I would agree with many of the other reviews in that the location of the hotel was great, but the hotel itself is not as nice, especially for the price. However, we booked it expecting just that - we wanted a feel of Leblon and Ipanema beach and this seemed to be one of the better options. We stayed in... More

Pros: location, good breakfest, nice people, comfortable bed, free and satisfactory wi-fi. Cons: all other stuff: old rooms, amateur service and ambience, no sound insulation, elevators not working well, dirty toilet upon arrival.

First room 21st floor (2101) overlooking beach - Great view. Room reasonable size and relatively modernernised (Adjustable aircon - very loud). Problem came with heavy weather (very strong wind & rain) _ approx 9pm.... More

We stayed at the Marina Palace Hotel for 6 nights on our stay in Rio. This hotel is in a fantastic location and right opposite the Lebron beach, which give you free sun beds and towels if you are staying at the hotel. On arrival we were given a room on the 11th floor which was shockingly old fashioned and... More

We originally made reservation for this hotel thinking at close to $500 a night it would be fine. The only positive 2-stars this hotel has received from me is because the staff was just friendly and helpful. We got there and were shocked by how this hotel was kept, our room was dirty, with hair and mold and dirty carpets.... More

I was in the Hotel only for one night - my company chose this one because of its location, which is good (you have many restaurants in the neighborhood and it is right in front of the beach) – but what I went through it was enough for a week. The room was dated, the air-con had only one temperature... More

Great location in Leblon right by the beach. Many of the rooms have great views and the hotel is clean and comfortable. The hotel is not new but it's clean and gets the job done. It's well priced for the area, though I believe I got a very good promotional rate last minute. The staff was courteous and professional. Breakfast... More

I have stayed at the Marina Palace hotel and had excellent experiences in the past. This time it could not be more disappointing. The apartment at the 11th floor is at best a 2 stars (though charged at. 5 star price).
