This hotel has good and bad points.
Location. It is located in the charming neighborhood of Leblon and just few steps to the more famous Ipanema. My room had a beatiful view of the beaches (Leblon and Ipanema) and of the Chrsit.
Breakfast. A good assort of fruits and bakery.
Gym center. Yes, it is a tiny one, but as no one uses (or at least was not using it while I was there) it you will have no problem on its size. Best of all, a gorgeous overlook to the "Morro Dois Irmãos".
Complementary internet just in the lobby area and the signal was not good.
Worst of all, decor is outdated. It has a very 80's feelings. It not an 80's revival, but 80's as it really was in the 80's, although in good state to be fair. Ok that TV is quite new and the shower is really strong, but a minimum update shoud be welcome.
If you do not bother about theses issues, this property can be a very good choice. If it was not this, I would rate the hotel as 4 star.More
