This hotel was very central for our stay, one block from Sterns and two blocks from the beach with no busy and wide roads to cross, unlike Copacabana. The staff were attentive, rooms clean, water for showers ample and bed comfortable. The Devassa restaurant just next door supplies breakfast (buffet style) and their evening meals were plentiful, we had fillet... More

We’ve stayed for 10 nights. Superior Double. Our Room was fairly small and not necessarily 4 * on first sight, but knowing the Rio standards bit more now, have to say I was quite happy to be staying at this hotel. The location is just the best, felt right at home, many good restaurants, bars, shops in the neighborhood. Just... More

The staff was helpful. The hotel structure is great (except it doesn't have a swimming pool and the breakfast is in the restaurant Devassa, also open to the outside public). The rooms + bathrooms were recently remodeled. The hotel location is really nice.

This hotel is well located in Ipanema, two blocs from the beach and near everything you might need for a week in Rio. Is a little bit far from downtown and many attractions but is nearby very atractive bars, lounges, restaurants and nightclubs - the hotel restaurant is a renowed local beer house (Devassa). The room is small, air conditioning... More
