“Needs urgent care”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2013

This is a hotel with a very reasonable location, in Copacabana. The managers are a big international group, Atlantica Hotels. I don't understand how this group and it employees are not embarrassed of managing a property in this way.

OK, hotels in Rio are, generally, a tragedy. The only chance of reasonable experience is if you have a very high budget to stay in one of the 10 or 12 Top hotels in town (and trust me, Fasano is very nice, but most the rooms are really small and they usually cost close to USD1000). But some hotels should be closed, truly renewed and reopened. This is the case of this hotel. and you can see the pictures that prove what I'm mentioning.

The hotel entrance is ugly. There's no lobby. The rooms, are truly spacious and have received a poor make up. But hotel managers: lcd tv appliance is not the solution of a hotel room.

The bathroom had a really bad smell, toilet had a dirty seat, door and sink were dirty, soap holder had rests of previous guest soap. The bath towels are rotten , have a dirty appearance and a small size.

The beds were fair, and comfortable and there was no dust in the floor, which was clean. Although I gave myself the right of limiting my investigations in this sense to floors and bathroom.

What I really can't understand is how they sell a room with rotten doors, no major finishing, old snacks (not dated, but very close to be) placed over the fridge and other poor conditions for more than 150 dollars per night (standard rate is USD230).

The hotels in Rio, considering the major events that are close to happen in the city, should be in the field of the most important subjects of the public authorities, which should take immediate action regarding this subject.

And Atlantica hotels: be ashamed of putting up your brand in a hotel and care for it like you care for this hotel. Your managing way is poor and focus only on short term gains. That’s not very clever, I would say.

Room Tip: My feeling is that this hotel has no good rooms, but if you need to stay here, ask for a high floor...

The location is excellent. Bus stop and metro station are next to the hotel. Hotel is only 2 blocks from Copacabana beach. It offers great variety of food for breakfast. The staff was very helpful even with little knowledge of English. We found supermarket opposite the hotel and bistros near hotel. The room was very spacious with 2 LCD TVs and little kitchen and big bed with new mattress which was very comfortable.

The room was rather dirty. Hot water worked only for few minutes. Even though the room contains small kitchen, there were only glasses, no plates, no cutlery. Hotel needs major renovation. The card lock system is outdated, as is anything else.

Two blocks away from Copacabana beach and well provided with buses going to and coming from Rio de Janeiro's bus terminal station, not to mention close proximity to Cardeal Arcoverde metro station, this hotel is a good option if what you seek is location. The staff is relatively helpful (considering Rio's well known frail and idle standards), the rooms are fairly spacious. Breakfast is nothing fancy, but satisfactory. We had problems with the bathroom though, as water leaked in such amount we could almost say we had a private beach.
