“Not worth its price. Less than average”
I stayed 4 days for the New Year and paid 5.900€ for 2 rooms.
The only good thing about this hotel is the location on the Copacabana beach which is great.
Everything else is bad. The rooms are dated and with a very low ceiling on some parts of the room, the windows are dirty and can't open so you can have a dirty sea view, the bathrooms need to be redone, the is no swimming pool and no gym, the bar is depressing, the breakfast is cheap and they squeeze lots of tables you in a large room without windows (on the brochure they show the tables in the room with a view), the free Internet in the lobby does not work most of the time, the staff is very nice but they don't have answers to your questions
To be honest, I think that their best skill is the TripAdvisor ranking management for which they answer if you do a positive or negative review and they also probably do some kind of magic to get such a good (and misleading) ranking.
Anyway, Rio is such a fantastic place that you don't spend much time in the hotel.
Chose a room in another hotel :-)
