“OK, but not the best”
Reviewed 7 February 2012

I stayed here for a week. When I checked in I first didnt get the room I booked. I got a small room with 2 twin beds, while I booked for a double bed. So I asked the bellboy for this. He first said he didnt had it, but when I told him I booked for it, he gave me another room. This was a huge room with view on the Christ. So I think it wasnt correct first giving me the bad room. Anyways, the breakfast was ok. Staff wasnt too nice. They charged me 2 times for things i didnt do. First they said I took 2 whiskey from the minibar, I didnt take. Then they charged me for a extra person in the room. I actualy got quite mad about it. So be carefull if you check your bill. I didnt had to pay for these things, but just had the feeling they try to rip you off. When I got mad they apologised. And said it were just mistakes. Well sorry i dont get it? How can you make a mistake like this?

They also requested me to pay half of the bill after 4 days. Just locked my door. I didnt feel too good about this. The good things to the hotel is the location, close to the subway Largo de marchado, close to flamengo beach. And the room looked very clean (sleeping part) and big rooms. And a jacuzzi. Bathroom was not the best look, bit dark and walls were not that clean, but I enjoyed the private jacuzzi.

Room Tip: I had a room on the front site, which was huge, the ones in the back I saw it was small.

we stayed there for 2 nights and i was happy when we checked out.
our room was small, very old fashioned, the air condition was loud, the bathroom was also small and there was a hole in the bathtub - so no chance to use the jacuzzi. the bathtub was also slack - a challenge when you got a shower.
the breakfast was ok (average).
the only positive thing was the location - you are close to bars, restaurants and the flamingo-beach.

It's a very simple hotel in a nice area of town. Not as fancy as Copacabana, Ipanema or Leblon, but Flamengo is a quite nice area. Close to Largo do Machado and to the Flamengo Beach (good to walk/run, not so good to swim) this hotel is a nice option if you are not in the mood to spend a lot of money for a room.
My bill was 170 Reais a day (close to £55 a day) for a double.
And with Jacuzzi and Sauna in the room!!! :-) Also free internet (slow and no wireless, but free) and Breakfast.
Not a 5 star hotel, but good enough!
