10/10 Exceptional

I loved the room as it has everything you need: A comfortable bed and an excellent shower - The space is small, it is optimized and we were able to comfortably accommodate our bags and backpacks. The breakfast is super complete and delicious, with fresh fruit, a delicious coffee and a variety of cold meats, breads and tea - The location of the Hotel is very good, close to coffee shops, restauntes and Botafogo subway station. Important fact: If you travel by car it is difficult to get parking, since places are not reserved and the hourly payment is expensive.

Good find
I only stayed one night but it was a great little find. The guy on reception spoke good English and was super helpful with booking an airport taxi and recommending places to eat locally.

A good affordable hotel in Rio
Stayed as a couple for 5 nights. First time in Rio. The area was fine - near Botafogo metro/Uber. Staff friendly. Cleaners were great. Breakfast in the morning was decent - nice scrambled eggs and fresh bread. Room was small but perfect for us. Shower was good. Air con worked well. Very happy and planning to stay again.
