Well situaded, close to "arco da lapa" and 5 min walk to the center (metro station : Cinelandia). In front of the hotel, big grocery store, very useful. Small swiming pool on the top with sauna and sun deck ; apreciate after long walk in town.

Given we didn’t want to feel unsafe in the notoriously dangerous downtown we just had to stump up the cash and we settled on a reasonable 3.5/4 star business hotel called Windsor Martinique.
