I highly recommend this hotel not only for its location but for the pleasant English speaking staff and relaxing space. The roof top bar/pool area has chaise lounges and parasols with a stunning vista over the beach and mountains. Our meals were flavourful and beautifully presented. The rooms were clean with fresh, crisp white linens. Should I visit Portugal one day I will stay in one of their PortoBay properties.

Hotel's Favorite
Great location and perfect views. Easy to walk around the beaches and good restaurants. The upstairs staff in the pool area were very friendly. The pool is small but it’s good for a fast dip. We picked this location because they had a balcony and great views.

Perfect stay for a couple, walking distance to beach and great food options. Lovely rooftop pool, gym, and beach services. Clean and comfortable room and bed! Highly recommend for anyone traveling to rio, had small Botique feel while being a big enough hotel to have good amenities

The staff was so friendly and hospitable, the location is great, and there were some thoughtful touches here and there, but I would NOT stay here again, unfortunately. First, there was a miscommunication about whether or not breakfast was included in my stay. A gentleman at the front desk told me that breakfast was included, but when I checked out, I got hit with a bill for an extra 340 Reais. That was frustrating. I don’t mind paying for things, but what I do care about is being told the CORRECT information so there are no surprises. Had I known that I had to pay for breakfast, I would’ve skipped it because the food they served is not worth the amount I paid. For a hotel with a price point that’s geared towards luxury, I expected better, and simple mistakes like these should not be happening. Second, the showers were awful. There was one morning when the hot water didn’t work. There were other times when it took a long time for the hot water to even come on. And there was another day where the overhead shower couldn’t stay on. The only redeeming quality about this hotel was the view from my balcony. I could see all of Copacabana and Christ the Redeemer, but based on the experience I had, it’s not worth it. If you have a couple hundred dollars to spend per night on a hotel in Copacabana, I highly, highly suggest you book elsewhere.

Great service, amazing views, delicious food, and perfect location! I'm usually very picky, so take my advice!! From the moment I checked-in, we were warmly greeted by the doorman offering assistance with our luggage. The front desk guy, Sacha was very accommodating and warmly welcomed us with champagne. His attitude was really pleasant and made us feel welcomed from the start. We had two rooms, one superior room and one top floor suite. Both rooms were exceptionally clean and fully stocked with snacks and drinks. Let's not forget the view, spectacular! Wifi had great bandwidth and allowed me to work via Zoom with no issues. We unfortunately did not come prepared with an adapter for our US plugs, but the hotel kindly provided us with one making it easy for us to charge our phones, laptops, etc. The rooftop food and drinks were, perfection. Breakfast was my favorite. The buffet offered a variety of fresh fruits, fresh squeezed OJ and fruit drinks, yogurt, eggs, meat, bread, oats, you name it – it was there! The hotel was also conveniently located across the street from the beach, next to quality restaurants (Kinjo was my favorite – so good, I went twice!) All in all, the biggest highlight of this hotel was their service and rooftop view. Everyone was warm, spoke English, super professional, and very accommodating. They even allowed me to have an extended late-check out since I had a late-night flight. I HIGHLY recommend this hotel and I will definitely be back.

Very nice hotel right on Copacabana. The front desk staff were very nice and friendly. My room was clean, surprisingly large for a double (maybe queen size) bed, and the bathroom was well appointed and clean. Very nice breakfast in a room with a nice view of the beach. The gym also has an excellent view of the beach and pool, but it features only a bike, treadmill and stepper, all of which could do with replacing due to their age. There was also a weight machine and room for stretching. The rooftop pool (20th floor) offers spectacular views and they make a great caipirinha, My only minor complaint is that the elevators can carry 4 people max or 2 with luggage, they are tiny but I would certainly stay here again. Amir restaurant around the corner offers excellent Mediterranean food and there is a nice acai shake bar on the same street.

Hotel is situated on av.Atlantico directly on the beach. A good base to explore rio from, generally a high standard hotel, only let down by the size of the room chose, a superior side sea view room, it was long and narrow and felt dark most of the time, lots of storage space, but let down by the awkward bathroom configuration and the lack of space in the bedroom. There are only 2 lifts so be prepared to wait for sometime in bust periods, especially breakfast time.

A water pipe broke in the hotel. I didn't have a good experience. Despite what we went through, we were not offered any alternative accommodation. They told us that the situation was going to be fixed soon but this lasted until the next day.
