    Superb

    The hotel is clean. The hotel is near to cultural atractions of Rio. Buses that go to Lapa stop just in front of the hotel and main bus streams are closed to the hotel (Cinelandia metro is 5 min walking). Transport (airport bus-taxi/ taxi-airport bus) from and to the airport was not either a problem.

    Night life is very noisy, try to get a room that is not closed to the street.

    This is a very simple hotel, but the location is excelent. We could easily find transportation to any place in the city. Besides, we were in one of the most interesting streets in Lapa. We saved a lot of money staying there so we could visit more places in Rio! I would reccomend to those who doesn't care about fancy hotel services - the best things are outside ;)

    The hotel wasn't very clean (cleaner on the first day), and the breakfast was too little.

    It has a fairly central location and is extremely cheap for the city standards. Next door to some great samba clubs.

    The staff doesn't speak English.

    Good location in the Centro part of Rio, close to some nice evening hangout spots and with easy metro access.

    Room was tolerable only because of location relative to attractions in the area. Breakfast was miniscule... Rooms tiny and not really clean... Wifi sporadically accessible from room. Stayed overnight with my girlfriend and, being used to North-American standards, I was a bit ashamed that this was the best I could find in the area for under a couple of hundred bucks a night. Not recommended for a serious romantic evening. :$

    good location, right in the middle of lapa

    Rooms with window on the street are very noising

    Fabulous

    Hotel is in the heart of LAPA district. You will enjoy proximity of the major city night attractions. Room is small (without window) but clean.

    The location is okay, right on the Lapa bar/nightlife district. Convenient bus connections to almost everywhere in Rio, Cinelandia Metro station was just a short walk away. Plenty of reasonably priced places to eat an drink nearby.

    The bathroom smelled of urine the entire 4 days I stayed there. I don't know why they don't clean it properly or if the find the smell acceptable. The room had no windows. There was a door to a small balcony, but it's not worth opening. The window ac was cold had only one setting (high), and I had to unplug it at night when it became too cold.

    Fabulous

    Cheap, well located, staff are friendly and quite helpful, despite having no english or french whatsoever. We got by on pidgin spanish. Sheets were clean and water was hot enough to be comfortable (just barely), A/C was abundant and wifi was quick as well. All in all a good deal.

    Very basic, our room in the courtyard had a sketchy feel but was, objectively, perfectly acceptable. Regardless, can't beat the price/location.

    Staff doesn't speak any language but their own

    The hotel is very poor, not clean at all and also I don't know why we can't get out of the hotel with the room key. Also we check in about one clock and came back 2 ou 3 hours later they were in our room cleaning the ceiling fan and the door was opened and the sheets all duty. We made a complaint they did not accept, it was a horrible experience.

    Good location. Clean rooms.

    The room was very small and the bed was small as well. Price is high for what is offered.

    Location was good. There was lots of restaurants and bars at the street.

    Too noisy. If you choose this hotel, take good earplugs with you. WiFi didn't work very well.
