4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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.

A small hotel in the heart of Ipanema. Receiving an upgrade upon arrival never is a great start to any stay. The room my friend an I received was a two bedroom suite and quite nice. The room was simple but modern. The staff were very helpful and the bar next door served as the hotel restaurant. The location was... More

Lying just 2 blocks away from the number 10 life guard post of Ipanema beach this is a comfortable and very convenient location. Local shops with everything you need and walking distance to some very good restaurants. Room has everything you need but small compared to other hotels in Rio at higher price bracket.

This hotel was perfect for our stay in Rio. Close to all the action of beautiful Ipanema and only two blocks from the beach. Loved the roof top bar where we watched several sunsets and saw Christ the Redeemer off in the distance. The breakfast buffet was huge! Great selection. Very helpful staff on the front desk too.

We only stayed 3 nights and eventually moved to the Everest Rio Hotel. The room was just too small for a couple. The air conditioner was a split-type but the compressor was on the wall right next to the bed so it woke me up every time the compressor kicked in. The hotel does have a nice, private roof deck...
