Amazing location with great amenities and one of the best panoramic views of Rio. Don’t be put off by it being the airport hotel - it’s my second stay and would go back in a heartbeat. Breakfast and dinner is great and the staff/hotel has effective cover measures.

I had two different experiences while checking in, with two different staff members. One was great, excellent at all levels. The other one was a nightmare with the free gift of disdain and some attitude. He really did not care at all. No compassion within that soul. I have no words to describe how professional and ethical Alex has been. His etiquette and politeness was second to none. He has been a white glove from the start to the end. Very polite and well mannered and efficient. He deserves a golden key. On my check out, two nice and polite ladies were also very friendly with nice warming smiles. On the contrary, I am really confused about this specific unfriendly, arrogant and petulant staff member can be working at any hotel or in Hospitality as a whole. I think he might have never gotten the essence of it. A total lack of luster and caliber. Maybe a sad person with a pitiful attitude, I may say. Treated me with scorn. I should wish him luck in his endeavors, may he find happiness one day.

O café da manhã no roof top é sensacional! Dá vontade de ficar um tempão desgastando o excelente café da manhã, com muitas variedades.

View was great, complementary breakfast was okay. Staff relatively friendly and knowledgeable. Room was good, but had a mildew smell to it. I imagine at some point the building received water damage which is still partially under repair as of this posting.
