After an overnight flight we wanted a place to recover for a couple of nights and booked this place as being well located near Rio city centre. Thats about all this hotel has going for it.
On arrival we pointed out that there were no batteries in the room safe and were promised some the following morning but they never arrived, neither did the second bath towel we were promised. The towels we did get were worn and grubby looking.
Breakfast was simple and the room it was served in was small, only 12 seats, and the view was of a hole in the wall where the aircon unit was missing and of a yard outside with stained mattresses and junk. On the second day there was no bread for toast and we waited for 20 mins after asking for some before giving up on the idea.
The hotels website and the entry on bookings.com is misleading as the photo is of a much bigger room and has been distorted to make the room look bigger.
The location is good and if we had paid much less we would not have been so disappointed with the place which overall was fairly clean and the staff were friendly.
