I recently stayed at this hotel in late April 2013.
Hotel staff was very friendly. Knowledgeable of surrounding area, tourist sites etc. Hotel was literally 2 blocks from the beach ! very nice, and right in the heart of the Ipanema shopping area , also very nice and convenient to walking to the beautiful neihborhing Leblon area, but a little bit of a hike if you wanted to walk to Copacabana.
Room was ok, barewood floor could have used a nice rug to soften it up , bathroom was VERY small, I literally had to step out from the bathroom to dry myself off. ( my friends bathroom was much larger)
Would have been nice if they provided face/wash clothes, as it was they only provided hand towels and the larger towels. It did have a nice bidet hose next to the toilet for your cleaning pleasure.
Room could definitely used more AC outlets to charge your devices. As it was, I had to charge one of my 2 phones, in the bathroom ( not ideal)
Hotel / room had free wifi-big plus , and a nice ipod docking station/clock radio /speakers, to listen to your tunes.
Complimentary breakfast was provided by the hotel in the adjoining hotel next door.
Complimentary beach towels, and chairs etc. was a nice touch .
All in all...pretty good hotel, for the price. Bare bones, no frills but very close to the beach and restaurants/ shopping area.
I would probably stay there again.
