Bad experience

Customer review rating 1.0/5

Andre Business - 30/11/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The hotel is much worst than last stays. Was given a handicapped room without previous advice: small sink with huge water pressure, small shower area with a handicapped chair using up good part of the area and a curtain that doesn’t stop the water from drowning the whole room. Breakfast with a very oldish scrambled egg and little options in general. Only one person working in the front desk and when we arrived there were around 30 people from a offshore drilling company doing checkin ate the same time. One of the elevators is broken and doesn’t allow the selection of floors 4 and 5. Took a while to discover this and every time had to wait for the second elevator in order to get to the room.

Melissa, the night host, was very accommodating. Our room was missing the sofa bed (it was near midnight) so she moved was to another room and went herself sort the sofa and bedding for us. 10 for her. The fact that she was alone in a hotel that size was a bit strange…! Also we arrived with two little kids and there was absolutely nothing to offer us in the hotel. Not even a snack machine. We would have to go to the hotel next door, not a nice thing to do with to exhausted kids. Other than that, the room was exceptionally comfortable and the breakfast amazing.

Well Located

The structure is satisfying, but the room service takes too long. Specially during the lunch/dinner time.

Good stay.

I had a good stay. Clean room, good service and near the airport.

Lack of food after 10pm

Customer review rating 2.5/5

Rodrigo M. Business - 06/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Since Rio de Janeiro is an entry-city to the state of RJ, I arrived by flight at 10pm at the airport. By the time I arrive in the Hotel it was already 10:20pm and the restaurant was already closed (closes at 10pm) and there was no 24-hour food to order inside the Hotel. This is a huge Hotel and it should have at least 24-hour service for snacks such as hamburgers, sandwiches, small foods. Ifood is an option, however, the comfort of eating a food prepared by the hotel is priceless.

Although brief, my stay at the hotel was great. The only thing I would note as an improvement point, is that the breakfast isn’t available early in the morning. I’ve had an early flight, and there wasn’t anything to eat before leaving. I’ve had to eat at the airport.

It was a 2 day stay at Rio de Janeiro, and I've enjoyed a lot. Breakfast was great and the room was very clean. I wish there was more water pressure (but I was on the last floor) and also the AC was quieter. Despite of that, it was a great stay.

Dirty hotel with no attention to customer requests

elberbiondi Business - 14/09/2021 TripAdvisor review

I am a platinum member and I requested a change of room, I was not answered. I didn't even get an answer to my request. Even though I was asked to go to my room and wait for my return. The bathroom had mold and bugs on the ceiling.

GustavoKruger Business - 02/12/2019 TripAdvisor review

Novotel SDU stay after my trip to Europe. This is a good stay after a long trip, very convenient close to SDU airport. Only that misses in this hotel is a transfer to the Airport. Is close, but it is close enough to make it difficuklt to find taxi; at the same time it is not close enough to someone who needs to walk to the VERY DANGEROUS center of Rio de Janeiro

Hi GustavoKruger! Thank you for let us know about your time at Novotel Rio de Janeiro Santos Dumont. We are glad that you have enjoyed your stay and hope see you again very soon! Kind regards,

Novotel Santos Dumont - Good cost/benefit

I have stayed here before. This is just to confirm that the hotel is still wonderful, and lived up to all my expectations. The room was spacious, with all the amenities to make your stay enjoyable. Add the bar and restaurant experience, and I was well pleased.

Expensive , nothing included, had problems with the AC as soon as I arrived to my room from a long day s work and had to be moved to another room after two employees came to try to fix the AC. Fairly dissapointed to say the least

Aline C Friends getaway - 28/09/2017 TripAdvisor review

I would have to present my credit card what I had paid months ago. Without this I couldn't stay on the hotel. Terrible process. All of services are OK. The location near the airport is the vantage to stay in this hotel.

Fast trip

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

M5992LTcarlosm Couples - 17/12/2016 TripAdvisor review

Ideal for a fast trip, because it's near the Santos Dumont airport, you can go by walk from the airport. The hotel follows the Novotel patterns, which is good. Good attendants, clean and new rooms. It's far from the Rio's touristic points, but it's possible to get taxis, buses or subway. During the night the region is not so safe, so be careful walking around late at night.

Dear Geraldo Luiz Cardoso Chaves, We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay at the Novotel Rio de Janeiro Santos Dumont. It is always a pleasure to receive positive feedback. I will share your comments with our team. I am sure that this feedback will serve as an encouragement to all of our staff as we strive to continuously improve the quality of our services. Thank you again for sharing your experience, and we hope your next visit will be as pleasant as the previous one. Sincerely, Renato Dias General Manager
