I selected this hotel based on review. Ipanema is bit quiter than Copacabana so selected this. I had initially blocked a 100USD room but found it too small and window without any view, so moved to road facing (with partial beach view) room costing 280 R$ and one final day of stay to the best room costing 480 R$ (top floor and beach facing). The staff were co-operative when I asked for child bed at last moment. Rooms were clean, bathroom average,bed a bit bouncy and due to wooden partition between rooms, I could hear sounds from neighbouring room. Staff was decent , speak understandable English and well mannered. Restaurant is good only for morning complimentary breakfast, food is overpriced and I think locals prefer for the view and drinks only. Good view of beach when having breakfast. Restaurant packed on weekends.You can walk out from restaurant to the beach so very conveniently located. They do not have electronic safes but I found all items in place so guess its safe. Service fee in cash has to be paid at time of checkout so spare some cash. Supermarket and Dominos pizza are real close. You can walk to Copacabana but >10 mins distance.If the beach room is what you want and you are OK with budget treatment for a bit high price (for location) then go for it.
