We used this hotel as our base for 10 days during the World Cup, which is longer than I spend in most hotels so we got to know it quite well.
Overall its a solid choice, the bedrooms arent spectacular but they are clean and relatively modern, the bathrooms felt a little older and more worn. The service was excellent throughout, the breakfasts were very good, and the location is great if you are looking to be on the Copacabana. Wireless access is good, and housekeeping, laundry etc are very prompt. Excellent and very warm rooftop pool with great views.
However, the structure of the hotel with many rooms, but spread between so many floors with few rooms on each floor, means that you can spend a really long time waiting for elevators, and sound insulation between rooms isnt great. The restaurant offerings I found relatively disappointing, wasnt impressed with the Italian restaurant on the ground floor, and when we ordered a burger from the poolside bar, we got a really poor burger, like one of those frozen patties you get at sports grounds, served along some cold fries, which was a bit surprising.
Overall though, the hotel coped really well with the crowds of the World Cup and I think they did a good job, and we enjoyed our stay here, its a good choice.
