Noisiest hotel I have ever been to. You get what you pay for. Not much. Either the guests in other rooms where yelling at night ir the traffic outside wouldn’t give you any rest Very shady neighborhood with lots of homeless people and people smoking weed at any corner. Breakfast was acceptable. Never again.

Dear Mr. Montecarlo, We appreciate to receive your comments regarding your stay at Arosa Rio Hotel. We are sorry that this situation happened while you'd been in our hotel. Silence is a most important topic in our hotel, and we ask all our guest no to make noise that would disturb others. Sometimes we ever know that in a concrete room is disturbing. So we suggest our guest to inform us, so we can directly communicate and be sure silence returns back again.. Please allow me to express our sincerest apologies. Thank you again for sharing your experience and we hope you give us another chance to show our real service in the future. Kind Regards, Ronnie Arosa

second and last time in this one. It was a cheap offer but nothing to repeat. very,very dirty and seedy area of rio. homeless people and drug addicts on the streets, dangerous at night in my opinion. the room was spacious and clean, the walls paper thin!! we couldn’t sleep for those 2 days we spent in the hotel. They renovated the hotel, new windows, nice impression. the sad thing was that although traffic was not noisy anymore the other guests were. a pity. if you are used to hostals you will love it, if you want to enjoy quiet and quality moments ...run as fast as possible. By the way there is no beach nearby and copacabana is faaaar away. Rio is a nice place, this hotel is to be avoided. Would be a 3 stars with thick walls ,like this it is bearable only if you want to party and are on a budget. Keep clear if you travel with kids. Area is really not recommendable

Dear Mr. DrLuxury, We regret to hear that your experience at Arosa Rio Hotel was not up to your expectations. . We are sorry that this situation happened while you'd been in our hotel. We are very sorry for this fact, but we were not informed about this event. I will suggest next time to comunicate the frontdesk, so somebody from the staff could look after and solve this situation. It's an easy issue to solve. We are really surprised when we hear what you mention about our neighborhood. As your wrote in your comments, it was your second time in our hotel, and nothing at all changed between your stays. It's strange to read that a neighborhood that you had like, so you decided to return, can change in so deeply. It would be our great pleasure to welcome you back to Arosa Rio Hotel in the future when we hope to have the opportunity to restore your faith in us. Kind regards, Ronnie Arosa

I stayed at Arosa for 5 nights and found myself enjoying the stay. The hotel is located in Centro/Lapa. There are many (and cheap) restaurants around so eating will not certainly be a problem. Main Lapa hotspots such as the Cathedral, the Arches and the famous stairs as well as the famous and buzzing nightlife are a bit far but honestly you should always get a cab when in Rio, they’re so cheap so that even if you’re on a budget, you’ll be able to afford it. You’ll definitely a cab to ride to the main famous beaches (about 20 mins), since the hotel is in the city centre. Breakfast was ok with a selection of both continental and English items. Room was spacious and bed comfortable, well-equipped with minibar, air conditioning, safe. The only downsides were the WiFi, this seemed to be working on and off. And last, I am sorry to say that but check-in is the first impression you get from a hotel and was a bit disappointing. Upon my arrival, the lady at the front desk completely ignored me, she looked stressed and in a strop, so busy that I had to be the one to start the conversation and say HI, otherwise she’d have carried on with the stuff. It was almost like she did not want to be there. The other members were super nice, a short lady who speaks very good English and the guy ( I think his name is Carlos), they have helped me out through the entire stay.

Hotel is not in the best area of Rio. There are vacant buildings and homeless people sleeping doors away. The pool is an 3 person Jacuzzi the air conditioner was broke in the lobby on the day my party arrived. We didn't feel comfortable to stay and of course these was nonrefundable rooms. Complete waste of money, management was uncooperative in acknowledging any deception to their ad. Find an better deal by booking directly with a hotel you trust like the Hilton, I did. Expedia and Trip Advisor, should not be recommending this hotel on their sites to the millions of travelers who trust the service they provide.

Dear Mrs Sonia, Our hotel is located at central Rio in a neighborhood called Lapa, that includes many points of interest as Arcos da Lapa, Escadaria Selaron, Metropolitan Cathedral (and many others) and it's globally famous for their samba houses and bars. We are very disappointed for your review and in our opinion is not quite fair at all. When you arrived, you just ask us for sea view rooms. The sea is about 2 km from the hotel. We understand that you did want to stay in front of the beach, but it was not our fault that you had booked this hotel. The pool is exactly the same pool you'd seen in our photos as we explained here at the hotel. The location is also informed when you book our hotel. When you booked our hotel, you had all the informations and photos to decide wether to come to our hotel or not. You get a great promotion in our hotel, and the conditions were clearly exposed. As you can see in many sites, we have good ranking and reviews in the majority of travel site. I hope you had a great experience in Rio. Sincerely, Ronnie Arosa

Arrived after a 20-30 min taxi ride from the airport. Staff at the front desk spoke English and were super friendly and helpful. Since I arrived early they allowed me to hold onto my luggage whilst my room was being prepared. The room was big and spacious just the way I like it. The bed was soft but not too soft, found myself getting some really good recovery sleep from the flight. I decided to try out the gym and was informed that there was another gym next door with more equipment which I could also use. The hotel gym however is not the best but has the basic stuff like air con, light weights and a multi-purpose machine.Theres also a little pool you can go in afterwards.The breakfast was great! Alot of variety. I also had lunch in the restaurante and food was good then aswell and not too expensive. I throughly enjoyed my time there.
