My review of Hotel Monte Castelo & Lapa
My main stay was in Copacabana from Fri-mon. But I was arriving in Rio on a Thursday so i needed somewhere to stay for cheap for one day. I booked Hotel Monte Castelo because it was extremely affordable ($36 a night) with good reviews. The hotel staff are super friendly and helpful. I was a little skeptical before arriving, not knowing how the local people would actually be. I was shocked to find out that the people of Rio are very nice, helpful, and full of life. This is the perfect hotel to stay at if you want to be right in the middle of a cultural location away from Copacabana. The staff are great, the area is filled with bars (like most of Rio) that are owned and operated by local people. I really fell in love with Lapa after my stay here. I would highly recommend this to the single traveler who is maybe going from place to place. All of the reviews with people praising this hotel for the friendly staff/vibrant area are exactly true. At night time it does look a little sketchy, but you will be shocked to find out that as bad as it may look at night, there is no need to be afraid. I walked a few blocks down the road to a bar/food joint and the people were all great. Here in america when you see a bad looking area, most likely you will run into bad/rude people. But here in Rio, when you see bad looking areas you will run into amazing people. Its something different about the people of Rio, they seem to cherish family, friends, and their community.

Good overall
It's a quick trip for Rio. Room itself is small which is I don't have a problem but mattress is not comfortable. I've hard time to sleep on this mattress. Breakfast is good. There is a selection of fruit which is I love. Location is 5 mins walk from metro( Gloria station) and near grocery store.

Great place to stay!
The location - a block from the Gloria subway station - is fabulous. Every single staff member was so helpful and all of the front desk staff were fluent in English and willing to do anything they could to make the stay and trip enjoyable and easy. They have GREAT connections for organized tours that are better and less expensive than you will find online. The neighborhood is definitely working class, which means grocery, pharmacy, and quaint eating spots are available. I would definitely stay there again!

Poor1.0 / 5
Our room was down 2 flights of stairs below street level and had no window to the outside. There was mold in the bathroom. There were also silverfish in the shower. The breakfast was ok. It was not a three star hotel. The neighborhood was nice but there was a bar next door. We heard no noise in the sub basement but we heard others say the there was noise on the street until 3am. Very basic but dirty.

Underground rooms--'nuf said
My wife and I stayed in for 5 days from after Christmas through New Year's Day. I'll start with the positive. It's in a quiet residential neighborhood that felt very safe and had lots of restaurants and snack places. It's about 5 minutes walk to the nearest Metro station and on Sunday there's a farmer's market there. Now the bad, which we mostly knew about because all the vacation rentals we contacted were charging marked up prices for the holiday season, so this was our last resort. The room we got was extremely basic and required going down 2 flights of stairs to reach. That's right, down, which means hardly any natural light except for the lightwell from above. Although this meant we got lots of sleep, it also meant we slept all morning. The breakfast was beyond basic and we never ate it except the first day since better options were around the corner. The bed was not very comfortable but at least the AC worked well. The bathroom was tiny and we could barely squeeze through the door to it (and we're tiny Asians). The lighting in the room was just 3 bare CFLs which made it kind of gloomy. They do provide a fridge and safe. Overall, stay here if you must or if you can get a better room, preferably with a window, but otherwise this should be low on your list of options.
