Okay, so I'm not going to sugar coat it and say that this is a 4-5 star property, because, well, it's not. But it is as solid of a 3-star property as you will find in Rio. Completely safe location, centrally located and tremendous value. I saw another reviewer say that this place is overpriced, well you clearly don't know... More

After a disastrous experience at Rondovia, our travel agent (who was fortunately travelling with us) managed a saving move to SESC for our two remaining nights in Rio. Location is good, in a pretty quiet street near Copacabana beach and various nice bars and restaurants. My room was ok, nothing special to highlight, but at least no issue. Like most... More

Great location near Copacabana, but unfriendly staff, wifi and elevator (waiting time sometimes more than 10 minutes, guests walk in the staircase because they have enough) do not work properly, mold in the shower, totally overpriced

I loved this location hotel. Is very near from the beach and from the bus stop which takes you to the main touristic attractions. The apartments are comfortable and has a fair price if you are comparing to the most hotels in this city.

This hotel is deemed to be a three star hotel in Brazil, but would be the equivalent of a two star hotel in North America. The best thing related to the hotel is its location. It is in an excellent location. Right in the middle of Copacabana, but in a quiet street. Steps from the beach and the busy N.S.... More
