Best location possible. Around the corner from a lively square (Largo de Machado) and Metro stop with many busses, including the ones who go to Cristo Redentor. Also, away from the tourist trade of Copa, but very near it. Drab breakfast room and no comfortable lobby space. But great otherwise.
Booked quite late for world cup stay and we got a real deal, friendly staff, very good location, clean rooms, staff spoke English and very professional and friendly. Area of hotel was very safe and lots of restaurants nearby
