Hotel is at the copa beach. Nice view nice buffet breakfast. Rooms are ok but need to refresh the decoration. We had good stay for three days. Personnel were very helpful. Concierge helped for reservation to restaurants. Just the taxi service of the hotel is very expensive. Take the ordinary. All were safe

Great view from rooms facing Copacabana beach. Location is perfect, short walk to the beach, it has supermarkets and other stores near by, and there are taxis available all the time. Service is great, most of the people speak english and spanish. You can get food and drinks from the hotel's restaurant served in the beach and they provide you... More

You can't do much better than this hotel for location and view, assuming you get an ocean view. Staff very helpful and focused on excellent service. Our mini-suite was comfortable, though the A/C blows from the outside room. This mean no direct air on you when you're sleeping (good), but you have to turn it very cold to be comfortable... More

This hotel is in an excellent location right across from the beach. It's also a short walk to Ipanema. The breakfast is good, and the setting is lovely. The staff are very helpful and friendly. The rooms are very dated, and they smell musky. The decor is very old (70s carpet in the hallways needs to go!). My room was... More

The hotel is situated at one bed of Copacabana beach with wonderful views from the breakfast room around the bay towards Sugar Loaf Mountain. We splashed out on a room with the same view and it was spectacular - we did in fact choose the hotel specifically for the view. The hotel is somewhat dated (originally opened in 1979) and... More

It should be great, the location is fantastic (the best on the strip in my opinion), the facilities and rooms are great and the staff are pleasant however it just misses the mark. It appears the main issues are an archaic computer system on the front desk (it took me 45 minutes to check in, and the same to check... More

Here's the good news: good location at the end of Copacabana beach closest to Ipanema so it is easy to walk along either. Secondly, the concierge staff and the front desk staff seemed to be quite pleasant (the problems I encountered were not their fault). The room and bed were comfortable enough and the wifi connection was quite good and... More

The positives of this hotel are that it is in a fabulous location;, the views from balcony are amazing; the staff are really great especially the concierge and the front doormen; the on site restaurant is good and decently priced; and there are beach chairs on copacabana beach. The negative is that our room had a very strong odor, I... More

A wonderful place to hold a convention. The Boatd Room netting room was stunning (but one can close the shades if participants are Dewan more to view than to business at hand). Latest in meeting technology (we use Go To Meeting on someone's lap top and there were images projected all over room). Convention services folks were very helpful. Hotel... More
