We stayed in this hotel for three days on the bottom floor and even though the staff were great the room was less than desirable. It was quite noisy as we were close to reception (room 105), there was a power point that it was pretty much hanging off the wall and the bathroom was very small. The basin didn't even have hot water available but on the positive side the water pressure of the shower was great.
Breakfast was included but it was very basic and, coffee was lukewarm so I tried a cup of tea and it wasn't any better.
The location was great and we could walk to Copacabana and enjoy the restaurants and the markets.
All in all, it was a good experience but I would classify this hotel as a one star just above a Hostel, given the choice I wouldn't stay in it again.
Thank Eros S

Because I was expecting a 3 star hotel I was disappointed in the standard of accommodation. It is more like the next level up from a hostel. Having said that, the bed was comfortable, the shower was hot and the staff were lovely. Breakfast was basic and wifi was slow if existing at all, but the location of this boutique hotel was excellent. And if you’re looking for something really cheap this could be for you.

On Arrival we were met by the very friendly and helpful hotel staff. - Excellent knowledge of the area and where to go and eat.

The rooms - whilst large - and a little bare, with limit power sockets, they do come with a safe and a fridge though which are both very useful.

Security in the evenings is also good as there is a metal gate that is shut in the evenings and you need to buzz the desk for them to open it.

Stay here as a couple and they put us on the bottom floor. It was a bit noisy from the guest above and the house behind us. However It was safe as there was some one at reception 24 hours.
The hotel - very basic heritage hotel. WiFi was strong some days and weak at other times.
The room - basic . The Wardrobe really stunk. Smelt like damp. The safe didn’t work . Have to ask receptionist for the master key. Provide 2 soaps , shampoo and conditioner. Small fridge and a very small TV.
The restaurant- the staff was excellent. Food was amazing!!!! Highly recommend eating here one night.
Service - two of the staff was excellent and very helpful. There was a one that didn’t know what was happening. He answered everything by “ someone will do it tomorrow or Ill will order tomorrow” . Asked him to fix the door knob in the bathroom twice as we got trapped inside once. After we left on the 4th day it still didn’t get fixed.

I have been in this hotel and in Rio de Janeiro (of course) with my parents many years ago and it has been very exciting to be back. Rio has changed a lot but in a nice way and is always beautiful. The Hotel has been renewed i guess and much better than before. Not fancy but very functional.

The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional
and old areas from Rio de Janeiro. This neighbourhood
is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and
traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of
everything: bars with music, pubs, street fairs,
chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and
more live side-by-side. There are options for all
price points and tastes. However, the most powerful
