This was a really nice hotel directly at the copacobana with view to the corcovado. The roof top pool is small and has about 10 lounge seats. Service is a bit slow but very friendly. Breakfast buffet is extensive with changing fresh fruit selection. Unfortunately no fresh omlette station. Housekeeping could be a bit more thourough as we brought in... More

We stayed during the Carnival week. Of course, because of that the price was high. Nevertheless, I think our experience with the hotel and the city during that festive time was worth it. We had a suite facing Copacabana and saw some beautiful sunrises. One cannot think of a better location in Rio. The hotel is next door to Copacabana... More

The Hotel is perfect for médium budgets. Good amenities, good staff and excellent location. Understaffed is the only issue but we went just after the carnival. The location is just a few meters from copacabana palace so very well centered. You can go to the beach or shop nearby. The rooftop is fabulous.

The hotel has a great location at Copacabana beach, two steps from the sea! I've been traveling a lot in the past years and I can say that this hotel has the greatest breakfast ever! I would definitely recommend this hotel, that is FAR BETTER THAN OTHON PALACE, which is (in theory) a 5 stars....

We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights end of Jan-Feb, our first stop in Brazil. The hotel has a prime location, right on the Copacabana Beach, It was nice to goto the beach each morning, as the hotel provides with free beach chairs, umbrellas and towels. The location makes it easy to get to everywhere. The bus stop is... More

We stayed for 3 nights in early February and I have to agree with the reviews which fall under very good category. The room was very comfortable although the one issue I would have was the air conditioning which was pretty poor. The breakfast spread was by far the best we had on our travels. Great position for the beaches... More

We stayed a short first night in Brazil at this very well appointed hotel before heading south of Rio. We received a warm welcome. We couldn't avail ourselves of all on offer but the room was very comfortable, the bed excellent and we were very happy with everything.

We stayed 4 nights this January. An excellent experience with the invaluable Ocean view from the 9th floor looking into Copacabana Beach. Breakfast was excellent and the service was excellent as well. One disturbing factor was that the bathroom toilet was not functioning properly and only a "first aid" service was given and the trouble reappeared.

Great location right next to Copacabana Beach. Compact bedroom with big, comfortable bed, kettle and tea/coffee making facilities, and very powerful shower. Good selection of food on the breakfast buffet, but slightly spoilt by the ‘hot’ food which on two out of three mornings was distinctly cool. The hotel has its own beach service with beds, umbrella and beach towels,... More
