“Hotel condition”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

I stayed there and enjoyed it overall.
People at the desk were very cordial and helpful. Spoke English well.
Decent food for breakfast.
Room were clean.
Needed help getting the TV to work.
Toilet seat didn't stay up.
Didn't figure out a way to call the front desk from the room so i made a local call to the hotel.....and then they charges me for the call $1!
Unfortunately they put me in room 102. Facing the street.
At 3 AM the garbage trucks came to clean the street. It was unbearably noisy.
The designer of the rooms needs to go back to school. The noisy AC unit blows right on the bed. Doesn't really cool the sitting room.

Room Tip: Ask for upper floors facing in.

In a lot of other cities this hotel would have been over priced but in Rio it represented fairly good value. Our "suite" room included a small kitchen area, lounge, bedroom, bathroom & balcony. Whilst there was a microwave & hob, in reality cooking anything other than a microwave meal or reheating food would have been tough. No pots or proper dishes included and a fridge rammed full with their items for sale in the form of a mini bar. Our unlimited wi-fi was included in the price, but unfortuately was a little intermittent. Our toilet got blocked but maintenance arrived within 5 minutes to fix it. Breakfast was a good spread with a lot of variety. Generally staff were very helpful. Whilst the room was clean, the decor & furnishings seemed tired. Where this hotel did score was its location which is perfectly placed in a lively area of Copacabana. Bars & restaurants are everywhere and the beach is just a two minute walk away.

tons of eating places nearby including many restaurants on Avenida Atlantica, a block away. A/C in bedroom did not adequately cover the liiving room and there was no separate unit there. Wiffi weak. Plenty of space, small stove, micro, fridge. Bathroom & breakfast ok.

This hotel is great value for money in an expensive city to stay in. Only 1.5 blocks from Copacabana beach and much cheaper than the hotels at the beach. Lots of shops, cafes, take-aways, supermarkets within a block of the hotel.

Rooms are actually apartments - kitchen, lounge, bedroom, bathroom and balcony. Very spacious - not luxurious but functional and clean. The public areas and leisure facilities are looking a bit dated and need to be given some new life!

Breakfast is included and has a good selection of hot and cold items. Wifi is also included and works well. Staff are good and reception speak good English.

Stayed here recently for three nights and would certainly recommend to others. Convenient location, the hotel is easy to find with the beach nearby along with the Metro and buses running to the major attractions in close proximity. Staff spoke good English, were helpful & gave accurate directions. Our apartment was spacious with a mini kitchenette although with such a good location you are spoilt for choice with places to eat. Usual room amenities including air con, we did find one english speaking channel which kept us satisfied + wireless was fast! The bathroom was small but the powerful shower made up for it, we would stay here again...

Good location within easy walking distance to beach, restaurants and shopping. The area was safe for walking. Nice pool where you could find shade most of the day. Room was like a small apartment with kitchen. Air conditioned which was important as it was 36+ degrees. The front desk staff spoke English and were very helpful in negotiating taxi fares. Internet was complimentary.
