- Location - superb, opposite Ipanema beach. The hotel provides beach towels, chairs and umbrellas - They also provide rain umbrellas in the event of inclement weather - Reception staff were super friendly and helpful in making restaurant recommendations, giving directions, booking hang-gliding - The views from the rooftop bar are incredible.

This hotel is situated in front of "posto 9" in Ipanema beach and is very close to the Ipanema shopping area, restaurants and obviously the beach. The hotel looks pretty new and everything worked perfectly. It has a deck with great beach views and a small (3-4 people) plunge pool. Overall, this is a very good hotel with great service.... More

I stayed there just one day after the not-at-all-affordable Rio's Reveillon (New Year's Eve) and I found out that this was the gayest, coziest, four star hotel in Rio for half the price the normal high season fares... The roof top is a must! The view of Ipanema beach and the Dois irmaos is breathtaking including a nice hot-tub pool... More

This hotel is located right on Ipanema Beach. The rooms are very spacious and clean. The bathtub in my room was extremely difficult to get in and out of because it had a very high wall. They provide you with chairs and umbrellas for the beach. The staff are very helpful and most speak a fair amount of English. The... More

Do you want to just get out of your room and go to the beach? Well, this is it! You can't do better than this. Of course, if you want to go to the pool (well actually is more like a basin), you can always go but why would you want to go to the pool when you have an... More

As recommended to us by our family in Brazil this hotel is a great place to stay in Rio. Ideally located on the beach, good value, great food and very friendly staff.

Considering this hotel an expensive option to stay in Rio - we've decided to dive-in for 4 nights just so we can chill and relax right on the beach: free umbrella, chair, towels, leave valuables in the hotel and enjoy worry-free swimming from the very morning (when Ipanema is not crowded yet and the waves/currents are not as bad) as...

How unethical to rent rooms while you are doing major construction. You should close the hotel until most is completed. Money over morals. All day long there was a jackhammer going right above our room. I had a horrible migraine and needed to just lay down in a dark quiet room. The staff was very nice, but management is unethical.

The management of the hotel is very sorry and apologize for the annoyance experienced by the guest. There were no major construction going on at the hotel in that period and, when necessary, all the construction services are held from 10am to 5 pm, looking forward the minimum disturbance for the clients. We appreciate the time you took to share... More

We spent two nights here. The hotel is perfectly located in front of the Ipanema beach. The rooms are nice and clean. The pool on the roof top was a bit disappointing as it was rather a pee-water then a refreshing experience. However the view is great. Take care to have a room towards the beach. On the side the...
