Downtown Rio is the place where this city was born. With modern skyscrapers sharing space with historical buildings and landmarks, this neighbourhood is living proof that the old and the new can live together harmoniously. As you would expect, downtown is where all major companies house their offices. However, the region isn’t restricted to businesses. Gems such like the “Paço Imperial,” which is a cultural centre that used to serve as a residence for governors of Brazil, can be found here. Pedra do Sal, a Monday night street party, is also in this neighbourhood. This landmark is the birthplace of samba and is famous for its “roda de sambas” (“dance circles”). Stop in for one and get closer to discovering where Brazilian happiness comes from.

This place is some kind of portal to a different time and place. Everything is dated and a bit dreary.
Friendly, though a bit befuddled. It looked like the majority of staff was hired when the hotel opened (which is assume was in 1991)...More
Teh rooms are ok, clean and neat. The major down side is that the aircons only come on when you put your room card into a slot, and they take hours to cool down the room. Won;t stay here again, painful waiting for teh room...More

Taxi fares in Brazil are cheap by our standards so the cost should not be a problem. This is a very comfortable hotel for a short stay. I have cruised from Rio and found the cruise terminal to be quick and efficient. Enjoy!
