    The hotel was in a quiet area, convenient to the beach, The room was well equiped, comfortable and well cleaned. Free internet in lounge. Abundant and varied breakfast, hot , cold and fruit. All staff very helpful.

    Good location, near Ipanema and Copacabana. The room prices are "relatively" low for being located near Copacabana/Ipanema. Hotel is relatively clean, breakfast is ok (tasteless fruit juices though). Reception has friendly, but also unfriendly people servicing guests.

    Hotel is maximum a three star (international standard)! Far away from a four star!!!!!!!!!!!! Toilet had water running out on the backside. Hence, bathroom was always completely wet on one side of the floor. It was mentioned to the reception, but nothing was done. Pool on the hotel roof is tiny (~ 5x5 m)! The picture on this website is very misleading here! Same for the gym! Also very tiny: 4 rusty broken machines!!!!!!!

    Location! Walking distance to both Copacabana and Ipanema, incl the Ipanema Metro station. Very good staff. Clean room. Excellent breakfast. Free, fast internet (WiFi) in the room. Good value for the money.

    The room was really nice. I loved that all the desk front people spoke in English or Spanish. The service was good. It is close to Copacabana and Ipanema.

    Everything was good. I think the sauna is small and too hide. The swimming pool is a little small too.

    This was our favourite hotel during a month in South America. Two blocks to Copacabana beach and three to Ipanema shopping. Beautiful spacious room and big bathroom with plenty of places to put things. Breakfast wide range and good quality. Did not have great deal to do with staff but when we did they were helpful and efficient. Great view of Rio from the roof. We would definitely stay there again.

    i did not matter to us but the rooftop pool is nice but quite small, more a quick dip pool than a laze by it all day one.

    Fabulous

    Not a cheap hotel, but almost a bargain considering Rio's standards. The hotel is not an unforgettable one but offers fine rooms (with very loud a/c), an impressive breakfast buffet, many helpful staff (very useful to catch a taxi in Rio), a nice rooftop, and a truly excellent location between Copacabana and Ipanema (and only 300 meters from the Metro-station).

    The staff was responsive to problems we encountered.

    We stayed there during the huge Rio + 20 eco-conference and the hotel jacked up their prices about threefold. It was not a good value. Our first room, small and drab and facing the airshaft, had an air conditioner that leaked and formed a large puddle on the floor. When we raised hell, they moved us to a "super luxe" room, which was satisfactory.
