The Best Hotel in Rio, isn't in Rio
Posted Jan 9, 2016 on Hotels
I'll write this review how I told it to my mother, I don't think there's many hotels in the world with a better view than this, the balcony faces the sugarloaf and Christ the redeemer, brilliant at all times of the day. The service was very good, most spoke English and the ones that didn't were still very polite and helpful. Breakfast was good, food was good by the pool, spa isn't really a spa so don't get too excited by that. The only thing that I would say is that if you stay here you need a hire car, this is Niteroi not Rio, if you want to see the sites then you'll need to cross the sea, by bridge or by boat. The boat service didn't seem organised so we used the car a lot, parking in Rio is difficult so even that isn't a good idea but it's a better idea than the boat. Really though this hotel is lovely, there's a shopping centre nearby for a bit of Americanisation, and a lovely long costal walk right outside the hotel, looks a bit dodgy in areas but the people all seemed really nice :) I'd recommend this place.
