Stayed here twice for work in July. The location couldn't be better if you plan to spend a lot of time at Copacabana beach, it's directly across the street. I wasn't lucky enough to have a room with a beach view, which was a bummer. So my view was of the building next door (boo). The breakfast buffet was also great... something for everyone. Hot, cold, local items as well as familiar American items. Nice mix.
The room itself was small but functional. I had two twin beds. Bed was hard as a brick but when you've been traveling all day, or up half the night dining and socializing, it sleeps fine. The shower was nice size and all the regular amenities are available in the bath. I had trouble regulating the AC in the room both times but it wasn't uncomfortable (it was either cold or off, and even though it was the middle of the winter, temps were still pleasant at approx. 80 F). Internet available at add'l cost ($$) but free in the lobby. Didn't use the pool, gym, or other spaces so no comment there.
So, overall, not bad, but can't say it was anything to write home about.
