“Very pleasant”
Reviewed 24 August 2014 via mobile

An extremely well located abode. Great views and a cozy environment. A good spot to be in the city....yet away from it.

The staff are amazing and very courteous, friendly and helpful. The services are abundant at a short call.

Definitely a go !!

Great hotel, great view, great experience! I will come back for sure! The staff was very helpful, the bedroom clean and the area of Santa Teresa is magical! Every room is independent and has a different view, it's really amazing!

For 440 real a night I just expected far more.
The room I had was really unhealthy, I had to sleep with the door open. Aircirculation didn't work I think.
Hot water was very lame.
Breakfast was the only thing worthy for staying there.

Overall nice hotel, the room was very nice and clean and the view was amazing. The staff were friendly and helpful, and I felt very comfy on the big bed and lovely pillows.
However, there was only lukewarm water in the shower and the hairdryer plug didn't fit in the wall (nor fit into my adapter). I also arranged a taxi with the hotel to pick me up from the airport, which never arrived, so I ended up getting one from airport... which was actually $50 cheaper than what the hotel charged. I noticed the charges from the hotel were on the high side... a private tour was $900, whereas a longer tour on Tripadvisor was $750, so think prices are inflated... but depends what you're happy to pay. Also, the wifi came and went, it wasn't consistently working and had to keep reconnecting.

This hotel was awesome. The staff are extremely helpful (particularly Diego and Rose), the rooms are clean, breakfast is delicious and the views are amazing. I highly recommend this hotel. The location is especially nice as it removes you from the hustle and bustle of Rio.
