First time I stayed at this hotel was in September 2012 and we liked it so much that we decided to stay here again in October 2014. I wish I wrote a review two years ago, becouse I love writing positive reviews and spreading the good word. Unfortunately, my experience been a let down this time around. What haven't changed...

I spent a week at this hotel in November 2014. This is a very nice and professionally run boutique hotel. The rooms are clean and very nice. The location is great with the beach only two blocks away and tons of restaurants, bars and shops at your doorstep. I would gladly stay here again. The breakfast at the restaurant provides... More

Nice small hotel 100m from the Ipanema beach in sunny Rio. Close to the strip and some good restaurants and a great opportunity to walk on the beach. The hotel was adequate and the room I had was ok. The bathroom needed

I paid US$487 for 2 nights. Perhaps it was pricey considering that when you see the hotel outside, it was rusty. I thought the hotel is in front of the beach which is not. I can see from afar about 5-6 miles the beach on the left side of my window. Then, on the right side of the window, I... More

This hotel is located 30 seconds from the Ipanema beach front, and has some good quality bedrooms. The staff are really helpful and always polite. It is clean and close to shopping in a very safe area. Definitely worth visit.

Felt very safe in this nice area. Lots of shops on your doorstep and plenty of restaurants near by. Room was just about big enough, not much of a view. Good bathroom and cleaned regularly. Plenty of choice for breakfast and restaurant was handy if you don't want to walk far. A stones throw from the beach and our right... More

Confortable, clean, good service, excellent location and decent prices for Ipanema. 2 blocks away from the beach. My only criticism is that the receptionists understands very little of other languages (english, spanish, etc.) for a hotel located in a very turistic area.

I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights earlier this week and I would highly recommend it. I had looked at a few different hotels in the Ipanema area and ideally would have liked to be on the beach, but actually this hotel is perfectly situated just 2 blocks back. I had a 10th floor room and the view was... More

central, good price, clean, not the best service, It was my first time in Rio, but good for the price. In front of the beach, easy access to public transportation and restaurants, I enjoyed my time there.

I quite liked this hotel. Good food, good bar and good service. Downside is the lack of a parking lot of the hotel itself. But is close to the beach and is very pleasant. It is clean and the room service works well. I intend to return soon.
