This is supposed to be one of the best hotels in Rio- mind you considering the hotels in Rio that's not saying much. For the amount of money they charge, you'd expect things to work and a certain level of service. It comes nowhere close. The Internet, which you have to pay for, barely works and required that they set up a router in my room.
The food is simply not acceptable- my hamburger ordered through room service was barely a step beyond McDonalds. While the breakfast buffet is fine, the room itself smells like some sort of institutional cafeteria. Not exactly the most appetising way to start your morning.
On the whole the hotel looks like it may have been quite posh in 1980 but now just looks a bit old and tired. It doesn't help that it's at the far end of the beach so there's really nothing around.
Either they should charge three star prices or they need to drop their prices significantly.
