Novotel Rio De Janeiro Barra Da Tijuca, Rio de Janeiro
A modern hotel on the beach, close to Rio
The hotel is what I have come to expect of a Novotel. It is fairly new, with a modern design. The rooms are comfortable, but efficient. The bed is comfortable, and there is a desk suitable for writing postcards home. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Most rooms have a partial view of the ocean: if you look out the window and to the left, you can see the beach and the water. This was convenient because I could see if the surf was calm or rough before leaving the room. If you look straight out, you see a Windsor hotel about 100 meters or so next door. The hotel is right on the beach in Barra da Tijuca. It is not quite in Rio, according to the locals. Even so, it is a good location, as you can get from your room to the water in about five or ten minutes. The hotel restaurant serves a generous breakfast. You can either book with breakfast included or pay as you go. Coming from Michigan, I was most taken by the deliciously ripe fresh fruit they had every day. There are a few restaurants walking distance from the hotel. Others are a short taxi or Uber ride away. Across from the hotel are various barraca bars, where you can have a beer or a caipirinha and a bite to eat while watching the waves and enjoying the beach. The bar staff were very friendly and helpful, even though we didn't speak Portuguese and they spoke no English.

Nice hotel in a Great Barra Location
The Novotel Hotel on Av. Lucio Costa is right across the street from the beautiful Barra da Tijuca beach and conveniently located just a few minutes by taxi from the Barra commercial area including the excellent Barra Shopping Center with lots of restaurants and the new office areas around it. This area is very safe for walking and it is easy to get a taxi or bus to the Barra Shopping or the Alvorada bus terminl where you can get a bus to anywhere in the city of Rio de Janeiro. Just be aware that if you want to go downtown or to the other tourist areas such as Pao de Acucar, Corcovado, Copacabana or Ipanema, you will need to allow at least an hour for traffic. The hotel itself is new and comfortably furnished. If you have a room in the front of the hotel the view is fantastic. Be sure to check out the view from the rooftop lounge at night and have a drink while you are there. The breakfast is adequate for the hotel price but there are better buffets in the area but they will cost you a lot more. Overall I would recommend this hotel to anyone who has business in the Barra Shopping area but wants a hotel on the beach for the relaxation on business travel.

Best hotel in Rio de Janiero!
We were very impressed with the level of service we received at the Novotel Rio De Janeiro Barra Da Tijuca. The staff were extremely courteous and friendly and went out of their way to make us feel welcome. The rooms were clean and the shower was awesome. The breakfast also was very good. The only complaint we had was the 5th floor hallway (where we stayed) had a very strange odor that wasn't too pleasant, but it didn't carry into the rooms, and it was isolated to that floor - so that doesn't affect this review. The roof pool was a little dissapointing in being about 10' wide and less than 3' deep, but we didn't use it anyway due to the temperature. Room was a tad small, but this may be normal for Brazil. Otherwise this was a great hotel that offered parking and had a great beach side location with views of the ocean. In my opinion, the best hotel we could have chose in the Rio area! Would definitely stay here again.
