The hotel is very simple. The room have a table, a small fridge, cable TV and good internet conection. The breakfast was really good, and served in the room. The staff were amazing, unfortunetly I didn't get their names, but they were all very nice and helpful. The prices, for Rio, are also good. There's a lot of bars, restaurants, buses and taxis, also one train station very close. The Selaron Staircase is just couple minutes walking from there (and worth a visit). For me, the negative points were: 1- They are refurbishing the hotel, so a lot of noise starting very early in the morning; 2- You can hear all the noise from the other room, due to the walls that are made of a kind of thin wood;
Overall I found my stay there very pleasant. Nothing dangerous, or dirty. Is Rio downtown, so don't expect the place being like Ipanema area, is like another world. If someone ask, I would recomend a stay there.
