“Poor service, great location”
Reviewed August 25, 2012

If you just need a place to sleep this one is for you, if the price it's ok. I think it was very expensive and the overall quality was quite poor. The breakfast room is small and dirty, with few things to eat. The Hotel was under renovation so it was a little dusty and noisy but i hope it's a temporary condition. The swimming pool was unavaible because of the renovation.
One last thing...
The WIFI was really expensive (15€/Day) , no free time, and the reception's computer for customers didn't work.
Luckily just outside the hotel, on the bench on the right, there's a free wifi which works quite well.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the beach so you get a great view and free wifi in the room from the outside free...

Not too bad if you have a low budget and you do not have great expectations.We paid 200 euros for 2 nights - 3 persons including brekfast for a triple delux room with 2 single and 1 double bad at 9 th floor with the sea wiew ( wich is great). So if you have a low buget,beeing with friends for 1 fun week and you do not want lux , but wanna stay in Copacabana beach I would recomand it,othrweys no.It's still on renovation but at the 9 floor we could not hear the workers.....maybe because of traffic that could be heard from outside through the old single glass windows.Room is very big,clean but with old furniture.Brekfast is modest . Location is good, a little bit to the end of the beach , closer to Suger Loaf Mountain side. No internet unless you pay 30 reals a day.No air conditionat in the room.No problems regarding the warm water.All toghether it is a 3 stars Hotel under renovation !

Room Tip: Ask for high floor room with sea wiew when you book.

The only thing this place has of a hotel is the name (that incidentally has been removed from the front as part of the renovation). The room was dirty, the beds used and abused, the carpet completely stained, half the tv channels didn't work and the shower disgusting (rusted shower head). Sadly it was one of the only hotels available and recommended by hotels.com. I now understand why it still was available. Hope they really renovate the place and make it into a hotel as the location and original structure (untouched since it was built 70 yrs ago?) would have lots of potential.

The city was fulll and this one was the only place available! Never ever again! Big, but very old rooms with totally uncharming furniture. Very dirty and old carpet floor. They are refurbishing the restaurant, so workers began to make noise at 7 am and did not stop anymore. Only good thing was the location and breakfast was ok, but I will never ever stay here again!

I would agree that this is a strictly no frills hotel, but my room was very clean, no smells, and was absolutely enormous, with a huge bathroom and an excellent shower! The location is unbeatable at this price - as well as the beach, the back room that I was in had a small balcony and a great view over the mountains and the Christ statue. Breakfast OK, standard Brazilian buffet. The reception was always staffed at all hours, and I saw no real reason to be concerned about security. WiFi was about £10 a day - standard in Brazil. Very friendly staff at reception.

My overall message would be, if you want US style hotel decor in Brazil, go to the Marriott or the Hilton or the Sofitel. You won't have any surprises. In a hotel like this, that clearly caters to a mainly Brazilian clientele, you may be surprised - pleasantly as often as not in my view, and you will learn a lot more about the country.

Room Tip: Room 1205 - great view, twin beds

This 1950's hotel has an absolutely wonderful location opposite Copacabana beach, but it looks, feels and smells as though it hasn't been touched since it was built!
Windows on the outside of the building no longer have glass, the foyer is sparse to say the least with minimal security and the once elegant interior now feels like something from The Shining.

My second stay in this hotel in the last three years. Every other hotel was full My colleague had his credit card skimmed by the waiter in the cafe/bar downstairs!! A large sum was withdrawn from his account illegally. Another colleague had her laptop stolen from her room on our previous stay!

Old a and dirty rooms and batthrooms. Old, non-working window airconditioners. Room is noisy as hell if you are facing the beach.Lifts barely work. No internet Dining room downstairs turns into a noisy nightclub on weekends.

On a positive note the food in their dining room was tasty and good value.
