We stayed here for 4 nights based on the reviews on trip advisor. Benjamin who owns the hotel was fantastic, friendly and helpful, a pleasure to deal with.
Great location near ipanema although it is on a fairly steep hill so bewarned.
Lovely hotel, beautiful small touches and very clean. Very classy and elegant just like its owner.
Firm bed and great shower.
We took a tour with Benjamin's neighbor Marco who spoke great English and was 100 reals per hour (at time or writing one real = approx 1 AUD / 1 USD)
Additional services very expensive. Breakfast was great but was very costly for what we got. One day we ordered toast and were brought a fruit platter we didn't order, we assumed for free. Unfortunately it ended up costing us about $35 USD.
Another thing was laundry - we dropped some laundry off (and I should have asked the cost!) - probably about 12 tshirts and 20 pairs of socks and underpants - the bill for this was almost $220 USD - I was absolutely gobsmacked by this, I couldn't believe it.
Apart from the very expensive extras it is a fantastic hotel run by a fantastic bloke and I would certainly stay there again, I'd just do my laundry myself.
Hope this helps someone.
