Rio de Janeiro tends to be hot and muggy so you depend on your air conditioning to stay cool. The unit in our smallish room tried real hard judging by the racket it made but it just could not do the job of adequate cooling. Combined with an uncomfortable bed made for fitful sleep. Otherwise all is well at this... More

We stayed four nights. We had wifi in our clean and comfortable room. The decor was a bit dated but the beds were comfortable . A generous breakfast sustained us through the day, and the beach and any number of restaurants were within 3 or 4 blocks.

This is a good hotel to stay in terms of price/value. The rooms are narrow but cozy, with a nice bathroom, which has, a glassed in shower, and a baday. For site seers, the hotel provides connection to a tour bus service, which takes passengers through the city's attractions and sites, such as, Maracana Stadium, and Cristo Renator. The bus... More

I want to commend the staff for their wonderful service and generosity. The reception saw that I was being harassed by a stranger on the street, and they called the police and let me stay in the lobby until the man was apprehended. Kind, thoughtful, and devoted service from a superb staff. Obrigado!

Good location, although for the same price or cheaper you can find something closer to the beach (we also stayed at the Canada hotel, closer to the beach, cheaper... see comments for this hotel). Good breakfast (depending on the hour, you have to wait for a table) and nice staff. Internet is free but bad reception on our bedroom, only... More

Hotel was within walking distance from Copacabana beach and the staff were helpful in giving us food recommendations. They also held our bags for us for the day after checkout so that we could enjoy our last day without worrying about our stuff. Breakfast buffet was the highlight of the hotel for us. The room was small, but that made... More
