We stayed at the Aeroporto Othon Travel Hotel in Rio de Janeiro just for one night while we waited for our connection flight from Rio de Janeiro Int'l Airport and that was a nightmare. First of all, we wouldn't stay for more than 6 hours at the hotel and I asked them for an early check-in what was actually denied (Check in time was 3pm and we arrived there at 1pm). The lady at the front desk was quite rude and seemed to be unaware of my prepaid reservation. I also saw some people being checked in before time while we waited in the moldy lobby before a 1900's TV set. Second of all, the hotel is very very old, everything seems to be from 40's or 50's, starting with the elevator, it really freaked me out, you can't get on it by yourself and it takes hours to someone from the front desk go up and pick you up. The bedroom couldn't be different. It smells like mold, it's dark and furniture needs some renovation. The bed is small, even though we had a king room and the mattress is horrible, I tried unsuccessfully to sleep for a couple of hours and it really killed me, I'd rather sleep at a hostel bunk than in that hotel bed.
Neighborhood is okay, metro station to the South zone of Rio is next door and the property is next to the domestic airport from where you can go to the Int'l Airport by public transportation (it's BRL 11 and takes 30min). I would strongly recommend you stay somewhere else, there are several better hotels in the area with greater deal, actually I spent a little fortune to stay at this creepy hotel. Take my advice, STAY AWAY from Aeroporto Othon Travel while in Rio de Janeiro.
