The Excelsior is wonderful vaue for the price. Location is superb facing the beach. This is a convenient, clean, comfortable hotel. The included breakfast is excellent in terms of quality & selection for Americans & Europeans. The rooftop is great. The pool is a bit small but fine. The bar is excellent & the view is phenomenal. Hard to beat relaxing with a drink in the evening, watching the ocean to the front & Corcovado looking back to the right. Lots of good restaurants nearby, The Trattoria & Maxim's are right across the street & are excellent. The best part of the hotel is the staff. We had a lot of trouble with our booking agency (Tourico - beware of them!) who failed to make our reservation among other things. The hotel gave us a good room & dealt with our booking agent problem which took all week to resolve. I can't think of a single negative thing to say about our 7 day stay. Will stay there again for sure. Shopping of all sorts is one block away with several banks with 24/7 ATMs although on Saturday & Sunday we could only get Mastercard to work but M-F Visa & Amex worked fine. Lots of police presence & we felt totally safe throughout our stay. Great hotel - you'll love it.
