This hotel is pretty nice for South America, but average for US standards. The people at the front desk were VERY helpful. The hotel is a walking distance away from Copacabana. Although on one extreme side of Copacabana. It's not a friendly walk to get to Ipanema, which is a must. A few hotels I've stayed at that are actually... More

I highly recommend this hotel to anyone. Great location to the beach and affordable without sacrificing comfort and luxury. Pedro speaks English, too. He will have others help you when he is not there. Love it. Highly recommend it.

Good location, comfortable beds and big rooms (for price). I stayed at 4th floor facing avenue - no problem with loudness. Restaurant could be better. They should open day/night bar. They don't have rooms for smokers................ :-(

Stayed there with a group on an organized tour for 4 nights. Walking distance to Copacabana beach, a night market and some nice restaurants. The elevators' service is slow. Basic but clean and comfortable.

The hotel is really horrible. Don't get fooled by the lobby (small but decent). My room was rely ugly, with furniture from the 70's more of a highway motel rather than a hotel. Unfortunatly the price does not reflect this. They are charging for a 5 star hotel I would not recommend it to my worst enemy. Avoid it.

This hotel is in a great location, 5 minutes walk to Copacabana beach, a beautiful beach. As with any city you need to be cautious, obvious show of wealth to be avoided, the tunnel beside the hotel leads to a shopping centre, walking through the tunnel is not recommended unless the police car is sitting there at the entrance to...

Tucked a few blocks back from the beach, the hotel provides all the comforts needed for a good break. All staff encountered were helpful and easy to deal with. Rooms were adequate but, lacking in the number of power outlets. The buffet meals were above average.
