Block from the beach

Location is perfect, just a block from the beach. Close to a lot of good restaurants, supermarkets, bars and the subway was only 2 or 3 blocks away. Free umbrellas and chairs for guests. Staff is very helpful, spoke very good English. Had an adaptor for my phone which was helpful. Check-in was slow, took longer than expected but they gave me a free drink while I waited. Buffet breakfast was great, good selection and range of foods. WI-FI worked well. Pool was being fixed, wasn't in operation when I stayed there. Rooms were cleaned regularly with no problems. Place had good security. Was a little noisy as I was only on the 7th floor. A bit pricey, but not outrageous.

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.

Repeat customer

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.

Perfect Location, The rest….?

The location couldn't have been better. Especially if you are gay. 2 blocks from the gay beach, 2 blocks from great gay bars. Everything is easy and walkable. The hotel was fine...

Don't tip. It's already added to the bill but they don't tell you. So if you tip at all over you are really wasting your money.
