The hotel is not fancy but the bed is good, the shower is relly good and the breakfast is also really good. For me, this 3 things are the most importante in a hotel. The internet works wery well, but the most importante is the location. The hotel is located in front of a bus station, close to the metro...
On arrival in Rio, my taxi driver expressed surprise that my business had booked me the Arcos Rio Palace, mainly because of the area it's located in, Lapa. I read many reviews on here that described it as "bohemian". I'm sure it's interesting, but the advice was not to walk around alone after dark.
Anyway, on to the hotel itself....
Arcos is, as expected an old hotel located in the bohemian streets of Lapa. The locations is full of bars, dance clubs and restaurants.
Lapa is an awesome place to visit in Rio, specially considering nightlife. It is rather distant from the top beaches, though. Since it is a bohemian venue, expect to find some prostitution happening around the hotel....
