We spent four nights here and it was a great experience. The location is super central for visiting all the spots in the city (it’s very close to the Sambodromo). The facilities are beautiful, the breakfast is amazing and has a lot of options. It has a gym and a spa and the staff is so polite 🤩 100% recommended
