“Nice”
Reviewed 10 March 2014

A nice hotel in middle of nowhere...(-:
Actually it's in a 10 - 15 minutes walking distance from the Sambodromo, and that's
why we have chose it to stay an o/n...
Rooms are nice (good a/c, bed as well). Breakfast was ok as well.
It's a good hotel in the wrong place... but still not that far from the Metro st.
(you can always catch a cab...)

This hotel has been renovated and the rooms are good. Unfortunately, the management is not up to the mark and messes up very badly.

We made reservations at this hotel as early as May 2013 and informed them that our group would arrive on a certain date and time in October 2014 and advised them that we would need dinner that night. We were 24 in the group and the standard of rooms given were different, there was no dinner, A la catre orders were taken and no food after nearly 2 hours. All in all, they were like dumb ducks and looked liked they could not handle a small group booking.

Their breakfast was good and the lady and man in the restaurant at breakfast were on time and excellent. That was the only consolation.

Room Tip: See the room before checking in.

Good hotel, would recommend if you don't want to stay and pay the airport hotel fee.
Clean rooms and good hotel restaurant. Not a place to wander the streets or sightsee. Metro is pretty close. The receptionists do not speak English.

my wife and I only stayed here one night, thank god.
we had flown in to rio late and just wanted a bed close to the bus station as we were getting the bus to Buzios the next morning.
cheap,basic and it might have been ok for 1 nights sleep other than the fact that the air con unit was as loud as the plane we had come to rio on! not good....

This is an excellent hotel in the wrong area! If you just need a very comfortable place to lay your head, and are happy to take a 5 minute walk to and from the Metro in daylight, and a taxi at night, then this hotel is ideal. If you want to stroll around at night and find pleasant bars and restaurants, forget it! We didn't feel particularly unsafe, but the area is just run down. Can't fault room comfort and cleanliness, breakfast was excellent, and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful, and some spoke English. Somebody spent a great deal of money building and furnishing this hotel, pity they didn't choose a better location!

We stayed 10 days in this hotel. Rooms are spacious and clean. Breakfast is awesome with a huge variety of item. The kitchen staff is very courteous and attentive.
There is a nice parking for your car.
Wifi connection is good and high speed broadband.
The hotel just need to improve the courtesy of their staff at the front desk as well as improve the billing process. It took us more than 15 minutes to get a wrong bill. When I complained about the time taken to get the bill and pointed out the error done by the hotel, the front desk staff shouted saying that she was doing her work. I politely asked her to low her voice and she told me that is her normal tone of voice. I think she needs to be trained to behave properly with a customer who had spent around US$ 1,000 in his stay.

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms in the rear of the building. The front rooms are too noisy because there is a high...

We stayed at the Gallant during Carnival and enjoyed our stay. It is close to Estacio metro and actually walkable from the Sambodromo. Admittedly it is a love hotel, but the rooms are large, very clean, with air-con, we had a balcony, bathroom was a good size with hot water and I loved the big shower. Breakfast was yummy and the staff friendly. The hotel has WIFI, they also have a couple of computers you can use free of charge. The only thing I found uncomfortable was the air-con blowing directly on me when sleeping, as it is located on the same level as the bed.
