Located in Flamengo, a residential neighborhood dotted with Art Deco buildings, this family-friendly hotel is very popular with school groups, sports teams, and business travelers. The Flamengo Park, also known as the Aterro do Flamengo, is right around the corner. This is the largest public park in the city along the Guanabara Bay, designed by world renowned landscape designer Burle Marx.

The hotel is very easily accessible from the business center downtown and the Catete subway station is only a few steps away. The Santos Dumont Airport, used mainly for domestic flights, is a short car ride from the hotel. Even though some might find the rooms somewhat bland, the hotel manages to combine the charm and tradition of Old Rio with modern day facilities. With its low rates it’s a great alternative to the pricier hotels in Copacabana or Ipanema.
