We had to make a quick decision and this was the best hotel choice came up at that moment. The location is great, about 2 blocks from Copacabana beach. The area is surrounded buy little shops and restaurants. The hotel itself is an average hotel, nothing really fancy about the rooms, just plain, no decor or anything special. The bathroom... More

We stayed here for New Years and the hotel is average. I guess they jack all the prices up around this time because it was definitely not worth the astronomical price we paid. The breakfast was very average, wifi came at a charge and there was no atmosphere in the bar or pool top at all (being New Years aswell).... More

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
