Very nice place. We got a high room for the view. It was worth it. People were helpful although occasionally there were no English speakers. But not for long. Room beautiful and well maintained. Restaurant was good. Actually better than some places we went. Rooftop bar and pool had great view of beach sunsets and sunrise. Helpful concierge.

The hotel was located right on the Copacabana beach and we could also see Christ the Redeemer from our room. Very clean and the staff were extremely helpful. One gentleman in particular by the name of Lopes was very helpful in suggesting restaurants and activities in the city and area. He and the rest of the staff made our first visit to Rio de Janeiro very pleasant and amazing!

Modern hotel,in a great location overlooking Copacabana beach and close to major attraction. Views were amazing. Looking on to the beach, with the Corcovado just behind. Rooms were large, comfortable and clean. Rooftop pool and bar was brilliant - pool isn’t huge but was great for cooling down. Staff in the bar were so friendly and helpful- especially Deraldo, Jailton , Aline, Dinas and William - they couldn’t do enough for us. Reception staff, especially Yasmin, were great too. Would certainly recommend it.

Rooms clean and tidy, good beach location. Terrible breakfast, no black tea, bread is full of sugar, toaster does not toast but the thing that tips this hotel into the will go elsewhere next time is the fact that they charge for ICE. Never in all our travels has a hotel been stingy enough to charge for ice.

Very nice hotel. Would book again. I'm one to wander off the beaten path, but not to wander into the favela's. Stay away from the neighborhoods on the hillsides. They are not welcoming! Copacabana and Ipanema are the party spots. Guys...the place is packed with beautiful, friendly women - especially if you are American. Race matters not. This is not a couples destination, unless you want your mate PO'd the entire time you're there. Saw things there that wouldn't be allowed in the most liberal cities in the U. S. It's been over 20 years since my last visit and the place is better than before if you're out to enjoy yourself. Going again, but won't wait as long!

We stayed here for NYE and was by far the most competitive hotel on Copacabana- for the price we paid in comparison to what some of the others were charging I was very happy. However, for a 4* hotel to not have an iron or ironing board anywhere in the hotel, that’s crazy to me. The pool was dirty and one of the days our room just didn’t get cleaned at all. Breakfast wasn’t great. The location is right in the middle of Copacabana however and can’t be beaten and Ubers pulled up right outside the entrance which was really helpful. The staff were nice and the rooms were big and clean. I probably wouldn’t stay here again, but for the price at that time of year, I was fine with it.

We loved that our room had a beach view :) Breakfast was quite good. Pool is not impressive like most 4* hotels in Copa, but it has a great view with a bar and it seems pool area has been recently renovated. Price was correct and not more expensive than other hotels around. We did not take valuables at the beach because I know Rio too well, so if you need to take cash or cards etc make sure you hide them.

Solid business/ tourist hotel. Most rooms face out to five glorious views of the beach ... Male sure you book one of them! Breakfast is good and when I went (7am ish) relaxed and not busy. Rooms don't have a kettle/ coffee facilities but are clean and tidy. The roof top pool is only really big enough for dipping.. go to the ocean for a real swim. Roof also gives views of Christ the Reedemer

Secure and safe for family travel with young children’s. Just steps away from the beach, supermarkets, drugstores, shops, restaurants. Choose a room with view to Copacabana beach, it is worthy. One of my kids got sick during the travel just before returning home and we went to Hospital Copa D'Or, highly recommended if you have any health issue and very close to hotel. Rooftop pool is great at night and during the day. Breakfast with great variety of choice and good quality. Onsite restaurant with very good quality food. A bit to the downside is cleaning which I think the hotel should put more effort on cleaning well the bathroom and the bedroom floor. Check-out should be faster, at least 10 minutes waiting for verifications and so forth. Aside from those minor details, one of the best hotels in Copacabana, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The hotel is right in front of Copacana beach, near many restaurants, bars, and access to transportation. My room had an amazing beach front view, it was clean, and very comfortable. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. A big shout-out to Tiffany, Eduarda, and every else that worked the front desk. They gave us great advice on places to visit and restaurant recommendations.
