You can order a pot of tea and sit around the pool to enjoy it even if you are not staying there! Lovely hotel with an understated elegance. The staff is so friendly and professional. The hotel is centrally located near public transport and the beach (of course).

The hotel is a couple of blocks away from the beach, in front of bus stops that can take you anywhere in the city, it's surrounded by restaurants and bars that are open until late. The staff is really helpful, and though they sell tours, they help you with any query you may have. The breakfast has a lot of... More

Very functional business-oriented hotel, but only 3 short blocks to Copacabana Beach. There were some indications that there is prostitution in the area (Sex Shop on next block and sign in lobby about sex trafficking), but I didn’t see any obvious prostitutes right around the hotel, even late at night. On Sundays (at least), there is a farmers market at... More

Check-in: a little bit bureaucratic, but I guess that's Brazil for you, as we had the same in every hotel. Location: Amazing, right in the heart of Copacabana, local market on the opposite side of the road every Saturday, subway close by, beach a stone throw away. Rooms: Nice and spacious, a bit dated, but very clean. Breakfast: Top notch,... More

Stayed at the Mar Palace in October. Very handy for Copacobana beach. Surrounded by restaurants of all types. The place itself was a little dated but nevertheless was spotlessly clean, serviced everyday and staff very helpfull and knowledgeable. Breakfast was excellent. Pool a little on the small side. Booked all our trips via the hotel and were pleased with the... More

Hotel is located a few blocks from Copacabana beach in one direction and the Rio in the other direction. So an easy locale to get around from. Breakfast was excellent in the dining hall off the lobby. But the whole place as a dreary aged feel to it. Facade, lobby, and rooms seem like they're a generation or two too... More

This hotel is located along the Avenida Nossa Senhora, in the middle of Copacabana action. Professional staff able to answer pretty much every question asked. Rooms are more like 3 star than 4. Rooms cleaned daily. Good basic breakfast. The roof top terrace was nice, though the pool was quite small. The gym needs some updating. All in all, the... More

Stayed 2 nights for a visit in Rio. Hotel was clean, location was good considering the cost of beach hotels, 2 blocks back. Quiet, Our room viewed Christ the Redeemer. A couple minutes away from the tram to the top. Also, it was a quick trip to Sugar Loaf too. The room is pretty Spartan. Pool was as previously described... More

I stayed in this hotel on a business trip from 8th - 13th September 2014. I cannot believe that the reviews on here are so good, because I am still in shock from my stay. I had a tired room with one large bed, the room had one window that faced an internal shaft, so there was no light at... More
