After a disastrous experience at Rondovia, our travel agent (who was fortunately travelling with us) managed a saving move to SESC for our two remaining nights in Rio. Location is good, in a pretty quiet street near Copacabana beach and various nice bars and restaurants. My room was ok, nothing special to highlight, but at least no issue. Like most places I stayed in Brazil, breakfast buffet was just fine. While wifi was not working well, the big issue in his hotel is about elevators. Only two lifts for such a high-rise building made me wait sometimes up to ten minutes !
I can’t really understand how the place is so highly rated among all Rio’s hotels (well, it basically shows how average is the accommodation offer around...) but it’s all in all not a bad place.
