I stayed in this hotel for almost 2 weeks, the room was ok, and the staff friendly and helpful. The hotel might be in need of a slight facelift, but the location at Avenida Atlantica is good, you just have to cross the road to get to Copacabana beach, and the view from the breakfast room is superb.

I stayed in this hotel way back in 2003. It is an old, un-spectacular hotel but, considering it's position on Av. Atlantica on Copacabana beach, it is good value. Rooms are nothing special but spacious. The breakfast on the top floor is a highlight.

Been here sometime ago, location is excellent as it is right by the Copacabana beach. Rooms are spacious however a bit old and run down. The rooftop restaurant is good for breakfast and panoramic views. All in all, they have good potential but they need to pay more attention to customer service and comfort otherwise they won't survive.

Hotel Debret is the worst hotel I have ever stayed at. The only positive is the location on copacabana beach. It was a total rip off because of the World Cup. While the room was clean and tidy, the beds and pillows were uncomfortable and the service was very poor. I would not recommend this hotel under any circumstances.

There is no possible way this is a three star hotel. Run down premises, old beds, with mold in the showers, worn down towels. There is no feasible way that this hotel can be a three star hotel. I feel ripped off. Say there is wifi... lie.. at most a 128 kbps for the whole hotel (when available).

this hotel is right in front of copacabana beach, with a window view of waterfront from dinning room for breakfast on the 11th floor. staffs are nice,facility is old tho. But it could be a value of money among all the expensive hotels along the beach area.

The location is great just in front of copacabana beach you can reach ipanema in 15 min walking, lots of amenities and safe environment. I loved the location there is also a tube station few minutes waking so you can reach easily other places in Rio. Cidade maravilhosa!

by the end of October 2013 my friend and I decided to go to Rio, and we found this hotel, surprisingly, it was in the best location along Copacabana, and the more surprising thing was we had missing items in our room! You get what you pay for in this hotel, definitely not worth trying for in Rio, enough said
