Excelent location but hotel is totally run down. Terrible smell all over. Humidity stains in hallways. This hotel was once very nice. Needs an urgent remodelling. Excelente shopping and restaurants in the neighbourhood.

We contacted the hotel weeks before our arrival, asking for the cost of an airport pick up arrangement and ended up taking a cab because we never got answer. Before leaving for our holiday we read many bad reviews about the condition of the rooms and because we were gonna stay for 7 nights at the Marina Palace, we asked... More

I went to the Marina Palace to run a seminar. I strongly recommend the conference room located on the 26th floor. The view is breathtaking and inspiring. Banqueting personnel do their best to accommodate you. A good place to go. Airco works well. Bedrooms are disappointing: As usual in Rio, you share your privacy with people walking in the corridors... More

I stayed at the Hotel Marina Palace from December 28-30, 2014. The location of the hotel was convenient to shopping and Ipanema Beach, and is one of many older hotels in the Ipanema Beach area, and had a small, rather slow elevator, but it was acceptable. My room was clean and had a nice view of the beach and mountains... More

The hotel, which is being renovated, is situated right on the beach in safe and upmarket Leblon. Check in took ages, but we managed to get a room on the 17th floor overlooking Christ the Redeemer and the beach. Breakfast was superb and we were spoilt with choice. It was served in a modern restaurant facing the ocean. The only... More

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
