Highlights: location, bed and staff! Other than that, it's the worst hotel for the cost in Rio! First they show you nice rooms in the website. As soon as you check in, they put you in a trashy room! I decided to spend by birthday there, so I booked a suite for my parents and a standard room for me. My parents had to move because the carpet was so dirty that my father could barely breathe because of his allergy. The worst thing is the air conditioner. Every single day they turn all of them off during a certain time! Simply unbelievable and unacceptable!! Bottom line, you can go to better places for the same amount of money or just a little more.
"Nice place but should be renovated"
The hotel is nice on the veach in Leblon but needs lots of renovations at different levels ! Nice breakfeast ! I would not care normally with small things but the air conditionning failed to work properly which was a big thing since the windows were not to be opened ! Was hot and humid, I had to go to the beach in middle of the night for fresh air ! I asked the reception (a spanish language native man (from argentina) who was not nice at all ) to change late in evening but did not left us have another room with air conditioning working ! Not nice !
"The worst hotel in Rio by any measure"
It's frankly mind boggling that this hotel is rated 4 stars. It completely discredits the entire rating system. Hotel is really old, it's ugly, it's run down, it smells and front desk staff was rude and dismissive. I could sit here and go over everything that this hotel desperately needs to improve on and at but that would take me days. The ONLY thing they have going for them is the location and the breakfast. Room is more than basic. Bathroom is gross. I stayed one night because I had a meeting next door, and I refused to even take a shower!! I felt bad for my feet having to step in that tub; it looked like something out of a road side motel in Alabama (minus the cigarette stains). It's dirty, it's dark from decades of dirty feet. Terrible!! By far one of the worst hotels I've ever stayed in. I couldn't wait to check out and leave. So, unless you have a reason to stay here, do yourself a favor and stay elsewhere.
"Gorgeous view from the roof and right across from the beach"
Stayed at this hotel for 5 nights with a friend. There was some construction going on but it did not inconvenience us in any way. The staff was friendly and we had an easy check in experience. Booking was weird because they had a 4 night promotion going on but you couldn't use it when staying for 5 nights, so we had to create 2 separate bookings to take advantage of the 4-night discount. That said, they did allow us to stay in the same room the whole time, which was nice and clean and comfortable. I did not love the clear sliding doors on the bathroom (when you're sharing with a friend, this can be slightly awkward), but other than that it was pretty great. The roof deck had a sweet view of the entire beach. The beach is directly across the street, and the location was absolutely fantastic and walkable to tons of places. Breakfast was included as well.
"Wonderful location "
The hotel has one of best location in Rio de Janeiro. I didn't need to take a cab, because I could go by foot to all the places that I love it.My room was facing the Leblon beach, it was fantastic. The room was modest, but the bed was very comfortable, also they don't have carpet, I am allergic, so I consider a very important detail for my well being. The staff was very nice.
