The breakfast here is really good - best I've had on my trip so far. The room rate isn't great value given that the hotel is a little tired and in need of some updating. However staff couldn't be more helpful and friendly. The pool is tiny - don't be fooled by the photos on their website! Great location with... More

Stayed here for a week during the Olympics. Smaller hotel, great location. Beach right in front of hotel. Hotel gives out chairs and towels for the Beach. Close to Copacabana but not as hectic as that beach. Nice neighborhood, great local restaurants and metro within walking distance. Hotel staff speak English and many Spanish too.

I've seen a few reviews on this hotel, most of them good. I stayed for two nights while finishing a business trip and the facilities were great - by beach, near decent restaurants and the main sights such as Copacabana, sugar loaf mountain and Christ the redeemer. Staff were friendly and room was very clean. Sea view with a balcony... More

My oceanfront room was great, but the staff at this hotel was even better. I got freaked out about some bug bites and they helped me find the pharmacy and translated some Portuguese to help me. The cleaning people were nice, and the guy running the (at times rowdy, excellent view) rooftop bar was funny and friendly. I was very... More

I stayed here for 3 weeks working during the Olympics. Could not have been happier. Clean rooms, comfy bed, great shower and delicious breakfast. The best part for me, however, was the housekeeping staff. I had to put my dog to sleep very unexpectedly just prior to the Games. I brought a stuffed dog with me as a cuddle. The... More

Centrally located roughly one block off Ipanema Beach. Room was OK as was food. Nice restaurants/bars located on same street. Safe and convenient. Thought they could have done a little better with the maintenance... bathtub was scarred with some sort of a black tar looking substance; shower was either cold or scalding and AC was either freezing or off.

The hotel is very nice. The food is excellent and the staff is really helpful. I especially enjoyed the roof top bar and those delicious tropical cocktails. My only complaint would be the slow elevators and the lighting in the hallways is a bit strange. They have sensor lights that do not stay on very long.

We stayed at this hotel as part of an Olympic package and were pleasantly surprised. Clean, safe, and central beach location. We arrived at 9:30am from an overnight flight and they kindly let us check our bags and enjoy the rooftop deck and pool before our 2pm check in. Wifi spotty one day but otherwise no complaints.

Comfortable 4 star hotel. Good location right on Ipanema beach quieter than Copacabana and surrounded by good eating places. Definitely ask for an ocean view. Good breakfast buffet. Nice restaurant (though more exciting ones locally to choose from). Rooftop heated swimming pool is small but fun - with rooftop bar overlooking Ipanema beach and the two brothers mountain.

I will never forget this hotel. Very good location, friendly staff, nice rooms, and good chocolate treats! I stayed here for a week during the Semana Santa. I was lucky to have a room overlooking the beautiful Ipanema beach. By the time, you can see hundreds of red umbrella, the view of the beach, and the mountain!
