We stayed here for 3 nights at the end of our traveling in South America. We had passed through Rio for one night earlier in trip and stayed at the Hotel Othon Palace that night and this is definitely a nicer option ( as smaller and more boutique like) The things we liked about the hotel: - great location.

This was the fourth time I've stayed in this hotel, and am always drawn back by the pricey but wonderful ocean-facing rooms that feature verandas looking out over the Copacabana beach. They are simple and nicely appointed rooms and the view is amazing. Unfortunately, staff is impersonal and seems to care little about the comfort of guests. This time, I... More

We spent four nights at this hotel and enjoyed our stay here. The location is excellent and the views stunning. The views from the restaurant where we ate breakfast, have a complete WOW factor. Fabulous views along Copacabana Beach in both directions. There are also stunning views from the rooftop pool, including the view to Corcovado Hill. The breakfast was... More

This hotel is a great place to stay and pretty good value to boot. Located across the road from Copacabana beach, the hotel is centrally located with easy access to most part of Rio, on foot, by metro, or through the very reasonable taxi network. Breakfast is good value for money, and a rooftop pool and bar are very welcome... More

A beautiful location on Copacabana beach. The initial room offered was quite poor, small, single bed and next to the elevator, however once I upgraded to a sea view corner room the extra dollars were well spent. The room comfort was fine, small bathroom where you had to literally step over the toilet to enter the shower, but again the... More

Fantastic position across the road from the beach. Comfortable rooms, and friendly staff. Possibly the best breakfast I had in my travels around South America. Includes champagne if you are so inclined at that hour of the day. Lovely roof top pool area. Would recommend this hotel.

I really wanted to share my experience at this hotel. When i looked at the website and read the reviews this hotel looked great but could be better. Room Small - the hotel clearly states the room size and it was OK for us as were only staying 3 nights. We booked a room which included wifi and we had... More

We stayed here for two nights during Carnival 2015. Rio is notoriously dangerous-street crime rampant, even in the middle of the day! That said, we still definitely recommend going to Rio to see Carnival, as it was an experience of a lifetime! We would book this hotel again and again keep a guide by our side at all times. Porto...

We were originally very excited to stop here having seen the location of the hotel, which is excellent on Copacobana beach Communal areas of hotel are very nice, reception, Sky bar etc.... HOWEVER the rooms (we were on 12th floor) are very worn/shabby. The bathroom was very worn and tired and the room itself was grubby and more akin to... More
