I stayed here with my partner recently for a week during the World Cup. The double room we had was very spacious. The bed and pillows were comfy, air con was good, TV a reasonable size and had a mini bar with some very cheaply priced water- less than £1 each. The bathroom was also pretty big. There was no bath but the shower fitted both of us nicely with good water pressure. There was plenty of shelf space for all of our toiletries.
The staff all spoke English and we found them to be very friendly and helpful. You can borrow towels, umbrellas and chairs to take to the beach (which is a 2 minute walk away) for no charge. They were also kind enough to leave a gift in our room of 2 pairs of havaiana flip flops and a beach wrap- thank you Mar Ipanema!!
The roof of the hotel has a very nice little bar with views all around- including Christ the Redeemer. At the bottom of the hotel is a great bar/restaurant- Devassa, where we had a really good buffet breakfast every day. Great choice of juices and hot and cold foods. We ate and drank there on other occasions too- v good menu and caipirinhas.
The location of the hotel though, has to be one of the best things about it. The area is very safe, there are lots of nice shops, restaurants and bars nearby and the beach is only 2 short blocks away. Copacabana isn't far in a taxi- about £5 to get there.
Overall, I can't recommend this hotel enough. If we ever return to Rio, I'll be more than happy to stay here again
