Great hotel at a great price!
I stayed here for 4 nights with my husband and 3 young children. Having stayed in Rio several times before, near Copacabana, I really enjoyed staying somewhere that felt more like proper Rio surrounded by locals rather than loads of tourists. We got ubers most places so it provided a good base but the tram to Santa Teresa was a short walk away. Eating out in the evening very locally felt slightly limited with children. Though there's a great family restaurant one block diagonally opposite.
The pool was a great place to hang out after a day seeing the sights, the beds were comfy, the room with clean, the balcony was spacious and the breakfast was fabulous. Polite, helpful staff, though with limited English. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone, families, couples or friends.

Great value for money!
We stayed here for the week of carnival! In my opinion it was a great location to be able to walk to most of the major bloco parties and be amongst the crazy atmosphere. The staff were lovely and very helpful - 24 hour service made you feel safe no matter what time you got in, rooms were small but clean, breakfast was simple but had variety most mornings. We didn’t need anything fancy as we spent most of our time out enjoying the events of carnival so it was perfect for us.

A good base for exploring
Rooms small and basic, with a private shower room. Breakfast was ok, nothing amazing, but juices and fruit were good. A digital safe was provided without charge for keeping valuables safe. Staff speak limited English, therefore if problems arise be prepared to use google translate if you don't speak Portuguese. Staff tried hard to please despite the language barrier. Our hair drier did not work. The staff offered to move us to another room to rectify this but we decided to manage without. The area of lapa itself is grubby and grey looking. A huge level of poverty very apparent in the immediate vicinity. Numerous homeless people sleeping rough around the streets. None gave us any cause for concern, although I probably wouldn't have ventured too far from the hotel in the evening alone. There is a huge supermarket just across the road, as well as many other small shops. The area is great for clubs and bars. There are many to choose from. Some expect passport details before granting entry. Within the hotel we felt very safe. The hotel also allowed us to check out late, as we weren't flying home until the evening. If you are looking for a high end tourist hotel this would not be the place for you. However, if like us you wanted to experience 'real brazil' this would be a good option. Taxis are always available to hail on the street. It never took us more than a minute to find one and prices were reasonable (necessary if you are wanting to visit copacobana and other attractions). Buses were also frequent from outside the hotel, but we did not use them.

I stayed here for three weeks while working on the Paralympics.
The hotel is on a busy but not very touristy street in Lapa, convenient for Santa Teresa and Lapa's bars and restaurants although the immediate surroundings are more local than touristy. That said, it never felt unsafe. It's about 20 minutes' walk to Cinelandia/Carioca/Central metro/train stations, so not especially close. Buses down Rua Richuelo are constant and frequent to lots of places.
My room was comfortable enough with good, quiet air conditioning and a good bathroom. Breakfast was good, standard Brazilian choices. I didn't try the restaurant or room service or use the pool, but did use the gym - couple of treadmills, one normal bike, one recumbent bike, one cross trainer, all in decent condition but not new. Couldn't work out how to use the air con in the gym. Wifi was good.
Staff were friendly enough but most didn't go out of their way to be especially helpful. A low point was the day I needed an early breakfast and discovered the waiter hadn't turned up so there was none. My cleaner, however, kindly brought me extra hangers without being asked to hang clothes I'd washed up to dry on.
