“Great location”
Reviewed May 29, 2010

This is a very nice hotel with a fantastic location. It is right opposite Ipanema beach with great views.
The lobby was impressive and the room was clean and spacious with a very nice bathroom and side view of the beach.
Room service was of good quality but very expensive. Breakfast was not included in our room rate and we didn't try it so I can't comment.
There is a very small rooftop swimming pool which has a good view but was covered (conservatory style) so not good for sunbathing. The cocktails served here are wonderful.
The hotel is very secure and you need your keycard to go pretty much anywhere which is comforting.
The location of this hotel makes it an ideal choice for a luxurious stay, right in the centre of the action.

Stayed February 2009, traveled as a couple

The location is great, although the building fro outside is rather ugly. Inside it is dark and outdated. Do not take a room without see view.

The hotel was indeed well located and the staff very good. I took heed of all the mentions of high food prices at the hotel and mostly steered clear of eating there. However, I did order coffee from room service and actually thought it was a very reasonable 8 reals. In fact, on two other days I went to the restaurant for a take out coffee and they gave it to me at no charge. The bartender was also good and I didnt think prices there were too high either - about 27 reals for a glass of wine and a bottled water which is similar to what it would be at any other high end hotel. Finally, the concierge was very good scheduling a tour for me, taxi services and coming to my room immediately when I needed an adaptor or help connecting to the internet. All those little things add up and make the difference between a pleasant stay and an irritaing one for a business traveler so I would stay there again.

Really really really Poor -
Paid $800 USD per night for 10 nights and got the executive master suit... had an argument with the management on arrival due to the fact they had not provided two single beds in Room as promised, I had rang twice prior our arrival to remind them.
No tea & coffee facilities in room! stuck up staff! and generally a very shabby hotel would suit ether Brazilian guys on business or weird Europeans that like paying big bucks for scruffy hotels in 3erd world country's.
I'm English and now Live in Rio and its very very hard to get a decent hotel for an honest price and really wish you all the best of Luck trying to do so... maybe you might find some comfort in the Marriott as they give better serves due to having plenty of Americans staying.
Much of the time here in Rio when in Hotels/restaurants you receive rude and arrogant serves, I don't know why? Maybe some thing to do with the history of the country or that they think by acting in that manor there being posh or some thing... anyway good luck!

Great location on Ipanema Beach. The locals consider this one of the top three hotels in Rio. The surrounding area has nice restaurants and it felt perfectly safe to walk around, even late. I cannot say the same for Copocabana. The view from my room wasn't anything to write home about, but the view from the top floor restaurant and pool is awesome (pic attached).

We had a guaranteed accessible room facing the ocean. When we arrived at midnight from London, there was no accessible room available. We were put into a regular room where my wheelchair could not go through the bathroom door.

After some discussion, we were given a suite for the night. It was gorgeous and overlooked the ocean from a high floor. The next day we were offered the accessible room which looked out onto a brick wall! We refused to accept that because we had been guaranteed an oceanfront room and we were not prepared to travel all the way from London and look at nothing. Management graciously offered us the suite for the rest of our stay (2 more days) and then went out and bought a raised toilet seat for me! They could not have behaved better.

This is not a holiday resort hotel but it has a nice but very small pool on the top with chairs, tables and umbrellas and is shielded from the wind. Just across the road is the beach and the hotel is well placed in a safe area of Rio. The staff were more than helpful. I do not know where some of the comments have come from!
