I have tried this hotel on a 3 day business trip to Rio and it was a very good choice even though I did not have the time to enjoy their beautiful pool or the other services. My use of the hotel was mainly for sleeping and breakfast, so...
Location: Barra da Tijuca is a great place to stay because you have a lot to do and see (beaches, malls and good restaurants) however the distances always require the use of taxis or a car. It´s not exactly the feel of the real Rio de Janeiro but if you are looking for a safe (at least I felt safe here...) and quiet place to stay you should be OK here. The hotel is situated in a quiet and nice neighborhood. Great to sleep but not much around if you want to walk to places. Get a cab to go to Barra Shopping (about R$ 15,00) and you will have everything you need at your disposal.
Rooms: Their rooms are small but decent and had good quality and sparkling clean sheets. My room had 2 beds (slightly bigger than a single bed, a nice surprise). It had a nice terrace with a beautiful view...
Service: Check in was a little slow but efficient. Housekeeping did a great job cleaning the rooms and the guys at the restaurant were GREAT, helpful and acommodating. They even allowed us to have breakfast some minutes before the restaurant open at 6:30 because we had an early flight.
All in all, a very nice - although a little pricey - place to stay.
