The hotel is located at the Rue Visconde de Piraja, a main shopping street, just 2 blocks behind the Ipanema beach. You walk to the beach within a couple of minutes. The hotel is Ipanema, to the side of Leblon, both upclass and safe area's to walk around.
The hotel is of a nice size, not too big, and the rooms were renovated with wooden floors, new bathrooms and tasty interiors.
The staff is friendly and helpful. Breakfast is being served in the restaurant around the corner of the street (acces via hotel in the morning). For diner you can also use the restaurant, but then via the outside. The restaurant is not part of the hotel, that why.
There is no swimming pool, but hey, you have one of the nicest beaches on the planet around the corner.
My room was at the backside of the hotel, still some noise from the streets. Anyhow, in the middle of Rio I consider that normal. I think the quiet rooms are at the backside.
Wifi was good, both in the room as in the lobby.More
