My husband and i stayed here for 3 nights. Friendly staff with helpful suggestions, clean and spacious rooms, very good breakfast spread. We managed to get a room on the top floor near the pool, it faces the side of the hotel with partial views of Copacabana beach and Christ the redeemer. Very good location, directly on Copacabana, 5 mins walk down from the copacabana palace, relatively safe. Lots of touristy cafes and restaurants along the beach front and smaller souvenir shops, havaianas & supermarket 10-15 mins walking distance. The metro is also approx 10-15 mins walk away. Free wifi at the lobby and the pool terrace on the top floor. no complains except its expensive but that applies to all hotels in Rio.
