I checked in to a triple room with two other friends. We went up to the 9th floor and saw our room. Initial impression is that this hotel seemed like it was an old building that could use some refurbishing, but was serviceable. I saw that there were quite a few (maybe 15-20) bugs crawling around the headboards of the beds. I am not sure what a bedbug looks like (and my friend thought these were ants) -- however, I do not want to take chances with bedbugs. So I went down to reception to inform them, and request a room change. Their initial response was to change the pillows. This was not acceptable. We were moved to another room on the 9th floor, which was a little bigger, but only 1 bed (for 3 people). The maid turned the couch in to a bed, and 2 of us shared a queen size, so it worked out. This room was much better than the previous and seemed well kept. Your experience here could vary, but based on the overall condition of the hotel, and the quality of our first room it is hard for me to recommend this hotel to others.
On the plus side, the location on Rua Santa Clara is nice because it is basically central Copacabana and you can easily walk to either end of the beach for different restaurants, bars, places. The hotel staff were pretty nice, but I still would have appreciated a different suggestion for bugs other than to change pillows.
