Center
Very dirty, bathroom falling apart and had a foul smell.

a good middle ground
In the downtown/centro area, so not right on the beach, but 20 minute walk to the beach in the harbor and easy metro or cab ride to the Copacabana/Ipanema area at a much cheaper price than staying in those areas. The room was nothing fancy, but again, it was just fine considering the amount of money we saved versus a luxury hotel.

Will never stay here again.
1. The location of the hotel is terrible. It is not near any beaches and the stores around the hotel serve strange people. 2. The condition of the hotel is terrible. The rooms were very very small (it felt like prison cells), beds were far too soft, the toilet door could not be closed properly, toilet was too small, almost all of the walls had mold growing on them, there was no room service for the 3 nights that we were staying there. 3. The price of the hotel was costly for the things that we got.

Solid option
The hotel is centrally located just off the downtown area, short walk to the metro and convenient for taxis to/from the airport, the beach, other neighborhoods and tourist attractions, etc. It was definitely not luxurious but got the job done and was definitely one of the cheapest options we could find during the world cup (less than $200 a night versus like $700 for hotels in Copacabana).

Poor1.0 / 5
Poor conditions
Most of the staff was very attentive, friendly and helpful. Room conditions were the worst I have ever stayed in. There was actually a mushroom growing out of the corner in the bathroom because of the humidity. Old mattresses and a dirty bathroom stall that I took a shower with sandals being scared to step in there. Musky smell in the hallways. I am sure there was mold because my allergies sure were acting up. Location is sort of central. Lots of homeless living in the immediate streets.
