There was one item that did not satisfy me: in the Venere site it was written that the garage was included, but during check-in, even showing the printed page of the reservation displaying that gara was included in the price, they disclaimed that this was not correct. I used this parameter to decide upon the hotel...

Hi- As far as compared to other hotels in the area it was nice, but the street noise into the room (even on 8th floor) was very loud. Maybe double paned windows would help? The staff was fantastic, very friendly and the housekeeping was excellent. I think the concept of the hotel is great (i.e. the design concept) but the implementation is a little run down and shabby....maybe updating the rooms (paint, etc.) the restaurant, & gym would improve the hotel. I would possibly return, if not, only due to wanting to visit another area in Rio, not due to anything the hotel is lacking. Thanks for the email.

The hotel was too expensive for what it offered. The rooms were plain and simple and were missing the DESIGN element completely. If priced at around 80-90 USD, I would have said it is a good deal.
