Tiffany's Residence Service
Ranked #199 of 286 Hotels in Rio de Janeiro
Reviewed 13 May 2013

Consistent with other TA reviews, the apartment building is in a great location with superb views from the upper floors. However, the actual apartment was a disgrace considering how much it costs. The furniture, decor and fittings appear to be circa 1970's and very poorly maintained. Makeshift wiring, broken cabinets, broken fittings. But good internet. Unless you are desperate for the view, avoid at all costs. Ipanema accommodation is famous for being over-priced and run down and Tiffany's continues this tradition. Why the apartment owners don't spend a bit on these multi-million dollar apartments boggles my mind.

Room Tip: Request an ocean facing apartment on a high floor (12 or above).

Well-located, near the beach, but our apartment was dirty and poorly-designed. The kitchen appliances were old and the kitchen cabinets were either broken or dirty. Remnants of food had been left on the stove and the master bedroom was filthy. The pillow sheets had blood stains on them. The real estate agency who rented us the place was very on the ball in asking us to pay in advance but very lazy in terms of providing a decent place for clients to live in.

Lived in Tiffanys for several weeks while working in Rio. The rooms apparently are owned by different people so the furniture may be different. we had a room on the 15th floor. great balconys and views, but the rooms were in poor condition, bathrooms especially were not very nice (and very small), the carpets were old and smelling, the kitchen was very small, and the dishes supplied in the kitchen looked like they never were washed thoroughly.
The place is in a great location for the beach, and the balconys are fantastic (although it is somewhat loud in the area, need to keep the ac on to drown out the noise of traffic) the front desk persons are friendly but are not fluent in english and the information about services in the hotel are scant. the breakfast is hardly more than u could make urself in ur tiny kitchen, but ok price. Internet service in our room was good as was tv service. (and they were fairly prompt to resolve the problem when internet went down).

Recommend this place if u are going to live on the beach and just need a place to crash but i would rate the overall standard of the hotel as 2 stars at the most.

No info about the services at the reception - nothing inside the apartment... the leaflets had just run out... not in good shape...maintenance needed urgently... kitchen is equipped horribly, is just a joke..and cleaning is not included..who would ever want so use such a kitchen?????... towels with big holes! ... lamps falling apart ... service without follow-up...very poor value for the price you pay!
