            • Couple
              5.0

              The Portinari Hotel is well located just off Copacabana beach. The staff were helpful.

              The rooms were dirty and in need of a good clean and repaint. The price is exorbitantly expensive and does not offer good value for money. The gym/sauna/jacuzzi area is appalling and not fit for use. There was a constant unpleasant toilet smell in the hotel. The hotel was so dirty that we did not chance eating breakfast there even though we had paid for it! It is unfortunate because this hotel could potentially be a great boutique-style hotel in a popular tourist area.

            • Couple
              5.4

              Location

              Really disappointed by the interior of the room: very essential and very little of design show off: the denomination of the room as "luxury double room" is really misleading. Lateral sea view means actually seeing the sea by leaning out of the window.

              Bsolutely nothing I have stayed at the hotel 4 times before but I now give up. Bad service not even considering the price is it budget friendly little value for your money

              We had a bad experience since we checked in until we left. No room ready even if reserved 1 week ahead had to wait and was given a time for check in 13.00 and came back but still no room and we were asked to understand that they had a lot of rooms to clean and had too complain loudly in order to get a room,which was cleaned in a hurry and not satisfactory. Room noisy early in the morning people calling several times the cleaning lady on our floor and ringing could be heard loud as from 7 in the morning. Bed clothes were old and worn out yes open holes in them. Coffee,express was charged 2,5 us and not worth it and the buffe was below experience from my other stays at this hotel. You easily noticed that they were saving on quality. Staff at the front desk had little time for you as they were busy with there cellphone and chatting loudly with each other!!!!!!! Dont work with this hotel

            • Group of friends
              3.2

              Absolutely disgraceful, very rude evening manager, Most of the rooms were in bad condition, has not maintained the place, drains were clogged, Air conditioning unit was leaking and dropping lots of water for two days and they did not fix it inspite of promising to do so. On the third day it spewed out black liquid stuff which messed up the wall and the floor was spewed with this black gunk. When we asked to change room were told give them one hour and will have new room. After five hours new front desk staff comes in and claimed had no idea about the problem and no rooms available. Talking to the manager was like talking to the wall. The worst experience we have ever had. We were a group of ten couples and all had some problem with the hotel Liked nothing

              Location was ok

            • Couple
              4.6

              Room was clean

              I chose portinari because the hotel I usually go to was fully booked it looked ok from the website but even though my expectations were low they were not met; room was old and not renovated, most stuff (though not all) were unfriendly, public rooms partly sucked (whirl pool ?!?);

            • Older travelers
              4.2

              The checkout was friendly...

              The rooms were not clean, far away from a design hotel looking at furnishings. The staff were three star level put into five star uniforms. All in all no value for money.

              7.0

              It is in an excellent location.

              Assistance with local info and tours.
