Hotel at Ipanema end of CopacabanaHotel Beach. The hotel has a nice entrance lobby and small bar area at the front. The staff were very friendly and helpful without fault. The breakfast was great with a good selection of fruit, cheeses, hams and cooked breakfast options.
The room I stayed in was fit for purpose but nothing more although I did pay extra for the beach view. Given the views at the side of the hotel look onto poor looking shabby buildings, I would not recommend staying in any other rooms. So upgrade is advised. All rooms have free Internet unless you are going to be downloading and sending large files, when you will have to pay a premium. I had no problems over the four days of my stay. Final comment on rooms with a view is that it can get noisy given windows are only single glazed. That said I slept fine.
The one area that really let the Hotel down, was my experience with dinner. The food was nothing short of terrible, which was a bit of a shock after experiencing a very good breakfast. My advice is don't dine at the hotel in the evening.
The hotel has a small gym and a postage stamp pool, more like a plunge pool. You cannot swim in it! The view from the roof top sun lounge area is fantastic and more should be made of this by the hotel.
The location is excellent for access to both of the best beaches in Rio, namely CopacabanaHotel and Ipanema. Good access to shops and I felt safe in this area of Rio.
