“Excellent hotel - great location!!!”
Reviewed 27 January 2014

Loved this hotel across the road from Copacabana Beach. Clean, roomy, great breakfast selection. Breakfast room overlooked the beach. Nice way to start the day. Internet access only in the lobby, that was fine. Taxi stand right outside hotel and the concierge very helpful.
Eateries were located a couple of streets away and behind the hotel there was a McDonalds, supermarket, and banks.
Rooftop bar and pool have a spectacular view!!
Night markets were a bit of a walk away, but the exercise did us good.

Room Tip: Any view of the ocean!!

Rooms are basic but comfortable, great views from rooftop pool bar overlooking beach, convenient location close to beach, restaurants and mini marts, many staff English speaking/comprehending, 24 hour room service

excellent location, great breakfast, great staff. No free internet in the room, no pressing iron either. no bath tub, shower only. (Standard room). It was our first time in Rio, next time I will choose to stay on Ipanema beach instead of Copacabana beach. Much cleaner...

Room Tip: rooms are small, I guess if you stay on the 14th floor would be nice (top floor)

We chose this hotel for an extra 2 days in Rio after a cruise. The location was great as it was right across from the beach. There was plenty of selection for eateries within close walking distance. Shopping was a block away and quite walkable in either direction.
Our room was quite adequate with a view of the beach. Both room and bathroom were a comfortable size and relatively clean. However, the handle of the hairdryer had not been cleaned for sometime and fortunately we did not need it. The downside of the hotel is that the walls are less than soundproof.
The breakfasts were generous with a good variety.
We found the front desk staff to be helpful. They spoke English as our Portuguese was less than limited. It was great to see a cold weather Christmas theme in the lobby.

Room Tip: Ask for a room a few floors up facing the beach.

we were looking for something right on the beach that wouldn't break the bank....especially before new years as most places in rio have 4 night minimums and triple price increases. perfect location, attentive staff (surprised at how many spoke some english). breakfast buffet every morning was way above expectations. rooftop pool was small but great view and enough chairs and tables to go around (heat wave made the beach a better option but the shade up on the roof was nice too) also nice location (few blocks from subway to ipanema) rooms nothing special but clean and well kept. only side note is the elevator/key system was frustrating at times as magnetic strips worked sporadically. free wifi in lobby and roof top was nice bonus too!

Room Tip: beach front view worthwhile!!

Excellently located hotel, clean and tidy with a great rooftop pool and bar. Food is poor, service is slow. Price is based on location, not actual quality of hotel fixtures and fittings. But as you are right next to Copacabana and if you are staying in this hotel it is unlikely you want to spend much time inside, it is a good choice and balance between location and price.

Room Tip: We stayed on floor 14 (same as pool) for no extra cost, this was greta for access to pool and bar ar...

Location was good ,staff seems to think they doing you a favour by just being at work...
There were no greetings from anyone apart from when we checked in (reception)and we stayed 5 nights?!
Most of the time I felt invisible and ignored in this place and I would not return to this hotel , there's a Marriott Hotel within 100yds and if I was going back I would definetely stay there instead.

Room Tip: Ocean view on higher floors
