We booked 3 nights in this guesthouse during Carnivale and it was horrible. If we could give it zero stars we would. We left our hotel booking late so it was almost one of the last places left with vacancy. I know beggers couldn't be choosers, but we still didn't expect it to be so bad. We were put into Room 2F - do not stay there!!!!! The room is literally the size of a double bed. I'm not exaggerating - take a look at the photos. Three walls of the room touched the edge of the bed so we couldn't even put our legs down. The other wall left a 1m gap so small that the door couldn't open properly and with 2 suitcase wedged in we had no place to stand. It was so ludicrous it was actually funny. On top of that: - There was no hot water in the shared bathroom - The hotel wi-fi didn't work, even in the reception area - The hotel staff were not rude but anything but helpful. We couldn't even get a map from them. - The rooms were up stairs so narrow we could hardly fit our bags up. The only thing going for the place was its location as it was only one block back from Copacobana beach. But even that still didn't make staying there worthwhile. We hated Rio Guesthouse so much that we stayed out all day and night just to avoid being there. And that was at least the silver lining, because Rio itself is amazing and we got to see so much.
