At first, you may be surprised by a nice lobby. Front desk service is quite good.
Unfortunately, the rest is not the same.
You have two types of rooms - regular and "luxury".
We stayed 4 days in the hotel, the frist 3 in the regular and the last one in the "luxury", due to a problem in our room.
The regular rooms are quite simple. Small bathroom.. Very humble. Don't expect much, like the nice lobby.
The Luxury room was ok.. although the one we got had some cleaning problems in the bathroom.
Breakfast is quite nice.
The hotel has a great location, in the middle of Copacabana (not on the beach though). You have to walk 2 blocks. Also quite close to the Metro Station (around 5-10 minutes walking).
As we mentioned, Rio has gotten very expensive in hotels, and this is an interesting option to save some money, compared to other hotels in the region.
Since we barely stayed in the room (only to sleep).. we didn't mind the small and cheap rooms.
One problem: the beds are ridiculously small. A double bed barely fit me.
2 blocks away you have the Bicycle program from Rio's City Hall, so thats nice too!
