Hotels in Rio have become ridiculously expensive in the years and Transamerica is no different. Having said that, I will not evaluate the price, as there are no cheap options in the city and being expensive is not a particular problem for this Hotel.
The location is good, far from most of tourist attractions but next malls, restaurants and ten minute walking from one of the most beautiful beaches in Rio de Janeiro (clean by the way), also the best surfing and kite surfing spots around.
The rooms are clean and fairly new. Bear in mind most Hotels in Rio have old rooms and “new price”.
I’ve been in Transamerica dozens of times in the last five years and the breakfast and quality of service has improved. My only complaint however, which has not changed in the last five years, is the fact that when the Hotel is full the service quality falls and you may wait hours to have someone answering the phone at the reception.
There is a nice swimming pool, a tennis court and a small gym.
It is one of my favorite hotels in Rio.
