The service was very good. The front desk staff was amazing. The food was good too. Everything was great except our room. It was old and in desperate need of renovation. Ocean view room is recommended (distracts from the room)! Then again, we were only in our room to sleep so for us it was OK.

We booked a luxury double room with balcony for a few nights at the start of the World Cup . What a superb location this hotel is in. We overlooked the fifa fanfest where we watched Brazils opening game with 100,000 others, an experience I will never forget. The view from the balcony was unbelievable, especially at 6am when the...

I stayed here for a week during the World Cup and had a blast. The room was nice and big enough for my friend and I. Renato and Rodrigo in particular were very helpful at the front desk and the workers were friendly. I lucked out in that they spoke English at the hotel since my Portuguese is limited and... More

This is not the flashiest hotel in Rio. The rooms are a little tired, but you're in prime Copacabana position, a room with a balcony overlooking the beach is quite inexpensive, the staff are great, and the breakfast is wonderful. It's a really nice hotel and I would definitely stay here again.

Right. Let's get one thing straight. The hotel is dated. In it's hay day, this would have been THE spot. Fast forward a few years and it could use some TLC. The front desk looks shabby despite the high ceilings in the dining area, the rest of the hotel smells a bit old. Check-in was a smooth process, we arrived... More

We were given a room at the back, overlooking a court yard (noise from fan) Although room was big the bathroom had mold growing in every corner!! The only good things is the location, facing the ocean and breakfast was excellent. Staff were ok, only few spoke English.
