"Oasis in a big city "
When the taxi driver dropped us outside of the hotel which had a small entrance on what looked a fairly run down area of Rio I thought omg. However, not only was the area fine and very friendly, the hotel was a beautiful oasis in the middle of a big city. If your wondering where to stay in Rio, include Vila Gale in your research list. Very nice and very reasonably priced
"nice architecture in common areas, depressing restaurante and rooms!"
Spent one night for work, beautiful pool interesting entrance and nice common areas, very intersting architecture in a decadent but vibrant neighborhood,but bad illumination and subpar decoration and function in both room and bathroom. went for breakfast early to find no staff there, arrived 10 minutes after opening time!!
"Amazing hotel with wonderful staff"
Our stay for 10 days during the Olympics was fabulous. The facilities are great with a nice pool and a lovely lifeguard as well as a spa (though jacuzzi not always warm) and a great little gym with free water which we topped up from regularly! The breakfasts were great - extensive and with lovely freshly made omelettes and the staff were very attentive in the restaurant. Our room was super and we were very pleased with the cleanliness and facilities. The thing that made our stay really great was the staff. we were there with our daughter who is 10 years old and the staff were wonderful with her. From the reception team ( eg Marco and Mariana) to the bellboys (Leandro and Marconi) they were all super and made us all feel at home. The hotel is in Lapa which is known to be a party district which made us cautious at first but streets didn't feel dangerous. There were always security on the main door too and taxis came by regularly if you wanted to get about that way. Otherwise the metro was a team minute walk. The hotel is close to the tourist attractions of the Lapa Acros(arches) with its trolley bus and the tiled Escalion (steps). All in all we were very pleased and wou,d certainly stay there again if we're were to return to Brazil!
"A different Rio"
A wonderful hotel in a different area of Rio tourists are used to. However it is great with lots of marvelous restaurants and bars right outside the door. Very confortable, family and children friendly.
"Great hotel experience"
Very nice hotel located in Lapa district with spacious rooms and great facilities including a beautiful pool, fitness room and spa (hammam and jaccuzzi). Food is plentiful and tasty: the breakfast buffet has a wide range of food options from eggs (You can even ask for your own tailormade omelet), cured meats, fresh fruit, bread & pastries, cake, yogurt (plain or with fruit), granola, mixed nuts, cereal, juice, etc. Truly wonderful! The lunch buffet is also really nice and has a wide range of warm and cold dishes for only 55 reals (+10% service). Staff was friendly and helpful. Only downside is the location. Lapa is very quiet during the day and quite sinister in some allies. The atmosphere is more lively at night when bars and restaurants are open and filled with crowds.
