- The hotel was cheaper than many others in Rio
- The hotel was very clean
- The people at the front desk were helpful
- The free breakfast was better than you would normally get in Brazil
- The hotel is close to the Santos Dumont airport (you can walk there in 20 minutes), which is also useful...
The hotel is close to the Lapa arches and everything you'd like to see in Lapa are within walking distance. The rooms were clean and comfortable with a hot shower and large tv. The staff didn't speak much English and looked unhappy everytime I passed by. My biggest complaint is I woke up to small ants everywhere on the bed...
