In a nutshell:
Stayed here for a night, no major complaints. If you get it at a great price and aren't fussy, no problem. Most of the recent reviews seem correct.
Instead of a costly cab ride from the airport you can take the airport bus for R40 as I did and walk from Praca da Republica stop for a couple of blocks if you aren't daunted by the post-apocalyptic downtown core.
-decent breakfast with awesome fruit
-helpful front desk with caveat
-in-room wifi was excellent
-plenty of restos, bars and metro very nearby, you can buy whatever you need from the streets
-didn't hear guest noises
-there's a construction site next door, looks like it will take several months, they start heavy equipment at 8am
-any phone that rings in any adjacent room sounds like it's ringing next to your bed
-musty smell in room and bed
-run-down area (applies to much of downtown to be fair)
-I could communicate with reception using Spanish but not English
-only two 'hot' items for breakfast and the eggs were stone cold
-those staying with someone else might be put off by the bathroom glass that is more a barrier than a true door.
