Excellent location, one block away from world-famous Ipanema beach, reasonably priced parking facilities and spacious rooms equipped with a flat-screen TV, a small kitchenette, an eating area, a nice big sofa and even a balcony. All in all, a very pleasant experience and I would certainly recommend the Promenade Visconti to friends, family and business associates alike.

Room Tip: I'm not sure if all rooms have a balcony. Mine had one and it really made a difference.

Stayed here during a business trip. Our room was clean and quiet. Amenities are basic, but as long as you arent expecting a five-star experience, this place provides a great stay at a reasonable rate. Breakfast is also basic, but quite good. The location cant be beat, close to the beach, shopping and great food.

Chose hotel for location near Ipanema beach and were not disappointed. Great neighborhood. Safe. Upscale. Small lobby deceptive and we were surprised to find our large beautiful room was a suite. Breakfast included and though small in lobby was quite good. Only negative was view from room. We overlooked rooftops of nearby buildings. Would stay there again.

I selected this hotel based on price and location. It certainly upheld the pricing but the quality was fairly basic. It's very very basic - not sure how it gets the ratings it does. It's dated and not the cleanest of places. The furnishings in the room are very sparse. This is a 3-star hotel - on a generous curve. More like a 2 - 3 star place.

I was lucky enough to stay here for 3 nights. Everything about the hotel was ideal. The rooms are modern, spotlessly clean and spacious. The staff could not do enough to help. The location was perfect feeling safe and secure and only one block from the beach and a couple of blocks to Ipanema bars and restaurants.
Breakfast was also excellent by Rio standards (i stayed in 3 Rio hotels during an extended tour and this was certainly the best).
My only slight issue was the noise from a nearby bar which I understand is popular with locals and carries on until typically late for Rio - maybe 5 or 6a.m. at weekends. Despite being on the 6th floor I could still hear music & chatter until the early hours of the morning.
There is no rooftop swimming pool if that is important for you. There is a small pool and fitness room and sauna on the first floor with a strange, small sun patio also on the 1st floor. I did not use it but I'm not sure it could have secured much sun light!

I picked this hotel based on location and I was not disapponted. Only 1 block from the beach! The room was clean, spacious with a great balcony. Only complaint is that the hotel is next to a couple of bars that are open very very late. The noise level from the bars is pretty loud even with all the windows closed and the AC running. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was simple, but hit the spot. I would stay at this hotel again, but request a room on the opposite side of the bars.
While in Rio we hired Tour Guide Neyla for private tours. She was FANTASTIC! We got to see all the typical tourist places and off the beaten paths sights. I would highly recommend her.

Room Tip: Rooms on the opposite side of the bars.
