The hotel is beautiful and the location is awesome. You feel very safer in Barra da Tijuca than you feel in places like Copacabana. A lot of restaurants and cool places to go very close to the hotel. The beach right in front of the hotel is the high point!

OK, first the positives: - great location - right across the street from a great beach, very close to a street with lots of restaurants - fantastic breakfast - huge variety of pretty good food - free On the negative side, my main complaint involves the front desk staff (they don't have a concierge). We were talking with them about... More

We were here for 3 nights. The hotel is conveniently located across the street from the beach. We were in Rio for a festival - and we were well taken care of. The breakfast that came with the room was nice- good choice of fruit, it was a bit limited in hot choices, but the quality was good. Our room... More

ThIs hotel is very comfortable. There exists a pleasant mix between vacationers and people in town on business. The hotel is quite expensive but this seems to be the case for most of the area. The Internet is very reliable. The food is a little less reliable, however. Utilize the restaurant choices in the area.

We were booked here as part of a carnival package and we were apprehensive because of poor previous reviews. We need not have worried as none of the adverse reviews applied. The room was clean and bed really comfortable. Because of our interest in Carnival we only ate breakfast in the hotel which was very acceptable. The staff were very... More

The hotel is probably one of the best locations in Barra da Tijuca. It is quiet and is very conveniently located to the shops and beach. Charles at the front desk was a great help to us and provided great information and consideration during our stay there. They also have great views of the surrounding area. Would recommend it as...

Horrible hotel, disgusting rooms, poor customer service. Didn't get the room cleaned for two days, tried to talk to the manager 4 times and supposedly she was never there, and we saw her hidding in the front desk office. Awful smell in the rooms, and the restaurant was disgusting, they would clean up the tables after people left so you... More
