Stayed in this hotel from 18 to 27 September 2014 being on business. The biggest and almost only advantage was the ocean view. The second was hotel hair conditioner that went very well with my hair :))). I would dare say the word "service" is not known at this hotel. Starting with poor breakfasts and ending with lack of culture... More

The location was promising, as was the look of the foyer. My 4th time in Rio for business and the most disappointing stay. The rooms ewe clean enough but the service was the worst I have experienced in a while traveling. Firstly trying to find someone who speaks English is a challenge. Don't expect your mini bar to be refreshed... More

The rooms are well furnished and the rooms facing the beach offer an enchanting view. we were in the rooms that faced the beach on one side and the mountains on the other which made it a very romantic view. The breakfast... More

The hotel is directly across the street from the beach so rooms have great views. The buffet breakfast is delicious including everything from fresh fruits, breads, eggs, sausages, etc. The bed in our room was very comfortable and the room temperature was perfect. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We had just 2 complaints. There were never enough towels... More

I was there in the world cup period. The room itself is nice. It has a small balcony and you can watch the beach. Service is average. You cannot even order a coffee in the room nor take the coffee from breakfast up to your room (without paying for it). Internet is available, BUT you must pay for it too.... More

It was my first time visiting Brazil, so i don't know how to compare this hotel to other hotels in Brazil, but overall nothing significant bothered me, it was a nice stay, the food recipes was different and strange to me but tastes good and clean, and for sure a lot of tropical fruits in the buffet. The hotel was... More

How to evaluate a hotel that you cannot even to do the check in? This is what happened to me. I booked the hotel and when I arrived at the lobby to my check in, the room that I had reserved 3 weeks before going there, was not available with king size bed although it was clearly described in my...

The hotel is recent refurbished. The smell in the hotel is terrible. I don't know if it is because of the refurbishment. The gym is so small and doesn't have any air conditioner. I didn't have problems with the room.

A very nice building and place! But no respect they charge for internet service there's no vallet parking and worst, they gave me a key of an occupied room!. Avoid it!!!!!!! The owners are taking advantage of the Brazilian Soccer World Cup!, and damaging the image of us, Brazilians!
