Best possible view in Rio of the ocean and the hills... Sunrise is to die for. Amazing french staff (and the chef cooks personalized meals - absolutely dreamy). Love it that rooms do not have TVs, which is perfect for romance. Do not miss breakfast outdoors or by the pool. Rooms have unique and beautiful decors. Not the best location... More

We went for the night to see the Elton John concert. The staff were beyond attentive. From the time of the booking, to arranging the transfers and assisting with the car/driver to take us to and from the concert.... we couldn't have asked for more. We arrive mid week / mid afternoon..... traffic from SDU is not ideal but its... More

Two couples of us stayed here and loved it. You're high up with magnificent views while you're having breakfast. One evening we had their chef do dinner for us which was wonderful. A lot of work went into the property which is beautiful. A wonderful hidden beach is about a 15 minute walk away. Not inexpensive but a good value... More

Depends on what you are after...Rio is not famous for it's design hotels & La Suite is on Mr&Mrs Smith, you automatically assume it is something special. And it is, to a certain extend. Hotel is ideal if you want to be away from the hassle & bustle of Ipanema / Copa but still be by the sea. You are... More

The views from this hotel are amazing and definitely the main reason for visiting! Also loved the decoration and had delicious meals. We stayed on a 50% off deal and it was definitely good value, at full price I would have expected a lot though!

The whole hotel is very beautiful with unique decor and special treatment team. Very spacious and comfortable, with a breathtaking view. Only the restaurant service lacking. The dishes are not well prepared and their prices do not match what is offered.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The city of Rio de Janeiro has its secrets and attractions. Very exclusive, cool and chic, La Suite is the perfect place to spend days of pleasure in great company. Interesting people from all over the world meets at La Suite. Located in the exclusive residential area of Joatinga, La Suite is a modernly designed house, which impresses from the very moment when arriving with its 180° view overlooking the “Cidade Maravilhosa”: the ocean, the São Conrado beach, the mountain of Gávea, the Christ Redeemer and the Cagarras Islands, all make the view from La Suite a very unique place.While modern and minimalist outside, the inside of La Suite is an exuberant mix of antique furniture and contemporary objects, the keyword for the charming and elegant atmosphere. ... more   less
