This is a big hotel, right on the shores of Copacobana Beach, and 5 minutes walk to Ipanema Beach. You can't get a much better location.
The club lounge is a bonus too. It's worth paying extra for access to the top floor lounge (for free drinks and food all day) and a view (albeit distant) of Christ the Redeemer.
But the hotel is going through refurbishment at the moment. So some of the restaurants are closed at the moment. And there is building noise quite regularly during the day.
The rooms are alos fairl old and drab (with lots of wood panelling), so not the most modern hotel in the world.
In short, a pretty expensive hotel for what you get. But if it's location you're looking for, it's ideal.
