    good hotel convenient to beach

    This is so convenient for the beach and has an excellent swimming pool on the roof from which there is a great view. The room was large and the beds and bed linen excellent. The toilet had a very weak flush and easy clogged up and we kept having to reload the magnetic card which gave access and we were on the 14 floor. For Brazil, which normally has excellent breakfasts, I would classify this as OK as food was good and plentiful but unlike other Brazilian hotels I didn't find anything that I would describe as outstanding and certainly not a patch on the Trindade in Porto (Portugal) that I stayed in in the autumn.

    Overall nice stay

    What every room needs is just a water heater pot for your tea.. Otherwise it was a good overall stay, breakfast was fine. Safe place to be in ipanema.

    Great location, nice staff, terrible cleanliness

    Location of this hotel is perfect, right next to the Ipanema beach, walking distance to countless restaurants and Sunday flea market. Restaurant in the lobby was decent too, and staff was nice. But... if it wasn't for location, this would be at best a 2-star hotel. I am not a high maintenance person at all, but my room, especially the bathroom was disgusting. Old yellow appliances, dirty bathtub, dirty walls, leaking toilet, which didn't even flush, so I had to call maintenance. I was afraid to touch anything in the room, so I just spent most of the time in town. Thankfully, I was only staying one night! Again, I am not high maintenance AT ALL, but only expected basic cleanliness. And to add insult to injury, I paid extra for the Delux room, not even the Standard.

    coming more friendly then leaving

    Good location, good Japanese restaurant in house. Breakfast great. Pool people nice and friendly. But the fitness equipment sucks. Also the room needs renovation and the bed is too short for long guys. Reception like to think tourists are rich and sends you to the expensive places. Asked for hairdresser and the send me after a call to a place where they immediately raised the price 25% from regular and I got cut by an amateur.

    Great hotel in Ipanema! Close to tons of restaurants and the beach!

    This hotel was excellent. Large, comfortable room with friendly and helpful staff and excellent breakfast. One block from the beach and so close to every kind of restaurant. We didn't need to leave a 3 block radius to have the best trip! Great place!

    Entire rooftop deck CLOSED

    The entire rooftop area- pool, bar, and lounge-was closed. That was a big reason I booked this particular hotel. I feel like it was a misrepresentation to advertise a rooftop deck with a pool and lounge and for it to be not available. I should hope to be compensated.

    Well-located, 1 block from the beach. Excellent breakfast with outdoor tables. The desk staff are very friendly and accommodating. Hotel construction & rennovation on creates some day time noise.

    Location is stellar

    Half a block from the beach, wonderful rooftop pool with great views, this property would score 4 stars if the breakfast were improved and they put installed some beach-view windows. Pricey, but not too out of line for Rio.
