being in Rio de Janeiro without pool
pool was closed, it was not in conditions of use, very bad outdoor facilities. being in Rio de Janeiro in a 4 star hotel without a pool costing over $100 a day is absurd

10/10 Exceptional

I absolutely loved André upon our very early arrival into Brazil. Andre was so wonderfully accommodating to accept our early check in further charming us with adjusting our original room to the exact room we booked in the pictures. Taking absolute care of us! The breakfast for me was perfect! There was fresh fruit everyday that I absolutely enjoyed with a fried egg. The room service I wish went until midnight the salmon with rice and black beans and salad was amazing. The shower water pressure was superb! Location not even a full block away from the beach Great location and service for price. My only disappointment was the gym and pool being unavailable. Other than that I would recommend for a short stay or long stay in the double suite only

4/10 Fair

The property was ok. They tried to give me a smaller room and when I complained, they took me to another room that was even smaller. I had to get serious for them to give me the junior suite. At that time I was so tired of going downstairs I said fine. I did not have the junior suite on my reservation! I had the executive suite and they gave me a much smaller room. I want a refund for the room not given! They should only charge for the room they put me in! Very disappointed and will not be going to that hotel anymore!

Breakfast was good but the hotel itself was run down especially our room. The noise level in our room was horrible. It sounded like the window was open even though it was closed. You can hear everything that is happening on the street at night.

Location - one step from Copacobana
Hotel looks dated when you arrive but the rooms are nearly refurnished and clean. Stayed in delux room which faced the city and you could see the beach (copacobana). Bed was super huge and comfortable and the room is a good size. Very clean rooms and overall felt safe/comfortable. The breakfast was amazing. Good selection and everyday we were satisfied. Location is amazing, just one street from copacobana beach and 15mins to Ipanema beach. There are plenty of food places to eat and there is a snack bar right opposite the hotel which is open until very late and does great burgers and Acai. It's super cheap too. The hotel has a rooftop, a small swimming pool, gym and steam room. Nothing fancy, bit poor in quality but it does the job. The rooftops has 360 views which are nice as you can see copacobana and Favalas. On checkout, we had to pay R20 each for hotel to keep our bags. Usually it's free but the hotel asked for cash.

No volveria
No fue una buena experiencia y paso a detallar los pros y contras del lugar. En principio, la ubicacion es perfecta, el desayuno esta bien y la ducha sale con mucha fuerza. Por el lado de las contras, que son mas que los pro, el precio parecia conveniente pero pagamos 20 dolares por dia de estacionamiento, si quieres toallas para la playa tienes que pagar 10 reales por dia por toalla, el lugar para desayunar es muy chico, lss paredes de la habitacion de carton y, como si fuese poco, el front desk no ayuda en nada. Yapa: Tardaron 25 minutos de reloj en traerme el auto cuando me quise ir.

6/10 Good

We stayed for two nights. Unfortunately the elevator wasn’t working part of the time and it made a high noise like an alarm all the time which was very unpleasant. Also the Wifi was very slow, in the room it hardly even worked at all. I cannot understand we still have these problems in 2023. Otherwise the room was nice and clean, the shower as well und the Airconditioning worked well. The breakfast was ok, sad that there are almost no vegan options.
