“Second Time Around Not As Good”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

I stayed in two different Hotels in this this Trip (2-9 of May 2014) I was not hapy at the first hotel, and move here because it left me with a favorable impression form my stay last year.
However, thought he same friendly staff were here, there were several problems!
Hairy snakes in the bathroom! about 6 in long and ugly and I made them move me ot a different room.
Second problem that outraged me was the internet. It is available here but not free, it costs you $3.00 US a day, but what they don't tell you is that it DOES NOT WORK!
You can only sit in the reception and use it, so there was a crowd of people in the small reception area all irritated by the same issue!
Also, the mattress in y room was dirty and grubby, I think they have a nerve having guests sleep on it.
The rooms are the, simple and clean with air conditioning and a free simple breakfast that is not bad for free! The old CRT TV's have about 4 local channels not worth watching but the rooms are nice and quiet!

I don't recommend this place any more unless you can't get a room anywhere else, or don't need Internet, don't mind hairy snakes and can live simply!

Room Tip: Get an upstairs room, seems like the hairy snakes are only on the ground floor!

I arranged for friends in Rio to find me a safe clean budget hotel with internet and breakfast included. They came up with this hotel and I liked it a lot. Simple rooms with TV and local channels, a basic breakfast was included in my room rate of $70.00 per night (for up to two adults)
There was three narrow beds in my room, it was air-conditioned and had wireless internet that worked well though you must log back on every 24 hours.
Some of the staff were very friendly and helpful, others not so helpful, only Manuel (in photo) spoke English. They can also arrange for some tours and you will be picked up and returned ot the hotel, my hosts took me everywhere so i did not need to use this service.
Lots of restaurants and shopping within a 10 minute walk, also a beach-front 15 minutes walk (across two busy and wide boulevards)
If you are looking for a budget hotel, that is safe, with internet and breakfast included and don't mind basic but clean comfortable rooms, this is a good option. Better rooms are available elsewhere if you don't mind paying a lot more! This place suited me just fine!

Room Tip: Avoid rooms near the reception on the first floor! on the third night a torrential downpour flooded...

The location is very good but it's not a nice hotel to stay in. The room was very basic and, although it was reasonably clean, it looked very grubby. The English speaking receptionist was very friendly and helpful. Bathroom was basic and small.

Room Tip: don't stay here!
