Several reviews here say that this hotel is too expensive for the services provided, but we are talking about Rio de Janeiro and I will explain how the things run in Rio: you will pay alot money for a poor service, rude people and be treated like an idiot, it is Rio de Janeiro.
Why? Several things are related, social issues, people trying to get things easier, lack of civility. In other words, why WorlCup is such mess? Why corruption and impunity are normal? Cause the brazilian society is like this and it reflect all arround.
Let me resume my review. This hotel is old, the higher floors got a basic renovation, but the best thing is the location. Few meters from Catete Street, this place has everything that you need (bank, several places to eat, easy to get taxi) and one block far from Catete Subway. Easy access to South zone, best beaches and downtown, whatever the reason of your stay, either business or vacation, the location is amazing.
The rooms has a good size, well cleaned, reasonable bathroom. The neighbourhood is quiet at night and will provide a good night's sleep. The breakfast is good, couple options of fruits and breads and the stuff are solicitous.
A Hotel on range of $100 with US or Europe pattern is a impossible dream for Rio de Janeiro and most part of Brazil.
If you want to visit Brazil and get good quality of service, either you will spend alot money in Rio or go to São Paulo or other places on south. São Paulo has the best quality of service of Brazil so far.
Rondonia Hotel is OK, will provide a good rest and has fast access to top places of Rio for $100, believe, it is cheap on Rio!
