    Good

    To be honest with you. The Gallant hotel is not a hotel is a motel. Here in brazil a motel is a place where active young or not so young couples go for a couple of hours to do their business. As a matter of fact the hotel rates of up to 3 hours, up to 6 hours and so on tells you all. However you get a discount if you decide to stay 24 hours. As a Motel (or sex house) works perfectly well. They serve your food in your room which has a separate room where the waiter can deliver your breakfast and dinner without interfering if a couple is in the middle of somethig. The half board is basically on dish only for lunch or dinner, without any starter or dessert or even a glass of water. I travelled on my own and eating in/having food delivered to my room it felt like being on a prison. The other thing was the porno tv channels showing what you would expect. This motel shouldnt be listed for single travellers as this is clearly a place for lovers and the rooms are designed for that purpose, even a gigantic mirrow in front of the double bed and plastic matter and pillow protectors in case of any spill. Dont offer this 'hotel' as people like me were misled. The location is good and the rate not bad but if I knew what to expect I would definetely have spent more money and go to a hote. I hope you take this comments seriously because you might have a family and their kids going to the wrong place. Thanks

    Good breakfast and lunch included and delivered via room service. The suite was comfortable, had big shower and sauna. The toilet flushed everything (big deal in Brazil). Most of staff was friendly.Gallant is within 5 minutes of Estacio metro station, 15 minutes to the main beaches.

    The location was too urban: not a typical Rio tourists expect.The staff didn't speak English nor did they provide typical services such as tours, maps etc. Just keep in mind that Gallant is an upscale love hotel with nice rooms. I'd say that 95% of people don't come here for maps and tours (but rooms and sheets are cleaned/changed very quickly and regulary, no worries). However I doubt that one be able to get a room this nice in Ipanema or Copacobana for this money.

    The breakfast was ok

    I didn't like anything about this hotel. The service was horrible! We couldn't get any help in the reception because they didn't know a word of english!! Not one word! The lightening on the rooms was poor. And it was soooo noisy. We could hear the traffic running all night. The bed was the worst bed I've ever slept on. Very hard! We were supposed to stay here for 5 days, but after one we had enough. Check-out took us an hour since noone spoke english. I'm never going back there.

    The only plus was the shower.

    The outside noise was absolutley terrible. The door to the outside balcony (looking onto elavated road) was not even air tight, with a big gap all around. The outside rooms require soundproofing.In summary, the room/s on the outside should be sold at half the price stated.

    Gallant hotel is awful.The hotel was hard to find, and a lot of taxi drivers had never heard of the place. The bed was awful and uncomfortable after a long day walking in rio, The pillow was hard. It was the worst place to stay at. The shower was inconvient because the it was all glass and the other person had to leave the room for you to take a shower. Gallant is not a great place to stay, I would not recommend it to anyone

    Very good

    The Hotel proved to be real value for money , it was a 5 minute walk to Estacio Metro station meaning it was quick to get almost anywhere in the city,the hotel staff were good , in particular the maids and Garcon's I would say without hesitation i would return there if staying in Rio again

    Not one member of staff spoke English , room service wasnt very good and mini bar prices were extortionate
