Good location, room was clean and functional although the air conditioning unit was like having a helicopter land in your room. Too noisy to use at night. The included breakfast was standard hotel fare. The staff, while not being rude, didn't go out of their way to be friendly.

I chose this hotel because of the price, but the old adage "you get what you pay for" is clear in this scenario. My wife and I wanted to stay in Copacabana because of the great beach, central location to everything, and pretty much because of the name. We arrived early at the hotel and they allowed us to check... More

I stayed at majestic rio for 3 days and 2 nights and have only positive feedback. The staff was very welcoming and friendly. They did everything they could to accommodate us. We arrived way earlier then expected and they let us store our luggage until our room was ready. They made it possible for us to check in earlier then... More

We stayed here for Carnaval. It is about 10 min to the beach and 5 min walk to a metro station, so ideally located for our stay. A nice small pool area which wasn't overcrowded. Breakfast was good and staff very friendly. They booked taxis which were about double the price of a metered taxi but saved the hassle of... More

We had a great stay at this hotel in July 2014. The hotel is in a good location - 10 minutes walk to Copaocabana beach and 5 minutes from a metro. The staff were really friendly and helpful. The room was basic but good enough, with an all important safe. Best of all was the breakfast - huge choice and... More

Average hotel only 3 blocks from Copacabana. Quite street. We asked for an upgrade and stayed in a suite with sauna, though the room wasn't that big. There were 2 of us and they brought an extra bed. Reception staff was friendly, especially a lady. It was a good option during the FIFA world cup. Breakfast was actually very good... More

The hotel is in a nice residential area a few blocks off the beach. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The room was clean and adequate. The breakfast was very good with a large selection of hot and cold foods. I would stay again at this hotel my next time in Rio.

Overall rooms are fairly basic and the breakfast won't impress you, but friendly and helpful staff and a great location will make up for it (few blocks away from the beach and the metro). The wifi is a bit sketchy in the rooms (only works in reception).

I stayed here during World Cup in June 2014. I found the location to be great; in Copacabana but about 4 blocks off of Avenida Atlantica. You are close to the beach but can retreat away from the business of it all when you go back to the hotel. Also, there are two metro stations within a 3 block walk,... More

We stayed in this hotel during the World Cup 2014. The hotel is a good location just about 4 blocks from Copacabana beach. We felt very save walking from the hotel to the beach everyday and there are small markets and places to eat within walking distance of the hotel. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The air conditioning is... More
