We arrived at the hotel at midnight to be greeted by the most unhelpful & arrogant man I have ever encountered in 35 years of traveling. He seemed to think it was a sport to be ignorant and rude. It was only this one individual who had such a bad attitude, the rest of the staff where fine. On the... More

People working at the reception don't know how to politely behave. Every time you ask them for something they'll misbehave, always in very bad mood, not caring about customers at all. DO NOT STAY IN THIS HOTEL unless you want to be treated very bad.

Upon arrival, we encountered two representatives of acceptance, a man and a woman. Deceived including exploitative and ruthless. Vamp the fact that we do not understand young tourist and not knowledge. That's why we have high financial costs than expected. To be fair I should point out that we received good service and favorable reception from two other representatives of... More

This hotel was the perfect location for us. It is located on the border of Copacabana and Ipanema. Our room rate for six nights in September 2014 came to R$2816,10 or $1204.60 USD or $200.77 USD per night. We felt this was a great rate given the size of our room, the free in-room wifi, free breakfast buffet, and the... More

This hotel is a reasonably priced (I paid 350 Reals/night for a single) and very well located. It's 5-10 min walk to a nice part of the beach abd also close to the Metro, plenty of banks/cash points, bars, etc. I have felt pretty safe in the neighborhood. My favourite thing about it is the rooftop, which has some tables,... More

We stayed with a grad school group. The location was excellent, the rooms were small, but clean. Wifi was mostly reliable, which was a change from some of the other hotels we stayed at in Rio. Not sure if it was free or not, as it may have been covered by our school. Service was adequate, no complaints, but didn't... More

The hotel is fantastic, I love the rooftop pool, and had an amazing time at the beach. The breakfast was yummy! I really enjoy my 3 day stay at this Hotel! The beaches are within walking distance, and the weather was fantastic!

Although I only stayed there for two nights and could only have breakfast one time. (I had to leave for the airport at 4 am on the last day) I can certainly say this hotel deserves 4 stars. The rooms are amazing, the lobby is welcoming, the rooftop pool real nice. Everything is clean, and the staff can help you... More

It's hard to get across the strangeness of this hotel. For me, it started when I checked in. After showing me around my room, the bellboy asked me if my breasts were silicone. I won't forget that anytime soon. The decor is 1970's masculine, with a lot of maroon. My room has a nice view of a favela with accompanying... More

I got married in June, 2014. The last stop of my honey moon was in Rio de Janeiro, for the FIFA World Cup at Maracana stadium. I payed, for the tickets, 2000 $. Unfortunately, I was already on honeymoon when I received the tickets at home, in Italy. So, my mother shipped the tickets at my hotel in Rio. A... More
