Three or four blocks from the sea, the hotel is located near the subway. As a business man I really enjoy taking the subway to the city center. Is safe and realiable. The hotel has a fair price quality ratio. My room as spacious, the bathroom a bit old. It was clean and the staff was nice. Breakfast is quite... More

So, we stayed in here for 3.5 weeks (Long time). During this time, we got to know the hotel pretty well and also got to know the staff pretty well. I will try my best to give you as much detail as possible. Location Amazing. Close to shops, the metro and the beach as well as supermarkets, coffee shops and... More

We stayed here over New Year and its very conveniently located if you want to spend New Year on the beach. The breakfast was good and plentiful. They made a few changes everyday. The first day our room was very clean, but during the week, we could feel the beach sand on the floor. The bathroom was was a good... More

I stayed at the Royal Rio Palace Hotel during the football world cup - it was a very pleasant escape from the manic streets and beaches of Rio. The rooftop pool and bar were definitely the crowning factor for this hotel. The staff were polite, the breakfast was good, and the rooms were clean, if not a little tired.

Just spent a night there. Hotel a block or two from the beach. At the very end of Copacabana Beach. Great pool and nice breakfast. Nothing amazing about the room, purely average. The staff at the reception are not friendly but rather rude. Good value for the money!

Ok situated hotel, rather cheap place near the Copcabana. Cleanliness is average, and not so good a restaurant. Swimming pool on top of the building, but with ony 6 sunbeds, be early if you want one. If you go for the bar in the evening, be patient! You have to ask for the waitor, barkeeper. He will come eventually.

I stayed here during a December vacation. The hotel has nice room and it's clean with free wifi. The location of the hotel is great as it is very near copacabana beach. The hotel has a lovely roof top pool area but it is too small for the amount of people who stay in the hotel. Breakfast was average and... More

I can't believe all the good reviews this hotel has in trip advisor. That is one of the reasons why we chose it but I was terribly disappointed. This is not a luxury hotel by any means. The room was not clean, the a/c was very noisy and the breakfast was mediocre at best. Worse of all, while I was... More
