                    Honest, delivers what it promises. Price of hotels in Rio are absurd and skyrocket (given Olympic Games and World Cup coming soon), so even bad hotels have high prices. Imperial is also very expensive when you compare with other cities hotels, but at least the room is ok (not luxurious, but clean) and bathroom is also reasonable. My mattress (colchão) was a little wear (a little bent) but I had a good night of sleep anyway. Not a bad hotel.

                    as I said, all hotels in Rio are very expensive... Imperial hotel rated > 280 reais, but in other cities this same hotel level would be below 180 reals... I don´t have any complaint against Imperial Hotel itself, but I think that all hotels in Rio are a dirty mafia, that charges high prices for what they offer.

                    Thought I'd write a in depth review as there's not many views in English about Rio hotels - For location, it's not bad, if you're lazy, you can walk to Flamengo beach in 10 mins. The area itself is between the Centro and beach areas, so there's not much happening in the area, a few restaurants (supermarkets are within two mins walk). It's also next to Cetate metro station, which is handy as I would not reccommend using buses in Rio as the traffic is really bad. The metro system is small and the only tourist places you can get to on it are the Centro (museums and business district) and copacabana/ipanema beaches. Sugar loaf mountain and Christ The Redeemer you need to either get taxis or take the bus to reach. From Galileo airport I paid $12 (Reais) which is about £4 to get to the hotel (be careful cause taxis and probably anybody else charging you for anything will try and get the most out of you - haggle or it becomes expensive!) The hotel itself is OK. Rio is very expensive for hotels and the price will only go up with the world cup and olympics round the corner. The staff are very friendly and speak good enough English to get by. They do a good breakfast in the morning of pastries, cake, fruit, hot food (not full english!) and beverages. I had a standard room which was basic - double bed, bathroom, fridge and a cupboard, size was OK and they serviced the room every day. Bring your own towels cause they don't like you using theres at the beach! The hotel also has an internet room, swimming pool, small gym and sauna, all of which were clean. Safety wise I felt fine, just remember that foreigners stick out like a sore thumb so don't go looking flashy with jewellry hanging out. Nothing happened to me but you do get the sense that one wrong turn or bad luck and you can get yourself in trouble. The city is improving and there's a lot of police about, so don't go by the opinion you're going to get mugged!

                    Thought I'd write a in depth review as there's not many views in English about Rio hotels - For location, it's not bad, if you're lazy, you can walk to Flamengo beach in 10 mins. The area itself is between the Centro and beach areas, so there's not much happening in the area, a few restaurants (supermarkets are within two mins walk). It's also next to Cetate metro station, which is handy as I would not reccommend using buses in Rio as the traffic is really bad. The metro system is small and the only tourist places you can get to on it are the Centro (museums and business district) and copacabana/ipanema beaches. Sugar loaf mountain and Christ The Redeemer you need to either get taxis or take the bus to reach. From Galileo airport I paid $12 (Reais) which is about £4 to get to the hotel (be careful cause taxis and probably anybody else charging you for anything will try and get the most out of you - haggle or it becomes expensive!) The hotel itself is OK. Rio is very expensive for hotels and the price will only go up with the world cup and olympics round the corner. The staff are very friendly and speak good enough English to get by. They do a good breakfast in the morning of pastries, cake, fruit, hot food (not full english!) and beverages. I had a standard room which was basic - double bed, bathroom, fridge and a cupboard, size was OK and they serviced the room every day. Bring your own towels cause they don't like you using theres at the beach! The hotel also has an internet room, swimming pool, small gym and sauna, all of which were clean. Safety wise I felt fine, just remember that foreigners stick out like a sore thumb so don't go looking flashy with jewellry hanging out. Nothing happened to me but you do get the sense that one wrong turn or bad luck and you can get yourself in trouble. The city is improving and there's a lot of police about, so don't go by the opinion you're going to get mugged!
