Location is just set back from the fort-end of Copacabana Beach. Very close to the action, but set back enough not to be noisy. The area is very safe these days - there are many police on patrol, and a temporary police station at the end of the road. The public areas are on the small side, though the ground floor reception and bar were not often crowded. The top floor terrace does get busy though, with fabulous views but only a small swimming pool. The bedroom was of a good size. The décor is neat but nothing special. What is special though is the attentive and friendly service from all members of staff - really the best we struck in Brazil. The same comment also applies to the restaurant breakfast, which was excellent with a wide choice of hot and cold dishes. We also had a very pleasant dinner there one evening, and this was of a rather better quality than most of the restaurant options nearby. The hotel has recently been refurbished, and is unlikely to disappoint, even if one feels that the TripAdvisor '#1 in Rio' rating may flatter it a little. WiFi is free and actually works. One small irritation was that when we tried to check out late on our last evening (we were due to leave early the next morning), we could only do so if we left a further credit card imprint - presumably in case we emptied the minibar overnight! That aside, warmly recommended.
