This hotel is in the perfect location for the New Year's Eve celebration since it is centrally located on Copacabana beach right in front of the fireworks and the main show stage. The rooftop pool/bar area has the best view of Copacabana beach, Sugarloaf and other favellas far out in the distance. You could sit there for hours staring out in the distance, and despite being there during the New Years Eve time, it was never really crowded or even full. Rooms are newly renovated and side facing rooms have partial ocean views and a small balcony (good for hanging dry swimsuits). Beds are super comfortable with fluffy comforters and pillows, but instead of a full size bed they gave us a room with two single beds that were pushed together. We used the laundry service which was expensive (about US$5 per item) but same day service. The downside was their rather sad looking fitness center (no free weights, one treadmill, and 2-3 other weight machines) and a lackluster restaurant. The included breakfast buffet was actually very good with good variety (including omelette made to order), but at other times the restaurant barely had any customers and wait staff not very attentive and half the menu was not available. That's not a problem though, because right next door is this great Mondego restaurant that was good at all hours of the day. Right behind the hotel is a series of popular bars and some great juice bars. With all the tourists there for New Years we felt very safe, but can't comment on how it would be with fewer foot traffic.
