"Very convenient location and good service."
A convenient and quiet location which is very close to Copacabana beach. Rooms are spacious and very clean. The staff are friendly, helpful and fluent in English. The breakfast was very rich and variable every morning with a wide variety of exotic fruits. Refills were fast.
"Room for improvement"
We were given a tiny room with noisy a/c during our 4 day stay at the hotel. The room was extremely dark during the day and the room lighting was inadequate. There was no way to lock the door from inside and at 6am one morning we were shocked when someone entered our room! The staff were totally unconcerned and unapologetic when we told them and never bothered to investigate. The rooftop pool area was small and crowded. The hotel is located only two blocks from the beach, however we did not feel safe walking around at night. The positives are that the hotel and rooms were clean and the breakfasts good with a large selection.
"A bargain for the price; good location"
I was a little unsure about our reservation after reading several bad reviews but was pleasantly surprised and found the hotel to be a bargain for the price. It is well situated in Copacabana with very comfortable, spacious and clean rooms and modern bathrooms. The breakfast buffet was excellent with a wide range of fresh, tropical fruits. The roof deck pool was great and the staff friendly and helpful. The location was excellent for exploring the city. We had been a bit concerned about safety issues, but there were always plenty of taxis outside the hotel and it was only a short ride to the restaurants and shops (and beach) of Ipanema. There are also a number of restaurants and Churrascarias (recommend Carretao) within a short walking distance.
"We stayed for 7 night on our honeymoon"
I was our first time visiting Rio, and deciding for which hotel to book was very hard but i chooses this was due to good review of the hotel and everyone was talking about their amazing breakfast and am a big fun of breakfast. We dicided to peek Royal Rio Place and it was worth it. The breakfast was nice and had many variety but for me as Muslim believer we couldn't eat all the variety as the bacon,sausage were all porn. That was a sad part for me as i end up eating lot of eggs and different bread and cakes. The also had dessert on breakfast buffet and that was so good. My advice on breakfast buffet please put different types of meat/ sausage on the menu. The front desk services was amazing the help us pick which tour we should go and our tour guard NECTO was perfect, i recommend him, his English was good and he made us enjoy our City tour. At night the hotel gave us suggestion on what night club/bar we should go in LAPA and all the suggestion were great. In short the hotel is great my room was good i stayed are room 312 i think we were the only Black people in the hotel from Africa and the hot water was perfect. The pool was great on top floor and the lady who was serving on the pool side she is friendly, i forgot her name. Its true its three block from Copa cabana beach, you just walk to the beach. Me and my husband we enjoyed our stay. NB: City tour ask for NECTO you will love his service.
"We stayed here for 3 nights in late January 2017."
Very helpful staff. Food good. Well situated. Location close to Copacabana Beach. After our stay we flew to see Foz do Iguacu Falls (unmissable) before flying back to Rio for another 2 days. We had no hesitation in picking this hotel for our extra 2 nights. What higher recommendation can be given'
