This hotel is located only 200m away from Copacabana. Perfect place to stay during a Rio holiday. But: The management is reluctant to think about required changes: the breakfast room is totally stuck in the morning; sometimes you need to wait 15 minutes to get a table. It's incredibly loud and the staff works like hell to get the crowd... More

I stayed at this property here for 7 nights during Carnival. What I love most about this hotel was its location. It was about 2 blocks from Copacabana Beach, shopping areas, and metro station. You are located between 2 very busy Rua's so food isn't a problem. Hotel does offer breakfast which was very good, and Room service also. The... More

We stayed at this hotel for a week during Carnival. It is just a few hundred yards away from Copacabana Beach and very close to a Metro station so it's easy to get into town. Taxis aren't very expensive either if you don't want to use public transport. The hotel rooms are standard layout with a comfortable bed and decent... More

We went to Rio for Carnival, probably the busiest time of year there. (Carnival = fantastic fun & Joy) the hotel must have been full, because we never could get internet on the 11th floor and had trouble with hot water once or twice. It was a very basic hotel. Underwhelming with no charm. We found the hotel almost OK.... More

Stayed here for 1 night before joining a cruise ship. Hotel is convenient for Copa Cabana beach... just one block back from the beach. Upper floors have a view of the sea. The roof top pool is small but a nice outside space for sunbathing. Room was comfortable with a nice walk in shower in the bathroom. Breakfast had a... More

We were on a package deal (flights + 2 city centres) booked form the UK and were SO lucky to get this hotel. It's not a chi-chi modern boutique hotel, it's a large, busy city hotel. Our room was large with plenty of storage space and a bathroom with bath/shower and bidet! It's a bit old fashioned as others have... More

this is a convenient hotel in Copacabana. Easy to get around. Close to touristic activities, restaurants and transportation. the room and decoration feels a bit old and out of style. The room is pretty clean.
