Very helpful and pleasant front desk staff.
Curious long ugly bedroom - reminiscent of boarding house dormitory - comfy enough bed - room for almost 3 more King beds in here. Or a ping-pong table and bar.
Couple of VERY odd ceiling lights whose switches were hidden on the face of a defunct radio unit - took me three days to master the tactile art of turning them on/off!!! What a stupid system!!!!!
Tiny bathroom. Have to almost stand on the loo to open the door wide enough to pass through. Ghastly toiletries. Superb gushing shower (having come from water-saving Melbourne).
Very inconsistent (though free) WiFi.
Very good spread for the included breakfast - excellent endless coffee.
Very good dinner restaurant - good wine list.
Hotel suggestion of "ViaCopa" day tour was superb value - they really took great care to give you a good Rio experience.
Excellently placed for Copa Beach access - best asset.
Good rooftop pool and bar.
Great caipirinha maker behind the mezzanine bar - yum!
Final checkout efficient and painless
