The location of this hotel was prime - on the Copacabana, but you can walk to Leme or Ipanema (not sure if I would reccomend the walk, though). The room was spacious enough,but our room faced a wall. So no view there. The breakfast at the hotel was fantastic. The staff - could have been more helpful - we were there during Carnaval, so you would expect them to be armed with helpful info and tips on the city and where to go, which was not the case. Thankfully though, they did speak English quite well.
I think it was a pretty good deal considering it was during Carnaval, but I think I would stay on Ipanema the next time we visit.More
