do not get me wrong, these 2 stars don't mean you are paying 2 star pricing. this is a giant scam ...to put this still polite. I stayed there last week for the World Cup and could not believe the actual value (LOL) for money you get in this overrated MEGALUXURY (being sarcastic) hotel.
It started at the check-in....no one actually cared at all about you ...it does not matter you were going to spend an astronomous fortune on an IBIS STYLE HOTEL. The funny curtain and the absurdous lobby decoration (you can see PHILIPPE STARCK IS FRENCH because the decoration is mediocre like in a Parisian 5 star hotel) is not at all suitable for the self proclaimed best hotel in rio.
okay after almost getting angry they finally noticed me and my 10000 AUD booking...good for me. I got me suite thanks to visa black concierge booking and even a balcony.
THE VIEWS ARE TO DIE FOR .....THE BILL TO DIE AFTER GETTING IT LOL.
I like the nice suites but they actually are tiny ...yes like a french hotel room somewhere in paris . the room service never ever even made it to get me some champagne.
so my wife and I we went up to the roofdeck where fat ,greasy old men gave her their business cards...nice atmosphere .....
so what kind of joint is this ???
we took it jokingly and embarrassingly for them ...pointing them out and laughing ...but this place is neither decent in pricing nor in clients....
I would consider vthis a 3 star hotel at its best with 7 star prices !!!
ridiculously overpriced. i paid 500 aud for a bottle of champagne....
even in gorgeous and expensive sidney this would have been no more than 150 us....even at the star casino....
ahhh///this place is really noisy....and in spite of charging a fortune in rates and they easily could afford solid 18k gold walls they just made them out of paper...
if you like to stay up late, door bangers and yelling gentlemen (or whatever they were) this is the place....
if you have money to burn and like your girl being harassed by w.....s this is the place lol
if not try the jw. marriott where we will stay in the future.
rio itself is a gorgeous city which is well worth a visit.....
have fun mates !
