Personal power outlets, reading lights, lockers and ceiling fans are also provided.

We have a 24h reception, so you may come and go around the clock or buy drinks and snacks.

A five minute walk down the road takes you to Lapa, famous for its legendary street parties. The nearby bus and metro stops guarantee easy and fast access to Rios picturesque beaches. Nowadays, Uber is also a very interesting option to move about the city as it has a good value for money.
