We reached at 9 am and they tried to accommodate an early check-in which they did around 11 am. It turned out okay since we spent the time having their breakfast buffet. The buffet has a lot of variety, but the selections remained the same for the 4 days that I stayed there. We had the triple-bed room so it was spacious with a clean bathroom. The front desk was helpful too and they always had at least one person who could speak English. Grocery stores, restaurants and banks are within 1-2 mins walk.
This hotel is just 5 mins walk from Largo do Machado station which is a huge advantage since you can catch a van to Corcovado from outside the station. The van takes you directly to the top and is very convenient. The hotel terrace has a view of the Christ statue so it's a good check point to see if there is any cloud cover before heading to Corcovado.
Since we traveled only by taxi, here are the taxi fares (one-way) in Dec. 2013 from the hotel to various attractions:
To Ipanema beach: 27 reals
To Copacabana beach: 18 reals
To Leblon beach: 32 reals
To Centro: 17 reals
To Sugarloaf: 15 reals
Hope you enjoy Rio.
