“Overall good hotel”
Reviewed 31 October 2011

I have no complaints about the hotel. Breakfast was good, location is very central and room was very comfy. The gym is a waste of space and the machines very outdated. But overall it was a very good experience

Room Tip: Although not close from hotel is worth the ride to barra de lapa, the whole area on weekend nights g...

My family and stayed only two nights and we don't have any complaints. Ok, my son said that the internet speed is not that good and you have to pay for it. Apart from this issue, it is a nice hotel with a decent breakfast. A good location in a safe area. I strongly recommend visiting Bar Cevada (restaurant) just across the square opposite the hotel - for an authentic 'carioca' fare.

Stayed here during my trip, recommended by SouthAmerica.travel. I would consider this a 3 star hotel. The hotel is located in a really convenient location, walk a couple blocks and you are on Copacabana beach, which is beautiful. The neighborhood was close to restaurants and a supermarket.

The continental breakfast was included, there was hot food such as scrambled eggs and bacon along with danishes and cereal. The pool was located on the roof and was a nice size. The room decor was basic, flat screen, 2 full size beds. The room was clean.

Overall, I enjoyed the location of the hotel, which won out over the decor. The staff was friendly, and I was able to converse in english.

The only thing I would say is that the room needed some updating, but overall a pleasant stay.

We stayed here as part of a tour arranged by LatinEscapes.com.

This hotel was in a great location. There were plenty of shops and restaurants around it, and its proximity to the beach was nice. While it was not directly next to the beach (it was a couple of blocks away), we actually preferred it this way. The crowd that stayed at the hotel didn't seem to be suited to the group that would be walking into the lobby wearing board shorts or a bikini from the beach. It seemed more suited to groups looking to sight see around the city.

The room we stayed in was clean and basic with few frills. The bathrooms were clean, and the beds were comfortable.

The breakfast was also basic, but there were plenty of options in the morning. The dinner and lunch buffet were a bit more expensive, but they also had plenty of options.

The service was excellent. The manager and staff was accommodating to us with any all questions we had. While there was a charge for Wi-Fi, the manager was nice enough to waive the cost for two days because of an issue we were having with multiple computers using the connection in the room.

This was a great hotel, and we would stay here again if we were to visit Rio again.

On a separate note, LatinEscapes.com helped set this up, and their staff was great. We were a little hesitant as we usually do not book vacations through a travel agency, and there were not many reviews anywhere on the internet (for you security fiends: there are so few WOT ratings that they still have a rating of "?"), but we decided to give it a chance as the price was too good. We are glad to say that the trip was wonderful, and we could not have been happier with the service provided by LatinEscapes.com. Our agent, Al, was helpful before and during the trip. My mom loves to ask questions, and he had an answer for each one. Before the trip, he told us how the hotel arrangements worked, what we would see on the tour, and we felt very comfortable voicing all of our concerns. He made sure to make us feel as comfortable as possible. We had a question during the trip regarding one of our tour groups so we sent him an email, and he made the international call to us almost as soon as we sent off the message to resolve the issue. I travel a significant amount, and I usually do not come on TripAdvisor, but I really feel that people would be missing out if they did not give LatinEscapes.com a shot if they are planning a trip to South America.
