Rooms at the Royal regency Palace Hotel are simple yet elegant. With a prime downtown location, near various modes of public transportation, the hotel is the perfect home base for families hoping to see all Rio has to offer. Authentic Brazilian restaurants surround the hotel, as well as plenty of international eateries. Families can climb aboard a train that will take them on a tour of the world’s largest urban rainforest. The train also stops at the famed Christ the Redeemer art deco statue. Adventurous guests can book a waterfall rappelling excursion, and kids will love seeing the playful marmoset monkeys.

Lovely hotel, very clean, not very close to the beach or the city centre but the metro station is 2 minutes away, 10-15 mins by metro to the beach.
Nice breakfast, the staff are very friendly and helpful as well. Plenty of restaurants and supermarkets within 5 minutes and there is a cinema near by as well.
I recommend it.
Arrived after a long flight from UK
We were given our room and to be honest it was a little disappointing
We said we wanted a large room big enough for 3 ( just to explain size of room required)
The room was very average with a double and a single bed. ( obviously the language barrier had got in the way of what was required)
View from the tiny balcony looked like we were in the bronx. No chairs etc on the said tiny balcony.
Bathroom was very basic and the towels were which were meant to be white were more like a light grey.
In the room was a small but ok fridge
Water was replenished each day......
At No Point was there any indication that at the end of the week would we be charged for the water( no info leaflets, no indication from booking in)
TV on the wall has wires hanging within the weird frame
Breakfast was fine, a good choice of fruit and savoury’s
Minus point was that the lights over the cooked food were just that “lights” no heat to keep the food warm so everything was Luke warm or cold.
The thing that spoilt the holiday was that we returned much earlier that usual from being out for a meal to find our door open!!
We hurried in the room to find a young housekeeper in the room. When I asked what she was doing at 8.30pm ( our room had been fully cleaned 11am that morning.
She didn’t speak English and just left.
I went to reception and they could not explain why the maid was in our room....
This unnerved me and I didn’t not feel comfortable leaving the room without double checking the safe etc
I would not go back again mainly due to this as no one could explain this and there was NO REASON FOR ANYONE TO BE IN MY ROOM.
