Hotel staff from front desk to restaurant should be A LOT more friendly.

Customer review rating 2.0/5

Joilson S. Business - 16/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Room service delivered wrong sandwich. Front desk lady, even if you hands on the credit card asks you to immediately pay for your stay… no welcome or other word of arrival.

Dirty hotel with no attention to customer requests

TripAdvisor rating 1.0/5

elberbiondi Business - 14/09/2021 TripAdvisor review

I am a platinum member and I requested a change of room, I was not answered. I didn't even get an answer to my request. Even though I was asked to go to my room and wait for my return. The bathroom had mold and bugs on the ceiling.

The hotel and front desk staff very good, the resturant did not have a lot of items that were on the menu including some wines and desserts and the dinner staff poorly trained.

I stayed many time at the Novotel in Mechelen and the resturant staff was much more professional.

Good stay.

Questionable Quality

James J. Families - 07/08/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Check-in/Check-out was done professionaly. 2 rooms were reserved. Housekeeping was a disaster (2 days out of 4 days no service was performed). In 1 of the rooms the housekeeper spilled trash from the bathroom wastebasket, cleaned up without gloves and then proceeded to make the bed without washing her hands. My wife asked to speak with a supervisor. New linen was given to my wife and they expected her to put the new linen on the bed. The linen had blood stains on it and was not used. The morning breakfast buffer was late opening 3 out of 4 days. The 4th day there were no eggs, sausage or vegetables. I asked about these missing items and was told it would be available soon. After waiting for 30 minutes and having only some frui my wife, daughter and I proceeded to leave and were told we must pay price for 3 breakfasts I paid the bill and we left the buffet. We proceeded to pack our luggage and paid our bill in full. Would we stay there again? (NEVER). Would I recommend this hotel (NEVER).

In the city center of Rio and well located near the airport.

I do not have much to say. I would like to call attention to the reception team. However, once I request a recomendation for having diner out of the hotel, the attendent said to enjoy the hotel restaurante, and I explain, that I would like to have something different, but unfortunatelly the person was not able to provide me any sugestion.

Noisy neighbours and cold eggs for breakfast

Customer review rating 2.5/5

Guilherme Couples - 15/07/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Lousy. I went to the hotel looking for a quiet night from noisy neighbours at home only to be awakened by noisy guests at around 2.30. My wife almost cried. The eggs and bacon at breakfast were cold.

GustavoKruger Business - 02/12/2019 TripAdvisor review

Novotel SDU stay after my trip to Europe. This is a good stay after a long trip, very convenient close to SDU airport. Only that misses in this hotel is a transfer to the Airport. Is close, but it is close enough to make it difficuklt to find taxi; at the same time it is not close enough to someone who needs to walk to the VERY DANGEROUS center of Rio de Janeiro

Hi GustavoKruger! Thank you for let us know about your time at Novotel Rio de Janeiro Santos Dumont. We are glad that you have enjoyed your stay and hope see you again very soon! Kind regards,

Novotel Santos Dumont - Good cost/benefit

Nice and conveniente stay. clean, comfortable, well p´laced close to SDU airport I intend to stay there every time when I have business trips to Rio de Janeiro. Cost is a little expénsive, and accor could adjust to more fair tariffs
