"Could get better"
Golden Tulip Leme it´s an hotel that needs a little more care. Average room, old closets, nice bed and pillows, very clean. Not being able to take a hot shower is very unpleasent. The room I stayed at the 18th floor had a great view... to the Favela. Ask for front rooms. They need to take care of the closets and mostly the showers, asap. Breakfast was good, and so was the service. Overall, it was almost ok.
The wi-fi was tricky. I couldn't access the secured connection from my phone and couldn't access some of the sites I tried to go into due to lack of network security. Everything else was wonderful!!!!
"Nice location, great staff"
I stayed at the Leme branch for nearly a week during a conference; the price was good, the location was fine (not the beach, but very close), and the small rooftop area has spectacular reviews. Rooms an ok size, and comfortable. The clientele seemed mostly to be Brazilian families on vacation. What stood out was the service - I speak no Portugese, but the desk staff went the extra mile to help me as I had to travel around the city and beyond for work. Joao and Mauro were especially friendly and helpful.
We had a 2 night stay over in Rio mid meetings. The hotel is very comfortable and the service was excellent during our stay. The food for both breakfast and meals is varied and very good. We did find our room a wee but cramped. 2 of us were sharing a room with 2 double beds. The shower was really good (Too many hotels have terrible showers). Good air conditioning & the laundry service was superb. I never used the pool facilities but I understand that the views from the top of the building are great. First and foremost the hotel is in a great location for all the main attractions in the city. A great choice to stay.
The hotel/staff is fine. However, it is the second time that I am charged twice in my credit card for the same stay. In addition, an event with very loud sound made my last stay during the noght a real hell.
