This hotel has the best location in Rio, great staff and our room was excellent... what more could we ask for? The staff helped us with every step of our trip in Rio, from restaurant recommendations, directions to currency houses to making phone calls on our behalf... perfect staff. The room was clean, quiet and spacious. The location was incredible, we were steps from the beach which really makes a difference. The rooftop bar / view is incredible. We would not hesitate to return to this hotel when / if we return to Rio, there would be no other choice for us it was that good. The breakfast was only average in our opinion so beware, but that isn't too important to us.
