I want to write a review of this hotel because it stuck in mind as one of the worst hotel experiences even if it happened long ago.
We found the room quite dirty, smelly, almost every detail was broken or in a poor state.
Windows and blinds were a joke, looked like they have been roughly re-painted decades before without being dismounted and then never been completely opened or closed since because they just got stuck as they were!
So we didn't get much sleep because there was a loud samba school playing music until 4 am. Luckily the music was very nice....!
The restaurant made us especially regret sitting in because we could not believe the price they were charging for that cheap greasy food and those sticky tables.
The area is lively and vibrant but we witnessed a robber trying to break into a closed shop just in front of the hotel as if no one was watching. He desisted only when he realized that we were staring at him.
The personnel at the reception was nice and tried to be helpful but could not change the bottom line: the hotel was dirty, in a very bad state and outrageously overpriced.
Oh, and of course, we had to pay extra for using wifi and the safe!
