This hotel is a five / ten minute walk from Copacabana beach and also shops, banks and restaurants and also the main bus route So in a good location. The staff I met were all very friendly. The communal areas were nice and the included breakfast was a really good selection of food. My room was a bit dated but... More

This place is outdated as others have said. The rooms are a little funky. But they'd let me move to a different room when I felt that mine was a little too dark and the second room, 11th floor, was better and still had a broken window and, there was a party across the alley that's went until 3am.

A couple of streets of Copacabana (a crowded beach!!!) and a ten-fifteen minute walk from the nearest metro station, the location is decent. Wifi (you have to log in every time) is free and the breakfast spread is decent. Rooms are large and comfortable though the hotel itself seems slightly old. Overall, not a bad place to stay in expensive... More

Good points: large beds and fairly close to Copacabana beach, not close enough for the price Bad points: terrible staff manners, completely unwilling to help in reception (young girl in particular, everything is a burden in helping with anything); woken at 7 am by building works in the same building and breakfast room got very crowded very soon after -...

This place is very expensive for what it is. The lifts are extremely slow and only one works. I have found the hotel key cards need re activating everyday as they seem to expire- this is quite irritating especially when the hotel staff are quite slow. It is in an ok location. But for what you pay you could pick... More

I stayed here for one night as it where my G Adventures tour finished. The room that I had was average, nothing too exciting but the bathroom was a good size and so was the bedroom. Wifi worked really fast for me which was great. Location was good, it's just a short walk to Copacabana Beach and there is a... More

Stayed here for 4 nights, 1 night as part of a G adventures tour and the other 3 myself. The good things are the location- it's a handy spot near the beach in Copacabana. It's 2 streets back and only a short walk. There are lots of shops, restaurants, cafes etc near the hotel. Another good thing was our room.... More

We stayed here with our Gadventures group and were pleasantly surprised after reading some of the bad reviews. The room was spacious and clean. Furnishings were a little dated, but we didn't see that as any type of issue. There was a lot of selection at breakfast and the hotel was only a few blocks from the beach. Happy with... More
