“Good and short stay.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

Stayed here for two nights last week. Got to hotel around noon and was able to check in right away. The staff seemed nice and pleasant to deal with. The location is great, not on the beach, but only a few blocks away, never went to the water since I live on Miami Beach, so no need to. The metro station is across the street so it was easy to go to Ipanema and to downtown.

The breakfast was ok, just wish they had more choices.

There were only two issues, one was the internet, which was mostly non-existent and they other was the mattress, hard as a rock! I'm used to Hilton family hotels, where the bedding is just perfect!

other than that, I would recommend this hotel for a short stay.

We stayed in this hotel for 3 days and the people on front desk couldnt be worst. They are lazy and complitely unhappy with the idea of working. They are rude, the hotel is not clean and copacabana smells. If you are coming to rio, stay at ipanema/leblon area.

Stayed at this hotel for business while in Rio. The location is good, about 3 blocks from Copacabana beach. The rooms are very sparse but functional as with bathrooms. Service was efficient but not friendly.
Wifi worked well if there on business
Breakfast was included and decent.
Overall the hotel was fine, and for the price in Rio I probably would stay again but would not rave about it.

Renovated and clean rooms. We were lucky to have a 15th floor room. Service was perfect everyone is nice and ready to help. Breakfast is very good with fresh juices and good food. Swimming pool on top of the building is nice with a cool view on Corcovado.

The hotel is ok, but nothing special. The rooms are ok but a bit tired. The staff ranged from the very helpful to unhelpful to the point of rudeness. The hotel is a couple of blocks back from the beach and there is a small swimming pool on the roof. ok if you are staying in rio for a night or two, but not for a long stay. Aircon very noisy

Thats a good location hotel, small, staff not so good, overpriced , a basic hotel, the only good thing is that near to the beach. I dont know how the prices in Rio are so expensive, and the rates in this hotel, for the service and instalations are ridiculous.

This hotel is VERY overpriced. Looks like their last renovation was in 1970. Everything is in very bad condition.

Aircondition was not working very good. Sound isolation not very good. Rooftop pool was very small and not clean. Staff went inside our room even though we had do not disturb sign on.

The area is very boring. There is nothing to do in this area. Only ripoff bars and not many restaurants. I would not reccomend Copacaban/Ipanema area. Better to live in the center or on the outskirts of Rio!

Staff was not very friendly or helpful. I did not see one person smile even once.

Oh yes i did see it once, when they ordered a taxi for me which was a RIP OFF!! They guys in reception said something to each other on Portuguese and laughed.
They told me it was safer and cheaper if they ordered the taxi, rather taking one of the street. In real life they just hijacked a taxi from the street, the taxi was at a fixed overprice and the driver and the reception staff split the overprice 50/50. I saw the money exchange with my own eyes!! I now what should have been the price on the meter and the money the staff got was precise 50% of the overprice.

I travel a lot (around 3 months a year). This hotel is very bad value for money and i would not recommend it for anybody!

I saw other hotels in the same area, much better quality for the same price. But in the end of the day, i would recommend to get a room in the city center or Santa Teresa instead. Much better quality for cheaper prices!
