“A heavenly refuge from the overpriced hostels of Rio”
Reviewed January 2, 2008

I stayed in this hotel with my friend during our backpacking tour of Brazil. Staying in a hotel was a splash out treat in our efforts to recover from dirty hostels and communal bathrooms.

On arrival to the hotel we were greeted by staff that actually wanted our trade and their hospitality extended throughout stay. Our room was a reasonable size and immactuately clean. The room had a lovely little balcony that overlooked a bustling street and caught the sunset. The breakfast was faultless. I'd have no problem staying here again though i would look a proper view of the Copacabana!

First off, the service of the hotel is very well and the people at the front desk speak pretty fluent english. Even the doormen were really kind and spoke in little conversations. When you first walk in it seems very elegant with nice marble flooring and very nice furniture with a bar on the side. Elevators take FOREVER to move up and down the hotel, but there is I think 12 floors so take your pick on elevator or stairs. The rooms themselves are very plain, nothing fancy at all, but overall a decent and clean room. There's two things about the location of the hotel. One is that it is very close to the Copacabana Beach, which is very beautiful and a very big joy and great for relaxation.The flip side is that the hotel is right in the center of things as far as the neighborhood. Everything is so close to each other, almost no breathing room.Couple tips for Brazil in general..DO NOT go out at night, in can be very, very dangerous with easy pickpocketers..If you're going to buy something off of a vendor, DO NOT just pay what they ask. Drop the price 15-20 Reals and bargain a little. They can't say no cause they'd rather get something then nothing, especially from an american. Last, just have fun! Brazil is a beautiful place to visit and recomended it to anyone.

The hotel could not be located in a better place, it´s near Copacabana, virtually just 2 (small) blocks from the sea front and near some really nice places to eat out. The decoration is a bit outdated and I wouldn´t recommend a nightly stroll on your own, although I never felt unsafe, do get a taxi after the sun is down. Breakfast was simple but tasty. Don´t fall for their tropical breakfast feast: it is a just Continental breakfast but staff is attentive and kind. Be sure to request a room facing Belfort Street as they are bigger, rooms at the rear of the hotel are very smokey and really small.If you´re a looking for a simple hotel but in the heart of fun, then this is the place for you!
