Folks if you want friendliness, class, attention, quality and the absolute BEST people. This is your place. I am blessed to travel the world and this is rated a 4 star but don't let the numbers fool you. I want to recognize all below that I had a positive experience with during my stay there. Simone - Disney class and training but even better. Sascha...theman.com Handled Everything right and went SUPER above and beyond. Called and checked on me during his day off and even when I left the hotel to go to the sister hotel in Sao Paulo. How many times has one heard of that. Daniel.....has it all with class and service. Great man. Thiago..thanks for all. Security at the hotel was excellent with Max and Paulo. Edilesa thanks for cleaning up after me. Had a slight issue with the A.C. but they upgraded me and took care of me above and beyond and very quickly. If I was looking for improvement , I was not crazy about the breakfast. Good variety but I'm not a buffet person. Covid hurts this concept I believe. Service there was world class though. Check in....seamless, check out great. I was robbed of my cell phone about a 1/4 mile away at Copacabana Palace but this has absolutely nothing to do with this hotel. I cant find a bad thing to say if I wanted. Anyone that wishes to ask me question please do so and I will answer. Also, as an at a boy /girl, I am going to toward this review to Expedia CEO, Peter Kern as this hotel deserves it. I stayed at the 5 star Portobay in Sao Paulo and while awesome, this hotel regarding friendliness is above and beyond. Guys keep on keeping on and I WILL BE BACK.

Hotel's Favorite
Wonderful hotel just across the road from Copacabana beach - sitting on the balcony watching all the action was great. Good size bedroom with all amenities and complimentary toiletries. Restaurant was on the 5th floor with panoramic views over the beach. But the best bit about the hotel - the food. Breakfast was to die for with every taste and dietary need catered for. The fruit was heavenly; platter after platter of mango, papaya, melon (at least 3 different varieties), oranges, pineapple, kiwi fruit, bananas, passion fruit, grapes etc etc. Ate there the first night thinking once we’d found our bearings we’d travel further afield but so impressed were we by the standard of food we ate there every night of our 3 night stay. Small rooftop pool and gymn too served by a poolside bar - not masses of space but always found a sun bed. Without exception the staff were very pleasant, courteous and provided excellent customer service

The staff is very attentive and was going extra mile to accommodate our requests. We were delighted to have a room ready for us, even though we arrived before check-in time. Our room was on the 19th floor, which is the highest one available (the pool is located on the 20th). Our view was simply amazing, with Chris the redeemer on our right-hand side. We truly enjoyed staying in the balcony checking out people in the beach and the summer breeze in the evenings. The pool is also amazing, which a super friendly staff, where you can easily spend the whole day just relaxing and having some cocktails (best passion fruit caipiroska I had in Brazil!) Breakfast is a whole new level: they offer a great variety of food and juices, which will please everyone's taste. I was amazed to try the papaya cake and watermelon juice. I will definitely stay there again next time I'm in Rio.

We’ve stayed there for 3 nights in the TopFloor Suite in which we experienced THE WORST NIGHT EVER! But let’s take things from the beginning! We arrived and our room was not ready for some reason at the bespike time. So we waited until 16:30 to go in! No welcome drink as advertised but we payed for 2 cocktails that we’ve had while waiting! Upon entering the room we noticed that the floors were disgustingly dirty, you could tell that no one had vacuumed the room for the past 1-2 weeks at least and while trying to wash our hands using the bathroom sink , some kind of dirt came from the drain! So we called the supervisor and he fixed it . But he fixed it the next day , so whenever we wanted to wash ourselves we had to smell/see dirt coming up from the drain ! And now to our last morning : When we woke up on our last morning I saw that over the living room table and through the led lights above the table there was water dripping making soaking wet all our belongings (passports / money / personal bag / earphones / caps ) . So we called the reception asking for the hotel manager! First came the supervisor! Then the housekeeping! Then at last the hotel manager, who promised us some kind of compensation for our destroyed earphones and wet things! Which NEVER HAPPENED! Not only this, upon us contacting the hotel, there was NO ANSWER of course! All this was at the TOP FLOOR SUITE the most expensive room they’ve had!

Dear guest, we appreciate your comments and am sorry that we were not able to provide our usual standards of service during your stay. I am analysing your comments in detail together with the team to ensure that this does not happen again, and I would like to clarify that you stayed 2 nights with us, your room was ready at 01:25pm before the oficial 2 pm check in time, and we did not charge you for the drinks. Once again we are very sorry for this misunderstanding, and we hope to see you again soon to make your stay much better. Kind Regards, Gustavo Zanotta Front Office Manager

Stayed here for 4 days and found the hotel good for Copacabana beach and sight seeing. Disappointingly our room 804 had a side street view of the opposite building but when on the balcony you could just see the beach. Rooms are clean but small and compact . Staff are all very friendly and helpful. The breakfasts are varied, delicious and items are topped up regularly. We tried the restaurant one evening and it has a great a la carte menu with a good choice although prices aren’t cheap. The roof top bar and pool are a bonus as are the beach facilities.
