    We were a group of 20 people.They let us use their meeting room and the breakfast room upstairs for group meetings/lunches and just getting together

    The hotel is in serious need of upgrade.The rooms are small ,los of things don't work.We had to ask for a room change and after pestering them they did give us a slightly better room (supposedly a junior suite,but in reality a slightly larger room)

    Good breakfast! Friendly staff excellent location, one block from the beach good showers/bathroom

    first room received horrible, needed to change it, not all rooms look good, make sure you ask There is a safe in the room but they make you pay extra for it:-( Hotel getting older, not much improvements made (for instance, bathrope with holes in them) Computer in room but nobody to repair it despite many requests

    Very spacious rooms given the shoe box rooms everywhere else on Copacabana beach....

    Rooms can be better maintained and more clean.

  • Group of friends

    Our air conditioner did not work the entire stay, we reported it to the front desk 4 times, and it was never fixed. Upon checkout, the manager said "too bad".

    The reception staff were helpful and nice The breckfast was great! The staying in generally worth the money :)

  • Group of friends
    5.0

    Close to copacabana. Friendly staff helped organize tour order taxis etc.

    The place looks nothing like the pictures on the web. It's not a design hotel really. Air conditioner was right over the bed blowing cold air and made me sick. Gym was dirty. Wi-fi also never worked in the room and barely worked in the lobby. Staff tried to help but still never worked.

  • Single

    Location is OK Wifi and breakfast included in the fee.

    It smells really bad. It is definitely not a 4 star. It is a scarce 3 star. Water filtrated into my room as it rained. A lot. Bathroom is old and ugly.

  • Couple
    5.0

    Great location for the beaches and nightlife.

    Hotel looked tired and our first room was much smaller than advertised. We were moved into a bigger room - during our stay we saw a number of cockroaches, the gym was a joke and the whole place is in urgent need of a refurb.

  • Group of friends
    6.2

    Breakfast is quite good.

    Rooms in low flats are quite better than in higher flats. Internet signal quite low. Breakfast space was little

  • 9.2

    The different designs on each floor are nice. On the site of the hotel you could have a look at the different styles. Our room on the 7th floor was very nice, especially the bathroom. The hotel staff was kind and helped us exploring the city.

    The windows on every floor have single glass. They are renovating at the moment (could give some noise, but only during the day {the average tourist doesn't stay at his hotel room at that time}), they told us they will replace all the windows to double glass.

  • 7.4

    Location, location, location: one block from Copacabana beach and a short walk into Ipanema. The front desk staff were beyond excellent--friendly, caring and attentive!!! They: > accommodated our early check-in request without a problem; > gave great advise on what to do, see and eat; and > followed up daily to make sure we were enjoying our stay. Housekeeping staff were friendly and efficient. The highlights of our accommodations were a firm, very comfortable bed and double shower with plenty of hot water. The breakfast buffet (included in the room rate) was large and very tasty.

    Since written reviews on this site start with the cons, I want to preface my comments by saying that we would go back to this hotel ..post renovation, though. The great front desk staff more than made up for any deficiencies described below. The hotel was renovating the pool and permanent restaurant. As a result, the lobby bar had been changed into a temporary restaurant. This wasn't a problem--there are plenty of places to drink in Copacabana and Ipanema--but it would have been nice to know before we finalized our booking. Construction noise was a problem on a few of the mornings and construction debris was constantly a problem in one of the two elevators. WiFi was spotty. The signal wasn't always strong and some areas within our sleeping room had dead zones. Several lights (in the bathroom and in the hallway between the bathroom and bedroom) were blown and/or not functional. It took forever for the toilet tank to fill, which was annoying because it was very loud. This problem was more disturbing than the construction. The breakfast was self-serve from a buffet, but the coffee was served by restaurant staff--and service could be dicey depending on who was working. 90% of the time, you had to ask for the coffee instead of servers coming around regularly (or when diners arrived) to offer it. Over our 2-week stay, I noticed diners getting frustrated with the delay and trying to get it themselves since the service pots were visible on a side table. The restaurant staff would always run them off and then start going around. It reminded me of a game of cat-and-mouse.

  • 7.4

    The location of the hotel was very convenient by Copacabana beach and staff was helpful and nice.

    The hotel is doing some refurbishment but the floor where I stayed didn't have any work done, so even if it was clean, it was quite old as well. The WiFi worked really bad, not even able to check e-mails.

  • 5.4

    Location was quite convenient.

    Stuff could be more helpful. They refurbished the Hotel and the noise was very annoying.

  • 8.8

    Very close to copacabana beach, 2 minutes walking distance The stuff is very helpful and always smiling

    The lift is a little bit slow but its ok

  • 7.8

    A more convenient spot you could not find just off the main drag of Copacabana beach and walking distance to Ipanema. Despite all the stories we'd heard, we felt safe though we were careful too. We did often come back late at night but kept to the main streets which were busy and well lit. We walked lots of places, took taxis and were even adventurous enough to do local buses all of which worked out fine. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. They did their best in English and we did our best in Portuguese and life was good. Comfortable bedroom, bathroom and a very nice breakfast with lots of choices of fresh fruit, baked goods, eggs, meats, yoghurt, cereals and of course coffee and tea.

    can't think of anything..
