Located between Copacabana and Ipanema - what could be better than that? Ideal apartment for us as a couple with no kids on the trip. Plenty of room and all the facilities needed. Plenty of opening windows etc for fresh air rather than aircon. Small balcony good for drying clothes on! Breakfast was fine without being lavish. There's a small supermarket about 400m away with everything you need. There's a small number of restaurants nearby. My only gripe was that one night we decided to stay in and order room service. I rang three times with no reply so had to go down to reception to drop off the order. At least when it arrived (on time) it was nice food and plentiful. Staff were pleasant and helpful, and all those on reception spoke English or at least understood my attempts at Portuguese! Used the pool a couple of times - not heated but plenty warm enough being in Rio.
Given that we didn't spend too much time there due to being out and about seeing the sights, this was a hotel that gave us good value, and it wasn't as expensive as I thought it might have been. We booked online directly with the hotel, and had no hassles.

Room are really small apartments, with fully equipped living area (microwave, fridge, etc), bathroom and bedroom - great for a longer stay. Modern and well maintained, though a bit funny as they are very long and narrow due to the building shape!. Not very cheap (when USD<2R$), but good value for Rio. Small pool and fitness center (latter a bit too small, but who needs it with the available runs on the nearby promenades!) Well located between Cocacabana and Ipanama, in a quieter and safe area, close to small local restaurants and bars. Pleasant and helpful staff, who when I pressed got me checked in well before the checkin time. Decent wifi, and good free Brazilian coffee in the lobby. Walking distance to the metro, which is a great way to get about when not rush hourl

My colleague and I stayed in this hotel for two nights and were both pleasantly surprised at the size of the modern rooms. More like apartments actually. It's in the perfect spot, located in the middle of Ipanema and Copacabana. The staff are very accommodating and friendly. Lovely hotel and I will definitely stay there again if I were to ever (hopefully) return to Rio.

Near Copacabana, near Ipanema, just in the middle.
Hotel is a good choice for location and price. Rooms are actually appartments, with a lounge, kitchen, large TV in lounge, small TV in bedroom...
Free Nespresso in reception!!! Nice detail. Also Nespresso coffee for Breakfast. Breakfast selection was decent, but not huge.
Has also a swimming pool, sauna and fitness center, which we didn't use, so can't comment.

Room Tip: As high as possible... otherwise, no views at all... 4th floor has no views but the hotel next door...
