"Good hotel 100 meters away from Copacabana Beach in a quiet street"
This hotel is located in the most commercial area of Copacabana, near Nosa Senhora de Copacabana Avenue and Santa Clara Street. It's located in Domingos Ferreira street, one block away from the beach, very quiet place, but there is no beach view from the rooms. Rooms are good, not too big and the decor is somewhat outdated, looks like the hotel remains in the 1980's.. Breakfast is good but not spectacular, and the service is top notch. If you dare to drive a car in Brazil, and Rio de Janeiro, they have Valet parking for a very reasonable daily fee. By the way, renting and driving a car in Rio de Janeiro is not for the faint of heart and recommended ONLY for those that have real driving experience in similar cities (Mexico, Sao Paulo, Buenos Aires or some East Asian place like Bangkok or Kuala Lumpur).
I chose this hotel because of the views of Christ the Redeemer - although you can see him you do have to bend round the corner a bit. It's very conveniently located to copacabana beach and the local metro station. The room was very spacious and clean and the staff were very helpful and attentive.
"Great location and price."
I found this hotel an excellent value for the price. Excellent breakfast buffet with a wide selection to choose from. Close to the beach and near by restaurants. Rooms are large and modern. Easy check-in and check out. I recommend this hotel to visitors to Rio looking for a nice place and a value rate.
"Decent value rooms in a good location"
Rooms are very good and not too expensive. We had a level 2 room and thought we might be disturbed by the street noise but we found it wasnt an issue and was actually handier to be closer to the lobby as sometimes the lifts can be slow to arrive, so we often used the stairs out of convenience. One of the minor issues with the hotel is that all tv channels are in Portuguese with only CNN in English , considering most of the clientele are foreigners it would seem like a reasonable suggestion to at least have a few more English channels. Fortunately for us the wifi was fast enough so that we could stream netflix. The rooftop pool is nice but too small for a hotel of this size and you should probably forget about swimming when there are already people in there. The location is pretty good, 1 block from Copacabana beach although i prefer the Leblon and Ipanema beaches which are quite a distance away. Breakfast had a decent variety of food and was open from 6am which is better than most places. The only shortcoming was the restaurant food was quite bland on the one night we ate there, I suggest finding other places to eat in the area over the restaurant or room service. Aside from that, staff were helpful and polite. Overall, we had a pleasant experience here.
"Helpful and professional staff"
Good quality rooms high standard of cleaning. Best breakfast we have had on our tour of South america. One block back from Copacabana beach if has a roof pool, bar and gym with views of beach. The staff were very helpful an professional. Well positioned for metro and shopping areas. Not an area that is completely safe at night but can order taxis to get around.
