New building, great views from the terrace top floor, nice swimming pool, small but nice plus a gym with a great view
Stayed three nights at the Selina after Carnival. The hotel and staff were excellent. The hotel is situated in a central location. Great value for the price. Would recommend.
Good hotel close to many restaurants in Lapa, room in historical area of the hotel.
The room was spacious and clean. Breakfast was yummy and plentiful. Service was very good. As for the neighbourhood, some people might find it a bit sketchy; I personally felt completely fine given the fact that Rio isn't the safest place to begin with. Great value for the price!
Good location and free parking. Breakfast ok! Bathroom ok. Bedrooms are small but ok. Elevators and refrigerators are to old and dirty! Staffs are very polite!
