“Debret hotel Cheapest alternative on the beach not much more.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 January 2014 via mobile

We stayed at this place for 3 nights. The first room we stayed in was on the 7th floor. There was no wifi, We asked to be moved and they moved us to The hird which had wifi.

Pros ; excellent location. Right across copacabana beach. Close walk to ipamena and approador. Breakfast area has a beautiful view is copacabana.

Cons.
The standard room ( the one we had on the 7th floor) was really run down, smelly, shower doesn't work properly , soap base was falling off, the sink was so small and old. Safe was so out dated.

The room on the third floor was a little better , comfortable enough for a 2.5 star stay room. Breakfast was very basic. The cakes were stale ( they were hard) , variety was poor and one of the morning when we woke up we had to eat on a dirty table because no one had cleaned them. No juices , more like cordial. Not good for the morning.

Overall , good place to stay for a short period of time. A little over priced. But all the hotels are in copacabana.

Best thing is being in a hotel right on Copacabana beach.
Pros:
Location is great, also the sea view rooms.
The restaurant has a great panoramic view of Copacabana beach and Sugar Loaf mountain.
Breakfast was great.
Staff were very friendly, and was able to change my room as per my request.
Hotel reception can provide all types of group trips through several travel agents in a flexible and quick manner.
Cons:
The hotel is more as three-star hotel, not very luxurious with basic furniture.
The elevator is remarkably very slow had to use the stairs several times.
Daily room cleaning is basic.

Room Tip: Corner sea view rooms are the best.

The staff was helpful and kind, the location is great, right next to Copacabana, but the hotel suffers from undergoing maintenance and refurbishing for the 2014 world cup. The staff also speaks a relatively good amount of English, which is nice.

We had a room on the 2nd floor, the windows are not isolated, and by not isolated, I mean there is a 1 cm gap all around the window. It might as well be open for all the noise we heard.

You need to pay extra if you wish to use the safe in the room. There were 2 sheets to cover the bed, since 1 bed sheet only covered about half... There were also hols in the linen. The room was humid, the air condition was so loud there was no way we could use it and sleep at the same time.

The breakfast was ok, but the whole floor looked as through it might fall apart any minute.

If you decide to stay at Hotel Debret, do so after it has been refurbished.

Room Tip: Ensure you get a room high up to get away from the noise on the street below

I stayed here for 4 nights, if you want to stay in a excellent location that's right across from the beach then stay here, but I think the price was too much considering the room I had was just average and it was dull and really needed updating
as others had mentioned the litfs are very slow so I used the stairs most of the time
the included breakfast was amazing, there is so much food and lots of variety and the view really was amazing you could see all the way up and down Copacabana beach.
they have a internet computer for you to use if you haven't got your own wifi device.

All the front office staff we encountered spoke English, really helpful for us.

Location is right on Av Atlantica, the road in front of the beach. Perfect for getting that 630am sunrise shot, and 6pm sunset photo.

Had "dinner" at kiosk on Copacabana beach one day, really nice - beer and fried chicken.

Rooms cleaning is average.

Water is very hot, for showers etc

Breakfast restaurant at top of hotel has excellent views.

Free wifi included.

The location is perfect just directly at Copacabana beach. However, the rooms are in very bad shape, terrible decor and things are falling apart. My room only had a window to a noisy inner shaft, the safe was not functional. Plus, the elevators are slow and outdated and do not feel that safe. The breakfast room on the top floor has a great view over the beach.

Debret could not be in a better location in Copacabana. I could see the beach from my room, an outstanding view, without mentioning the breakfast in the top floor. Staff is very friendly, the problem is that you need them more than you would like. The hotel building looks to be an old apartment building, with small rooms, old furnishing and mostly everything requiring some restoration.It is clean, breakfast is good enough. It looks overpriced, but in fact, almost everything in Copacabana is overpriced. It has triple rooms, which is good if in family vacations.

Room Tip: Outstanding view from the front rooms. It has a good acoustic insulation, so do not worry about the...
