Hotel is is old, tiled floors, old building and noisy. Wi-Fi (which they charged us for) was non-existent. Location is ordinary and there really is nothing to recommend about this hotel. Many other better options available.

Copacabana
The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional
and old areas from Rio de Janeiro. This neighbourhood
