“Great”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

Spent 3 days in this hotel and I must say a very big difference from the hotel we stayed in before coming there. Very nice rooms and great selection of breakfast. Beautiful view from our room to beach, Fast check in and out and friendly staff. Thank you very much and we will come back.

Room Tip: High Floor and Sea view

Stayed in this hotel in July 2014 and as a previous reviewer had said it was one of the few offered a family room in Rio. Staff spoke English which is not a common thing in most of Brazil. Rio is expensive and this place was safe and offered good value. Would go back again.

I chose the hotel, because it was one of the few that offered a three bed room. The location is central to Copacabana. Our room did not have an ocean view, but was a good size and comfortable. A little tired maybe, but in keeping with the star rating in this part of Rio. The staff were amazing - so helpful and always smiling. The breakfast buffet was excellent and the bar man had our night caps ready, without us asking. We checked in at 6am and they gave us a room to use, at no extra charge. We came back later and our bags had been moved to our designated room. Such great service! Highly recommended, especially for families.

The service was very good. The front desk staff was amazing. The food was good too.
Everything was great except our room.
It was old and in desperate need of renovation. Ocean view room is recommended (distracts from the room)! Then again, we were only in our room to sleep so for us it was OK.

Room Tip: High floor and beach view!!

We booked a luxury double room with balcony for a few nights at the start of the World Cup .

What a superb location this hotel is in. We overlooked the fifa fanfest where we watched Brazils opening game with 100,000 others, an experience I will never forget.

The view from the balcony was unbelievable, especially at 6am when the sun came up. The atmosphere down copacabana during the World Cup was fantastic, and the positioning of the hotel put us in the centre of it all.

The room was big. Although the bathroom was a little dated and the hotel did not have a pool, the location and reception staff more than made up for it.

Breakfast was plentiful, and the dining room was really classy. I will definitely come back to stay here.

Overall my wife and I loved the hotel .

One word of advice, do not get a hotel to the airport through the hotel, they are more expensive than hailing one down on the street.

Stayed June 2014

I stayed here for a week during the World Cup and had a blast. The room was nice and big enough for my friend and I. Renato and Rodrigo in particular were very helpful at the front desk and the workers were friendly. I lucked out in that they spoke English at the hotel since my Portuguese is limited and they addressed any concerns of mine. It also didn't hurt that it was right across the street from Copacabana Beach. I would absolutely stay here again!
