Can't be better for stepping out of the "madding crowd" after a day of sightseeing. The hotel is across the street from Ipanema Beach, near a stand that sells fresh coconut water, and a good walk to the edge of Copacabana on one side or Leblon on the other. Many people have said it is worth it to take an oceanfront room. We did not. We wanted the quiet of an "inside" room, although we found that the room needed to be on an upper floor so as have enough light and not to feel claustrophobic, and the EXCELLENT hotel staff was able to accommodate us. When we wanted to see the ocean, we went to the small but pleasant rooftop pool and bar or we walked out to the beach itself. The hotel rooms are large enough to accommodate what you need, and the staff is attentive, pleasant, and fabulously helpful with everything from a non-functioning TV remote to booking tours to printing boarding passes. The breakfasts are ample and pleasant; the dinner menu is large and above average.
