Noisy HotelPosted Mar 31, 2014
Since it is right in front of Av. das Americas, traffic noise can be particularly loud during the day and eventually by night. Location is OK to get to Barra sites but driving towards Copacabana and Downtown can take about 1.5 hours.

Not nearly as nice as the pictures suggestPosted Dec 10, 2013
Pros: The staff were very friendly and helpful.
Cons: General maintenance of the building and rooms.
Both the Expedia website and the Promenade website present the picture of a high end, first class hotel. Unfortunately, the Promenade Barra First was a bit of a disappointment. Primarily, the building and the rooms just haven't been maintained all that well. It's fine as generic business hotels go - definitely not a "dive" by any means. You just need to go in with the right expectations.

Great but overpricedPosted Nov 3, 2013 on Hotels.com
Good hotel. On the specific date I was there, only one elevator was working which made waiting times long. Great location, room was great!!! Great gym!!! However, since it is in Rio, it was way overpriced like everything else in this violent city.

comfortable hotel if you are there for shoppingPosted Oct 13, 2013
Pros: I will say the hotel was fair priced for such good facility like the lazy river pool. The breakfast and cleanliness were of high standard.
Cons: desk staff helpfulness was often inaccurate, but the whole shopping centre is being built so it is very chaotic and quite hard going at times.
Location: high-end shopping and expensive restaurants
comfy hotel clean good air-con nice wood features, not fussy clean some English TV stations, very good breakfast, super fruit selection, needed more meat and cheese and boiled eggs, but otherwise good where the staff were more friendly and helpful in general. the lazy river pool is a plus, especially for kids and a big gym. minuses, miles from anywhere, complicated to get to by bus long journey into town on any day. The hotel is on a very busy noisy road you have to be tough resisting noise here! After 3 days I learnt my way and found paradise.
