Room was modern large and very clean and had a view of christ the redeemer. Good wifi in all areas of hotel. Breakfast was good and the location was good. However we were three males and arrived after travelling Peru with backpacks on. The receptionist gave the impression that he either did not expect us to have a reservation or... More

Perhaps we were lucky that we did not have problems during our stay, because we found some apathetic and not quite friendly or unfriendly personnel, that didn't care much about the customers. On one occasion when I was not really asking for help, but simply information their attitude was:we-know-nothing. The room was decent and the location was ok, near Copacabana... More

Average hotel, large room, not much of a view on the back side of the hotel. The rooms in the front might be more interesting in terms of view, but perhaps they are noisy. The walls are thin anyway. The elevators are a disaster. Too small, two (too) few. The air-conditioning is loud. large choice at breakfast. I stayed for... More

When we first arrived we thought it was pretty good, it has a great location very close to Copacabana beach and the rooms were a decent size. The only downsides were the incredibly loud air conditioning and the very creative photography they used to advertise their pool (it really is tiny...). Making you pay for the wifi in the rooms...

Although the rooms were OK, there were extremely loud banging noises on the wall all day until past 10pm. Reception did not do anything about this and almost insinuated we should be patient , not wanting to solve the issue. Never again would I go back to this supposedly 4 star hotel where instead of enjoying a pleasant and peaceful... More

Dear Aline, Sorry for all inconvenience caused by the work carried out in the building next door to the hotel. Unfortunately the laws of Brazil allow the execution of works until 22pm . Soon after your complain on July / 7th at 21:30pm, our manager Mr. Antonio had called the police to force the workmen to stop immediately the noise.... More

The hotel charges what it does because of the location ! One block away from beach and in middle of the market ! .the rooms are below average and the hotel as such feels very ancient ,The propery would bee like built in 70s with no renovation after that !.The break fast spread was amazing !

Stayed here for 4 nights. Good location, 1 block from Copacabana beach, area felt pretty safe. Rooms are decent size and clean, even if a little dated. Bathroom could have been a bit cleaner, but acceptable as far as I was concerned. Breakfast was fair, with a decent selection. Staff were ok, found the ladies to be very nice, however... More
