If you are looking for a basic, safe place to stay with quick/free wireless internet (really), this is a very good choice. At first, the room they gave me was not great as they had some major improvements going on. I asked to change rooms, which they did without hesitation, and my new room was very good. I decided to turn on the A/C as it was still warmer at night than I would prefer to sleep. It worked just fine, but the moisture leaked onto the floor. I let them know and the next day, I had a new A/C unit in the room. So, they were very responsive to any issues. The one thing that I wanted and could not get was an iron and ironing board. I tried every way, but they would prefer to charge $40 to iron your shirt rather than let you iron it. So, I just had more wrinkled shirts than usual. Due to the high humidity, the wrinkles didn't stay for too long. The section of the beach where this hotel is located is one of the best in Rio. The security is good here as later at night they litterally lock the front door and only unlock for guests. The bed, sheets, towels, etc. were just OK, but all clean. Did not see any bugs, dirt, etc. anywhere. The shower was very good! I would definitely stay here again. Again, if you are looking for a "really nice" place to stay, this is not it. The room did have a wall mounted LCD TV, 110 and 220 power outlets (including USA connection), included the usual shampoo/conditioner/soap/shower-cap that you would expect (bring your own lotion). The room included breakfast, but I did not try it. There are even two computers in the lobby with internet access. So, if you don't bring your own, you can still get online for free. Enjoy! Tchau.
