Very clean, safe hotel. Excellent breakfast buffet included every morning. Right across the street from the beach. Excellent staff and very informative. We are looking at going back to Rio and will most likely stay here again as it was the perfect spot.

The hotel is situated between Ipanema and Copacabana. Both beaches are a 5 min walk away. A metro station is also only a short walk way. The hotel is modern and very comfortable. The bar on the top floor prepares excellent drinks.

Rio Aeroporto Hotel

3.5/5 (244 reviews)

Convenient location if you having a very early flight or arriving in Rio in middle of the night. It is outdated (feels like you are back in the 80’s), but it is confortable and staff is quite friendly. It’s pricey but again, you are paying for its location. You can even take your luggage trolley ...

Stayed at this hotel for 9 nights. We were upgraded from a standard to a superior double room on check in. We didn't even ask, the check in staff just did it! The room was a good size and the double bed was so comfortable. There was no tea/coffee making facilities but we took our own kettle. A small ...

Literally one block from Ipanema, you cannot beat the location. They let you sign out chairs and towels to take to the beach free of charge. The breakfast at the adjoining restaurant is really good: fresh fruits, granola with all the toppings, and you can order hot food off the menu such as eggs ...

Incredibly kind service from the staff. Exceptionally helpful. My bags were lost by airline. Desk men did everything they could to assist me and familiarize me wth neighborhood.

I was concerned as I read some mixed reviews about noise, long wait at check-in and rough neighborhood. Booked with the benefit of the doubt and I don't regret it. One of my best short stays. Slept well, hardly any real noise issues (and I am very sensitive to that). Keep in mind, this was in a low ...
