Wonderful Experience, highly recommended! Service Amazing!
Reviewed 1 week ago

We had a wonderful experience in this hotel! really high standard, rooms have amazing views over Sugar Loaf, and from the rooftop one can see the christ. Rooms really comfortable, an always very clean! The person in charge of cleaning our room was Joao Alber he always did an amazing job. Breakfast was really the highlight of the trip, a good mix of Brasilian food, and western food! The best part of our stay was the staff though, we were in touch in particular with Felipe and Felipe and Anderson. They did an amazing job in booking us trips within the city, if you ever visit the hotel ask for them! You wont be disappointed. We did a trip to football stadium to see Botafogo playing with guide Joao, and a wonderful trip to the forest and to Iilia Grande with guide Alexandra. If ever in Rio again we will definitely stay in Yoo2 again! The district is wonderful really safe, and plenty of nice bar, not to mention very well connected with the Metro!

Funky hotel - great vibe!

Stayed here for 4 nights in June and had a great time. The hotel has a tropical theme, and palm tree decor abounds. The rooftop terrace bar has stunning views over Botafogo beach to Sugarloaf Mountain, and a clear view of Christ the Redeemer from the other side. Rooms a little on the small side, but - hey, this is Rio - so you only go there to sleep! Best bit is the staff - really friendly and helpful - especially on Reception. Two main stars on the desk there are Reis and Deborah - couldn't have been nicer!!

Cool funky vibe but service does not quite match decor

Lovely location and a very cool funky, boutique hotel vibe. Rooms
Small but functional. Love the wall art mural as you travel up in the lift, shame I can’t say the same about the service - despite lots of staff, hard to get attention and limited English language capability.

Great for a short stay in Rio

We used this hotel for a couple of nights when we first arrived in Rio. Good location for all the sights. Clean rooms and friendly staff. Great roof bar with views of Sugarloaf and Christ the Redeemer. Nice food from the bar, the restaurant was closed as it was a Sunday.

Great location and stunning views!

The Yoo2 is a vibrant hotel in the Botafogo district of Rio, a stone's throw from all the main attractions.
All rooms offer spectacular views of Sugar Loaf Mountain or Corcovado (Christ the Redeemer) the hotel has a very trendy, design feel. There is a rooftop bar and a lovely terrace and pool area from which to enjoy the breathtaking views over a cocktail or two!
There is a relaxed atmosphere throughout the hotel, staff are friendly and very efficient.
The bed is very comfortable the room amenities are of a very good standard.
The breakfast is good, with a lot of of fresh hot and cold food on offer.
There is a private event room ideal for business meetings, the hotel also holds private events in the restaurant and rooftop bar/ terrace, a wedding reception was taking place during our stay but anyone could still use part of the terrace space.
I would definitely recommend the Yoo2 to both business and leisure travellers.
