The best thing about this hotel is its location. Right on the strip of copacabana beach, from my room I woke up to a view of it every morning which was idyllic.
Looking out the window to the other side I could also see Christ the redeemer - which was very impressive.

There are plenty of restaurants within arms reach as either beach huts or slightly more formal settings.

For shopping the walk to ipanema took about 30-40 mins, and a taxi to rio sul shopping centre (worth a visit if cool or rainy ) took 10. The shops surrounding the hotel are not that great but there is a hippie market in ipanema and a market at the far end if avenue atlantica. The hippie market is much bigger and better if you want a market.

The room itself was very adequate for our needs. The view was the best but the bed was very large and comfortable enough. It was always clean.

The tv had three English channels.

The breakfast was varied and very fresh and tasty.

My only criticism would be the pool which is essentially a glorified bath! Very small so can't do much swimming in it, but the pool bar and views from the roof amazing.

Very much recommended.

We enjoyed our 6 days here very much and found the hotel very clean and the service attentive. The food/breakfast service was excellent and the selection had something for everybody. Free wifi in lobby and top deck was a nice plus. The staff was responsive to all of our needs and helpful in many ways. The pool/top deck offers a great vantage point to take in all the views of the beach with a bar right there to reax worry free. Highly recommended for those seeking great accommodations on Copacobana Beach at semi-reasonable prices.

The staff was very helpful and the hotel is very beautifully decorated. We booked a regular room and they upgraded us to an ocean view front on a high floor since the occupancy was not full. They made the experience in Rio and on the Copacabana beach excellent. The view from their pool deck on the roof is beautiful!! Sugarloaf and Christ the Redeemer statue visible from each direction!!

Great view of the beach, Great area. Breakfast has a wide variety of food. I did a lot of research of the hotels in the Area and this hotel appeared to have the best reviews for the best value for money, and we were happy with everything in the hotel. The staff spoke English.
