharge during limited hours

This is what I read from several sites..

I see this hotel has a free shuttle that runs until midnight. Does anyone know how you locate the shuttle or where you call them from? Also, if you arrive a little late, can you walk there? Flight is supposed to arrive at 10 p.m. but don't know how long it takes to get thru Customs/Imm??
