Very Good Compared to the Competition

Visited during an unusually crowded week, so the price was much higher than normal, otherwise my "value" rating would have been higher. Great location - two blocks to the beach, very good restaurants two blocks the other. Very nice breakfast, and staff was accommodating for a schedule change even though it was so busy. Couple of big bugs in the room, but the actual housekeeping was very good.

The hotel has everything you need, the room is small however with a modern and clean look, the bed is very comfortable. Location is great, 2 minutes walking from the best spot at Ipanema Beach, nice restaurants, bars around.

Excellent location and value

I was participating in a conference a bit away but opted to stay nearer the Ipanema beach and was extremely impressed with this hotel. Clean, professionally staffed, always someone who spoke excellent English at the front desk, helpful bellboys, quiet and comfortable rooms with everything working perfectly -- and all two minutes walk from the beach. Great part of town with restaurants and shopping too.

Great Location!

The location of the hotel was perfect. It was exactly two short blocks from the Ipanema Beach (Posto 10). The hotel offered a delicious buffet breakfast daily which filled us up heartedly until dinner. We thought the rooms were smaller than we are accustomed to but it was very neat and modern. There was air conditioning but I would have preferred central air and maybe a few other amenities. Other than that quite enjoyable and front desk were very kind and helpful.

Incredible Construction Noise

Awoke every am at nine to extremely loud banging. Also, hotel charged me for my stay at checkout assuring me that Orbitz had not charged my credit card. When I was later able to show that I was double-billed, was such a hassle to get a refund. To make it worse, the hotel rate was $40 per night less than on Orbitz, but I had to pay the higher rate. Hotel itself is pretty nice. Staff professional but not friendly. Room was well furnished but view was terrible. Bathroom was modern and clean. All in all, a nice hotel that probably deserves 3-4 stars, but I would not recommend it for late sleepers till whatever construction they are doing is finished.
