We stayed here for one night over carnaval and were able to walk to and from the sambadrome (and felt safe)
The staff were fantastic, so lovely, friendly and welcoming, it was like going to stay with family!!
The building itself is quite unusual as it's an old colonial building and you enter via a tunnel and old school elevator.
The rooms were clean and tidy and had been decorated well, but obviously as this is an old building, we were able to hear people in the next room very clearly and also people walking about in the room above us. However, the bed was really comfortable and a great shower.
We ordered room service, which I wouldn't recommend. We had panninis and they were really dry and resembled the food we had got on the plane. Breakfast wasn't included in the rate and based on the food we had, we didn't think it was worth it.
The pool was clean and the garden area was lovely. And the seating areas in the reception were comfortable.
I would recommend this place, but maybe not the best for light sleepers
