"Ocean View Suite overlooking Copacabana Beach is a delight!"
We had a corner right suite on the 9th floor looking out at the ocean. It was magnificent and when the weather cleared, we saw the Christ the Redeemer statue from the right side window. You never get tired of that view. The suite was spacious and perfectly furnished. The views in the evening and looking down on Copacabana beach were beautiful. The hotel was perfectly situated with a walk about 4 blocks to catch the Metro or a cab/van/shuttle and plenty of restaurants nearby. The only reason this hotel does not get a 5 rating is the food. The breakfast food was always cold and we had the pizza for lunch when we checked in the first day. It was not edible so we we ate all our meals out after that. The front desk was always helpful with wake up calls and contacting the car service for us. The view from the rooftop bar was spectacular as we caught it on a full moon night.
"Very nice hotel and location. But the details lack quality"
Had a nice suite overlooking the beach for a week. Also enjoyed the good views from the pool and fitness area at the top, day and evening. Staff was quite helpful. But some details seem to have less focus: Two of three towels delivered in the room are worn, thin and even torn. Ceiling paint in our shower area was cracked. Filling between and around tiles is done unprofessional and attracts dirt etc. Painting was spilled on the cabinets when the ceiling in the bedroom was some day in the past painted Beer drinkers had chosen to sit on the stairs at the main entrance a couple of late afternoons. Staff accepted this. And a joke: In the book with hotel information there is a price list of different items in your room. Towels, drinking glass etc., The two bedside tables, around 75*75*75 cm’s made of light brown laminated wood looks quite cheap (like clothes cabinets and most other furniture) but has price tags around 1.000 usd :-) Each I assume. But still, a nice hotel in a nice location :-)
"Top location, decent hotel."
We treated ourselves to a junior suite as the price difference wasn't enormous. The room was excellent with a view right out onto Copacabana beach; I'm not usually one for coughing up extra for a bit of a view but if you do it anywhere, do it here - it really is special, especially for first time visitors as we were. Breakfast was fairly average - a reasonable choice of cold stuff with a few hot dishes - nothing to get too excited about though. Rooftop bar is a really nice location to chill out with a drink and soak up the view. The pool is very small. Staff mostly spoke English to some degree and the welcome we got on arrival was very warm. One of the two lifts was broken for our whole stay which was annoying - it wasn't until the last day that a doorman alerted us to the staff lift which was hidden round a corner. Location-wise, I'd say this place is perfect for a first time visitor to Rio. Taxis are everywhere - you can't miss them - but ipanema and leblon are a very pleasant walk away for anyone who fancies stretching their legs. I had absolutely no safety concerns when staying here but people we met later in our trip had been robbed whilst sunbathing on the beach just outside, so just be sensible and safe.
"Perfect location and amenities for the price"
First, this is not a five star property. However, for the price, there's not a better deal on Copacabana beach. Make sure to only go for the sea view rooms! Great beach bars directly across the street. Short walk to metro and vans (highly recommended) to hop up to The Christ. Also short taxi to Sugarloaf (20R or so max). Short walk to Impanema; beach bar hop this one, either beers or Caipirinhas (good luck on the later). Small supermarket and liquor store 2 min away. Good cheap beer bars down the alley to catch football games. Staff speak English and Spanish for the most part. Only suggestion for all, including hotel, is to reinforce suggestion from previous post: They MUST put felt pads on feet of chair legs, as due to laminate flooring in rooms, guests who drag chairs will either wake you up or keep you up.
"Fantastic stay. Safe pick."
I stayed here for a week at the end of September. The hotel is very tidy, organized, and the staff were very helpful with any inquiries I had. The rooftop hotel was a very nice place to enjoy drinks and tan/swim. Location is right in the middle of the Copacabana with the beach footsteps away. The breakfast was great and filling too. I highly recommend this hotel and I will stay here again in the future when I return to Rio.
