5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

I stayed there during my Rock in Rio time. Service and breakfast were really good. When I needed a cab to go to the airport and there were non available on the phone, they went out of their way to get me one from the street!

Stayed September 2013, traveled with friends

3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Stayed here for a week in early October for a business conference nearby. Was quite nervous given some other reviews but was really very pleased to say that I had a great experience at the hotel.
The wifi connection was far stronger than I anticipated, and it sounds as if it was better than at two other nearby hotels my colleagues stayed at (so took pleasure in that fact!)
Breakfast buffet was as expected, a nice selection of options. Couldn't complain.
The room was a very good size, clean and comfortable.
Location of the hotel was great for my needs, and only a 5 minute walk to the beach. Also had a nice little park just outside which I used jogged around each morning!
The reception staff were very helpful, the ones who spoke english obviously more helpful for me than the others!
All in all, had an enjoyable week's stay at a reasonable price (although it was inflated due to the conference) and would consider staying there again. Don't be put off by the bad reviews!

From my point of view is a very expensive hotel when you compare the rate against the service and quality of the room.
