I really enjoyed my stay here. Yes, the rooms are a bit small, but the bathrooms are nice and modern and the bed was comfortable. Yes, the A/C was a little bit noisy, but it was good and strong. The only negative was somehow I had a few mosquitos in my room. Anyways, the staff were lovely, throughout the hotel.... More

This is the second time I stay in this hotel. The staff are friendly and the rooms are relatively clean. The breakfast is also good. It is located in Ipanema which is perfect, since it is only 3 blocks from the beach and is between Leblon and Copacabana. The area is also relatively safe to walk in. They do not... More

Hotel is very well located to the beach and surrounding areas. Rooms aren't massive but all in fairly good value for money. Breakfasts are simple but adequate and served in the pub downstairs. Nice atmosphere in the pub. All staff are generally quite friendly, willing to assist and speak english (a big plus).

We chose this hotel for its location on the beautiful Ipanema beach, and as a safe, comfortable option in Rio. The location is good, although it's quite a long walk back up to Copacabana and the Metro - we'd probably stay closer to Posto 8/ the corner between the two beaches, if we were to return. The lagoon was an... More
