We needed an over night stay near Rio's Galeao international airport due to a late arrival and early departure the next day. Having read the dreadful review of the 2 available airport hotels ( though a 3rd - the Linxx Hotel has now opened ) we decided to look further afield. We chose the Pousada Guanabara Garden and were pleasantly surprised.
It is a short 10 minute taxi ride from the airport in a quiet residential area. We found the hotel very helpful prior to our arrival answering my english language emails promptly in english and they organised an efficient airport pick up and drop off for us for 50 reais each way, with the driver meeting us at arrivals with a name banner.
The room itself was a bit dated but spacious and clean. Breakfast was superb and served on the upper floors with a great view down over the island to the bay. Although the staff on duty when we were there spoke very little speak english, they were all very friendly and coped very well with our questions.
Over all I would definitely recommend this hotel as a very good alternative to the airport hotels if you need an overnight stay and don't want the hassle of trailing into Rio proper.
