We chose this hotel for an extra 2 days in Rio after a cruise. The location was great as it was right across from the beach. There was plenty of selection for eateries within close walking distance. Shopping was a block away and quite walkable in either direction.
Our room was quite adequate with a view of the beach. Both room and bathroom were a comfortable size and relatively clean. However, the handle of the hairdryer had not been cleaned for sometime and fortunately we did not need it. The downside of the hotel is that the walls are less than soundproof.
The breakfasts were generous with a good variety.
We found the front desk staff to be helpful. They spoke English as our Portuguese was less than limited. It was great to see a cold weather Christmas theme in the lobby.
