“Good location - Ipanema beach”
Reviewed January 13, 2014 via mobile

Good hotel right on the ocean on Ipanema beach. Helpful friendly staff.. Nice room with ocean view.. Good buffet breakfast . Do not miss the sunset from the rooftop pool area . Plenty of bars and restaurants within walking distance . There didn't appear to be any security issues in this area . The only annoying thing were the lifts.. Too slow!

Excellent breakfast.
The Italian restaurant in the hotel was also very good.It was also nice to take a drink at the roof top bar with excellent view. (The pool is very,very small)
Just after our arrival an intense tropical storm with extreme winds and rain erupted and water came in around the windows. We called housekeeping and they came immediately and put towels to stop the water, so this was not really a problem and the following days the weather was perfect.

Room Tip: Sea view is excellent but you need to pay extra for these rooms.

The hotel itself was very good. The staff at the hotel, especially the breakfast staff can do with some training and all over the staff is very unfriendly.
With the exception of the Bar man on the rooftop pool area. He was amazing and friendly!
Good breakfast also!

Nice rooms but smaller than expected. Right on Ipanema beach with great views . Pay extra for the view - we didn't and looked out on tall buildings with the mountains in the background. We were steps away from where "The girl from Ipanema". Great little restaurant with great food. Don't miss the rooftop bar. Great breakfast and free WiFi.

Room Tip: Pick ocean view

Stayed 4 nights in November 2013 . Good hotel right on the ocean . Helpful friendly staff . Very nice huge room . Excellent buffet breakfast . Do not miss the sunset from the rooftop pool area . Plenty of bars and restaurants within walking distance . There didn't appear to be any security issues in this area . The only annoying thing were the lifts , you could grow a beard while waiting for them.

I loved this place for the most part. The location was unbeatable. The room was decent -- no frills but totally civilized and thoughtful. The price was a bit expensive but seemed par for the course in terms of value in Rio, unless you go the hostel route. The front desk staff was helpful, charming and spoke English. Right around the corner is Zaza's restaurant, which I loved so much I barely could get myself to go anywhere else.

Cons: Elevators are slow. One member of the staff took my information from a bill, found me on Facebook and friend requested me out of the blue, then got upset with me (and told me as much) when I didn't accept his request right away. So unprofessional. Seriously???
