“Warning!!!”
Reviewed 6 March 2010

My second stay in this hotel in the last three years. Every other hotel was full My colleague had his credit card skimmed by the waiter in the cafe/bar downstairs!! A large sum was withdrawn from his account illegally. Another colleague had her laptop stolen from her room on our previous stay!

Old a and dirty rooms and batthrooms. Old, non-working window airconditioners. Room is noisy as hell if you are facing the beach.Lifts barely work. No internet Dining room downstairs turns into a noisy nightclub on weekends.

On a positive note the food in their dining room was tasty and good value.

Reviewed 5 November 2009

I arrived here hot and tired on a day when Rio had a soaring temperatures of 39 degrees.I tried to turn on the air conditioning in my room and it fell off the wall. I was hungry and went to the restaurant and it was closed for refurbishment. The nearest bar appeared to be full of working girls - whom I fully respect but just so you know. I was eaten alive by mosquitoes as I had to leave the window open. I came back next day and the air conditioning machine was still on the floor. I asked for help, it was promised and none came.The door to my room looked like it has been broken into to but I think that was just the door. This was clearly once a nice hotel but if it has simply lost its way and it is about time some internet guides caught up with that. My usual advice for Rio applies - if you want to stay somewhere nice - go to Ipanema. I hope somebody spends some money on this hotel before the Olympics.....in the meantime - sorry, no.

It’s a pity that a nice building facing Copacabana Beach, with beautiful art deco architecture and huge rooms, is completely wasted in one area where the square meter is rated one of the most expensive in Rio. Any visionary hotel brand as W Hotels, One & Only, Anantara, Grand Millenium… etc… should buy this property and make it a hotel to compete with the next door Copabana Palace. There are too many disgusting things about this place, the bathroom is old, ugly, dirty with stains, the linen and bath towels are old with poor quality, the carpets look as if they've never been vacuumed (I was afraid of finding bugs on it), the T.V and AC are old and noisy I decided to sleep with the window open to fresh the room, what was almost impossible in Rio. The elevator works badly, the lobby is dark they don’t use the natural brightness of this sunny city, the entrance bar and the first floor restaurant are claustrophobic. The breakfast is poor. The staff is not friendly, except people from the front desk who are very, but very nice and work very hard. It’s a nice property that just needs investments in all points to worth paying more than R$ 200.00 per night for a single room.

Stayed here in September 2004. Read a few reviews in Fodor's and Frommers and while I can see that the hotel had some charm with its art deco architecture, beautiful central stairway in mosaic, it all seems like it was in the past...be aware of the following:
1) Rooms are ok but carpeting is in desperate need of replacement.
2) service is ok, but not great.
3) We had booked a suite (very large for the $) but one of the nights was not available. They gave us an "upgraded" room for 1 night waiting for their super suite. When it came time to move they said that the previous passenger's flight had been cancelled and as a result they would not be able to honor our reservation. I checked out immediately.
On the upside, the restaurant was good.

I suggest other hotels that are better kept and you can find superb deals on the internet.
