Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The staff was the best part of staying at Yoo2. We even got a free upgrade (the room was still very tiny but it was a nice gesture). Everyone was so friendly and accommodating. The only problem I had was that bc I went Rio during the winter months, it was pretty chilly and the heat did not work in my room.

Estadia aconchegante
Além de toda qualidade das instalações as pessoas que nos atenderam foram muito gentis e prestativas. O quarto era incrível, com uma vista acolhedora, mesmo sendo da cidade, e o bar no rooftop e os drinks eram maravilhosos. Eu e minha noiva nos sentimos muito bem recebidas.

Priceless view
I had been to Rio a few times before and after following Yoo2Rio on Insta I knew I had to stay there. I booked the Corvcovado room that has a view of Corcovado and Christ the Redeemer and I was speechless when I walked in. The room was amazing. I literally wanted to stay there indefinitely. Likewise everyone at checkin was amazing and very friendly and even assisted with a last minute request I had to send a surprise bouquet of roses to the room, which were the most beautiful roses I’ve ever seen in my life... and I’ve seen a tooooon of roses. Had to be top stays in my lifetime of countless international destinations.
