“Lovely Hotel but Overpriced!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

We stayed over New Years in Dec and had booked 4 nights. We ended up extending and stayed 9 nights as we enjoyed Rio so much. Lovely hotel - couldnt fault it at all but it was ridiculously expensive but then it was peak season when we went. Lovely beds and bathroom. Large rooms with a seperate living room area with sofas and a table. Definately worth a stay if you can get a decent price. Its 3 blocks away from Copacaba Beach which is the liveliest part of Rio (3 blocks 300 metres). Hotel are very good with making sure you keep safe etc. They will even help book your tours for you. Staff couldnt have been more helpful - they were great!

We stayed as part of a group for ten nights in July 2012. Firstly I will begin by saying the rooms are lovely, clean,spacious ,comfy and well maintained. The swimming pool is fab with great views. The breakfasts are nice. However I am slow to recommend this hotel for a . Number of reasons; we had numerous items taken from our room ( sunglasses, perfume, expensive make up) and our friends had a guess watch taken fom their dresser in their room. This leads me on to my second fault with the hotel- the staff- so unfriendly and not in the least bit helpful. When i was upset and I reported that things had been taken fom my room they shouted at me that the cleaner had worked for the hotel or years nod wouldn't do such a thing. Another thing to bear in mind is not to book tours forth hotel they are crazy expensive and we got the same tours or literally half the price fom tourist hut on the beach. If you do decide to stay here put everything. !!!!!! In the safe!

Location is good.
The staff is ok but could be more efficient. The bed in the room were not good.
Breakfast is really bad, internet connection works ok.
Overall ok but the rooms need renovation and new beds.

Nice and efficient hotel .
Close to Metrò and Beach .
Standard room are ok . Bathroom OK
Disappointing asking 4 Reales for the use of the inroom safe !!
Considering the room rate , it's an insult
Reception desk people should smile a bit more to cover the small inefficiencies

Very average hotel all round, but more than adequate and in a really good location for Copacabana beach and the metro, which is the best way to get around Rio. Nice, albeit small, rooftop pool and leisure area. I will return if I get a really good rate, but not otherwise.

It is a simple, but honest hotel. The staff are not very nice, but is helpfull. The rooms are not luxurious but is confortable. Itbis 3 blocks from the beach, so you can walk to the beach. Breakfast is great in the morning with a good selection of fruits.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms on the back. Front is too noise.
