The hotel is in a wonderful location right in front of Leblon beach, but the rooms are too old and the bathroom of the room is very bad! Staff is friendly, although they are not helpful at all. Also the breakfast is average.

This hotel was an icon in the Leblon area - in the 1980's! Many rooms are in urgent need of renovations. The a/c system is ancient: there is only a on/off switch. (at least it worked better than I expected). I understand some rooms have been upgraded - alas, not mine. At least I have a nice (partial) view of... More

good location of the hotel, safe area, in front of the beach. The hotel is nice. Point of improvement is the service, especially bad experience in the reception, the restaurant and the accommodation in the room ( there were missing towels and the baby bed was missing). Probably next time we won't go to this hotel, we will try other... More

Besides being just a few steps from the beach. you are 5 minutes walking for nice Shopping centers (Shopping Leblon or Rio Design), and in the Ataulfo de Paiva Street you can get all the nice shops and you can see the real life of the " Cariocas...

Being Australian, we always look on the bright side of life, this Hotel has it all and should be a 5 star except for dirty windows spoiling the view, 4 times in 6 days we had to trek back down to reception to get our room key / card re issued as it didn't work...

Staff is friendly. Beds are good. Bad wifi coverage in the room. Aircon is way too noisy and not very efficient. Breakfast is ok though. A Ibis in europe is better....very pricey for what it is. So if you are om a business trip, avoid....

The night I arrive I really did not get to see much as I was exhausted but noticed the fast friendly service at the entrance. The Bell man took our car keys and conveniently parked right across the street from the hotel.

The location is amazing, really really good. The bed is huge!!! And the breakfast is amazing, but could have more brazilian dishes. The facilities are a bit old, you can notice by the carpets in the floors. It is an expensive hotel. The gym is only a running machine and a bike. THE WIFI IS R$40 PER DAY!!!!!

Nice hotel in Leblon, with great access to the beach, shopping, & restaurants. Only stayed one night, but the room was very clean (great water pressure FYI). No free wifi in rooms however (only in the lobby).

Stayed 5 nights. Excellent staff. Room perfect for my requirements. Great view of the beach and very comfortable bed. Fabulous location very near to shops and excellent restaurants. Loved being able to walk out front door and be right on the beach. Very good restaurant particularly breakfast.
