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

Excellent service, clean and comfortable rooms, very good breakfast. One block from the famous copacabana beach... Rio de Janeiro is never a cheap place to be, So this is for sure a good deal when it comes to cost effectiveness

Is not noisy after you shut the door of your room, the room is big, the toilet is ok, the shower is excellent, breakfast is ok, and the location is excellent. In Rio by the way, everything is quite near and is easy to get anywhere by bus or metro system.

The Mar Palace was clean, and conveniently located a couple of blocks from the Copacabana beach. We had no issues checking in around noon. It had a nice breakfast buffet, with scambled eggs, meats, cheese, fruits and lots of breads. Front Desk staff spoke english and were very helpful. We had a large room with 3 twin beds. Our view...
