Stayed here for two nights, our first time in Rio. Location was great, right on Avenida Atlantica and across the street from Sector 3 of Copacabana Beach. Our room was spotless and with beach views. Great rooftop bar and swimming pool, excellent breakfast. Reasonably priced for the value you get, this is more of a 4.5 star review.

An absolutely brilliant place to be while in Rio- right on the Avenida Atlantica overlooking Copacabana beach and a great big ocean beyond. We were here for 3 nights- about right if you want to get round Brazil- and our room was on the 3rd floor- high enough to get a great view. No balcony though. Breakfast was great- particularly...

My girlfriend and I visited this hotel after getting a super deal off Expedia (flight and hotel). In the heart of the Copacabana, beachfront, friendly staff, good/free brekky, had a funky smell on my floor and no hot tub. Roof vista! Recommended!

Excellent views if you get a corner suite with full sea view. Rooftop bar was great for late afternoon drinks and views also. Room is not plush and bed was very firm but we were comfortable enough. You can open the room window to enjoy the sea air and sound of the waves which was lovely. Don't expect much in... More

Dear Guest, thank you very much for your comments at Trip Advisor. In fact we went through maintenance days with one of our lifts.

Stayed for 7 nights. Front amazing view to Copacabana beach. Hotel location is ideal and at a distance walking to Ipanema or even to the Sugar loaf mountain, and near any facility one would require. Hotel staff was polite, attentive and very helpful. Breakfast was rich with a verity of dishes. The only small point was the (free) internet which... More
