This Hotel was one of my favorites during my business trips to Rio, since the location is excellent for single people. You have the beach in the front and quite an awesome variety of restaurants and bars all around the area within 5-6 blocks. The hotel has a nice pool and sauna to enjoy.

My second trip to this particular hotel; the first was on my own, this time with a South American travel colleague. The location is good with great views from the Sea View room. The room itself is very basic with a decent bed but very cramped bathroom/toilet that was in need of some renovation. The air conditioning system is extremely...

Location in this case is always all about. From the hotel to the magnificent beach just crossing the avenue. At night all the bars & restaurants are just around the corner, it will get crowded and noise..but that is what is expected to be..right? Views from the rooms are great, unless you are in a lower floor. I would have...

The hotel is beautiful and the location is awesome. You feel very safer in Barra da Tijuca than you feel in places like Copacabana. A lot of restaurants and cool places to go very close to the hotel. The beach right in front of the hotel is the high point!

OK, first the positives: - great location - right across the street from a great beach, very close to a street with lots of restaurants - fantastic breakfast - huge variety of pretty good food - free On the negative side, my main complaint involves the front desk staff (they don't have a concierge). We were talking with them about...

We were here for 3 nights. The hotel is conveniently located across the street from the beach. We were in Rio for a festival - and we were well taken care of. The breakfast that came with the room was nice- good choice of fruit, it was a bit limited in hot choices, but the quality was good. Our room...

ThIs hotel is very comfortable. There exists a pleasant mix between vacationers and people in town on business. The hotel is quite expensive but this seems to be the case for most of the area. The Internet is very reliable. The food is a little less reliable, however. Utilize the restaurant choices in the area.
