“Great location but a little over-priced”
Reviewed 24 June 2014 via mobile

Stayed here during the World Cup. So a modest room was heavily over-priced. But otherwise the place was clean and friendly, great breakfast and staff friendly if a bit mixed in terms of advice on seeing/ getting around Rio. But fantastic location and overall I would recommend.

The breakfast is amazing and the staff really kind. Despite of the noisy AC the rooms were clean and spacious bedrooms. The little pool on the mezanine had such a great view and was very clean. Would come back and recommend my friends definitely.

I was very apprehensive about staying at this hotel after reading some of the reports but was relieved to find that it was OK. Room OK, great breakfast, beach easy to walk to.and the staff were helpful when needed. My only real complaint was that the air conditioner was very noisy.
Absolutely fine for a short stay.

The rooms are good, spacious and clean for a budget hotel.
The location is great for shopping and the beach.
We didn't have too much noise even though we had a room on the front but there is construction going on both sides of the hotel.
The roof had a nice little pool with a good view of Christ the redeemer.

Reception however needs lessons in customer service!! It took us over 45 mins to check out after being ignored by the very rude reception staff. They wouldn't store our bags and are extremely unhelpful.

My friend insisted on staying at this hotel because the price was reasonable but anyone a bit smart knows that you get what you pay for!

The hotel has a poor quality in all aspects:
1. Location: although just 3 blocks from Copacabana beach, the street in which the hotel is located is really noisy and has a lot of traffic all day long. Seems that this is downtown and not copacabana!

2. Infrastructure: the hotel is decadent and needs updating in the rooms and restrooms which are very dark. The air conditioning is insanely noisy so if you are a light sleeper be aware of this. The bathroom broke 2 days before we left the hotel, flooding the whole restroom. Despite our calls to front desk nothing was done. We asked again for maintenance the following day but they didn't care. Since we paid full in advance, the hotel said there were nothing they could do. What a shame!!!!!!!
The TV also needed maintenance - it would lose cable sign now and then and the french chanel had no sound. Asked for maintenance but, again, nothing was done.

The only good thing here are breakfast and Samir, the front helper, who was very nice.

Stay at the Ibis or somewhere else for a much better deal! I do not recommend this hotel at all!

Pleasantly surprised by this hotel - huge room, clean and equipped. Great breakfast, friendly staff. It was a little noisy, but we didn't experience the level of disruption as some other reviewers - slept through the night. Location is good for copacabana beach and the metro. It's not the copacabana palace, but it's convenient. Good for the price considering how expensive rio has become.

The hotel has a good accommodation, breakfast and location however the employees don't help the tourist to find a best deal to visit the city. They offer services with prices over the average and if you don't agree they treat you bad. The employees take advantage from tourist. Also they charge for wifi. As a Brazilian I am shame to write this review but I am sure there are many other hotels better to stay. My recommendation: Check the prices outside of the hotel before agree with any service.
