    The staff was helpful. The restaurant served a delicious fillet mignon. There is a van to and from the airport every 20 min. Overall this is an excellent hotel to stay while you wait to catch your new flight.

    The staff was very friendly and eager to assist me in anything that I needed. I think that I became friends with some of the staff there. The only thing I didn’t like was the location of the hotel. It is in the middle of nowhere but it is close to the airport. The food was very good. Overall I would stay there again.

    The hotel is perfect for spending one night before a flight that leaves early in the morning or a stopover, or connecting flights, etc. It has a free shuttle service every 20 min. The hotel room is simple but it is all you need for just a night or two. Beware that Rio de Janeiro is a large city with very complicated transit. It has mountains and it can take about 25-30 minutes to leave the airport area. So expect to have about an hour to get to the centre or beach area, or a mall. LINX is an airport hotel, not a city hotel for touring. Overall the hotel rooms are ok. They offer only 1 shampoo, 1 conditioner and 1 soap, one large towel per guest (we were 2 at each room). No face or hands towels. It has to areas with a restaurant and another small market very nice to grab some food. I haven't seen the rest of the hotel premises. Staff was kind and helpful. We arrived early in the morning (check-in is at 2 PM). They even offered us an early check-in to a different room, not the one we reserved (We needed two rooms very close to each other because we were with the kids and they were not ready yet). When we came back in the evening, for the second room, they offered a separate room on a different floor or to move to two new rooms close to each other. So they were very flexible and adapted to our needs as a family with small children.

    Not good

    We expected a basic hotel (which is fine) but the couldn‘t even get the basics right. Not a good hotel especially for the high price.
