Vibrant and modern

First of all 'WOW'. This hotel has an insane view of both pao do azucar and christ the redeemer. Our first night we were upgraded and we felt very welcome. We got a welcome drink while we waited for our room to get ready and we could enjoy rooftop view, which although small the rooftop has one of the best views. The rooms are modern and very minimal. When you enter there is a song to get your Carioca vibes going. Also I love the free amenaties. They are simple brazilian brand 'Granado' and their fragrance is to die for. I even bought some to take back home.
Breakfast is ok and staff is very friendly.
Especially Everton. He handled our every need with patience and a smile.
He made us feel welcome and we are greatfull. If you ever visit Rio, you are crazy not to spend a night or two in this hotel. It's worth it!

PS food in hotel takes long to prepare and is overpriced. So wont recommend ordering food. The cocktails on the other hand are very tasty.

Great for young travelers

This hotel is really in a great location! It's by a beach that isn't great for lounging/swimming, but you get a great view of the water and Sugar Loaf from the rooftop bar. You can also see Christ the Redeemer from the other side of the rooftop. The pictures don't really do it justice, it's a great place to rest, relax, and have a fresh cocktail. The rooms were fine and room service was great. We had an issue with our shower that got resolved within an hour of calling the front desk. Some of the other reviews make valid points and you can definitely find nicer hotels in Rio, but if you're young or working on a tighter budget, Yoo2 is a really good option.

The staff is so friendly and helpful! Everton, Deborah, Marcus, Gabriel, Vitor--they were super kind every time we saw them and they gave us great advice about everything we wanted to do.

We had breakfast at the hotel each morning to save money, and it was good. Fresh juices and fruits, breads to toast, eggs and various meats. Better than free breakfast that I've seen at other hotels. The rooftop bar and restaurant have good menus, but as is to be expected, they are a little expensive. Still tasty!

Botafogo is a great neighborhood to stay in. We felt safe walking around the neighborhood, though we obviously were extra cautious at night. There's a lot going on in the neighborhood, including many markets and restaurants about a 10 minute walk from the hotel. We were still able to easily take the train or a cheap uber to places like Copacabana, Lapa, and Urca to enjoy different parts of Rio. Botafogo doesn't feel as touristy which also helped with prices at local shops and restaurants.

I would definitely recommend staying here!

This is a very special place! Comfy and modern, wonderful service and a delicious breakfast for all tastes. An excellent choice with a beautiful view of the sugar loaf “Pão de Açúcar”. For business or fun, as a couple, with family or by yourself make sure you come here.

Not as boutique or trendy as they would like you to think

I have booked for 5 nights, it is quite expensive for Rio, but I wanted a really comfortable hotel, that could be a base for work and play.

The room, is small and comfortable, but not as clean as it should be for the level of hotel, the Wifi is quite sketchy, it takes a while to join and drops out.

Breakfast is good, a reasonable selection of hot and cold food.

Roof top bar and space- pool is quite dirty and has a selection of dead insects floating on it, the food is basic and very very expensive. In the evenings they play really loud and awful music, that makes it impossible to enjoy the view which is lovely.

Throughout the day it is quite impossible to relax on the rooftop because of the excessive building noice, and I mean excessive as I write this there is at least 5 pneumatic dills in earshot, which makes it impossible to work in or relax.

Overall the hotel is ok- but it is far too expensive. The cleanliness is a problem there was chewing stuck all over the lift on my first night, and the rooftop which should be the highlight is blighted by noise. I wouldn't stay here again. And I am looking forward to leaving on the 20th November.

Welcome to paradise!

Beautiful hotel....fantastic views....staff friendly and couldn’t be more helpful. Especially Everton and Debra (on Reception) who when I wanted to change rooms were very helpful in providing me with a new room and making my stay wonderfully happy.
