The first impression was not impressive. The hotel lobby can do much better with the space by replacing those very cheap 3rd hand looking furniture, and a bit of green plants. The check in guy (an elder guy with grey hair who spoke no English) was not welcoming at all.
The room was ok. It was overlooking some sky and ocean with a small balcony. Bathroom very old style. Beds were the most decent bit. We stayed there for 4 nights and from the 3rd night there was a crockroach hanging around the bathroom.
The best part of the hotel was a guy named Alex at the front desk. His is middle aged and speaks good English and very helpful. They should get more good staff like him!
The location is excellent. It's about 50 meters from the Airport Shuttle stop (from the domestic airport) and it's right between Ipanema and Copacabana. There are some popular bars down the road and you can walk to supermarkets, restaurants and shops easily and safely.
I wanted to move to Atlantis Copacabana which was 3 minutes around the corner but they were full and I could tell why. The lobby was much newer and more pleasant looking and the reception was cheerful and spoke good English. Obviously it's a much better valued option!
