My new favourite hotel in Rio

Reviewed 15 november, 2021

So this is my 3rd trip to Rio and the 1st time I stayed here. Why does no one talk about this hotel? The only negative was I could only stay 2 nights! I stayed in the old part of the hotel in a preserved apartment, which are the rooms that surround the pool. Rooms are great, nice bathroom, pool area beautiful and very relaxing. The breakfast is not like Las Vegas but we're not paying Las Vegas prices! But it had a good selection. The area is like most of Rio.....don't be stupid and don't wander around at night when Uber is so cheap. I will definitely be back.

An Oasis In Lapa- Great Value and the only one like it in the area

Reviewed 13 february, 2021

We live near Rio, if we are going out for a night in Rio or taking Friends out this is where we stay! We book two rooms, One for us one for the nanny and children ! Spend the day by the beautiful pool, then walk the 5 minutes to the centre of Lapa in the evening! Its a fairly "adult" hotel, but its suits us because of the location and the babies love the pool ! I would recommend staying here one or two nights to experience the nightlife, Spanish steps and the local vibe ! Breakfast is good but the "oasis" factor is the big deal ! Downsides, checkin can be slow, but they promise me they are working on that, and for the price which is an absolute bargain most of the time makes this a no brainer ! The rooms by the pool are perfect and worth the little extra, the staff are great! I stay here once a month and cant recommend it highly enough ! Of course you get what you pay for, there is no parking, and it can get busy, but as someone who stays in hotels a lot, I recommend this as literally an oasis in the centre of the party district ! And its great value for money !

Oasis in Lapa. Home Away from Home - but Better!

Reviewed 25 december, 2020

We've had the most relaxing and luxurious 2 1/2-week stay at the beautiful Vila Gale in Lapa. Everything met our expectations. From the spacious room, with a good mattress and a great shower to the beautiful outdoor environment (including the biggest, cleanest & warmest pool we've swum in in Rio), impeccable cleanliness throughout the hotel and the delicious breakfast buffet, to the gracious service by all hotel attendants - what a great team you are!!! Among those, were Mariana, Glaucio and Favio.Nothing was too much for them, and they bent over backwards to make our stay enjoyable. Thank you, everyone! We will spread the word and can't wait to return!!

Amazing pool area

Reviewed 21 march, 2020

This was my second stay at this lovely classic hotel. This time I booked a room in the old part of the hotel. It’s was spacious with lovely views of the pool area. I would suggest you book an upstairs room as you have more privacy and can leave your windows open. The WiFi was super fast and the room was cleaned really well each day. The main reason for staying again at this hotel is to spend time relaxing at the beautiful pool area. There were over 50 loungers with cushions and a great pool bar. Pool towels are available. The breakfast is really good, with a chef making eggs to your choice. My only complaints would be the extra charges they tried to charge me for tips. When I refused they told me it was optional. I suggest the hotel stop this policy as it causes unhappy guests. I have never seen the large bar open this after 2 stays at the hotel. I would return to this hidden gem as it has old world charms.
